Grand Finale!! I Have People by Taylor Dean

Grand Finale Celebration!
On tour with Prism Book Tours
Feeling forgetful? Can’t remember where the heck you set down your keys? Your glasses?
We’ve all been there.
But . . . what if you forgot your life?
What if that life wasn’t worth remembering?
In spite of the happy cover, I HAVE PEOPLE deals with the sensitive issue of domestic abuse. It is about learning to recognize a good man versus a bad one. It’s about second chances and finding love, real love. 
The overpowering message behind I HAVE PEOPLE is that verbal, mental, and physical abuse is NOT OKAY! EVER!
Check out the tour and then read Holly’s story. It will change your life.

Missing any memories? 

Holly Sinclair is happily married to the love of her life, Gabriel. Young and in love, Holly hopes to have their first child soon. Of course, Gabriel wants to wait till Holly’s health is restored, much to Holly’s dismay. She feels perfectly fine. So what if she just woke up from an eight-month coma? So what if some of her memories are missing? She remembers Gabe and that’s all that matters, right?

That is, until HE enters her life again . . . she forgot about HIM.

It’s been a great Tour, exploring the origins and themes of I Have People by Taylor Dean. In case you missed part of the tour… here it is, one more time:  links to all the great guest posts and reviews with quotes

The Grand Finale!!
8 –  Launch!
9 – Snuggling on the Sofa – Amnesia

I vividly remember my favorite high school English teacher sadly telling us that his wife had been in a bicycle accident.

          Sylv Jenkins – The Cover of I Have People

I am a ‘happily ever after’ writer, therefore the happy cover matches the happy ending! I promise!

10 – PauseTime – The Music that Inspired I Have People

I love to share what song goes with which scene in my books. 

11 – TheBroke Book Bank – Ten Things You Don’t Know About I Have People

My heroine’s name, Holly Noel, came from a friend who had a Christmas baby and named her Holly Noel. LOVE

12 – Mel’sShelves – Review; The Worth of a Soul

I was excited to get this guest post, The Worth of a Soul. This is one of my favorite conversations from the book, too.

14 – TheReaddicts – Review; Two Kinds of Love

I Have People was not an easy light read I was expecting but it was a good read none the less.

15 – Paulette’sPapers – A Gentleman Who Says “Gosh” Review

The hero of I Have People is a true gentleman and in many ways the perfect man. He’s kind, soft-spoken, polite to a fault, and compassionate.

          Christy’s Cozy Corner – Review; The Inspiration behind I Have People

I love Taylor Dean’s books. They always feel so real…One minute you’re feeling giddy with happiness and the next you’re filled with dread!

16 – fuonlyknew – ReviewThe Prologue to I Have People

You’ll cry, you’ll laugh, you’ll want to kick someone, but most importantly, you’ll want to hug someone.
You’ll want to hug “your people.”

17 – Tressa’sWishful Endings – Review; The Locations Featured in I Have People

I also really liked Holly’s character. She was sweet and still strong. 

18 – LiteraryWinner – Review

I have to say it’s a bit eye-opening that Holly felt that if she wasn’t actually hit by her abuser, then she wasn’t being abused.  I can imagine that this may be thought by other people in similar situations.  

19 – GettingYour Read On – Review; Soooo Cliche!

I.  Love.  I Have People.  This book kept me engaged the whole way

22 –  A Tiffyfit’s Reading Corner – My Favorite Character in I Have People

The main character, Holly, discovers that she does have ‘people’ in her life who are willing to help her out of a bad situation—she just has to let them. 

 – Beck Valley Books – The Title of I Have People

It was at this moment that I realized, I Have People, and I always will!

23 – Deco MyHeart – Review

This is an emotional story of domestic abuse and recovery, wonderfully written with realistic characters, and it will stay with you long after you finish. How I wish women (and men) that are bring abused would seek help and realize they have “people” too.

          Mrs. Mommy Booknerds Book Reviews – Review

Dean creates a story that is not only engaging, gritty and real

24 – GreenMountain Couple – Review

I cried with Holly and laughed with her too.

25 – icultgen – Friendship

Angela was fun to write. She is funny, blunt, loyal, and loves her ‘girl time.’

  – I Am a Reader, Not a Writer  – When is it Abuse

 – That Girl Reads – Review; Two Kinds of Men

26 – Grand Finale Blast!
