I'm so thrilled to be a part of the Healing Summer Blog Tour. Healing Summer is Elizabeth Seckman's second novel. I discovered Elizabeth's blog last year and have been totally enthralled ever since. She is warm, witty, hilarious and so down to earth! I'm excited to have met her online and doubly excited to help her promote her new book!
Maybe Love, Not Time, Heals All Wounds
Ditched at the altar…biopsied for cancer…Mollie Hinkle is having a bona fide bitch of a summer. When life sucks so hard it takes your breath away, what's a girl to do? Pack a bag, grab a few friends, and leave the past and the worry in the rear view mirror. What wounds can’t be healed by a drive across the Heartland, where quarter flips at cross roads determine the route and the future? All roads lead to Craig, the second son and bad boy of the haughty Coulter line. Has fate brought her to the miniscule Montana town to find happily ever after or will it just break her heart?
Now, since I have Elizabeth here, I asked her which one of her characters she feels most attached to and why. As writers, we all have that one character who is closest to our hearts and most compelling to us (ahem . . . Claire for me). So here is what Elizabeth had to say on this topic:
So, you want to know which one of my characters I feel most strongly about and why?
In “Healing Summer”, hands down, I love Jack.
Jack, or Polly to those who don’t call her friend, is the spunky stalwart for the quiet MC, Mollie Hinkle. It was Jack who leaped the pew in a swirl of purple taffeta to take a swing at the squirrelly Justin. Okay, so a fistfight in front of a man of the cloth isn’t exactly lady like, but Justin needed a good knock in the head! Who waits until they are at the altar, in the midst of vows and guest, to dump your bride-to-be?
He had it coming and Jack is the kind of pal who delivers retribution. And helps bury the body..then provides the alibi…or steals the get-away car if that plan fails.
Yes, she has issues. She doesn’t trust just anyone. She has a history of people letting her down…her drunken dad for starters and the multitude of men she dated and dumped. But she’s like a mutt saved from the pound. Trust in her, put up with her sometimes scruffy exterior, and you have a friend for life. Hurt someone she loves and watch your back.
