Today we are celebrating the release of The Hardest Fight by Amy Vastine.
The Hardest Fight is the third and final book in the Chicago Sisters Series. How did it feel to finally tell the last Everhart sister’s story?
It is definitely bittersweet to see this series come to an end. I am happy to get to tell Lucy’s story, but sad to say goodbye to this family. What’s great about writing connected stories is that you get to touch on the lives of the characters from the other books and continue to delve into their happy ever after. I loved that part of it.
What’s your favorite scene?
This is an easy one. My favorite scene is when the hero, Dylan Hunt, gets knocked out while trying to rescue Lucy from an attacker and he wakes up in the ambulance with my favorite paramedic Charlie (from The Best Laid Plans) at his side. Dylan does not know what is going on and when Lucy shows up at the hospital, his train of thought while he tries to figure it all out makes me giggle just thinking about it.
If you could pick a movie star to play the hero and heroine, who would it be?
From Book 1 in the series, Lucy has always been Charlize Theron to me (I love her!) She does such a fantastic job of playing really smart, tough women, and that is what Lucy is.
I didn’t have a good idea of what Dylan looked like right away but as I got into writing this book, he morphed into Captain America himself, Chris Evans. He’s a clean-cut, all- American boy.
What do you plan to work on next?
I am about to sign a contract to write two new books for Heartwarming that are the beginning of a series that centers on a country music record company in Tennessee called Grace Note Records. I am excited to get started on it and so happy to be given the opportunity to continue writing for this amazing line.
What are you reading for pleasure right now?
Well, I’m at the RWA National Conference in New York right now and am taking home about two dozen books to read. (Misty knows what I’m talking about!) But currently, I am reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I can tell this one is going to break my heart. I was reading it on the plane to New York willing myself not to bawl like a baby in front of a plane full of strangers. It is a a tough one but beautifully written!
Speaking of RWA, come back tomorrow to see some fun pictures from the conference. The Heartwarming ladies have been having a blast! And feel free to enter our RWA giveaway by clicking on the Heartwarming Bingo tab up top!
