New excerpt from Saving Casey by Liza O'Connor!

I've been talking about the book Saving Casey by Liza O'Connor these last few days. Here's one more excerpt for your reading pleasure!

Any chance you’d be willing to go to a different doctor to get another treatment on your face?”
“I really like Dr. Grey.”
“I know, but we can’t take the chance. You’d visit a doctor in Montana after office hours.”
“Does he have the equivalent experience and skills as Dr. Grey? Because I already have nightmares where I’m blind and irreparably scarred.”
“He won’t touch your eyes. He’ll just work on the cheeks.”
“And if I’m scarred, causing little children to scream at the sight of me, will you still love me?” She expected him to flounder with his response because it required him to actually admit he loved her, something he’d refused to do. To her shock, he replied at once.
“No hesitation?”
“So explain why you’ll love me without hesitation if I’m hideously scarred, but won’t even kiss me when I’m just ghoulishly tattooed?”
“Simple. Dan wouldn’t mind if I’m the only man in the world who still thinks you’re beautiful. But as long as millions of better alternatives exist, Dan would never forgive me for stealing your future.”
She hated it when he nailed the truth. If she were really seventeen, she would agree a hundred percent. Sighing heavily, she muttered, “I’ll see the doctor.”
“He’s not going to leave you scarred, Cass.”
“I hope not, but if he does, I’m holding you to your word.”
“You have it.”
She smiled at the turn of this conversation. “So you think I’m beautiful?”
“Inside and out,” he replied. “We need to change the conversation now.”
“Why? I like this conversation.”

Curious yet? I'll add the blurb again, just in case you've missed it ;-)

Having been diagnosed with cancer, Cass Goldman decides to opt out of any futile medical care and end her life. While she has some thoughts on afterlife, she never expects to reincarnate into the body of a seventeen-year-old girl named Casey Davidson.

When she awakens in a hospital, Cass discovers two disturbing facts: One, she is now inside the body of a troubled teenager, and two, the former owner of this body committed suicide, but only Cass knows that. Everyone else believes Casey has survived, but suffered a complete memory loss. Cass has two choices: to take on Casey’s life and turn it around, or to confess the truth about her reincarnation and end up in a mental asylum. Given this second chance at life, Cass decides to take on the future life of Casey—the frightening ghoul-faced teen with short, black, spiky hair.

Every person around Cass has an ulterior motive and discovering the truth of Old Casey’s life is more complicated than the “new math” she is forced to learn in school. In addition, Cass has to contend with raging teenage hormones and the prior crimes of Old Casey, which she might not remember, but everyone else certainly does. However, her biggest frustration concerns her feelings for her father’s rugged security specialist who sees her only as a teenager and doesn’t want to explore the mutual attraction between them.

As determined as Cass is to turn this life around, Old Casey’s enemies are just as determined to end her life. She has no idea whom she can trust, but she knows she’ll never survive going it alone.

What's that? You're wondering where you can see more of Liza and where you can find the book? Right here:  Saving Casey by Liza O'Connor
