Book Spotlight: Monday Morning Joy

Hey, Diversity Readers!

I hope you’re having a good bookish week! I wanted to share a book spotlight on Monday Morning Joy by Tia McCollors. I read it over the weekend and thought it would make a good spotlight. Have you read it? If not, see below for more information.


About the Book

Rae Stevens’ life might as well be a front page headline after a popular local sportscaster abruptly ends their engagement. Now, due to a staff shortage at the newspaper she works for, Rae is assigned to write a feature on baseball standout Malachi Burke, renowned as a womanizer and party man. She plans to write a quick and uninvolved story and then leave Malachi and everything he represents in the rearview mirror. Malachi Burke has never been so intrigued by a woman as he is by Rae Stevens. From the first day they met, he knew there was something different about her. For three months, he’s worked to put his life in right standing with God and leave his past behind. But it resurfaces when his former girlfriend Alexandria shows up to claim what’s hers. He doesn’t mind that Alexandria doesn’t like the person he’s become, but he wants Rae to know him for more than the person he’s been.
