February has arrived, and I have another 2019 project “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway feature for you. 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.

THREE WAYS TO CATCH A COWGIRL by Linda Goodnight is in this week's spotlight. This is book seven in her Calypson County, Texas series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Linda's book:

“Oh this book was SO good! It was an emotional rollercoaster for me! … There's so much heart in this book, you need to read it!” -Goodreads Reviewer

Here's the blurb for THREE WAYS TO CATCH A COWGIRL:

Step One: Unlock her frozen heart.

She can’t risk her heart again.

Mesa Brazos had her chance at happily-ever-after and she lost everything. After her marriage imploded, the trick-riding cowgirl had a crisis of faith that sent her home to Refuge, Texas. Now she’s holed up on the ranch she and her sisters inherited, training horses. She’s not interested in falling in love again. It’s too painful.

He has a deep need to protect.

Undersheriff Evan Young is a single dad and his daughter—a heart transplant recipient—is everything to him. So what if he’s a little overprotective? After losing his wife, he couldn’t bear it if anything happened to his little girl Ava.

When Evan’s protectiveness stifles Ava, it’s Mesa who brings back the spark of joy to his little girl’s life. But will the secret of Ava’s transplant break Mesa’s heart all over again?

Oh, this sounds like an emotional read. I enjoy Linda's books so much, and I can't wait to add this one to my Kindle. I'm very curious about the “secret.” What do you think?
