Here's another new author to the 2020 “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway features. Usually these follow the Mother's Day tote bag projects, but this year that is on hold. As soon as we can reschedule the authors and I will get tote bags to the three Fisher Houses. But until then, enjoy these books from the authors who will be sponsoring the 2020 Mother's Day thermal bags for 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. They will also be participating in the big readers giveaway at the end of the project!

In this week's spotlight is Maryann Jordan‘s new release TATE. This is book six in her Lighthouse Security Investigations series. Here's what one reviewer had to say about the book:

“It is a well written exciting story, it has drama some action and suspense, with friendships and family and love. The characters are well developed with some really great chemistry and an undeniable connection. This story tugged at my heartstrings at the start and just kept me hooked till the very end.”—Bookbub Reviewer

Here's the blurb for TATE:

Country music, his parents, cold beer, and apple pie…just a few of the things Frank Tate loves. The former SEAL, now a Lighthouse Security specialist also loves his job and lives for the next mission.

But when a call from home sends him back to the mid-west, the past and present collide as danger follows the girl he left behind years before. Will Tate and his fellow Keepers save her in time to see if she has a place in his future?

Lighthouse Security Investigations

The Lighthouse SI Keepers were men and women from the SEALs, Rangers, Special Forces, Deltas, and AF Special Ops. All having been trained in CIA Special Ops, the Keepers were the best of the best and ready to take on any mission.
