A new week means 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.

MEANT TO BE by Nan Reinhardt is in this week's spotlight. This is the second book in her Four Irish Brothers Winery series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Nan's book:

“…a touching love story that has been in the making for years, only now it’s moved to another level. The trouble is going to be that Megan doesn’t believe that Sean is thinking clearly, she thinks that he sees her as a safe haven after the shooting. It will take Megan a while to set aside her fears and truly trust in the love that she and Sean share. There are going to be issues, misunderstandings, and outright stubbornness before this couple finds their happily ever after. But in the end, it will be so worth the journey.”—Marsha@Keeper Bookshelf

Here's the blurb for MEANT TO BE:

Can a near-tragedy help two best friends realize they’re meant to be so much more?

Best friends since grade school, high-powered Chicago attorney, Sean Flaherty, and small-town mayor Megan Mackenzie have always shared a special bond. When Sean is shot by a client’s angry ex, Megan rushes to his side, terrified she’s about to lose her long-time confidant.

Upon his return to River’s Edge to recuperate, Sean discovers that his feelings for his pal have taken an undeniable turn for the romantic. While Megan struggles with an unfamiliar longing for Sean, she worries that he may be mistaking a safe place to land for love.

Can Sean help her realize that they are truly meant to be so much more than friends?
