Welcome to my blog for this stop of the 2020 Christmas Round-Robin.
Here's how it works: At each author’s blog post, you will find a question that can be answered by checking out the free Amazon preview of their book. Provide the answer here. Note: You must answer the questions for every author in the round-robin to be considered to win the $350 first place, $250 second place or $150 third place Amazon gift cards. [Note: these prizes are USD values. If you are not a U.S. resident, you will get a gift card from the Amazon store for your country; however, it will be valued at these USD amounts.) At the end of my post is a link to the next blog, who will provide a link to the next blog, etc., to the very end.
Nothing is more embarrassing than Grace Dixon’s dog peeing on the new mailman. Except maybe when she thinks she’s hit the handsome man with her SUV.
When he’s assigned to cover an injured co-worker’s route, Evan McDonald assumes it will be like any other mail route he’s done. But then he meets Grace Dixon, and he’s thrust into total Christmas chaos.
As Grace spreads the love of God and Christmas cheer to her community, she encourages Evan to join her. The two grow close as Evan learns about giving of not just possessions but of time and grace, setting him back on the path to God.
Grace is a force to be reckoned with, though, and when she shows compassion in a situation that Evan disagrees with, he realizes he might not be the right man for her. Will Grace’s lifestyle of giving overwhelm him, or can he muster some of that grace and compassion she so easily spreads?
I have previously published three romantic suspense novels. Giving Grace is my first contemporary romance and I loved writing it. I hope you love reading it! It was a challenge for me to switch from romantic suspense to romance. Usually, if I get stuck in the story I can shoot someone or blow something up. Not the case with this novella. I also had a difficult time with the "black" moment. IN romantic suspense, I use a kidnapping or critical injury to separate the characters and make them realize how much they love each other and question whether they'll ever get to see each other again.
I admit I made myself laugh out loud a couple times while writing this novella. Especially with the antics of Grace's dog. I named the dog after my dad. Not only is the dog named after him, but he acts a bit like him, too. A tad ornery.
The question you need to answer is "What is the name of Grace Dixon's dog?" You'll find the answer here. Look inside and record your answer here, and visit the next blog.
Thank you so much for visiting! The next author on the tour is Chautona Havig, who is telling us all about her Christmas book Christmas on Breakers Point. You can find it here. Remember that you must answer every question from all 36 authors in this collection and that the round-robin will end on December 12th at 11:59 PM EST!
