A chance to win FROM THE START galleys!

Writing my heroine scriptwriter wasn’t such a stretch for me. Sure, it took a little research to discover where and how Hallmark-esque movies are made. But I felt up for the task.

You know how sometimes you get that perfect email from that perfect person saying the perfect words at the perfect time?
