Blog Tour: A Bandit's Broken Heart by Michelle McLean

Fish Out of Water

I’ve lived in Pennsylvania for several years now, a mere three hours from New York City. And until recently, I’d never been to visit the Big Apple. Never really had a desire to, to be honest. Oh, I like to say I like big cities…all the culture and things to do. And it’s true to a degree. It would be fun to have all those museums and stores and theaters at my fingertips. But deep down, I’m really just a small town girl. It wasn’t really that the big city scared me. It just didn’t sound fun.

But a few weeks ago, my step-daughter came to visit and she wanted to go to New York City. I really didn’t have a good excuse not to go. So I took a deep breath and headed into the big unknown.

And you know what…I had a blast :) Oh sure, I definitely stuck out like a tourist. The crowds were a bit claustrophobic at times (though we went on a good day and the crowds were minimal). I was a fish out of water to be sure.

But, I think I did pretty well. I even managed to ride the subway a few times! Luckily the first time we were accompanied by a good friend and seasoned New Yorker (who showed us a few tricks to visiting the city on a budget and introduced to the Metro). But even after she went home, we did pretty well on our own :) In the end, I’m glad I went. And I’m definitely more confident about going again.

Brynne, the main character in my new release, A Bandit’s Broken Heart, has her own fish out of water experience. Trying for a new start, she and her daughter move away from their tiny Californian town to bustling Boston. Things don’t quite go as she planned. Especially when she meets a handsome doctor who gets under her skin :) Check it out to see how she finally finds her place in the world…and who she finds it with. :)
