Bookshelf Friday - The Mistaken Heiress by Shelba Nivens (and my monthy giveaway)

I'm so happy to post today's book! Shelba is an agency mate of mine who has persevered a long time to finally get her book published. She is a such an example to those of us who are still waiting on God's timing as we place our work into His hands. Love her heart!  And her book:) Let me give you a blurb about this sweet story, and we'll chat on the other side.

Who's the man in Kate Sanderson's woods?

Kate misses her grandfather to whom she was very closer. She plans to start a landscaping business on the property that he promised would be hers. But there's a stranger living on the land and he insists the land is his. Kate is ready for a fight in spite of the fact the stranger is very handsome. 

Steve Adams has other ideas for the idyllic setting--a place for troubled kids. In steps a red-haired beauty to try and take his land as well as his heart.

From the moment they first meet, Steve and Kate have a turbulent relationship (I mean, he's messing with her plans!), but with Steve's patience and Kate's continual movement toward God, they begin to fall in love. Not only was their relationship sweet to watch develop, but Kate's understand of who she is in Christ and that He has a plan for her was full of encouragement and tender moments. But it wasn't all serious. There were moments of lighthearted laughter as Kate tends to be a bit of a klutz, and Steve likes to banter with her. The two made a fun couple that the reader roots for all the way up to their well-deserved Happily Ever After:)

The Mistaken Heiress was a wonderful debut and a delightful read. You can purchase it here.

Ok, because yes, I have to keep showing my social media presence, and because I'm so thankful for every "like" or "follow", I wanted to find a way to say THANKS! You have no idea how much of a help your simple click of a button is to authors, especially those of us still working to get published.
