Award-Winning Author

Robin wanted to win The Holdout, a cutthroat reality TV show, so she gave it her all, challenge after challenge. Then she fell for Grant, with his irresistible eyes and heartbreaking life story.

But Grant was only using Robin as they competed for a million dollars. Once home, Robin wants to hide from the humiliation as episodes of The Holdout are aired, and she worries her family was right all along, she’s not a survivor.

Yet she could surprise everyone, and have the last laugh.

Besides, Robin now has jury duty. And as she forges ahead, confronting her demons about bravery, justice, and romance, Robin will come to decide which is more important, the courage to stand alone, or the strength to love again.

Laurel Osterkamp’s award winning novels have been hailed as funny, intelligent, snarky and poignant. She is the author of four novels and two novellas, including the November Surprise series, which, like The Holdout, features the Bricker family. Laurel was recently on a federal jury, and she loves watching Survivor.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Written in a breezy style, Laurel Osterkamp’s “The Holdout” juggles two parallel stories of an intelligent young woman struggling to get her life on track. Well-written and filled with interesting characters and situations — definitely recommended.


This book was very interesting. The author craftily placed a lot of interesting scenes that kept me on my toes. Excellent book!


The characters are compelling and complex, but believable. I quickly found myself rooting for Robin and drawn into the action. The Holdout is a great read. I highly recommend it.


I can’t say enough how great this book was! I was impressed from the very start with how well-written the story was and how perfectly the author pieced together the seemingly disparate puzzle of the main character’s life.


The Holdout was a well-written entertaining piece of delicious chick-lit that’s extremely enjoyable and fun. Laurel Osterkamp has done a fantastic job crafting a wonderful, entertaining book. I can’t wait to read more from her!

About The Author

I love writing because I get very attached to my characters. Lucy debuted in Campaign Promises, a free novella that I released to thank all my awesome readers. Then Lucy’s story continued with November Surprise and Blue State. More recently there’s The Holdout, also featuring Lucy, but the main character is her cousin Robin, and it’s about love, justice, and reality TV. And you can find both Lucy and Robin in my newest book, American Angst.

I’m on Twitter but I don’t tweet super often. A better idea is to follow my blog,, or Lucy’s blog,, where you’ll read about Lucy’s career, marriage, and politics.

I teach in Minneapolis, MN, where I enjoy my boot collection, spending time with my husband and two chatty children, and finding time to write. My other novels are both award winning – Following My Toes and Starring in the Movie of My Life. Visit me at

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Laurel Osterkamp and ENT appreciate it.
