Well Said: Rescuing Olivia

"I knew my life was different from most, that I had every available privilege and then some. And yet..." She trailed off. He raised his eyebrows slightly, encouraging her to say it. Letting her know it was safe to say it. "When I really needed him, he was never there."


Teaser blurb: "A car runs their motorcycle off the road and causes an accident that puts Olivia in a coma. Olivia’s estranged father blames Anders and denies his pleas to see her. When she mysteriously disappears from the hospital and Anders tries to learn what happened, her father stops at nothing to prevent him from discovering the truth. But Anders refuses to accept that she’s gone for good. Determined to find answers, he sets out on a dangerous path that exposes Olivia’s traumatic past and places him squarely in the way of her father’s plans. When he discovers her very life is threatened, his search for answers becomes a race against time, and he is forced to finally confront his own past if he is to have any chance of rescuing Olivia from hers. Pitched at the intersection of suspense and family drama, Rescuing Olivia is another gripping read from Julie Compton, a talented new author who never fails to mine the most compelling emotional terrain."

  2. Although a BIG possibility for a smitch of the tear-jerky, Rescuing Olivia has my interest totally peaked. And it almost sounds like it could successfully be made into a movie for the Lifetime Movie Channel as well! (<-- Which none of us probably ever would want to admit it, but, sometimes, it IS good in small doses-- like chicken noodle soup when you've got the sniffles! LOL!)

    The cover for Swoon's really cute right? ^^ I'm hoping that the book will be just as cute, if not more!

  20. Wow, Ju, that sounds like an intense read!

    You know when authors do signings in the US, it really sucks to live in the UK!
