Robin wanted to win The Holdout, a
cutthroat reality TV show, so she gave it
her all, challenge after challenge. Then she
fell for Grant, with his irresistible eyes and
heartbreaking life story.

But Grant was only using Robin as they
competed for a million dollars.  Once home,
Robin wants to hide from the humiliation as
episodes of
The Holdout are aired, and she
worries her family was right all along; she’s
not a survivor.

Or maybe she’ll have the last laugh

Besides, Robin now has jury duty. And as
she forges ahead, confronting her demons
about bravery, justice, and romance, Robin
will come to decide which is more
important: the courage to stand alone, or
the strength to love again.
Laurel Osterkamp’s award winning novels have been hailed as funny, intelligent, snarky and
poignant. She is the author of four novels and two novellas, including the
November Surprise
series, which, like
The Holdout, features the Bricker family. Laurel was recently on a federal
jury, and she loves watching Survivor.
The Holdout is a hit!
