I am so excited to be participating in this blog tour for Jessica Pennington’s debut novel, “Love Songs & Other Lies”! Keep reading to see an excerpt from the novel, find out more about Jessica, as well as join the exclusive blog tour giveaway where you can win a signed hardcover copy of the book and some awesome swag!
It’s summer romance and second chances, the songs that stay in your head, and the boy you’ll never forget.
Two years after rock-song-worthy heartbreak, Virginia Miller is looking forward to a fun, carefree summer. Her friends just landed a spot on a battling bands reality show, and Vee is joining them for her dream internship on tour. Three months with future rockstars seems like an epic summer plan. Until she learns she’ll also be sharing the bus with Cam. Her first love, and her first heartbreak. Now Vee has more than just cameras to dodge, and Cam’s determination to win her forgiveness is causing TMZ-worthy problems for both of them. With cameras rolling, she’ll have to decide if her favorite breakup anthem deserves a new ending. And if she’s brave enough to expose her own secrets to keep Cam’s under wraps.
Cam? Huh. Interesting. Everyone has always called me Cameron. All three syllables, every time. My mom used to say that if she wanted people to call me Cam, she would have named me that.
Am I a “Cam” now? I guess I can roll with it. “What’s the VA stand for?” Friends can ask that sort of thing. We’re friends now, right? You already “Cam”-ed me, after all.
“Like the state.”
“The nineties song,” Anders says smiling. “‘Meet Virginia’?”
I shake my head. I don’t know it.
Anders starts humming and Logan sings, “Meet Virginia, I can’t wait to meet Virginia-”
She rolls her eyes. “No one calls me that, though. Just Vee.”

About the Author:
Jessica Pennington is no stranger to the combination of love and drama. She’s a wedding planner, after all. A writer since the age of ten—when she sought publication for her poem about a tree—Jessica likes the challenge of finding the humor in a sad situation or highlighting the awkwardness in a romantic one. She lives in a Michigan beach town suspiciously similar to the one in her books, where she’s currently finishing her second novel, WHEN SUMMER ENDS, out April 2019.
Thanks so much for checking out my stop on the blog tour today! Be sure to follow along as the tour continues and pick up your copy of Love Songs & Other Lies out on April 24th!
