HOLLIE PORTER BUILDS A RAFT, the *sequel* to MUST LOVE OTTERS, is now out in the wild and ready for your grabby hands!
RAFT picks up a year after the events that brought Hollie and Ryan together.
raft (noun): when two or more otters rest together, often holding hands, so they don’t drift apart
Hollie Porter has put her old gig as a 911 operator and sad single girl in an attic-bound box, right where it belongs. She’s rebounded nicely from her run-in with Chloe the Cougar in the wilds of British Columbia, and this new life alongside concierge-in-shining-armor Ryan Fielding? Way more fun. After relocating to Ryan’s posh resort at Revelation Cove, Hollie embarks on an all-new adventure as the Cove’s wildlife experience educator, teaching guests and their kids about otters and orca and cougars, oh my.
When darling Ryan gets down on one NHL-damaged knee and pops the question of a lifetime, Hollie realizes this is where the real adventure begins. It’s all cake tasting, flower choosing, and dress fittings until a long-lost family member shows up at the Cove and threatens to hijack her shiny new life, forcing Hollie to redefine what family means to her. What is she willing to sacrifice to have one of her very own?
As Ryan’s words echo in her head—“Our raft, our rules”—Hollie has to face facts: a raft isn’t always tied together with blood and genetics. Sometimes it’s secured by love and loyalty… and occasional help from the clever creatures that call Revelation Cove home.
Early RAFT feedback has been so positive!
From Shana @ A Book Vacation: “SO, I just adored HPBaR! Like, seriously, it’s amazeballs! I laughed aloud a ton; love Hollie and her funny antics … and seeing Hollie dealing with the idea of family, parenting, and all that true-to-life stuff that women eventually go through. … I loved this novel!”
Dawn says, “I just finished the book! So good. Cute, funny, and everything we’ve come to expect of the characters. But one thing I didn’t expect was me crying toward the end around 90%. … Seriously, a really great read!”
Megan enthusiastically shared her thoughts: “It’s only been a couple seconds since I’ve closed my Kindle and you have to know that you rock!! 100% no doubt, you flipping rocked it. A perfect and true Hollie sequel! I’m so happy and kind of high from it!!! So much, EVERYTHING!!!”
Evelyn says, “It’s a great, crisp, funny read. … The romance is strong but believable and the characters are all really well done, individual, and alive.”
LJ so generously messaged with, “Hollie is making me cry. Literally, not figuratively. … Damn you for creating realistic characters that make me hurt for them. But I still love you and your book.“
Awwww. Thanks, guys. ❤ Hollie and Ryan say hi.
