About the Book

Operation Find a Guy

Title: Operation Find a Guy
Roadtrip Romance #3
Amy Anguish
Scrivenings Press
Release Date:
June 13, 2023
Contemporary Christian Romance

Skye Jones has one goal for the summer—keep her father from taking away her convertible. That’s the only reason she’s agreed to work at her sister’s bridal shop in Boulder, Colorado. It will buy her some time to figure out if there’s a non-boring job out there. Why else would she have anything to do with weddings when she has no interest in marriage? 

Benjamin Smith can’t quite figure out how he ended up a groomsman in two different weddings over the summer, but with his sister and a cousin both getting married, he’s spending a lot of time at Happily Ever After events. Falling for a blonde with no dreams of settling down wasn’t in his five-year plan, but the more he sees Skye, the more he wants to figure her out. But all she sees him as is a boring attorney and her complete opposite. 

Romance was supposed to be for Skye’s friends. But Colorado might hold more than she knew she was looking for.

Author Interview

Welcome, Amy! Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and allowing my readers a chance to get to know you and your new book Operation Find A Guy

I like to start these interviews the same way, with something fun to break the ice. Can you share 5 random facts about you that we will not find in your bio? 

In no particular order:

• I LOVE fun socks. Polka dots, stripes, holidays, books, etc. They are my happy place when it’s sock season.
• I do not like coffee. I don’t mind the smell, but can’t handle the taste. I’m a tea-drinking girl from college on, so anytime my characters are drinking coffee, that’s based on my friends/family and not me. 😉
• I am a gardener. I love coaxing the dirt to allow plants to grow—both beautiful flower and yummy veggies. Any day when I have dirt under my nails is a good day.
• I also love old-fashioned things like crocheting and sewing and quilting. There’s just something amazing about wearing something you’ve made yourself.
• Sometimes, just for fun, I have my hairdresser add hot pink streaks to my hair. It’s just a few, and they’re “peekaboo” style, so not in your face. But it makes me ridiculously happy.

When did you first discover you had a passion for writing?

I have always loved stories. Always. And I’ve always made up little stories. But I don’t think I realized it was an option for a real profession until around eighth grade. My English teacher was a published author. And, all of a sudden, it hit me that if she could do something like that, so could I.


You’ve moved around a lot as both a child and an adult. Do you feel that living in so many different places and meeting so many new people helps you as a writer? 

I definitely feel it has helped me as a writer. For one thing, I have so many different places I can set my books. Ha! But I also can pull on past experiences, past people I’ve met, and the emotions and struggles I’ve personally grown through to enhance my characters and make them stronger and more believable.

If you had to describe your main character(s) in this story in just three words each, what would they be? 

This is so hard!

Skye: fun-loving, flighty, lost

Benjamin: grounded, quirky, motivated


Can you tell us a little bit more about Operation Find a Guy


This book was a lot of fun to write. I set it in Boulder, Colorado, where my family vacationed together back in 2015. I included a lot of the fun places we visited. But I also have such fun characters in this story. Quirky dates. Some surprising back story. And a whole lot of growing up and realizing things aren’t quite the way Skye thinks they are.



This is the third book in the series.  Will readers who have not yet read the previous books be able to enjoy this one as a stand-alone?


You can read it as a stand-alone. But be warned there are some spoilers for how things turn out for the other two books’ characters. Because this is the final book in the series, I wrapped everything up in an epilogue at the end, but there are also a few things woven through the story that sort of give away especially how the second book ends. That being said, I have had people read this story without reading the other two first, and they were okay with that and said they understood everything.


What was the most challenging part of bringing this story to life? The most rewarding?


This book is sort of my way of redeeming a character from the first book who wasn’t so loveable. When I first decided to write the first book in this series, I didn’t realize it was going to be a series. I’d never written a series before. But as things went on, I realized each of the friends from the first book needed her own story. So, how did I take this character who was sort of a brat in the first book and make her likeable enough that people could root for her in her own book? That was the hard part.

The most rewarding part is I think I accomplished it. My early readers have told me they absolutely loved this story. Excuse me while I do a little fist pump. LOL.


What do you hope readers will take away from the book? 


So many times, we go into situations in life thinking they will be one way, when in reality they can be completely different. Or not nearly as bad … or good … as we expect. Skye does this with her expectations for relationships, jobs, and even the state of Colorado. If you read this story, I hope you can grow with Skye as she realizes not everything is as black and white as she makes it out to be. And sometimes, that makes things better.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. Before you go, where can readers follow along to see what’s coming next?
