Kismet Book Touring & Harlequin TEEN Promo Blitz: Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott

by Elizabeth Scott
Release Date: 01/28/14
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Emma would give anything to talk to her mother one last time. Tell her about her slipping grades, her anger with her stepfather, and the boy with the bad reputation who might be the only one Emma can be herself with.

But Emma can’t tell her mother anything. Because her mother is brain-dead and being kept alive by machines for the baby growing inside her.

Meeting bad-boy Caleb Harrison wouldn’t have interested Old Emma. But New Emma—the one who exists in a fog of grief, who no longer cares about school, whose only social outlet is her best friend Olivia—New Emma is startled by the connection she and Caleb forge. Feeling her own heart beat again wakes Emma from the grief that has grayed her existence. Is there hope for life after death—and maybe, for love?

I love Elizabeth Scott and the title and cover both make my heart quicken. While the blurb of Heartbeat makes it sound like a more intense read than I'd expect it to be, Scott's characters are usually so well-fleshed out that it's bound to be worth it! :) Can't wait to read this one!


“An intense examination of a family coping with grief, this absorbing character study easily keeps pages turning.”

— Kirkus on Heartbeat

ELIZABETH SCOTT grew up in a town so small it didn’t even have a post office, though it did boast an impressive cattle population. She’s sold hardware and panty hose and had a memorable three-day stint in the dot-com industry, where she learned that she really didn’t want a career burning CDs. She lives just outside Washington, D.C., with her husband, and firmly believes you can never own too many books


  1. On my to-read list too. Can't wait!

  2. This caught my eye as well, I'm pretty sure it's on Netgalley you should check it out :)

    1. Yeah, got it from NG a while back. Halfway through it, it's good so far :D

  3. Ooh sounds interesting. I think it would be cool to have more of the mom's situation included instead of a romance, which is where the summary has me guessing the book will go.

    1. It doesn't ignore the mom's situation which is yes, good because it's a pretty intense situation :(


HI. Thanks for reading! Feel free to comment. :)
