Bye For Now: Gripping, Intense Romance Novel Proves Love’s Timeless Bonds; as Tragedy & the Past Collide.

Masterfully crafted by Cindy Lynch, ‘Bye For Now: Gramp’s Camp’ spans from the protagonist’s past to her ever-tumultuous present, as a harrowing tragedy playing out in a town close to her heart brings memories of the past flooding back. The journey through love hasn’t been easy for Callista Lamply but – as readers are about to find out – love itself has the ability to confront its “victims” decades after those first sparks flew.

Chesterfield, MO – While nobody will deny the romance genre’s timeless popularity, both readers and critics are currently crying out for wholly-unique new narratives that don’t succumb to recycling of the ‘same-old’ narratives. Thankfully, author Cindy Lynch is stepping up to the plate with gusto, twisting an intense and intricate series of romances with many modern-day issues close to readers’ own hearts.

It all plays out in ‘Bye For Now: Gramp’s Camp’, volume one of what promises to be a smash-hit new series.


Callista Lamply sits watching television 1,300 miles away from her hometown. In an instant, she recognizes the town in which a horrific tragedy is taking place. While images unfold, Callie finds herself anxiously waiting to hear new details of those involved. Feeling frightened and alone, wishing she could turn back time when life was simple, her childhood memories begin to flood her consciousness.

Remembering in detail the summer of 1982, Callie recalls meeting a blond-haired, blue-eyed, handsome boy named Wyatt who, as luck would have it, lived several doors down from her grandfather’s camp. Callie and Wyatt begin a romance that blossoms from summer to summer, bringing them closer than Callie had ever imagined. If only her brother Jimmy could let go of his suspicions about Wyatt. Just because he’s the kid brother of Jimmy’s arch nemesis doesn’t make him a bad guy. Does it?

The seasons change, and as Callie enters college she meets Charlie-the vivacious, devilishly handsome neighbor who quickly becomes an important part of her life. But is it more than that? Are her summers with Wyatt about to end?

With her love life in the balance, Callie is determined to make a decision, but which way should she turn? Will Wyatt make promises he can’t keep? Is there more to Charlie than fun and games? Is it worth the risk or is it time to say goodbye?

“I wanted to write something fresh, new yet draw from personal experience pertinent to topics in today’s news,” explains Lynch. “This is an uninhibited look at how love has the ability to take hold of it’s ‘victims’ by the throat, decades after they thought a certain romantic affair ended, and change their lives long into the future.”

Continuing, “Readers will recognize a piece of themselves in Callista and, because I tied the narrative in with many issues in the news, it’s going to feel extremely close to home.”

With the volume’s demand expected to increase, interested readers are urged to secure their copies without delay.

About the Author:

Cindy Lynch lived in many states growing up, but she still considers Newtown, Connecticut home. Living in Sandy Hook throughout her high school and college years brought her many great memories; many of which occurred up at “Gramp’s Camp.” She always wanted to write a fictionalized memoir of her time on the lake, but never found the time. The Sandy Hook shootings both devastated and resonated with Cindy in a way she couldn’t ignore, and the time to bring forward the stored memories of her youth felt more important than ever. These images of her past were woven into a fictional story that became the fabric for “Bye For Now.”

After meeting her husband, John, at Central Connecticut State University they moved to Missouri to be closer to Cindy’s family. They live in Chesterfield, Missouri with their three growing boys, Jack, Ian and Michael. When she’s not writing, editing or otherwise engaged in writing activities she’s coming up with plot line and character development while running, biking, swimming and spending time with her family.
