Book Tour: Love Like The Movies - Victoria Van Tiem - Q&A

In this irresistible romantic romp, movie fanatic Kensington Shaw is thrown into love—Hollywood-style—when her gorgeous ex presents a series of big screen challenges to win back her heart.

What girl wouldn’t want to experience the Pretty Woman shopping scene? It’s number two on the list. Or, try the lift from Dirty Dancing? It’s number five. One list, ten romantic movie moments, and a handful of shenanigans later, Kenzi has to wonder…should she marry the man her family loves, or risk everything for a love like the movies?

Kenzi Shaw knows the plot of her life down to the last line - the career she's building as an up-and-coming marketing exec, the gorgeous fiancé (Bradley) she'll marry in a fairytale wedding, the children they'll raise in her dream home. But when heart-breaking ex Shane comes back into her life, life starts going off the script . . .

Shane tries to win Kenzi over by re-enacting all the rom-com movies they used to watch together - Sleepless in Seattle, Bridget Jones's Diary, Pretty Woman and Dirty Dancing to name a few. He's just a guy, standing in front of a girl, asking her to trust him again. But has he really changed? Not only is her head in a spin over Shane, but now her job is on the line. And with her perfect sister-in-law showing up every tiny thing Kenzi does wrong, she feels like she's permanently in the corner.

Should she risk her sensible life for the chance of a Happy Ever After? One thing's certain, when Shane meets Kenzi (again), she's suddenly not so sure who her leading man is . . .

Perfect for fans of From Notting Hill with Love . . . Actually and You Had Me at Hello. Grab some popcorn, hit the sofa and enjoy this feel-good and very funny novel.

Victoria Van Tiem is the author of LOVE LIKE THE MOVIES. She’s also an artist, black belt, mom of two, wife of one, and resident caretaker of her family zoo—including their beloved, pot-bellied pig, Pobby. Repped by Jenny Bent of The Bent Agency.

Today I have the pleasure to welcome Victoria to M's Bookshelf for a fun little chat!
Welcome, Victoria!

Can you tell us a little about LOVE LIKE THE MOVIES, the main characters and what it's about?

LOVE LIKE THE MOVIES is a fun, romantic romp about living on purpose to our true authentic selves. Kensington is almost thirty, right between the family she wants for herself and the one she’s out grown. Often the vision we have for ourselves is very different than the one our family has crafted for us, and if were not careful, their vision can hold us back and hold us hostage. Love Like The Movies explores this concept through Kensington’s journey.
Shane is Kenzi’s first love, first heartbreak, first everything. He’s *that* guy, the one who always got her at the most basic level. The movies in the LOVE LIKE THE MOVIES list are woven around their story.
Do you have any writing rituals?
Candy. There must be candy within reach. I have a terrible sweet tooth.
Some short fun facts:
Fav. colour? Oh, in general sea foam or ocean blue, but it always depends on where it's applied.
Paperback or Ebook? eBook first, but when I love a book I have to own the paperback.
Which movie genre would you watch on a date? Rom-Com of course!
Tea or coffee? I'm a coffee girl.
Something we don't know about you: I have a pot-bellied pig named Pobby. He started out at 15 lbs and now, fully grown is about 150. He lives outside in his own private barn.
Is there anything you can share about future projects? I do have another Romantic Comedy in the works. It’s a modern retelling of a 1960’s Rom-Com, only with higher stakes, hotter characters, and more confusion. In fact, it’s a truck-load of crazy. But, because at the very heart of this story are real characters and connections, you’re happy to go along for the ride. 
I'm very much looking forward to that! Thank you so much for stopping by, Victoria!

Open INT!
