Book Spotlight and a Giveaway! Stay by Allie Larkin


Stay by Allie Larkin
Paperback, 320 pages
Published July 26th 2011 by Plume

Girl meets dog in this effervescent "feel-good debut" (People) by the author of Why Can't I Be You

Savannah "Van" Leone has been in love with Peter Clarke since their first day of college. Six years later, Peter is marrying Van's best friend, Janie. Loyal to a fault, Van dons her pumpkin-orange, maid-of- honor gown and stands up for the couple, struggling to hide her true feelings even when she couldn't be more conspicuous.

After the wedding, nursing her broken heart with a Rin Tin Tin marathon plus a vodka chaser, Van accidentally orders a German Shepherd puppy over the Internet. When "Joe" turns out to be a hundred-pound beast who only responds to commands in Slovak, Van is at the end of her rope-until she realizes that sometimes life needs to get more complicated before it can get better.

About the author

Allie Larkin is the internationally bestselling author of the novel Stay, and Why Can’t I Be You (2013). She has never ordered a dog off the internet or assumed a new identity to attend a high school reunion. When Allie writes, she wears an oversized circa 1980’s acrylic sweater that is a crime against fashion and good taste in general. She loves Boston. The band, not the city. But the city is great too.

Allie lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, Jeremy, their German Shepherd, Stella, and Stella's stuffed monster, Murray.
