Here's the next post in 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 PJ Fiala‘s DEFENDING KEIRNAN. This is the Prequel to her Ghost series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about the book:

“PJ Fiala is one of my favorite authors. Defending Keirnan is a prime example of why I love her work so much and why she is a must buy for me. It has all the feels. Its romance, its suspense and action and a bit of mystery thrown in. I didn't want to stop reading. I Loved Dane. He might just become my new book boyfriend.” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for DEFENDING KEIRNAN:

All Keirnan Vickers ever wanted was to be a teacher. Having realized that dream, she’s focusing on helping the local library with desperately needed repairs so she has a place to host her growing reading program. Just when her life is beginning to look like a storybook, an enemy of her father's threatens her very existence.

Single father Dane Copeland has known his share of heartaches. He put love on the back burner to finish his career as a special operative with the Army and raise his daughter. Fate intervenes when he meets Keirnan, who brings a new zest for life and the promise of a new start. But it all comes crashing down when she is kidnapped and local law enforcement is unable, or unwilling, to mount a rescue.

 

Partnering with Auggie Vickers, GHOST is born, and all of their lives are irreparably changed as the details behind Keirnan's abduction are revealed and time becomes their enemy.

Oh, another romantic suspense story. Cool. And this one features a single dad, too. All these fathers raising kids are adding to my TBR! This is prequel to PJ's series so a great way to dive into something new. What do you think?
