More Than a Heartthrob by Kari Trumbo
This month’s release: More Than a Heartthrob by Kari Trumbo
Whoever said beauty is only skin deep lied. Beauty begins from within.
Jazzy is comfortable in her own skin, but the world cringes at it. Her personal armor since her teen years, makeup hides the scars that make anyone who sees them wince. The true test of any friend is: will they accept her without it?
Chris races to Hooper Island to escape a life-altering situation. The only person he knows and can trust there is a woman he met once. It wasn’t a good meeting. Lost and lonely after being the center of attention in Hollywood, he won’t risk losing the one friend he has.
Befriending Chris poses a risk Jazzy is loath to take. If anyone will reject her for her scars, it’ll be a guy whose life is focused on beauty. But as she helps him work through his own problems and his struggles with faith, will she gather the courage to pluck the plank from her own eye?
Once alone and vulnerable, will Jazzy and Chris rely on one another? Or will the force of their polar opposite lives push them apart—for good.
More Than a Heartthrob continues the Hooper Island stories of the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

For Kari’s party, we’re talking makeup tips and our favorite tricks.
It’s time to get dolled up!
Now, don’t let this scare you. I love a good tip when it comes to makeup. I’m fairly hopeless at doing my own makeup, so any help is greatly appreciated. The first few times I used makeup, it was a total failure. My sister does hers with an expert hand.
Mine. Eh, not so much.
The color was wrong, and it was so thick I could feel it every time I moved.
I feel like makeup has evolved since then, as the foundations I use don’t bother me quite as much, but one thing I was taught was to use a sponge and blot the foundation instead of smearing it. You paint stripes on walls, not on faces. Unless you’re a professional face painter and that’s what you do.
It works for me and helps me feel like it’s not as obvious that I’m wearing makeup.
