Matchmaking Via Nepotism: “Heartbeat Braves” by Pamela Sanderson

Hi friends! On this episode, we recap “Heartbeat Braves” by Pamela Sanderson. Our heroine is a no-nonsense professional who works at a community center serving the indigenous community. Her job is stressful enough without having to hand-hold the board’s nepotism hire. And even worse, he is super cute. This book highlighted the glaring gaps in our bookshelves with regard to indigenous stories, and we had a lot of trouble finding stories that centered indigenous lives and not just indigenous trauma. So please please send us your recommendations, because we would love to read them. Now, spoilers ahead.
