I am very excited to be a part of Cora Carmack's release day launch for KEEPING HER! After I finished reading my first book new adult book, I started looking around for other authors and books to read to see if it was a genre that I would want to read regularly. Cora's first book, LOSING IT, kept popping up and I was browsing in B&N back in March and saw it on the shelf and decided to pick it up. Once I started reading, I was hooked. I was super excited when Cora announced that she was writing KEEPING HER as a follow-up to LOSING IT because I loved Garrick and Bliss and I enjoy when authors gives us glimpses of life after the happy ever after.
Garrick Taylor and Bliss Edwards managed to find their happily-ever-after despite a rather . . . ahem . . . complicated start. By comparison, meeting the parents should be an absolute breeze, right?
But from the moment the pair lands in London, new snags just keep cropping up: a disapproving mother-in-law-to-be, more than one (mostly) minor mishap, and the realization that perhaps they aren't quite as ready for their future as they thought.
As it turns out, the only thing harder than finding love is keeping it.
Sounds great, right? And, because she is super awesome, Cora is donating 20% of all her royalties from this book to the charity Planting Peace for the life of the book. Planting Peace is a progressive nonprofit organization founded for the purpose of spreading peace in a hurting world. Although the organization operates on a global level, they emphasize the power of one; the ability that each person possesses to make a difference in the world.
