Today is the International Potluck Blogfest hosted by Lexa Cain, Medeia Sharif and I. The goal of the International Potluck Blogfest is to promote diverse books, and we are all sharing a diverse book and a recipe. I'm promoting my new book Finding Hope which will be available September 1. The blurb is below.
When insecure eighteen-year-old Kailee Hill gets caught tagging Iraq war refugee, Abrahem Yohanna's garage, she's not expecting him to act as her designated driver, hold her hair back when she pukes, or offer to be a shoulder to cry on. But she's failing chemistry and her life is falling apart, so she uses the number Abe leaves her and finds herself with a new tutor.
The two quickly find themselves falling hard for each other. Kailee attacks a local grunt when he calls Abe a "sand nigger" and fights with her veteran brother to be with him. When she learns Abe hasn't told his family about her, she's heartbroken and the couple risks losing everything they've worked to build. To make matters worse, Kailee's previous acts make her the prime suspect in a serious crime. With Kailee behind bars and doubting his feelings for her, Abe must find a way to rescue the girl he loves and win back her affection . And to do that he’ll have to catch a crook…
And Abe and I are sharing Samoon and honey.
Samoon and honey is a flat bread served warm with honey. While Iraq doesn't have distinct breakfast food the way the U.S. does, this is a dish many people eat for breakfast. And it's something Abe loves.
