October has turned wet in the PNW. Hope the weather is nicer where you are. Here's another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway from the upcoming 2020 project. 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 Tule Publishing‘s THE CHRISTMAS MAKEOVER by Susan Lute. Here's what a reviewer had to say about the book:

“What a wonderful, feel-good story. This book was a breath of fresh air, an original story and I absolutely loved it!”—Goodreads Reviewer

Here's the blurb for THE CHRISTMAS MAKEOVER:

He’s ready for the lights…

Baker Grant Reed loves discovering new Christmas recipes, making people smile, and Angel Point—not necessarily in that order. But when his editor turns down his proposal for a Christmas cookbook, he must show her how serious he is about becoming the premier pastry chef in the country. He turns to his best friend, Faith—if anyone can give him a complete makeover that will turn heads, she can.

She knows how to make things sparkle…

In her past, Faith Hathaway was a costume designer for some of Broadway’s most prestigious plays. Now, after moving to Angel Point to help her grandfather, she owns and operates a vintage boutique and helps out at the local theater. When Grant asks for a makeover, she’s torn—she loves him the way he is, mismatched socks and all.

In exchange, he promises to show Faith, who has never enjoyed the holiday season, the magic of an Angel Point Christmas. But as the two grow closer, Grant can’t help but wonder…has he got his Christmas wish all wrong?

It's that time of year for the Christmas romances to start releasing, and Susan's sounds like a cute one. I could easily picture it as a movie. I love the idea of a makeover. What do you think?
