My next newsletter’s in the works, and in addition to giving away a signed, print copy of You May Kiss the Bride, I want to include another book. But which one? I’d love to hear your suggestion(s) over on my Facebook page. Is there a title on your to-read list you’ve been hankering after? Thank you for your input!

My newsletter’s going out soon, and along with tidbits of this and that, I’m giving away a signed print copy of You May Kiss the Bride as well as this pretty charm necklace (which has a special meaning when you read Chapter 5) and a couple of these gorgeous postcards. The rumpled bedsheet, however, isn’t included. ;)
Join Julia Quinn, Laura Lee Guhkre and me as together we take over the Avon Romance Facebook page this coming Monday, April 3rd, from 7 to 9 pm Eastern time. Bring your questions! I’ll be giving away a print copy of You May Kiss the Bride along with a special gift, too. Hope to see you there!

“Difficult to please,” says Merriam-Webster; also “having complex nutritional requirements.” It’s a wonderfully accurate description of my hero’s grandmother in You May Kiss the Bride.
Here’s a snippet from Chapter 5, in which my heroine discovers just how fastidious her hostess is.
Livia stared dismally at her plate. On it was a mashed turnip cake, three limp mushrooms over which had been spooned a lumpy gray sauce, and half a raw artichoke bottom. Not only did Mrs. Penhallow follow a most peculiar culinary regimen, so were she and Miss Cott forced to endure it as well. It was all because of that repulsive Dr. Wendeburgen, one of Bath’s most eminent physicians and a particular favorite of Mrs. Penhallow. No meat, no fish, no poultry, no milk, no cream, no butter, no eggs, no bread, declared Dr. Wendeburgen. Above all, no desserts! What could be more injurious to the human alimentary tract?
