Spotlight and Giveaway: Good Luck With That

Today we're celebrating the publication of Good Luck With That by Kristan Higgins. There has been a lot of great buzz about this novel, so we're excited to feature it today and read it soon. Thanks to Berkley, we have one copy to give away!

Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults.

For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it's coming to terms with the survivor's guilt she's carried around since her twin sister's death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it's about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother's and brother's ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.

But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson's dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, she wanted her friends to love themselves.

A novel of compassion and insight, Good Luck With That tells the story of two women who learn to embrace themselves just the way they are. (Synopsis courtesy of Amazon.)

“Wholly original and heartfelt, and written with grace and sensitivity, Good Luck With That is an irresistible tale of love, friendship, and self-acceptance—and the way body image can sabotage all three.” 
New York Times bestselling author Lori Nelson Spielman

“Masterfully told, Good Luck With That is a story with which every woman will identify. We all deal with body image, self-esteem, and acceptance of love at one time or another. Bravo, Kristan Higgins, bravo!” 
—#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber
