Today we sit down with Liv Grant from Kate McKeever’s Chandler Tennessee Series.

What was your life like before your author started pulling your strings?
I was, if not happily, then temporarily satisfied hiding.

What’s the one trait you like most about yourself?
The ability to adapt. It’s proven to be very handy, so far.

What do you like least about yourself?
My fear

What is the strangest thing your author has had you do or had happen to you?
To put me in the path of Jake Greene. And it’s also the best thing ever.

Do you argue with your author? If so, what do you argue about?
We haven’t really argued but I have hidden under the covers a time or two during the books.

What is your greatest fear?
That my past will end up harming the people I love.

What makes you happy?
Being with the people I love and knowing they love me and are safe.

If you could rewrite a part of your story, what would it be? Why?
I’d have been brave at the beginning of my story, rather than the end.

Of the other characters in your book, which one bugs you the most? Why?
My ex. Enough said?

Of the other characters in your book, which one would you love to trade places with? Why?
No one. I don’t really need to be anyone else and wouldn’t wish my past on anyone else.

Tell us a little something about your author. Where can readers find her website/blog?
Kate is one of those unsung writers that people don’t know about. She writes a great story, full of love, angst and suspense. Readers can learn more about her at her website

What's next for you?
I’ll be showing up in later books in the Chandler series. I’m not sure what the future holds for me, but knowing Kate, it won’t be dull!

Tender Mercies
Book 2 in the Chandler Tennessee Series

Liv Grant has her life planned, at least for the next month or so. She’ll stay in Chandler and work at the Old Time Diner, honing her baking skills. At least that’s what she’s told herself. Her interest in Jake Greene is not the reason she wants to stay on in the small town, rather than moving on and staying hidden from her abusive ex-husband. When a prowler begins to jangle her nerves, she decides maybe it’s time to consider relocating, only to have Jake and her intense attraction to him tempt her to stay on. Her sister, in Florida, is safe, she is safe, why not stay? Then her sister begins to have troubles. Will Liv stay in the small Tennessee town and face her demons or keep running?

Tender Mercies will be available in April. Meanwhile, you might want to check out Liv’s first adventure, Christmas at the Old Time Diner.
