Tour & Giveaway for The Guy Next Door by Kate Palmer

On the surface, Eva Black’s life seems practically perfect. The small-town kindergarten teacher is set to wed ambitious lawyer Sean Langley, and their plans for a dream wedding are well underway. Eva accepts that she will soon live life in the spotlight as a member of the prestigious Langley family, but can she overlook her fiancé’s tendency to dominate the details of her life and push the limits of her standards?

Mere weeks before the wedding, Eva is thrown into a traumatic, life-changing event that changes her view of family commitment and creates a sharp contrast between her ideals and Sean’s. With her engagement to Sean in jeopardy, Eva finds herself relying on the support and encouragement of Peter, her kind and attentive next-door neighbor. Faced with a choice between her penitent fiancé and the increasingly mysterious Peter, Eva is unprepared for the consequences—and peril—that come with her decision.

I'm so happy to be participating in this book tour with Lexi over at Book Bug.  Book tours are so great to be a part of.

The Guy Next Door is an LDS fiction novel.  I was excited to read this book and become acquainted with a new author (well, new to me).  The cover of this book looks so mysterious, right?  It made me very curious about what was inside.

Here's the main thing about this book for me.  It made me feel.  There was a part of the story where I seriously had tears in my eyes.  That is really hard to accomplish with me.  But, there it is.  I won't tell you what that scene was because that would be giving things away but it was so sad and emotional and I was all wrapped up in it.  Luckily that didn't last long though because nobody loves sad.  :)

There was romance and some heart pumping suspense.  I fell in love with Peter almost instantly.  Honest.  Wait until you read his sweet notes to Eva.  I think there aren't many things sexier than a guy that works hard to help you achieve your goals.  Physically and emotionally.  Peter is awesome.

There is no way you can read this book and not root for Eva.  She is strong and determined.  I love her loyalty to family and I think I want her to cook for me.  

I really, really enjoyed this book.

  2. This book sounds really good! I like the idea of a forbidden romance. I have an idea that I'm not going to like the fiancé and am going to be Team Peter! Lol I absolutely love little love notes! It's important to pick the guy that supports you emotionally, along with the goals and dreams you have for your life. Thanks for the giveaway!!!
