Volunteering Ideas- An 8 Part Summer Series (Part Five)

Did you know that one of the main benefits of volunteering is to make YOU happier?
This summer, for the next few weeks, I’ll be highlighting some ways you can volunteer in your community.

Week Five:

Volunteer at your local hospital.
Besides giving back vital support, you’ll have an opportunity to offer comfort and accessibility to families, patients, and guests.

Do you have a hospital near you? Have you ever volunteered?

If you watch home improvement and fixer-uppers on television, then you’ll love my sweet romance, 1-800-CUPID.

A house flipper looking for quick profit. A survivor with a dream. Can two broken hearts find a place to call home?

Prepare for romance and fun with the first book in a brand new home-flipping series brought to you by USA Today bestselling author Josie Riviera

When a Miami investor calls in search of prime property flip prospects, North Carolina real estate broker Candee Contando expects to meet a balding, steely-eyed land shark. Turns out the first customer she’s had in months is a hot prospect in more ways than one.

Except his gaze has fallen on her dream house, a dilapidated Victorian she just bid her last penny on in hopes of creating a safe place for disadvantaged children—like the girl she used to be.

Teddy Winchester is adept at negotiating life’s curves, but Candee’s curves stop him in his tracks. She’s a warm spark in the emptiness he’s felt since his brother died, leaving him with a beloved nephew to raise.

Attraction glows in Candee’s eyes as well, but there’s also wistfulness as she points out all the reasons an old, tumbledown Victorian doesn’t fit into his tried-and-true house-flipping plan. Yet the more he looks at the house—and at her—he begins to think some things are worth the risk.

Now if only he can convince her that building a new life often starts with tearing down some walls…

When the heart flips, there’s no telling where the walls will fall.

1-800-CUPID is available in ebook, paperback, and audiobook. Snag your copy today!

  1. When I was a teen, I volunteered at our local hospital. We were called Candy Stripers because the uniforms were pink-striped. This is a very good series, Jose, reminding us of the opportunities out there.
