New book trailer for Family by Design

You know the biggest problem with working graveyard shift and then getting a good night's sleep? My whole day is gone when I get up. So, yeah, I'm a little late posting the winners for last week's prizes, but I promise I'm only counting the entries that came in by midnight Sunday. First: I want to give a big shout out and thanks to Stephanie Fowers, who found actors (twice) and created this trailer. It turned out great and the kids in it are adorable!



What did I tell you? Okay, now for last week's winners:

The copy of Honeymoon Heist goes to:

Shelly B


And the personally autographed copy of Agent in Old Lace (which I will have signed for you at Tristi Pinkston's book launch for Targets and Ties at Pioneer Book this Thursday evening--and which I'll also be signing at. Hint, hint.) goes to: 


Bonnie H.


Thanks for entering ladies! And remember that there are still two prizes up for grabs, including the $20 gift certificate.

There have been several more terrific reviews of Family by Design since I last posted.


"I really enjoyed this book. I loved Rena's character and Tucker was very attractive--the kind of guy I'd like my daughters to date. The kids were adorable and realistic, including the tantrums.

"In Family by Design, Heather Justesen creates real-life characters a reader can care about, fret about, and cry about. I find myself thinking about characters, Rena and Tucker, and Derek and McKenzie, throughout my day, and choking up throughout the book, as I fall in love which each one. "--Kathleen Brebes, read more here.

"It was filled with funny kid stories, real feelings, and lovable characters." --Maria Hoaglund. Read the rest of her thoughts here.


"Heather does a superb job at portraying the feelings of her characters.  More than once Rena's emotions felt all too personal." --Kim Job, read the rest of the review here.


" Family By Design was such a fun, delightful read that had me laughing, blushing, and occasionally reaching for some tissues." --Danyelle Ferguson, you can find the rest here.


 "She has a unique turn of phrase and the ability to describe things in a way that makes her books unlike anyone else's. It's distinctive and a pleasure to read."--Tristi Pinkston, Read the rest here.
