Have you ever been to Vegas? Have you walked along The Strip and felt the
excitement? Vegas has its own unique sound. When you go in the casinos there's a
hum, a ringing of all the slot machines and games, for those that have been you
know what I mean. But there's more to Vegas than just gambling, there's the
shows, the food, the sightseeing, golf, shopping, and more. It's almost an
assault on your senses and you really can't do it all in one trip. I've been
three times, and each time realize just how much I've missed, which, means I
only have to go back and see more!
And flying in a night, well it's breathtaking to see the lights of The Strip
spread out before you from the air. I always try and spot the hotels, like the
Luxor with its distinctive shape and beacon of light that shoots into the sky.
All the hotels have their own unique feature. Like Paris, with a replica of the
Eiffel Tower on the exterior and the interior. The volcano at The Mirage hotel
that belches out 'lava' during the show. The gondola ride along the canal inside
the Venetian, which is just so beautiful and fabulous how they brought the
outside inside. There really is something to see whichever way you turn. One
particular feature of Vegas has a role in my upcoming book that is set in Las Vegas!
My new series Girls
Weekend Away kicks off the adventures of four friends in Vegas. The
first of four books – WHAT
HAPPENS IN VEGAS – releases on July 24. It's a fun story about four
girlfriends that takeoff for weekend away together. With the full intention to
have excitement and reconnect after not seeing each other for a while. And of
course, for some shenanigans.
This was such a great book, and series, to write. Getting to know the four women
Bonni, Celia, Ava, and Fredi, was so much fun. They couldn't be more different,
and their differences and complexities all complement each other in a wonderful way.
This story is about Bonni, a tough as nails detective that needs some downtime
with her besties. Things happen, plans go awry, and a temptation is dropped in
front of her in the form of Quinn, a professional poker player. She has
decisions to make, and takes her friends on a ride of fun, luxury and surprises.
I'd like to share a bit about Bonni's story with you. Here's a little taste of
Female voices and happy squeals rose above the sounds of the casino. Bonni
bolted to her feet, knowing it had to be her crew. Her three friends exploded up
the steps into the circular Coliseum bar, and Bonni's face split with a wide
'God! I can't believe we're all finally together again!' Fredi tossed her
handbag on to a chair.
Celia opened her arms and Bonni fell into her hug.
'Come on, girls, I need hugs. Hugs, hugs, hugs – it's been way too long.'
Bonni heard the emotion in Celia's voice and it struck a chord deep inside
her. She had to fight back the gush of sentimentality that came rushing.
'Oh, it has been soooo long!' Ava cried. She and Fredi smooshed into the
