Blog Tour: Room for More by Beth Ehemann

Title: Room for More
Author: Beth Ehemann
Release date February: 20th 2014 

Four years ago, my dreams were shattered in an instant.

Three months ago, I found something I haven’t had in years.


That hope came in the form of a sexy, carefree hockey player named Brody Murphy. He swooped in and won me over with his big heart and the way he cared for me…and my girls. When they look at him, they see the father they’ve never had.

Now, my past and present are colliding and the outcome might just be too much for me to bear. Can I make the right decision when I’ve spent my whole life making the wrong ones?


 I loved Room For You the first book in the Cranberry Inn Series, the end of that book, not so much. So I patiently waited for Beth to finish Room For More and to see where she was going to take us the readers, but most importantly the characters who had become a part of me.
And Beth didn't disappoint me. She made me laugh (the barn scene, O.M.G! I will never look at the color navy the same way,) she made me cry (Kacie outside the Inn on her knees,) she filled me with tenderness (the twinkies calling Brody daddy.) Most importantly she made me feel, the pain, the anguish, the laughs, and the tears became mine, because that's how much she made me care for and love every single one of her characters.
Kacie is still loving and caring and always putting her girls first, but now she's doubting herself for the first time in years, second guessing herself and her decisions with Zach in the picture. The twinkies are still adorable and playful and full of love, not only for their mom but they star showing that innocent, unconditional love that only children can give to Brody, and it melts your heart.
But to me the real star of this book is Brody, not because he's handsome or because he has a sexy career (yes, I think hockey players are insanely sexy) but because the love and vulnerability he shows for those he loves, because throughout the book he puts his loved ones first knowing that his own future is on the line.
Alexa, Lauren, Sophia, Fred, Adam, Viper and the rest of the gang were not forgotten, they were well developed and every single one of them occupied a special place within storyline. RFM was also written in dual point of views, which let you understand and see where each of the main characters was heading. The true measure of a good writer in my book is how much he/she can transport you to the story and made you live those character's lives like it was your own. I think it's safe to say that Beth accomplished that goal. Can't wait to see what's next...

Beth Ehemann lives in the northern suburbs of Chicago with her 4 crazy kids and her husband, who’s also a big kid most of the time. She loves reading, photography, martinis and all things Chicago Cubs.
