Welcome to the Loving Grace blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
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.

I’ve been put to work in the packing shed with Mrs. Baron. Raul, one of the farmhands, pulls up the wagon trailers, and we move the melons to the conveyor belt that will wash and dry them. The melons roll out onto another conveyor belt, and we sort them based on quality. Ones go to supermarkets and other distribution centers. Twos will go to the farmer’s markets or be sold from the produce stand here. It’s an important job. If someone hasn’t been trained to spot what makes a melon a two, they could let too many pass. It would be just as bad if they graded the melons too hard and didn’t allow them to make it on the semi-truck. That’s why Mrs. Baron and I do the sorting. Then, we hand them off to workers, who will put them in bins after another worker puts the stickers on the melons. It’s a grueling process; but miss one step, and we have to start all over.
