ABOUT THE BOOKloving grace_preview

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.


It’s worse than I thought. Mr. Baron has signed me up for the watermelon queen pageant. He’s the president of the Midwest Watermelon Association, and he has chosen to sponsor me. In other words, I’m competing in a pageant to win the title of Midwest Watermelon Queen. I crumple the paper and close my eyes. Breathe, I remind myself.

“Well, say something,” Beau says.

“It’s not a good idea,” I whisper and then exhale.

“Saying something or the pageant?”
“Both.” I stop. “Wait a minute. You knew?”

Beau frowns a little bit, but that’s all the answer I get.
