Okay, so it probably doesn’t come as a surprise to many people that I don’t read a lot of Contemporary Romance. It’s just not really my thing. I like my speculative fiction way too much to be dragged away from it by anything short of torture, but, when my friend Mindy Hayes came forward with this little gem, I decided to give it a go. Mindy was a real sport and threw this book at the mercy of my admittedly harsh red pen and said FIX ALL THE THINGS. While I’m no editor, and I don’t generally offer to critique things for fear of hurting feelings (really, I’m that harsh.), I can honestly tell you without hesitation that what the lovely Ms. Hayes has come up with is a truly sweet, touching story. It’s my honor to be able to show off this lovely cover today, and I will happily blast it out on social media when release day comes later this month.
So let me tell you about this book.
Me After You
A New Adult Contemporary Romance Novel
Release date: November 22nd, 2013
And the blurb:
“Widowed at twenty-five, Sawyer Hartwell has no choice but to return to her hometown. Broke and alone, her intention was to heal and find herself again, but how can she heal in a place filled with so much sorrow and memories she yearns to forget?
Dean Preston has regretted leaving Willowhaven since the day he rode off on his motorcycle six years ago, destroying the only love he had ever known. Returning too late, he’s found small comfort in a new life with Lily, but with Sawyer back, he’s not sure of anything anymore.
The time has come for Sawyer and Dean to face the past, to learn from their mistakes. The road to healing is paved with old wounds, each one threatening to tear them down completely. Carrying their own scars close to their hearts, they must confront what’s gone before or lose their second chance.
The measure of who we are is what we survive. Who we become is up to us.”
And if that doesn’t sell you, feast your eyes on this beautiful cover:
(Good luck, Princess!) ;)
