May Goodreads giveaway and other news

Only one week left in the May Goodreads giveaway!

I'm giving away three autographed copies of my debut novel, The Heart Remembers.

Dedicated to all who who served in Vietnam, The Heart Remembers enjoys a 5-star rating on Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble.

Here are some reviews of The Heart Remembers:

“Truly one of the best Christian books I have read in a long time.” (Barnes & Noble)

The Heart Remembers by Michele Huey grabs the reader and won't let go. I can heartily recommend this incredibly well written, researched, and crafted novel about the Vietnam War, about love lost and remembered, about family and faith, and about never giving up hope.” – Cass W.

“From the first page to the last, this book is a riveting and entertaining story that will keep you in suspense and unable to put the book down until the final page is read.” - Deborah B.

 “The Heart Remembers takes readers on a journey of the heart that will be with them long after they put the book down. With characters you can’t help but care about, Michele Huey weaves a story of intrigue, faith, and—most importantly—love. A delightful read.” – Robyn W.

 “This was one of the best books I have ever read! I couldn't put it down! The story held surprises at every turn, and I felt a personal connection to the characters. I would definitely recommend this as a must read!” – Brenda T.
