Happy Summer~ ! Take a look at my books on Kindle or a Nook~!
The RELAUNCHING of Talk of the Town and In The Mood !
These two books were two of my all time favorites to write. Talk of the Town was actually the first book I ever wrote, which ended up being the second book I published (life works like that sometimes) with Avon HarperCollins under my wonderful editor Lucia Macro. I loved my Avon years, and Lucia and I had a deep affinity for the quality of old movies and their characters. I was part of a terrific group of women who formed a critique group in my early days, and they really whipped Talk of the Town into shape-- it took a village! The real "Paradise" is a town I love named Lynden, just over the Canadian border from Washington State. Of course I took many liberties with the setting. The names of the shops are all from my childhood on Bainbridge Island! We had The Hen House, Esther's Fabrics, Yeackel's Shoes, The Lemon Tree, many of the shops and businesses listed in the book. And then of course- I love weddings and really could I have crammed any more into one book? If you've never read this book, it is full of humor and absurd comedic moments, and some very heartwarming connections that change everyone's lives for the better. I love that, don't you?
So here they are, back for round two for Kindle and Nook! Have a fun summer giggle for the cost of a short drip coffee at Starbucks! Cheers, Suzanne
