loving grace blitz banner

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


loving grace 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.

One of the really nice things about the office is that it’s an old farmhouse. Mrs. Baron stocks it with just about everything because, like all southern girls, she likes to be prepared.

Warmed from the shower and in sweats, I drink my tea. Bennett sits at the table with me, while Mrs. Baron hums in the background. She’s throwing something together for us to eat while we wait out the storm.

“Well, Watermelon Queen, was your first day all you expected it to be?” Bennett asks.

“Let’s just say it was more than I planned for,” I dryly reply.

Bennett laughs.

“This is going to be a fun year. I’ve always wanted a little sister, and now I have one,” he says.



April Smith grew up spending summers working on her best friend’s family watermelon farm and she was one of those watermelon queens she writes about. She has her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in the Art of Teaching.

    1. Kay,

      You're welcome. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck!

  2. I love YA fiction and always feel like there isn't enough in the Christian market. Looking forward to this one.

    1. I agree. I think you're never too old for YA fiction.There are a lot of good YA books in the Christian market, but there could certainly be more :)

      Good luck!
