Cover Reveal: Zoey & The Moment of Zen by Cat Lavoie

This is a very special cover reveal for me because not only do I think Cat Lavoie is an extremely talented writer, but I also love her as a person. Warm, generous, funny and kind, she has been a huge support to me and my writing. Her debut novel, Breaking the Rules, is an absolute favorite of mine, and I cannot wait to read Zoey & The Moment of Zen when it's published by Marching Ink in October.

Here is the fun, bright and adorable cover, designed by the amazing Scarlett Rugers. Doesn't that make you want to hop on a plane? While reading this book!

When coffee shop owner Zoey Everwood takes her obsession with ex-boyfriend Braden too far, everyone—except Zoey—is convinced a bit of fun in the sun at the Moment of Zen Wellness Resort will help her get over him once and for all.

But Zoey's relaxing vacation turns out to be anything but peaceful when she meets Shane Lawson, a resort guest who bears a striking resemblance to Braden. And things get even more complicated when the resort's owner starts spilling secrets about Zoey’s aunt Nessa, the woman who raised her. Add a snarky Wellness Coordinator and Nate Holmes—Shane's grumpy friend—to the mix, and you've got the recipe for a perfect tropical storm.

When Zoey comes back home with a new husband instead of tacky souvenirs, she must convince everyone she hasn't completely lost her mind. As Zoey and Shane struggle to keep the magic alive outside the resort, Zoey discovers that she isn't the only one having trouble letting go of the past. And when Nate drops a bombshell that changes everything, Zoey must decide if the old saying is true—what happens at the Moment of Zen stays at the Moment of Zen.


Cat Lavoie lives in Montreal, Canada with her tempestuous cat, Abbie. Her debut novel, Breaking the Rules, was published in August 2012 by Marching Ink. If Cat isn't reading or writing, she's most likely watching too much TV or daydreaming about her next trip to London.
