THE UGLY TREE

Considering Cane Kallevik's rocky start, her life has been normal under the watchful eye of Grandma Betty. When shes not running five miles at a crack, shes riding her bike around the rural farming town of Savage, Illinois and engaging in a secret warfare with her former best friend, Mikayla Atwood. The biggest thorn in her side is Jenny Ryanne Schaeffer, her employer, who Cane has nicknamed Jelly Roll. When Justice Price, Jelly Rolls gorgeous, older nephew rolls into town, Cane is convinced that their age difference is a minor inconvenience. After a disastrous tornado, Cane's house is destroyed, and Grandma Betty is in a coma. Out of necessity, Cane moves in with the Schaeffer family and spends the summer falling in love with Justice, keeping vigil at Grandma Bettys side, fighting with Jelly Roll, walking a fine line between love and hate with Mikayla, and discovering scandalous secrets about Mikaylas mother, Annette. Cane endures a summer of waiting, loving, and longing. In a dramatic conclusion her world literally goes up in flames, but instead of losing everything, she finds exactly what shes looking for in the most unexpected way.




CANE’S JUSTICE   



In this sequel to the award-winning book The Ugly Tree, Cane has always known that the handsome and sweet Justice Price was the one.

THE ROAD TO JUSTICE


Feisty and impatient marketing maven Cane Kallevik is desperate to mend her relationship with Justice Price, slip her engagement ring back on, and sprint to the altar. Justice’s feet aren’t just cold, though, they’re frozen. 
Still reeling from Cane’s summer fling with dangerously attractive bad boy Nikeo, Justice claims he needs time. But is it really time he wants, or their curvaceous and bubbly co-worker Susan, with her bottomless supply of adoration and baked goods... read more






"On the night that I was born, the circle of life sucker punched my family in the face. Grandma Betty stepped up to the plate, and out of her iron will to make lemonade out of lemons, she named me Cane, claiming it was because I was as sweet as sugar."


"I have learned that for me, hope is fickle; it can drag me down just as easily as it can pull me up by my bootstraps, so high that my feet don't even touch the ground."


"When I'm around him, I behave unscrupulously and irrationally. He provokes emotions in me that Justice never has. He unsettles me, challenges me, pushes me, and enrages me. He makes me question who I am and what I believe. He brings out things in me I didn't know were there and things I don't like to acknowledge that are."

Meet Tamara Lyon 

In April of 2000, Tamara Lyon left her position in the corporate world to raise her son and pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a published author. Three years later when her husband entered medical school, she started a successful cleaning business to support her family and continued to hone her writing skills.

Her 2009 debut novel, “Fixing Forever Broken”, won the prestigious IPPY Bronze Medal in the romance category. “The Ugly Tree”, released in 2010, was a finalist for several awards, including the prestigious Eric Hoffer Award. Fans adored “The Ugly Tree” and demanded more, and Lyon obliged. The sequel, “Cane’s Justice”, came out in 2013, and the final book, “The Road to Justice”, was released soon after. She’s currently working on a comedic romance titled, “Post-Traumatic Brazilian Wax Syndrome”.

An avid runner and fitness fanatic, Lyon rarely listens to music during workouts, instead using the time to hash out plots and characters. When she’s not exercising or writing, she tours the country as a motivational speaker, dabbles in interior design, and cheers for her son, a junior national champion cyclist. She makes her home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin with her husband, son, and counter surfing and adorable golden retriever, Macy.
