Welcome to the Loving Grace blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

~ About the Book ~

loving graceTitle: 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.

~ Excerpt ~

Mr. Baron is helping Mrs. Baron with her wrap, and the boys are lost in a conversation of their own.

“Grace, you were divine tonight,” Mrs. Baron says.

“Thanks. I have to say, Mrs. Baron, you were great during the ‘Watermelon Crawl.’”

I do a sassy, little cha-cha step. Mrs. Baron looks delighted and laughs a little. “Let’s go to our rooms. We’re all tired. And tomorrow, we have to be at the press conference pretty early.”

With how busy we were, I had almost forgotten about being invited to join Noelle tomorrow for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new watermelon nursery. It houses thousands of tiny seedlings. Eventually, they’ll be shipped all over the country to agricultural centers. We’ll get a tour of the greenhouses and the packing plant before Noelle cuts the ribbon.
