Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Dial E for Endearment by Heidi Gray McGill

Book: Dial E for Endearment

Author: Heidi Gray McGill

Genre: Sweet Christian Contemporary Romance

Release date: February 1, 2022

Everly Johnson is every man’s dream of the perfect date, even though none of her audience has met her. As host for the Choose Joy segment of JOY Radio in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, she receives countless gifts of flowers and candy on behalf of her admires, which she promptly donates to her mother’s assisted living facility. What Everly wants are words–heartfelt, meaningful endearments meant for her ears only. She wants a man who will open her eyes to everything she cannot see to make her feel more than just the voice behind the mic.

Cameron Boyd struggles to make eye contact with anyone, let alone say something coherent unless it is the one-way conversation he has each Friday with Everly Johnson. Date night for Cam involves sitting alone on his back porch overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains while he dreams of things to say if he were ever to call in to her show.

A chance meeting changes everything.

Will Cam be able to step out of his comfort zone and into the world he has only been able to envision in his mind? Will Everly trust this stranger with her life as well as her heart?

Tune into JOY Radio to find out!

I enjoy Christian Romance Books and new to me authors. Dial E for Endearment by Heidi Gray McGill is the latest new to me author book that I have read. 

Everly Johnson is an On-Air Host for a local Radio Station in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Her segment called Choose Joy is enjoyed by many, so much so that they send gifts and flowers to her quite often. Everly doesn't keep the gifts, but donates them. She has one desire in life and that is to find a man to love her for her and whisper sweet nothings in her ear. Cameron listens to Everly's Radio show and would LOVE to meet her. He has been tempted to call into her show, but is too shy to do so. Everly and Cameron have a chance meeting and they hit it off immediately. Cameron discovers that Everly has Low Vision and it makes him more comfortable as he has trouble looking people in the Eye due to shyness. Will Everly and Cameron make a long lasting couple? 

WOW, such a sweet Romance Story. I really like how the author Highlights a character that has Vision Problems. I also like that the character is a Radio DJ. My husband and I both have Radio Broadcasting Degrees, so that ascept of the story was so awesome! Cameron is a wonderful young man who by chance meets someone who he appreciates for who she is. The book is a short novella, but it packs so much story into the book! I HGHLY recommend this book for anyone looking for a Sweet Christian Romance book! GREAT BOOK! 


Heidi is an optimist who chooses to find the silver lining in life’s clouds of doubt. This plays out in her writing. Her ability to seamlessly weave scripture into the lives of her characters will uplift and encourage you, while her masterful storytelling will keep you turning page after page and wishing for more.


Heidi lives with her husband of thirty years near Charlotte, NC. When she isn’t writing, you will find her outside playing with her two grandsons, walking, scrapbooking, reading, cooking, traveling, or finding an excuse to have an outing with a girlfriend.


More from Heidi

Everly, the main character in Dial E for Endearment and I have something in common, but it may not be what you’d expect. As Blowing Rock, NC’s JOY Radio talk show host, Everly has discovered fulfillment, but she hasn’t found love, at least not for her—not even from her mother. In Dial E for Endearment, Everly wants words–heartfelt, meaningful endearments meant for her ears only. She wants a man who will open her eyes to everything she cannot see to make her feel more than just the voice behind the mic.

You may know me as an author, but did you know I am also the retired Director and Founder of an ESL program, regularly walk 12 plus miles a week, care for my grandsons, scrapbook, read voraciously, cook, and am legally blind?  That last phrase was difficult for me to say out loud not that long ago.

Vision loss does not discriminate.

My diagnosis in 2001 of Retinitis Pigmentosa was devastating. There is no cure. There is no surgery. But that does not mean there is no hope.

I still have value.

Those who do not know me well often don’t realize I have low vision. As humans, we are amazingly adaptable, and I do a pretty good job covering up my disability. My friends have learned to watch out for me and alert me to potential pitfalls, some better than others, which is always good for a laugh. I use a cane when I’m navigating alone. I’ve traveled to China—that cane my only companion.

Being blind is certainly not something I would have chosen,

but it does not define me.


Join me on this fun adventure and see for yourself that God does not discriminate. You’ll laugh your way through mishaps–most of which may have happened to me at some point…although I’ll most likely deny if asked. But most of all, you’ll learn that we ALL have value, and that includes YOU.

February is Low Vision Awareness Month.
