Back with a new feature, Spotlight from now on will feature newly released or soon to be released books that I think deserve some shout out and I’m super happy to take the time to give them more promotion. Of course this will be followed by a review, once they’re released.
Today’s just released book had me from the moment I read ex-MLB pitcher/event planner and a holiday setting! This is the perfect read for those getting cold days where I know I have to replace my fall coat with the winter and take out those winter hats too.
Holiday Home Run
by Priscilla Oliveras
Genre: Adult Romance, Holiday Romance
Release Date: Oct. 27, 2020
Publisher: Kensington, Zebra Books
Event planner Julia Fernández is in Chicago for an internship that she hopes to turn into a full-time job. She’s ready to live on her own, out from under her familia’s expectations that she take over their catering business in Puerto Rico and away from their year-round baseball fever thanks to her three ball-playing brothers. Ex-MLB pitcher Ben Thomas knows what it’s like to have different dreams than your family intends for you, but since his injury-caused early retirement, he’s been struggling to find the sense of family baseball once brought him. When he volunteers as the emcee for Julia’s big holiday fundraiser for a local youth center, he finally begins to find a sense of purpose working with the kids and alongside Julia.
She’s focused on organizing the best holiday event the youth center has ever seen, not on romance. But Ben…he’s got a game plan for them that includes both.
Holiday Home Run was previously released as part of the holiday anthology A SEASON TO CELEBRATE.
