Searching For Tomorrow Tour, Giveaway & Review!!!!

Title: Searching for Tomorrow
Author: Kathryn M. Crane
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Young Adult
Publication Date: October 21, 2013

Some people are blessed to find that one certain person who completes them.

Wrynn’s yesterdays were what others only dream of having. She and Tripp were the best of friends before they even thought about love. They had the fairy tale life where ‘like’ turns into ‘love’, and ‘love’ becomes ‘happily ever after’.

What happens when life conspires against you, and snatches your soul mate from your arms?

…only her forever love ended much too soon.

Broken beyond her own ability to repair, Wrynn boxes up her grief and attempts to raise her three girls the best she can on her own. As time slowly passes, Wrynn relives her life with Tripp while struggling most days to get out of bed. She is reminded of him at every turn.

How do you set your grief and anguish aside? How do you pick up the shattered pieces, put those pieces back together again, and try to move on?

Wrynn tries to find the joy in life every single day through her daughters, family, and friends. Her twin brother Liam has dedicated himself to helping Wrynn put her life back together after losing his own love. On the other hand, her mother-in-law lives to torment her at every turn. Wrynn can't even find a chance to breathe, much less a desire to somehow search for her tomorrow.

Kathryn is a simple country girl who likes to spend time with her hubba, hunka hubby, her three kids and her friends. She loves to cook and really loves to eat! During the spring and summer, you will more than likely find her outside puttering around in her garden. When the veggies start coming in, she will probably be sweating over a hot canner in the kitchen, canning all the goodies she is blessed with. Kathryn likes to hike and go camping, and as a Girl Scout leader, she gets to do this pretty often! On cold winter nights, you will probably find her wrapped in a warm blanket, lost in a good book, while sitting in her rocking chair on the front porch!

Kathryn was born and raised in North Carolina, and while she loves to travel, she can't imagine ever leaving the mountains that she has come to call home. Not a day goes by that Kathryn doesn't thank God for abundantly blessing her. He has been so good to her, and she is very grateful. She holds Jeremiah 29:11 very close to her heart and believes it with every fiber of her being. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Kathryn loves flip flops, chocolate, sweet tea and dirt between her toes. As far back as she can remember, she's had a book in her hand. Reading has carried her to places she will never go. It has introduced her to people that she will never meet. When life is great and when it is rough, she's always been able to find a book to carry her through. She finally decided to write down some of the stories in her head (yes, be scared) and heart after dawdling around and wasting years dreaming. She hopes you enjoy reading those stories as much as she loves writing them!

I loved this book pretty much the moment I touched it.  Being a military brat I was raised to understand that at any moment I could lose my father and brothers.  Maybe that is why this novel hurt so much at times.  Because that loss would be devastating!  But to lose the one you love, built a family with, and was your best friend, would be soul crushing.

I found myself wondering what I would do if I were Wrynn.  Would I be able to go on with my life at peace knowing that my husband died doing his job?  Would I be able to be strong for my amazing daughters who remind me everyday of the man that I will never see again?  Would I be strong enough to face each day with grace?  Would I be able to sleep at night without dreams haunting me of what could have been?

Wrynn has to answer a lot of these questions in Searching for Tomorrow.  Tripp was her whole world and when she loses him she has to face a much harsher and darker place.  She has to be the light for her three daughters in a time when she can barely breathe.  She has to face off with the Mother in Law from hell.  And she has to do this while dealing with her own heartbreak and devastation.

I wasn't expecting this story.  I was not sure what to expect to be perfectly honest.  But OMG if it wasn't a novel that caught your attention immediately and kept it the whole book.  The ending was a bit fast for me, but I know there is a second book on the way so I will keep my fingers crossed for answers in that one!

Let me warn you, especially if you are a military wife, this was a tough read at times.  I broke down and cried really ugly tears.  But after I was done reading, it felt like a cleansing experience.  Well done Ms. Crane!

I give this debut novel 4.5 lipsticks.  Heart wrenching and painful at times, but crazy beautiful and well written!
