Welcome to the 2019 project “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway posts! Some authors will be the same as in other features, but some will be brand new! In these posts, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2018 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.

First up is Christine Rimmer‘s SWITCHED AT BIRTH. The book is part of her The Bravos of Valentine Bay. I Here's what a reviewer had to say:

“This is a perfect addition to the Valentine’s Bay Bravo family. I love that Ms. Rimmer brings back some of the earlier characters from this series so we can ‘catch up’ with what’s going on in their lives. Spend some time with old and new friends in Valentine’s Bay. A very enjoyable read.”—Amazon Reviwer

Here's the blurb for SWITCHED AT BIRTH:


Ever since Madison Delaney learned she was switched at birth, her life has been in a tailspin. The Hollywood actress arrives in Valentine Bay hesitant to reveal herself to her new family, but she quickly encounters Sten Larson living next door. The down-to-earth shipbuilder makes Madison question everything she thought she wanted. Can a movie star find happiness in small-town Oregon?

So the title of this one adds a lot to the blurb. I can really imagine her hesitant to reveal herself. I hope she finds what's missing in that small town. What do you think?
