Aloha to Tracy Solheim and BACK TO BEFORE

22401446

Chances Inlet, North Carolina, has an infamous power for second chances. But its charms are lost on the town’s favorite son—until she comes along…

When his father’s sudden death puts his family’s construction business in serious debt, architect Gavin McAlister is forced to put his dream career in New York on hold. Making matters worse, his fiancée calls it quits. Desperate to return to his big-city life, he discovers an opportunity to save his family, one that has him reluctantly starring in a home restoration TV show.

Former soap star Ginger Walsh hopes this job as a TV makeup artist will lead to better things. So far it’s only brought her to a hamlet full of people who don’t like her—except Gavin. After a wild night out leads to Ginger waking up in Gavin’s loft—and the rest of town talking—the two of them soon wonder if getting back to before is what they want. Because being in each other’s arms certainly feels like what they need…

Tracy's creative writing career started in the fourth grade when she published her first book. It was a bestseller–mainly because her dad bought all ten copies. From there, she moved on to work for NBC Sports and then to writing reports and testimony for Congress.

Today, Tracy is the author of best selling contemporary romance novels featuring hot football players and the women who love them.

She lives in Georgia, with her husband, two nearly adult children, and a horse named after her first novel: Game On.

I am currently reading and loving BACK TO BEFORE - review to come! Meanwhile, I am giving away a book choice from my convention stash, including titles from Tracy's OUT OF BOUNDS series.  To enter the giveaway,

1.  Leave a comment about "home restoration" reality TV - do you watch any?  I am a fan of HGTV's House Hunters and Hawaii Life.  They are not home restoration but home purchase.

2.  Comments are open through Saturday, January 11, 10 pm in Baltimore.

3.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, January 12.

Mahalo,

Kim in Baltimore
Aloha Spirit in Charm City

  4. Huge fan of 'Fixer Upper' with Chip & Joanna. Much more relaxed style of décor not so modern & sleek of Property Bros. Love a lot of those shows that aren't of the half million dollar to million properties. Things like 'Beach Front Bargains' etc.

  26. Occasionally I'll pay attention when my hubby is channel surfing and hits the restoration shows. I couldn't tell you the names of any of them honestly. There's one with a lady who does her best to Not follow common sense rules and will do all sorts of work for the camera wearing sandals and shorts. :-)
