The is the last”authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway for the year from our 2018 project! I'll be back in 2019 with more. In these features, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2018 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.

In this week's spotlight is Teri Wilson‘s new release THE ACCIDENTAL BEAUTY QUEEN. The book is part of the Royals series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Teri's book:

“[A] touching story about women supporting women…Wilson’s engaging novel weaves a forbidden romance around Charlotte and Ginny’s authentic camaraderie, making for an affecting tale of sisterly love.” —Publishers Weekly

Here's the blurb for THE ACCIDENTAL BEAUTY QUEEN:

Charlotte Gorman loves her job as an elementary school librarian, and is content to experience life through the pages of her books. Which couldn’t be more opposite from her identical twin sister. Ginny, an Instagram-famous beauty pageant contestant, has been chasing a crown since she was old enough to enunciate the words world peace, and she’s not giving up until she gets the title of Miss American Treasure. And Ginny’s refusing to do it alone this time.

She drags Charlotte to the pageant as a good luck charm, but the winning plan quickly goes awry when Ginny has a terrible, face-altering allergic reaction the night before the pageant, and Charlotte suddenly finds herself in a switcheroo the twins haven’t successfully pulled off in decades.

Woefully unprepared for the glittery world of hair extensions, false eyelashes, and push-up bras, Charlotte is mortified at every unstable step in her sky-high stilettos. But as she discovers there’s more to her fellow contestants than just wanting a sparkly crown, Charlotte realizes she has a whole new motivation for winning.

I love Teri's stories. This one sounds so fun! I can't wait to read what happens to poor Charlotte. I worked in a library for four years in college, and I would be woefully unprepared for any of those things too. What do you think?
