A Q&A with Helena Hunting
In honor of Forever Summer Reading, I am happy to share with all of you a Q&A with Helena Hunting. Hunting's latest novel, THE GOOD LUCK CHARM, is a romance filled with humor and heart while dealing with first love and second chances.
Your heroine spots her man at a beach filled with beautiful women. At this point she doesn't yet know him that well--she just knows she wants to know him better. What does she do to get his attention?
Lilah isn’t one to play games, so she’d likely go right up to him and introduce herself.
Favorite end-of-summer activity?
Tubing on the river as long as it’s still warm enough. Second would be the Beer Festival in my town that takes place in mid-September!
Where did you get the inspiration for your latest book?
Hockey is so full of superstitions and I wanted to explore those and how they can impact how a person perceives their own successes. I also loved the idea of a second chance romance and two people finding their way back to each other.
Do you have a summer tradition?
We have a lot of birthdays and celebrations in the summer. Both my daughter and I were born in August and it’s also my wedding anniversary. I like to disappear up to the family cottage on my birthday if I have a chance!
If the main characters in your newest book planned a staycation, what would they do in their town?
Since they live in a town with a lake, they would likely spend the majority of their staycation sitting on the dock, enjoying some sunshine and peace. They’d go to all their favourite restaurants and take their dog on a hike in the woods, but mostly they’d enjoy some alone time!
THE GOOD LUCK CHARM by Helena Hunting
Lilah isn't sure what hurt worse: the day Ethan left her to focus on his hockey career or the day he came back eight years later. He might think they can pick up just where they left off, but she's no longer that same girl and never wants to be again.
Ethan wants his glory days back. And that includes having Lilah by his side. With her, he was magic. They were magic. All he has to do is make her see that.
Just when Lilah might finally be ready to let Ethan in, though, she finds out their reunion might have nothing to do with love and everything to do with improving his game. But Ethan's already lost her once, and even if it costs him his career, he'll do anything to keep from losing her again.
