Spotlight and Giveaway: If Not For You

Last year, Melissa A read and fell in love with A Girl's Guide to Moving On, which was the first book she has ever read by Debbie Macomber. So she was thrilled to find out that one of the characters is making an appearance in Debbie's latest novel, If Not For You. Not only does this story also sound really interesting, but the cover is gorgeous and just evokes the feeling of Spring. Thanks to Penguin Random House, we have TWO copies to give away!


If not for her loving but controlling parents, Beth Prudhomme might never have taken charge of her life and moved from her native Chicago to Portland, Oregon, where she’s reconnected with her spirited Aunt Sunshine and found a job as a high school music teacher. If not for her friend Nichole, Beth would never have met Sam Carney, although first impressions have left Beth with serious doubts. Sam is everything Beth is not—and her parents’ worst nightmare: a tattooed auto mechanic who’s rough around the edges. Reserved and smart as a whip, Beth isn’t exactly Sam’s usual beer-drinking, pool-playing type of woman, either.

But if not for an awkward setup one evening, Beth might never have left early and been involved in a car crash. And if not for Sam—who witnessed the terrifying ordeal, rushed to her aid, and stayed with her until help arrived—Beth might have been all alone, or worse. Yet as events play out, Sam feels compelled to check on Beth almost daily at the hospital—even bringing his guitar to play songs to lift her spirits. Soon their unlikely friendship evolves into an intense attraction that surprises them both.

Before long, Beth’s strong-willed mother, Ellie, blows into town spouting harsh opinions, especially about Sam, and reopening old wounds with Sunshine. When shocking secrets from Sam’s past are revealed, Beth struggles to reconcile her feelings. But when Beth goes a step too far, she risks losing the man and the life she’s come to love.

If Not for visiting a friend at the dorm on campus where I graduated from, I wouldn't have bumped into my husband and go on our first date.

If not for my last marriage, I never would have left Los Angeles and probably would never have had my son. The marriage didn't work but, I never moved back to L.A. San Diego was a much better atmosphere for me. I learned to slow down, relax and enjoy life again.
