 Congratulations to former Deb Colleen Oakley on the publication of her new novel CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH! Kirkus Reviews raves: “Oakley masterfully creates a high-stakes story that still feels solidly real. All of her characters are well-rounded and charming, especially Jubilee. Readers will cheer each time she takes a risk and delight in her triumphs. A romantic, sweet story about taking chances and living life fully.” Tune in next Saturday for our interview with Colleen!
