This is the final “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway features from the 2019 project. Thanks for supporting the project and these authors. In May, we start over again with the 2020 project (which is currently on hold due to COVID-19!) In these posts, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2019 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to three Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle, Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM, and VA Portland Health Care System in Vancouver.

In week's spotlight is Tule Publishing's ONE-OF-A-KIND BRIDE, a new release by Charlene Sands, who also supports the tote bag projects on her own, too. Here's what a reviewer had to say about the book:

“A reunion dreams are made of! With a delightful sweet romance, Charlene Sands brings her readers a heartfelt reunion of summertime friends and first loves in ONE-OF-A-KIND BRIDE. The characters are fun, their connection feels like they were never apart and the added depth of the family and friends around them makes for a romantic reunion. I loved their story!” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for ONE-OF-A-KIND BRIDE:

It’s a promise she intends to keep at all costs

Taylor Preston never breaks a promise, especially to her dying mother about following her dreams to become a successful New York bridal gown designer. But when Taylor unexpectedly loses her high-profile job, she returns early to Last Stand, Texas where she happily spent childhood summers, to help with her cousin’s wedding. On Taylor’s first day back, the boy she left behind twelve years ago comes to her rescue and her sleeping heart inconveniently reawakens.

All during their youth, Ryan “Coop” Cooper played Taylor’s “promise game,” and they never once broke a promise to each other, but that was years ago, and Coop, now an established contractor, isn’t the same person. Building a wedding gift she-shed brings Coop closer to Taylor. They recall their promises – silly and solemn – and realize the spark could easily once again flame.

But Taylor’s life is faraway and Coop, a single father, won’t risk his heart or his daughter’s again…
