Welcome to the fifth week of the Online Adult Summer Reading Program! It's crazy that we are already in July! I hope you have been having a blast reading so far!
Congratulations to Mary P. on winning a copy of Sweetbriar Cottage from Denise Hunter. You should be receiving your book soon!
This week I'm excited to share two authors and two prizes I'm giving away! First is a MP3 or paperback copy of Beyond Justice by Cara Putman.
Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain when justice is not served. It's why she became an attorney and why she's so driven in her career. When she's assigned a wrongful death case against the government, she isn't sure if it's the lucky break she needs to secure a partnership—or an attempt to make sure she never gets there.
Further complicating matters is Andrew, her roommate’s distractingly attractive cousin. But Andrew’s father is a Congressman, and Hayden's currently taking on the government. Could the timing be any worse?
The longer she keeps the case active, the higher the stakes become. Unknown enemies seem determined to kill the case—or her. Logic and self-preservation would indicate she should close the case. But how can she, when justice is still just beyond her reach?
This was actually the first book I've read by Cara and I'm excited for the next one, Imperfect Justice to release this winter. Cara is the award-winning author of more than 20 books. She graduated college at 20 and completed her law degree at 27. Cara is active at her church and a full-time lecturer on business and employment law to undergraduate and graduate students at Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management. She also practices law and is a second-generation homeschooling mom. Cara serves on the executive board of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), an organization she has served in various roles since 2007. She lives with her husband and four children in Indiana.

Next up is an ebook copy of Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh.
After tirelessly climbing the ranks of her Chicago-based interior design firm, Lane Kelley is about to land her dream promotion when devastating news about her brother draws her back home―a quaint tourist town full of memories she’d just as soon forget. With her cell phone and laptop always within reach, Lane aims to check on her brother while staying focused on work―something her eclectic family doesn’t understand.
Ryan Brooks never expected to settle down in Harbor Pointe, Michigan, but after his final tour of duty, it was the only place that felt like home. Now knee-deep in a renovation project that could boost tourism for the struggling town, he is thrilled to see Lane, the girl he secretly once loved, even if the circumstances of her homecoming aren’t ideal.
Their reunion gets off to a rocky start, however, when Ryan can’t find a trace of the girl he once knew in the woman she is today. As he slowly chips away at the walls Lane has built, secrets from his past collide with a terrible truth even he is reluctant to believe. Facing a crossroads that could define his future with Lane and jeopardize his relationship with the surrogate family he’s found in the Kelleys, Ryan hopes Lane can see that maybe what really matters has been right in front of her all along―if only she’d just look up.
This book has been on my to be read list since I heard about it and I can't wait to start reading it! It actually releases on July 4th! Courtney is a novelist, artist, theater director, and playwright. Change of Heart was her fifth novel and is set in the same town as Paper Hearts. Her debut novel, A Sweethaven Summer, hit the New York Times and USA Today e-book bestseller lists and was a Carol Award finalist in the debut author category. She has written two additional books in the Sweethaven series, as well as two craft books and several full-length musicals. Courtney lives in Illinois where she and her husband own a performing and visual arts studio. They have three children. Want to connect with Courtney?
