Talented artist, Sheri Riddle, visits her brother Lance in a
small town where she
finds her next project. Sheri devotes herself to her side
venture of finding
broken people, their hidden potential, and helping them find
happiness again. With her sights set on the reclusive and
McQueen, she makes a pact with the man who looks more like a
famous author to stay in his farmhouse for the sake of her
First impression of the man is of being old and nasty, looks
Radcliff will show this abrasive young woman just how things
will be done
in his house of hoarding; bring it on! He is failing thus
far at breaching his
writer's block and he really doesn't need this little bit of
fluff of a stubborn
woman to interfere. The problem is, this hermit hadn't
expected Sheri to do
her own controlling. This personality renovator doesn't
give up, giving more
than she takes. Locking horns with this bull-headed woman
gives this anti-
social man a new lease on life and the will to write again.
A bond forms as
secrets unfurl and outlooks begin to change on both sides.
WHILE YOU WERE WRITING is the second book in the Watkin's
Pond series. I have not had the
pleasure of indulging in any of Virginia Nelson's creations
before, but became
completely engrossed in this one. My intent is certainly to
go back and read
the first of this series. I found the story very well
written and definitely kept
my interest throughout.
WHILE YOU WERE WRITING is a creative piece of writing that
will grab you and
keep you entranced to the very end. This is a very original
piece of work that
everyone would enjoy. I am impressed by this Nelson's
writing skills which give
the reader just what they need for entertainment.
Only one way to tame Crankensteinâ€™s monster. Heart-to-heart
Watkinâ€™s Pond, Book 2
Bestselling author and infamous town hermit Radcliffe
McQueen knows what he likes, what he doesnâ€™t, and refuses to
pretend social niceties. Particularly with a red-hot mess of
a woman whoâ€™s taken it upon herself to smooth his rough
She thinks she can change him? Bring it. Heâ€™s more than
willing to teach her the wisdom of doing things his way.
Besides, itâ€™ll distract him from the horror of facing a
Stodgy. Stubborn. Sanctimonious. Sheri Riddle can think of a
long list of adjectives to describe her newest project. An
artist by trade, a personality renovator by calling, sheâ€™s
sure she can transform the blockheaded author into a
reasonably personable human being.
Yet as they lock horns, each scrapes away layers of the
other until something happens thatâ€™s quite outside of
Sheriâ€™s plans. Something thatâ€™ll take more than one taste of
passion to satisfyâ€¦
Warning: Contains a temperamental author, a moody artist, a
sexy assistant and a hoarder house. Did we mention rabid
squirrels? Yeah, one of those too.
