Yesterday was the cover reveal for my second novel, Leaving Everest, which will release three weeks from now on February 19, 2018. The reveal was tile-by-tile style over on Entangled Publishing’s Instagram account and there was a guessing game about the book’s setting that went along with it.
Here’s what it looked like when all nine tiles were in place:
Now that you know what the book looks like and where it is set, it’s probably time to discuss what the book is about! Here’s the description for the book’s back cover.
Twenty-year-old Emily Winslowe has had an adventurous upbringing. Daughter of a Himalayan mountain guide, she has climbed Mount Everest and other peaks most Americans only dream of. But for all her mountaineering prowess, she’s lacking some key experiences. Namely, guys. Especially one guy in particular—Luke Norgay, her childhood best friend who she hasn’t seen since he left for college in the United States two years ago.
Luke unexpectedly reappears as a guide just in time for the Everest climbing season. He’s even more handsome than she remembers, and that something that had been building between them during their last season together is back in front of them, bigger than ever.
The problem is, there’s a detail about Emily’s past that Luke doesn’t know. It’s the reason she ended up in the Himalayas in the first place…and the reason she must make it to the summit of Mount Everest this year. It’s also the reason she would never consider following him back to Washington after the climbing season ends.
But first, they’ll have to survive the mountain.
“Between the adventure, superb writing, and the heart-warming romance, I fell hard. A definite must read!” – Rebecca Yarros, author of The Renegades series
“Leaving Everest is exciting, suspenseful, poignant, and oh-so-romantic. Megan Westfield’s beautiful writing brings Everest to life so vividly that I could feel the frost on my skin as I was reading. You don’t want to miss this one!” – Beth Anne Miller, author of A Star to Steer Her By
The book’s Goodreads page and pre-order links will be going up within the coming week and I’ll share those here on my website as soon as I have them.
Until then, I’ll leave you with a book aesthetic I made for Leaving Everest that gives a general feel for the setting, relationships, and emotions of the book!
