Kristan, have you ever been to Martha’s Vineyard? Harper’s descriptions were wonderful in painting the atmosphere of the place. Though I’ve never been there, I could easily picture the intimate setting of the small towns there thanks to all the small details regarding the lights, colours and scents interwoven in Harper’s impression of the town and her home.
Stella: “Crotch!” is a favourite curse or turn of phrase of Harper’s. Is it an expression you use yourself or was it something you thought Harper would say a lot? Are there any other curse words/catch phrases typical to any of your other characters?
Stella: The dynamic between Nick and Harper is an unusual one: Harper despite being the girl is the commitment phobic and it is Nick, the guy, who is the emotional, “love at first sight, we’ll live happily ever after” part of their equation, despite his own childhood being less than ideal and happy. Could you tell us a bit why their dynamic works (and how this repartition of roles came to be)?
Divorce attorney Harper James can't catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister's destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she's being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancé back at home is not likely to be sympathetic. Harper can't help that Nick has come blazing back into her life in all of his frustratingly appealing, gorgeous architect glory. But in Nick's eyes, Harper's always been the one. If they can only get it right this time, forever might be waiting -- just around the bend.
