Are you ready to find out more about another book in the 2019 project “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway features? 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.

COWBOY UP by Michelle Beattie is this week's spotlight feature. This book is the first in her new Tangled Up in Texas series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Michelle's book:

“Beattie's first contemporary is satisfying, with a strong and well-constructed plot and will appeal to fans of stories about devoted, loving single parents”—Publisher's Weekly

Here's the blurb for COWBOY UP:

He’d never mixed business with pleasure…until now

When Dallas Granger left his family's Last Stand, Texas, ranch, he hadn't planned on returning. But when a medical emergency calls him home and a legal matter affects his business, suddenly his family isn't the only thing in need of a re-build. Unfortunately his new project involves building a house for a woman who not only awakens his desires, but also his fears. But if he wants to claim her as his own, he'll have to tear down the walls he's built around his heart.

Single mom Ashley Anderson knows all about juggling. Between an assortment of part-time jobs and raising her sixteen-year old daughter, she doesn't need a hunky construction worker with an attitude as a distraction. Even one who steps in to help her when she needs it most. But life has taught Ashley that when the going gets tough, she's on her own. It's going to take a man with a Texas-sized heart to show her that this cowboy isn't going anywhere.

Oh, a cowboy book! Cowboys make great heroes, don't you think? I'm guessing he'll be able to show the single mom that he isn't the type to run away. What do you think?
