NEVER LET GO - Elizabeth Goddard - One Free Book


Welcome back, Elizabeth. You have a lot of books out now. What is your favorite setting to use in your books? 
Setting serves as inspiration for me. I love nature, mountains, waterfalls, and coastlines. For quite a few books now I’ve used the Pacific Northwest. I lived in Oregon and spent a lot of time in Seattle as well. I love the rocky coast and the mountains. So you could say that’s one of my favorite settings. Another favorite is Wyoming. I love the Jackson Hole area, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone National Parks. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to set a series in Jackson Hole!

What do you look for when you’re shopping for a book to buy for yourself?
Usually an author I know, but often an amazing cover will draw my attention or an intriguing premise. I especially love to read in my genre—romantic suspense. I try to steer clear of reading too much of the back cover copy. I don’t want to know much about what is going to happen. (reviewers, please don’t give away the storyline when you write reviews! LOL)

I so agree with that last statement, Elizabeth. Give us a little tour of the setting for this book.
The story starts in one setting, then the characters land in Wyoming and the remainder of the series will stay there. Jackson Hole is the valley between the Teton Range and the Gros Ventre Range in Wyoming. Grand Teton National Park is there and nearby Yellowstone National Park as well. The mountains are amazing and an important part of the setting as is Bridger-Teton national forest.

Is this novel part of a series or a stand-alone book?
Never Let Go is the first book in the Uncommon Justice series. So far there are three books in the series, and they center around the three McKade brothers. Austin McKade is the brother in the first book but readers will meet Heath in book one too, and I hope they will be eager to read his story next. 

What other books do you have coming out soon?
In the fall, Always Look Twice (book two in Uncommon Justice) is the sequel to Never Let Go and Heath’s story.

I also write for Harlequin Love Inspired Suspense. Distress Signal (book 3 in Coldwater Bay Intrigue) just released in January and in May, Running Target, releases. It’s the fourth and last book in my Coldwater Bay Intrigue series.

Please give us a glimpse inside your home.
Do I have to? LOL! I live in a small parsonage next to the church where my husband pastors. I have three sons living at home with me. My daughter is in her twenties and lives in California and we’re in Michigan. With the four bedrooms in use, I have taken over the living room as my office!

Tell us about the story.
I don’t think I can say it better than the back cover copy!

As a forensic genealogist, Willow Anderson is following in her late grandfather's footsteps in her quest for answers about a baby abducted from the hospital more than twenty years ago. The case may be cold, but things are about to heat up when someone makes an attempt on her life to keep her from discovering the truth.

Ex-FBI agent--and Willow's ex-flame--Austin McKade readily offers his help to protect the woman he never should have let get away. Together they'll follow where the clues lead them, even if it means Austin must face the past he's spent much of his life trying to forget. And even if it puts Willow's tender heart at risk.

In this fast-paced and emotional page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps the stakes high, the romantic tension sparking, and the outcome uncertain until the very end.

Please give us the first page of the book.

Twenty-One Years Ago
Houston, Texas
Nursing scrubs? Check. White sneakers? Check. Keycard? Check.
Calm, even breathing? Nope.
She had everything she needed to get in and out quickly. The plan seemed so easy. Too easy. Then why did her heart pound against her rib cage until it ached? Why did her pulse roar in her ears as she walked the sterile hallway, heading for the maternity ward?

Palms sweating, she pushed through double doors into a wide corridor. Almost there.

Everything inside screamed for her to keep her head down. But that might give the wrong impression.

Forcing her chin high, she carried the file folders with purpose as her sneakers squeaked down the long white hallway. She made it to the wing where mothers and their newborn babies rested until released and found it busy with food service workers, janitorial personnel, and other hospital staff. Good. She’d been right to carefully calculate her arrival for the lunch hour.

Wow! I can hardly wait to read this book. How can readers find you on the Internet?
