She’s here! Today is the official birthday of my second novel With You! If you haven’t heard about it yet, here’s the summary:
Kristen has nothing to complain about. She has a successful career, good friends, and a killer apartment in a city she loves. But Kristen feels restless and stuck. When she decides to spend a year in the small town of Riverton, she expects quality time with her dad, a change of scenery, and new experiences to spark her creativity. She should have known things wouldn’t quite go how she planned. For fans of Beth O'Leary, Emma St. Clair, and Sophie Cousens.
And here are some things that very kind people have said about it:
It is a pleasure entering into the world of With You where the likable characters enjoy a true sense of camaraderie. There’s a real community feel in this novel. I loved the female and male viewpoints which offered insight into the smoldering relationship between Kristen and Jack. The twists and turns held my attention until the very end of the novel. Great stuff! - Gail Aldwin, This Much Huxley Knows
Curling up with this sweet romance novel is like a comfortable conversation with a best friend over steaming chai lattes; warm and engaging. With relatable characters and vivid descriptions, the story of Kristen and Jack’s complicated relationship is a delightful slow burn—until the sparks are undeniable…" - Laura Thomas, The Orphan Beach
With You is a book you'll want to take to the beach or snuggle up with on a cold winter night. Reading it is like being wrapped in the warmth and love of extended family with characters so well written you'll feel like you've known them forever. The story of the main character is one I wouldn't mind reading about in sequels, yet when this book ends, the conclusion leaves you with a sense of peace and satisfaction. Overall a very satisfying read that I would recommend. ~Barbara A. Luker, I Carry Your Heart
Against a backdrop of sun-soaked afternoons by the lake and cool autumn evenings by the fire, Amanda Waters explores haunted pasts and delicate new beginnings in her exquisitely tender story centered around two guarded introverts. ~ Kira Das, Netgalley review

I like to write stories about regular people who feel like friends, stories that connect us to humanity, and hopefully bring a little light into readers’ lives.
