Loving Grace - Spotlight Book Tour

Title:  Loving  Grace  
Author:  April  Smith  
Publisher:  Ambassador  International  
Release  Date:  March  20,  2018  
Genre:  Christian  Fiction,  Young  Adult  Romance 

Grace  Summer  lands  herself  in  a  melon  load  of  trouble  when  she  becomes  torn  between  the  boy  of  her  dreams  and  the  boy  almost  next  door.  

As the newly crowned Watermelon Queen, she is thrust into the spotlight, meets the dreamy Warren Hartley, and continues trying to get over an accident that rocked her world. Mix in working with Beau Baron who Grace happens to fight with just about as much as breathing and the metaphorical sparks fly.

Like most things in life, Grace must learn to take the good with the bad. While the good is the handsome and fun Warren Hartley, the bad is Beau Baron—or at least being around his annoying and rude self way more than she would like. For Beau, Grace is nothing more than aggravating and an irritating reminder from the night of the accident.

Tensions soar as Grace and Beau fight to love themselves and maybe, just maybe, each other.

I break away from the dance floor and head to the bathroom.  Thankfully, no one is in there.  I reach the back stall and sit, not worrying at all about my evening gown.  I hear the crush of the outer layers, but what do a few tattered pieces of fabric matter when he’s just pushed my heart through a paper shredder?      

Taking deep breaths, I pray from Psalms:  Lord, the Bible says You heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds.  I need that right now.  I need You.  I hurt, Lord.  

Tears still stream down my face, but the suffocating pain recedes to a tolerable level.  I fix my makeup in the mirror.  Luckily, not too much damage was done.  It will be dark in the ballroom, so no one will see my red-rimmed eyes.
