BLOG TOUR: The Trouble with Goodbye by Sarra Cannon

One night can change everything…

Two years ago, Leigh Anne Davis shocked everyone in tiny Fairhope, Georgia when she broke up with her wealthy boyfriend to attend an Ivy League university a thousand miles away. At school, she finds a happiness and independence she’s never known.
Until one terrifying night takes it all away from her.
With no place else to go, Leigh Anne heads home to reclaim her old life. A life she worked so hard to escape. On the outside, she seems like the same girl everyone has always known. But deep inside, she’s hiding a terrible secret.
That’s when she meets Knox Warner, a troubled newcomer to Fairhope. His eyes have the same haunted look she sees every day in the mirror, and when she’s near him, the rest of the world fades away. But being with Knox would mean disappointing everyone all over again. If she wants to save what’s left of her old life, she has no choice but to say goodbye to him forever.
Only, the trouble with goodbye is that sometimes it’s about courage and sometimes it’s about fear. And sometimes you’re too broken to know the difference until it’s too late.

Sarra Cannon grew up in a small town in Georgia where she learned that being popular always comes at a price. She is the author of the young adult paranormal Peachville High Demons series, which she first began self-publishing in October of 2010. Since the series began, Sarra has sold over 120,000 copies and recently signed a contract with Sea Lion Books to create a graphic novel adaptation of Beautiful Demons, the first book in the series.

Sarra lives in North Carolina with her amazing husband, her new baby boy, and her teeny tiny Pomeranian, Snickerdoodle.

The Trouble with Goodbye is a great story.  It has many different elements that keep you glued to the pages waiting to find out what is going to happen.
We start off knowing that Leigh Ann has had something horrible happen at college and that after suffering through it for a year she decides to come home for the summer.  Home....a place that she was ready to escape from not so long ago.  So, when she arrives back home, I was expecting a certain type of family to show up.  But, it wasn't like I imagined.  But as time went on, I could see that I would have been just like Leigh Ann; ready to escape!  I won't tell you the deets...this is something you need to read and know for yourself. Leigh Ann is home, she meets up with old friends and tries to ease herself back in to her old life.  Only thing is...she can't.
With the changes she has experienced as well as a chance meeting with the new intriguing guy in town, she doesn't fit in to her old life anymore.  
The Trouble with Goodbye shows us the struggle of a young woman coming to terms with who she is and what she wants to fight for in her life.  I was astonished at some of the things I read yet not surprised and overall I was rooting for Leigh Ann to come out of her shell and take her life by the reins. 
Now, as I mentioned above, Leigh Ann had a chance meeting with the "new guy" in town.  Yes, we get to meet a very hot, mysterious, passionate Knox.  You know right away from the first meeting he is a great guy.  He went above and beyond in that situation, but it is with the unfolding of who he is and his past that really brings you to truly care for him.  You can see how he and Leigh Ann are the perfect couple.
Yet, things come crashing down and with Leigh Ann trying to come to terms with who she is as well as the events that transpired at college, we find turmoil has set in.
Do these two people make it together?  Is there just too much getting in between them?
Well, I won't say...but The Trouble with Goodbye is definitely a book you will want to pick up.  I true coming of age story that keeps you captivated until the very end.
