Today, we have author Jenny Elliott on this her blog. Her debut novel Save Me, which was published by Swoon Reads, came out two weeks ago.
Debut-novelist Jenny Elliott’s thrilling romance, chosen by readers, writers, and publishers for the first list in the new Swoon Reads imprint, pours on the tension and danger in an addictive combination that will keep you turning pages!Isn't that a gorgeous cover? I love it! For our blog tour stop we asked Jenny our favorite question.
Something strange is going on in the tiny coastal town of Liberty, Oregon. Cara has never seen a whale swim close enough for her to touch it—let alone knock her into the freezing water. Fortunately, cute newcomer David is there to save her, and the rescue leads to a bond deeper than Cara ever imagined.
But then she learns something about David that changes everything, and Cara is devastated. She turns to her best friend for support, but Rachel has changed. She’s suddenly into witchcraft, and is becoming dangerously obsessed with her new boyfriend….
Cara has lost her best friend, discovered that her soul mate is off limits, and has attracted the attention of a stalker. But she’s not completely alone. Her mysterious, gorgeous new friend Garren is there to support her. But is Garren possibly too perfect?
Who would you Kiss, Marry and Kill among these three and why:Here's what Jenny has to say...
Group 1: Mr. Crawford (from Mansfield Park), Mr. Wickham (from P&P), Mr. Willoughby (from Sense & Sensibility)
Group 2: Edward Cullen, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson
Group 3: Peeta, Gale, Finnick

In the second group, again, I'm not sure about kissing or marrying, but I'd swoon most over Edward Cullen. He might be an obsessive, peeping Tom type, and he has a bit of a temper at times, but I would definitely appreciate his true love and devotion. Also, he looks 17, but has (or should have) the maturity of someone over 100. Harry Potter and Percy Jackson seem like babies to me in comparison...
I have a tougher time deciding between the guys in the third group. Peeta is one to secretly love a girl for years and he remains true to that love, which is definitely swoonworthy. Gale is a best friend, and that can be hard to come by in a guy who would also be a romantic partner. Then Finnick is so devoted to his love, he still pines after her when she goes insane--even when she dies. I'd kiss any of these guys. :) But all things being equal, if I were to have to choose to marry one, I'd have to go with the one I felt the most chemistry with. As far as book (and movie) boyfriends go, for me, that would be Gale...
Thanks for having me! Hope readers love Save Me as much as I loved writing it...
