If the Broom Fits by Sarah Sutton Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Halloween really is the worst.
Blaire’s got to be the only person on the planet who hates Halloween. At least the only person in her small town, which practically worships the holiday. Ugh. And it doesn’t help that her super-hot ex-boyfriend, Lucas, is determined to convince her otherwise by making her take part in “festive activities.” Apparently carving pumpkins and watching scary movies is going to magically change her mind about the holiday? Yeah, right.
But Blaire has never told anyone the truth of why she hates Halloween or the truth about why she broke up with Lucas. She’s definitely never told anyone about how much she second-guesses that decision. Being around him is so much harder than she thought, especially when it looks like he's starting to move on.
And when she gets a letter in the mail from someone who broke her heart, can Blaire overcome the negativity drowning her? Or will her bitterness and secrets push everyone she loves away?
Something snapped behind me, sounding exactly like the breaking of a bone. When I whirled around, a scream already lodging in my throat, I saw it wasn’t a scarecrow.
It was Lucas, his black sneaker on top of a turned-over cornstalk. He froze. “Hey.”
“Why are you following me?” I demanded, pulling my arms closer around myself. “Did Donnie send you?”
“More or less. We were both worried about you getting—”
“I’m not going to get eaten by a scarecrow!” I cut him off so loudly that my voice echoed.
Lucas’s eyes widened. “I was going to say getting lost, but all right.”

IF THE BROOM FITS was born from this desperate desire to read a Halloween Romance. There are some out there, but not nearly as many as there are in the Christmas Romance niche. I came up with my title before much of anything else, which was a huge first for me. But I think it’s because the title fits so stinking well!
Writing a bitter character was also new for me—how do you make a character with so much baggage likeable? That was my biggest hardship. Blaire’s been through so many rough spots, and she has to finally make a decision: will she let her past stand in the way of her future? Will she let her bitter emotions take control? That was an interesting battle to right, and a lot heavier than my previous books!
There are so many scenes in IF THE BROOM FITS that are awesome, in my opinion, but I so love the last chapter before the epilogue. I love seeing everything come to a head, and see it wrap up. It was a big challenge to get this story finished in such a small word count—I’m used to doing double this amount—but I just love how that chapter is and how it ends. Very sweet, in my opinion!
