Kara Isaac lives in Wellington, New Zealand. Her debut romantic comedy, Close To You, is just released from Howard Books. When she's not working her day job as a public servant, chasing around a ninja preschooler and his feisty toddler sister, she spends her time writing horribly bad first drafts and wishing you could get Double Stuf Oreos in New Zealand.
Kara loves to connect with readers.

CLOSE TO YOU
Allison Shire (yes, like where the Hobbits live) is a disgraced academic who is done with love. Her belief in “happily ever after” ends the day she discovers her husband is still married to a wife she knows nothing about. She finds a use for her English degree by guiding tours through famous sites featured in the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies.
Jackson Gregory is on the cusp of making it big. Then suddenly his girlfriend leaves him—for his biggest business competitor—and takes his most guarded commercial secrets with her. To make matters worse, the Iowa farm that has been in his family for generations is facing foreclosure. Determined to save his parents from financial ruin he accompanies his uncle to the bottom of the world to spend three weeks pretending to be a die-hard Lord of the Rings fan. The one thing that stands between him and his goal is a know-it-all tour guide who pegs him as a fake the moment he walks off the plane.
When Allison leads the group through the famous sites of the Tolkien movies, she and Jackson start to see each other differently, and as they keep getting thrown together on the tour, they find themselves drawn to each other. Neither expects to fall in love again, but can they find a way beyond their regrets to take a chance on the one thing they’re not looking for?
