Harper Summer 2016 Blog Tour: A Walk In The Sun By Michelle ZinkA Walk In The Sun by Michelle Zink
Published by Harper Collins on May 3, 2016
Genres: Young Adult

Rose Darrow never wanted to spend her life working on her family’s farm. But when her family is rocked by an unexpected tragedy she has no choice but to put her plans for the future—and dreams of escaping her small town—on hold.

Bodhi Lowell left home as a kid and hasn’t looked back. Years of working farm jobs has given him the one thing he wants most: freedom to travel without answering to anyone. He’s already looking past his job at Darrow Farm and plans on leaving in September—until he meets Rose.

Neither Rose nor Bodhi can deny the sparks flying between them, but with the end of summer looming, they must decide if it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all


You can pre-order it here:
AmazonB&N  *  IndieBound  *  The Book Depository


Pssst! – Don’t forget to look for the word with ** around it! 

Michelle Zink’s writing really grabbed me with her duology, Lies I Told.   I saw her name on this book and I was like



Really, there is just something about books that tell the story of that one summer.  Rose is forced back to her family’s farm when what she really wants is to be gone from her small town



So, when Bodhi drifts into town (and onto the farm), he represents the life she wishes she had, oh and they also totally fall for each other.



A Walk In The Sun **has** everything you could possible hope for in a summer romance story and I can’t wait!

    This book sounds like a really good read! And if I won your giveaway I think I would either choose The Hunt by Megan Shepherd or Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes!

  2. Annie JC

    Thanks for sharing this! This one sounds amazing too! I’d say this one, Queen of Hearts or The Last Time We Were Us, or The Crown! O so many! Thanks!

  3. Kimberly

    This does sound like a fun summer romance. I’m not sure which book I would choose. Possibly The Hunt or Trader Angels.

  4. Red

    A Walk in the Sun sounds really good. Thanks for making me add another one to my TBR list. 😉 I might pick this one or I’ve been really anticipating Ivory And Bone by Julie Eshbaugh & The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye. So many great books coming out. Thank you so much!

  5. This looks like a great post and thanks for the extra giveaway! If I won, I may actually pick this one. But who knows, I may change my mind by that time because there are SO MANY great choices!!

  6. Cindy

    I would probably choose The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye. Been looking forward to that one since forever! Thanks for the chance!

  7. Kathleen P

    I’m loving the cover and the premise for this book. I love those “one summer” stories too.

    IfI had to pick one book, I’d probably pick Traitor Angels 🙂
