I have another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway from our 2018 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.

In the spotlight is Melanie D. Snitker‘s new release MARRYING CHRISSY. This is book #3 in her Brides of Clearwater series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Melanie's book:

“I loved this beautiful romance about working through differences to find true love. The story was well crafted with an intriguing cast of characters especially that of Gran.I recommend this book to those who love sweet romance.” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for MARRYING CHRISSY

From fake relationship to forever love

Wyatt Tabor is feeling the pressure. His wealthy parents won't support him unless he settles down and commits to the family business, while his ever-patient, loving grandmother longs to see him fall in love and be happy. After a broken engagement, he's not sure he's ready to trust someone else with his heart. With Gran's 90th birthday party coming up, he cooks up a scheme that he hopes will appease his family and give her a drama-free celebration.

Serving up coffee was never Chrissy's idea of a dream job, but she'll do whatever it takes to help her sister afford the medication she needs. When a handsome, smooth-talking customer offers to pay her to pose as his girlfriend, she can't help but say yes. After all, it's only for one night. What could go wrong?

Wyatt and Chrissy soon realize their feelings for each other are anything but pretend. When family dramas and class differences pull them apart, they must decide whether to walk away, or take a leap of faith and risk everything for love.
