It’s time for Love A Little Sideways!

I know folks in the US are gearing up for Thanksgiving, but what better way to treat yourself than with some summertime fun (and doom!) with the Kowalskis?

sideways150Liz Kowalski is heading home to Whitford, Maine—this time for good. Eager for her family, a fresh start and some fun, she doesn’t count on being rescued by the chief of police her very first night back in town. Drew is everything she’s not looking for…so why is she still so attracted to him?

After a brief, forbidden rendezvous at her brother’s wedding, Drew Miller expects Liz to return to New Mexico and stay there. He’s searching for someone to settle down with, not a casual fling with his best friend’s sister. But when they’re stuck together on the annual Kowalski camping trip, things start going a little sideways. Keeping their hands off each other proves just as impossible as keeping their secret from becoming public knowledge.

Amid family, mud and melted marshmallow, Liz and Drew try to fight what’s growing between them. But a little time alone, a lot of chemistry and too many opinions might be just what it takes to bring together two people so determined not to fall in love.

    Bought it this morning. Real life has been in the way most of the day, but I plan to curl up in my reading chair now and stay up late to finish it.

    I was going to try to wait til this weekend to read it, but i couldn’t resist!I just finished it and I loved it! It’s just as wonderful as all of the other Kowalski books ( though Josh and Katie might be my favorite couple ever).
    Thanks for a great story!

    Yay! I’m glad you couldn’t resist, and I’m glad you liked Drew and Liz! (And we’ll see Josh and Katie again in Taken With You and Falling For Max.)

    Really liked this one overall, although I will say the part where Emma is all of the sudden the wife of Liz’s cousin instead of the wife of her brother (ch 10, para 4) kinda threw me outta the story and stuck with me for the few additional times her name was mentioned. Just one of those things that jumps out at you when you’re reading.

    Lulu, I’m sorry for the mistake. We try to catch them all, but sometimes they slip through the cracks. That’s a distracting one, unfortunately. :(

    Lori, I know there’s an audiobook version coming, but I’m not sure when. Unfortunately I don’t get that info, but I’m hoping it’s very soon because a lot of readers enjoy audiobooks. I check every morning and I’ll announce here and on Twitter and Facebook when it goes up.
