Something strange is going on in the tiny coastal town of Liberty, Oregon. Cara has never seen a whale swim close enough for her to touch it—let alone knock her into the freezing water. Fortunately, cute newcomer David is there to save her, and the rescue leads to a bond deeper than Cara ever imagined.
So when she learns David's interning as a teacher at her school, Cara is devastated. She turns to her best friend for support, but Rachel has changed. She's suddenly into witchcraft & is becoming dangerously obsessed with her new boyfriend.
Cara has lost her best friend, discovered her soul mate is off limits, and has attracted the attention of a stalker. But she's not completely alone. Her mysterious, gorgeous new friend Garren is there to support her. But is Garren possibly too perfect?
Cara pulled out of her parking spot and felt a sickening thud against her car's rear bumper. She yelped and slammed on the brakes. Her head flew forward, then whipped back. Her fingernails dug into the vinyl on the steering wheel and a heavy weight sank to the bottom of her stomach. Her heart stopped, then took off at a gallop.
In the rearview mirror, she saw the face of a teenage boy, about her age. She had no idea where he'd come from. Twisting around, she got a better view of the guy through the back window. Sky-blue eyes stared back at her.
She thanked God he was standing. Her trembling hand fumbled with the gearshift until she managed to put the car in park. She left the motor running, stepped out, and drew in a strained breath of seaweed-scented air.
Inching over to the stranger, she saw that—by some miracle—he stood straight, apparently unaffected by the impact of her Honda Civic.
"I'm so sorry," she said, shaking inside and out. "Should I call 9-1-1? Are you hurt?" Her cheeks flamed.
"No, you just tapped me," he said, his voice deep and melodic. "I'm fine."

Now that Save Me has been published, I’m able to reflect upon the long, hard road I’ve travelled towards publication. Truth be told, though, the road wasn’t as long or hard as I’d expected, or as I’d been told it would be. Yes, I put in the requisite 10,000 hours necessary for developing writing ...read moreauthors, confessional, fans, Jenny Elliott, Publicity, Publishing, Save Me, signing, Swoon Reads
When I first wrote Save Me, I only had a basic idea of how much work (and fun) the marketing and publicity aspects of the book business can be. From the start, since Swoon Reads selected my novel for publication, keeping up with social media — which for me primarily involves Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest — has taken up a good deal ...read moreauthors, Jenny Elliott, Marketing, Publicity, Publishing, Save Me, signings, Swoon Reads, tour
I enjoy editing ALMOST as much as writing. No, really. I do. While I love the creative process — creating characters, envisioning a storyline, and pouring scenes onto paper (or tapping them out on a keyboard) — writing a first draft of a novel is HARD. When I finish a story, no matter how rough the draft, I breathe a deep sigh ...read moreauthors, Editing, experience, Holly West, Jenny Elliott, process, revision, Save Me, Swoon Reads
