Completed Project: “Withering Hope” by Layla Hagen

Hi, everyone!

I finished a job for the lovely author, Layla Hagen, last week, and she has truly humbled me with her words. This is her testimonial:

“I highly recommend working with Karen. She is a fantastic beta reader. Her attention to detail is invaluable. At the same time, she can see the bigger picture, and how each little piece of a story contributes toward it.
She connects with the writing at a deep level, and so is able to suggest changes that resonate with the characters and the story.”

Her book, “Withering Hope”, which is set to release 19th January, 2015, is a standalone contemporary romance.
This is a truly wonderful story! Deeply emotional, and it made me cry…just beautiful.

Layla is the author of The Lost Series, and if you are a lover of romance novels, like me, I definitely recommend that you read it.

❤ Thank you again, Layla! ❤





Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect.

But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.

With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts.
As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest.

Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love.

Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden.
