This is the final “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway posts from our 2018 project! Next week I'll start with the the authors and publisher who are participating in our 2019 project! In these features, 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.

I have Jennifer Snow‘s upcoming AN ALASKAN CHRISTMAS in the spotlight this week. The book is the first in her new A Wild River series. Here's what a reviewer had to say:

“Prepare to have your heartstrings tugged! Pure Christmas delight.”—New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde

Here's the blurb for AN ALASKAN CHRISTMAS:

In Alaska, it’s always a white Christmas—but the sparks flying between two reunited friends could turn it red-hot…

If there’s one gift Erika Sheraton does not want for Christmas, it’s a vacation. Ordered to take time off, the workaholic surgeon reluctantly trades in her scrubs for a ski suit and heads to Wild River, Alaska. Her friend Cassie owns a tour company that offers adventures to fit every visitor. But nothing compares to the adrenaline rush Erika feels on being reunited with Cassie’s brother, Reed Reynolds.

Gone is the buttoned-up girl Reed remembers. His sister’s best friend has blossomed into a strong, skilled, confident woman. She’s exactly what his search-and-rescue team needs—and everything he didn’t know he craved. The gulf between his life in Wild River and her big-city career is wide. But it’s no match for a desire powerful enough to melt two stubborn hearts…

This one features search-and-rescue which I love (given I wrote a five book series about a mountain rescue team!) This one features a hero who is the heroine's friend's brother. Not sure if reunited implies a second chance romance with this one or no. I love that it's a Christmas book! Will be looking forward to this one. What do you think?
