Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Spring Splash by Denise Weimer, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Spring Splash
Author: Denise Weimer
Publisher: Candlelight Romance
Release Date: March 2, 2020
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
When an injury sidelines college swimmer Anna Callaway, her dreams are crushed. She pours herself into her sports marketing practicum, helping a local special needs organization promote their athletic event. What she doesn’t expect is a swim team ripe for the Special Olympics—and their handsome but stubborn coach.
Craig Holt has dealt with eager and ignorant volunteers before. No matter how determined or persuasive uptight Anna might be about coaching his team to the Special Olympics, he has no intention of allowing her to raise the hopes of his swimmers, his sister, or his guarded heart.
Then Anna herself gets a second chance at becoming a champion. Will she pursue her lifelong goals or make room for a new dream?

IN MY OPINION
Denise Weimer takes readers into the world of competitive swimming as well as the volunteers, families, and people who live every day with disabilities. Spring Splash is so much more than a sweet romance (though it is that too).
The people Anna meets during her practicum each captured my heart in one way or another. Weimer gives them each their own personality while educating readers on the autism spectrum and the challenges represented in each of these people’s lives. Yet, the message rings clear that each person is fearfully and wonderfully made.
As Anna and Craig work together (not without a few fireworks), they come to admire each other and friendship blossoms into more. Anna uses her determination to fight for the people she’s come to love. Those who possess courage, determination, and an outlook on life many of us greater than many of us have.
