We usually think of Valentine as a day for chocolate and
lovers. But in the middle of winter it may be more
appropriate to show our love through comfort foods. What
better way to cuddle up on a snowy winter day than with
someone you love, a steaming bowl of soup, and an
entertaining book. Ann DeFee is giving away two Harry and
David's soup mixes–Pasta Fagioli and Chicken Noodle. In
addition, you can win an autographed copy of In A
It takes a heavenly wink
and a couple of wannabe angels desperate to win their wings
for Mary Louise "Pickles" Carson and Cam Hollinwell to find
true love. A Las Vegas teacher with a proclivity for all
things vintage, Pickles' dream is to have a baby.
Considering she thinks men are pond scum, and her sex life
is a big fat zero, that aspiration seems highly unlikely.
Cam is a washed up journalist whose only goal in life is to
return to mainstream reporting. This conundrum will
obviously require a miracle.
When neophyte angels, Coco Dombroski and Ace Rodriguez,
discover they have to earn their wings they come up with a
idea that's translated by the Powers That Be into a
scientific oddity called parthenogenesis– conception
without the benefit of a male found in plants and lower
Pickles is playing video poker when the angels bowl her
over with the news she's pregnant. Impossible! No sloppy
French kiss, no sex, no baby–especially not a progeny with
Cam's journalistic career tanked as the result of a false
date rape charge, and now he's reporting on Elvis sightings
for a national tabloid. He agrees to publicize the angel's
miracle only if they'll help him resurrect his career. But
life becomes more complicated when Pickles witnesses
a "hit" and Cam's job is expanded into being her bodyguard.
Our hero and heroine find themselves in a world of romance,
murder, mayhem and all things Elvis. Falling in love is a
life changing event, but throw in an inept villain and a
cast of quirky characters– headlined by female impersonator
Merry Chino Cherry and a hunky devil–then set the story in
a Vegas tourists rarely see, and you have all the elements
of a rollicking good time.
