Usually book releases in blogs start by telling you about the book, but I'm going to do this a little differently. I'm going to tell you about Amy Harmon first and then tell you about her wonderful new book release. There is a giveaway at the very end - don't miss it!
I met Amy in a Facebook group last year, and we quickly hit it off. Maybe it was because we live in the same state. Maybe we sensed in each other a kindred spirit. Whatever it was, I was intrigued by her Purgatory series (Slow Dance in Purgatory/Prom Night in Purgatory) and snatched them up. I was immediately in love with Amy's writing: sultry and romantic, emotionally-jarring and poetic, and completely swoon-worthy.
One day while I was on FB writing to Amy, my husband looked over my shoulder, pointed to her picture, and asked who she was.
I said, "My friend Amy Harmon. She's an author."
He looked more closely and shook his head. "I went to high school with her. We all had crushes on her. Amy was amazing."
I won't go into how amazing Amy was in high school *cough* studentbodypresident *cough* promqueen *cough*, but suffice it to say that Amy is STILL amazing.
Now for her beautiful new book!
A DIFFERENT BLUE
Blue Echohawk doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know her real name or when she was born. Abandoned at two and raised by a drifter, she didn't attend school until she was ten years old. At nineteen, when most kids her age are attending college or moving on in life, she is just a senior in high school. With no mother, no father, no faith, and no future, Blue Echohawk is a difficult student, to say the least. Tough, hard and overtly sexy, she is the complete opposite of the young British teacher who decides he is up for the challenge, and takes the troublemaker under his wing.
This is the story of a nobody who becomes somebody. It is the story of an unlikely friendship, where hope fosters healing and redemption becomes love. But falling in love can be hard when you don't know who you are. Falling in love with someone who knows exactly who they are and exactly why they can't love you back might be impossible.
