A new week means another 2019 project “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway feature. 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.

Sierra Donovan‘s NO CHRISTMAS LIKE THE PRESENT is in this week's spotlight. I was fortunate to meet Sierra in San Diego a few years ago at a writer's conference. We'd known each other online but it's always fun to meet face-to-face. Here's what a reviewer had to say about this book:

“Donovan packs this contemporary romance full of all kinds of Christmas magic: friendship, goodwill to colleagues, family, and forgiveness…. All the elements of a Christmas romance are present, with a wary heroine slowly coming to trust the heaven-sent hero who's almost too perfect to be true.” – Publishers Weekly

Here's the blurb for NO CHRISTMAS LIKE THE PRESENT:

Lindsay Miller is knee-deep in Christmas cards and homemade fudge, but she's never felt more like a Grinch. Why can't Christmas be full of magic, like in her favorite movie, A Christmas Carol. . .?

. . .Enter Fred, a sexy and eccentric stranger who arrives at Lindsay's door out of the blue. Dressed like he just stepped out of a Dickens novel, complete with British accent, Fred claims he's a Messenger, sent from “Headquarters” to help her discover the joy of Christmas. But is Fred an angel from above–or just stone cold crazy?

Fred's used to dealing with skeptics. Telling a stranger you've been ordered to inspire holiday cheer is a tough sell. But there's a further complication. Fred's mission is to help Lindsay right the wrongs from her past that have been holding her back. But somehow along the way, they've become wildly attracted to each other–and falling in love is not part of the plan. Fred only has ‘til the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve to guide Lindsay to the magical future she deserves–even if it's a future without him. . .

If you enjoy holiday romances, Sierra has written some lovely ones. This one sounds awesome, too. I love A Christmas Carol. The blurb makes me very curious about who Fred might be and brings up lots of questions in my mind. What do you think?
