Tara Carr

Tara Carr writes standalone contemporary romances about whatever strikes her in the moment, and it's usually a song on her iPod. Her debut novel, "The Search Is Over," was inspired by the song with the same name. It's a second chance and friends-to-lovers, sweet and sexy story about deciding to give your first love a second chance.

Coming in March 2018 is "The Last Worthless Evening," a small town romance about moving on, inspired by one line in the song of the same name. Copies will be available at the Tucson Festival of Books before they are available anywhere else.

Find full descriptions and blurbs for both (and a third, "If You Only Knew," coming July 2018) on Goodreads:

Her alter ego has a Master's degree in History; loves to work, wander in and write about cemeteries; and teaches at the university.
