Posted August 1, 2014 by Jen in Blog Tour, Giveaway, LGBTQ Tags: ,


Hello and thanks to That’s What I’m Talking About for letting me be here today!

I’m Z.A. Maxfield, coming at you from lovely sunny southern California where I’m blogging about my latest release, Home The Hard Way.


I’m doing a giveaway and there are a couple different ways to win! At each tour stop, one lucky winner will get to choose any book from my backlist, so if you’re new to Z.A. Maxfield, this is a great way to find out if you want to dive in! At the end of the tour, I’ll be giving away a Riptide gift certificate, so you’re going to want to follow along the whole blog tour HERE for your best chance at a prize!

About the book:

HomeTheHardWay_500x750Here’s the blurb for Home the Hard Way: Dare Buckley has come home—or at least, he’s come back to Palladian, the small town he left as a teenager. After a major lapse in judgment forced him to resign from the Seattle PD, Palladian is the only place that’ll hire him. There’s one benefit to hitting rock bottom, though: the chance to investigate the mystery of his father’s suicide.

Dare also gets to reacquaint himself with Finn Fowler, whose childhood hero worship ended in uncomfortable silence when Dare moved away. But Finn isn’t the same little kid Dare once protected. He’s grown into an attractive, enigmatic stranger who neither wants nor needs what Dare has to offer.

In fact, Dare soon realizes that Finn’s keeping secrets—his own and the town’s. And he doesn’t seem to care that Dare needs answers. The atmosphere in Palladian, like its namesake river, appears placid, but dark currents churn underneath. When danger closes in, Dare must pit his ingenuity against his heart, and find his way home the hard way.

About the Author:

HomeTheHardWay_150x300Z. A. Maxfield started writing in 2007 on a dare from her children and never looked back.  Pathologically disorganized, and perennially optimistic, she writes as much as she can, reads as much as she dares, and enjoys her time with family and friends. Three things reverberate throughout all her stories: Unconditional love, redemption, and the belief that miracles happen when we least expect them.

If anyone asks her how a wife and mother of four can find time for a writing career, she’ll answer, “It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you give up housework.”

Readers can visit ZAM at her website, Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.

Be sure to come back later today for B.’s review of Home the Hard Way!!

    Hi I enjoyed reading your review and it made me want to read the book even more. I love that ZAM’s books are mostly about imperfect heroes that have to go through quite a journey before redemption and eventual happiness. I have sort of mentioned this before in another of the blog entries for this tour but as you mentioned roads and journeys in your review, may I mention that I really thought of Robert Frost’s poem ‘The Road Not Taken, especially with the books cover and the final few sentences:

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference.

    Thank you for a chance of winning a book from ZAM’s backlist and thank ZAM for such an interesting tour and this new mystery book – I hope there will be some more from Palladian?
