Recommendation

Raspberries and Vinegar by Valerie Comer

Valerie Comer is a friend and a long-term critique partner. She has a talent for characters with conviction who make you care enough to want to see them succeed. Raspberries and Vinegar is her first full-length publication, and I can’t wait to see how things turned out in the final draft, but based on my early reads, this is a contemporary inspirational romance that will inspire on more than just a religious level. Check it out here: Raspberries and Vinegar
