    I find it interesting that just yesterday I was looking for a book set in Australia or New Zealand (for a book for the summer reading program at my library – it is a required category) and came across Kara’s name.  I think the book sounds great and will definitely be looking to read it soon.

    God’s timing is one of those things that tends to be frustrating when we’re in a situation (boy, do I know), but later, when we look back, it’s always better. I’m glad God worked the perfect contract for you!

    I love New Zealand and I love Lord of the Rings, so this sounds like a fantastic book for me! LOL — have been following Kara’s journey to publication on her Facebook page, and have both books on my “to read” list. Congratulations to Kara for her success after all that hard work!

    I am not a Tolkien fan, but I really like the premise of this book and Kara is a new-to-me author so I would love to read this one. Thanks for the interview and the giveaway!

      Hi Loraine. I’ve had a few readers tell me that they couldn’t care less about Tolkien but loved Close To You. Hopefully you feel the same way if you have the opportunity to read it 🙂

    Crushed by a flying portapotty?!?! Wow. That must have been surreal! I immediately fell in love with your book cover and I can’t wait to read it! It sounds like a fun story.

      So lovely to see you here, Heidi! I’m a big fan of my covers too. I think I’ve got some of the best ones around but I’m a little biased 😉

    I have been watching this book go around on book blogs and the web for a little while now.  I am hoping to either win a copy or purchase a copy before or at CFRR.  It is totally on my TBR pile and I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy.  It was fun to learn more about Kara via the interview too!  🙂

    Kara, it must be exciting to be the Private Secretary for the Prime Minister.  Congratulations on your debut novel.  I love Tolkien!  So glad Ellie was at your launch.  Thank you for the giveaway!  🙂

      Hi Caryl. It was a great opportunity! It’s no longer my job since with two little ones I needed some work life balance back but I thoroughly enjoyed it 🙂

    What a cute cover and great story line.  I am new to this author and would so love to read this.

    Kara, you are a new author to me. I’m sure that after taking care of all of your responsibilities you are ready for some sleep. I can’t imagine trying to write while taking care of a home and family. Thank you for writing clean Christian books for us to enjoy reading!

    Kara-

    I read this book thanks to NetGalley and absolutely, 100% LOVED it! I was glad I wasn’t sitting anywhere that anyone could watch me reading it because I laughed, snickered, giggle-snorted so often that I probably looked not quite right. I would love to win a copy to re-read myself and to share with my friends. Everyone needs a good giggle sometimes, right?

    Just a quick reply of thanks, as I had not previously been familiar with the works of Kara Isaac.  Appreciated both the interview and book details included in the post.  Looking forward to giving her first book a read!

    Thanks so much everyone for dropping by and for all your well wishes! I was so thrilled Ellie was able to make it to my book launch the other week after being a fan of Soul Inspirationz for such a long time 🙂

  • #10627

    So excited to read this book. I’ve always wanted to wander through the Shire. And now I can do it while enjoying a romance. It’s the perfect deal. 🙂 Can’t wait. It’s at the top of my To Buy list (I thought I’d already gotten it, but it didn’t come with the others!), so if I don’t win, Close to You’s still High Priority for me. 🙂

    Excited about this book! Can’t wait to get it and get to it in my TBR stack!
