It's time for 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.

PJ Fiala‘s upcoming release is called DEFENDING ROXANNE and is this week's spotlight feature. This book number two in her GHOST series. There aren't any reviews out yet since it's on preorder, but here's one from DEFENDING SOPHIE Book 1 in the series:

“This is my first taste of this author – she's now officially on my Auto-Buy list and keeper shelf. This story was fast paced, jumping right into it and never letting up.”—Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for DEFENDING ROXANNE:

Secrets and lies have become deadly.

While investigating the murder of her parents, Roxanne Bowman encounters more than she ever thought she would. The secrets that both of her parents kept knock her off kilter. Finding an intruder in their home afterwards changes her life forever.

GHOST operative, Hawk Delany is back in the swing of things after being shot while working a case. Sent to Washington D.C. to investigate the murder of a foreign dignitary, and an American couple with ties to deadly secrets, places him in a precarious position. The fight to help Roxanne solve the murders and to keep his heart from theft by the lovely Roxanne.

Sounds like this one is full of secrets and suspense! Hmmm. I'm wondering if the intruder in Roxanne's parents' house is Hawk. No matter, I only hope she gets the answers she needs and a HEA. What do you think?
