#ForeverSummerReading: THE GOOD LUCK CHARM by Helena Hunting - Guest Post and Giveaway

I'm holding onto summer for as long as I can. One way to do that is with Summer Reading. Forever Romance has so many books to choose from! Right now I have my eyes on FROM HERE TO YOU, DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES, and THE GOOD LUCK CHARM, but I know I'll want to read them all.

THE GOOD LUCK CHARM published on August 7, 2018.
Genre: Romance / Fiction / Romance / Contemporary 
Pages: 384

About the Book:

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.

“Fabulously fun! Lilah and Ethan’s second-chance romance charmed me from the first page to the swoon-worthy end.” -Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author

Helena Hunting Shares What's in Her Beach Bag
I grew up going to the cottage on Loon Lake in Ontario, Canada. It’s north of Muskoka, which means nothing to most people unless you live in Toronto and you have some idea how far it is from civilization. Even now I only get one bar on my phone, although if I stand like a flamingo on the edge of the deck where the 12-foot drop is, I may get two bars for approximately 1.25 seconds.
In addition to being well removed from humanity, there are 111 steps down to the lake. It’s a lot of steps. Enough that I (along with everyone else) pack a beach bag very carefully prior to our decent to the dock.
What’s in my beach bag you ask?
  1. Enough liquid to last me the next three hours: at least one bottle of water and a bottle of wine, plus ice cubes in a plastic tumbler with a lid. Because wine.
  2. Sunscreen. It doesn’t matter how far north you are, you’ll burn if you sit in direct sunlight for several hours at a time. And let’s face it, the plan is to sit in direct sunlight for as long as humanly possible on the dock days of summer.
  3. My paperback copy of Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan, with all my favourite parts earmarked so I don’t have to work to read the sections I adore. Do not bring an electronic reading device to the dock unless you plan to use it to kill dock spiders. The cracks between the boards are three times the width of a Kindle and if it ends up between the cracks, you’re never getting it back.
  4. A portable speaker with your fun summer playlist so you can relax and read your book with a beach-inspired soundtrack in the background. I love listening to bands like The Tragically Hip or artists like Ben Howard and Ruelle when I’m on the dock, relaxing and reading.
  5. Snacks. If you’re spending hours on the dock and it’s a full mile uphill to get back to the cottage for food (I might be exaggerating on the distance, but after two glasses of wine, 200 feet of elevation seems a lot like a mile), then you need to bring along something to snack on, like Doritos or Funyons. Or if you’re feeling particularly summery and health-conscious you could bring a fruit platter, which is also useful for making sangria.
