The Smallest Part, a contemporary friends-to-lovers romance is now live! 


“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” – Unknown

It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie.
“Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?”

If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too.
So Mercedes lied.
And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate.
She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down.

This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.

If you’re a fan of Amy Harmon, be excited…be very very excited because she has done it again. She’s created such a beautiful breathtaking story with such amazing characters that will forever live in your heart. If you are new to Amy Harmon….grab some coffee/tea, a snack, and come sit next to me. WE NEED TO TALK You are about to embark on a novel that will keep you captivated from start to finish. Amy Harmon writes novels that make us believe in a better world. Novels that give us hope in humanity, and reminds us that kindness, love, and friendship matter.

“They had all been inseparable once. Shared fear. Shared uncertainty. Shared childhood. Whatever it was, it had cemented them.”

The Smallest Part begins when the trio, Cora, Mercedes, and Noah meet. Three children that become fast best friends. Forced to mature quickly because of their trials and tribulations, our trio form a solid bond that carries them long into their adulthood. We get glimpses into that past while watching the present unfold. Which keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. When the unimaginable happens we have to sit back and watch with broken hearts, as the characters we instantly fell in love with, struggle to put their lives back together as best they can. This trio will be engraved in your heart. The way they love and protect each other. The funny banter they have. They are everything you look for in real life and in our favorite novels we read again and again.

A warning to the reader…
You don’t know what’s going to happen. Of course, the author is going to deliver a perfectly beautiful romance
(I mean come on! It’s Amy Harmon!)
But at 20% I gasped
There are twists you won’t see coming and hurdles to overcome before you can get to that perfect blissfull exhale that comes with the happily ever after. This book does deal with a very serious issue. An issue that plagues so many people all over the world. Without spoiling anything the only thing I will say is that the author delivers a powerful message about depression and how it affects the ones you love. It’s tragic, gripping and eye-opening.


Once again the author has taken my breath away with her amazing characters and original breathtaking story. Her books always have a beautiful romance. But this story also had so much PASSION that isn’t typical of an Amy Harmon novel.
(Like omg I think steam was coming off my kindle!! It was epic and so unexpected!!)
Not that her other books are ever missing anything at all. But the raw passion she delivers in this story so perfectly placed to really grasp the beauty and power of love these two people have. I think Amy pulled it off flawlessly. It was beautifully romantic and I felt their all-consuming love for each other gripping my heart right from the pages.

This book is beautiful, it’s real, it’s heartbreaking, and it’s an absolute must-read. This book only serves to confirm why she is not only a favorite author of mine but also an instant click!!
