Katie McGarry has been a favourite of mine ever since her debut, I have loved all of her books and am always on the lookout for what will be next.
Only A Breath Apart is a stand-alone young adult contemporary novel, which is music to my ears… all except the stand alone part. I love it when I discover the first of a new series because I know I will have extended time with the characters. Having said that, a stand-alone is like instant gratification with well developed characters and a complete story.
Jesse and Scarlett are characters I can’t wait to meet, if only it wasn’t still six months away.
January 22, 2019 is the eagerly awaited release date for what is sure to be an emotionally charged novel of challenges with at least a dash of romance. I can’t wait to get a peek at the inside of the book, but for now here’s the synopsis and a look at the very pretty cover.
About ONLY A BREATH APART:
Jesse dreams of working the land that’s been in his family forever. But he’s cursed to lose everything he loves most.
Scarlett is desperate to escape her “charmed” life. But leaving a small town is easier said than done.
Despite their history of heartbreak, when Jesse sees a way they can work together to each get what they want, Scarlett can’t say no. Each midnight meeting between Jesse and Scarlett will push them to confront their secrets and their feelings for each other.

And here’s all the places you can stalk, I mean follow, Katie McGarry:
My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
