Re: Their Unexpected Love (10:14am June 10, 2014):
Just returned from a special time in Maine. Watching the
lobstermen leave and return each day was wonderful. Got to read a really, really good book. Sweet Filthy Boy by the team of Christina Lauren. Can't wait until the sequel comes out in the fall. Fun, funny and sexy. Need I say more?
Re: Home to Stay (7:34am April 16, 2014):
We live on a lovely, large lake. It is quiet now but soon the boats will be out fishing, or just exploring the shores.
We winter in FL but ALWAYS return to home with open hearts because it is truly welcoming, peaceful and warm. It is true "There is NO place like home."
Re: Unfixable (7:22am April 16, 2014):
I fell in love with Tony, the male hero, in The Opposite of Maybe and actually reread the book because of him. He is funny and warm and loving. Finished the book last week and I am still remembering him. Best hero in many, many, many reads.
Re: A Perfect Distraction (9:08am April 9, 2014):
Our home is Victorian and we have a lot of dusty rose, peach, pink and our bedroom is RED. No wallpaper. Lots of dolls, rocking horses, and lovely antiqued furniture. Love it Many friends call it The Doll House.
Re: Shadowed By Grace (10:45am March 16, 2014):
I live in a Victorian House and my reading spot is on my lovely chaise lounge, that has seen better days. I share some of my plots of my favorite books with my husband but often send the books I love best to my Diva friend in CA, as she is a full time hospital worker..then we discuss the reading via e-mail. Keep writing!
Re: Limoncello Yellow (3:52pm January 14, 2014):
San Francisco...its' trolleys, Lombard St, the Waterfront where all the action is...love it. Just got a gift of Lemoncello from friends returning from Italia. I will open it to celebrate your new book...sounds like a good one.
Re: Shadowed By Grace (8:47am January 10, 2014):
Yes, I remember the aluminum scrap drives and also meeting trains at White Plains RR Station and selling war bonds in my Girl Scout uniform. Proud of every minute and we won the wars too. Those were the GOOD OLE DAYS.
Book sounds like you did some excellent research.
Re: Wild Violets (3:10pm January 2, 2014):

Re: Thrown (6:59am December 16, 2013):

Re: The Blake Legacy (7:47am December 6, 2013):
Neat site. Ho!Ho!Ho! Off to buy gift cards for books for my family and friends. Easy for me and fun for them to select a good read for a cold winter's night. Happy Holidays.
Re: Lies that Bind (2:37pm November 20, 2013):
Keep singing...keep acting...keep writing and keep loving.
That is worth MORE than a million dollars any day.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Re: The Bitches of Brooklyn (1:45pm November 19, 2013):
We were renting a house in Maine on the ocean and I wanted to do some shelling. I had bought a pretty pair of rubber boots, floral and very stylish and not inexpensive! The first day there, I was ready for action and headed down the rocks. POW. I slipped and fell and barely made it up to the house. For the rest of the stay, these boots greeted you at the front door and now they are in a box on a high shelf. So much for my athletic side. Love your books.
Re: A Song At Twilight (9:29am November 18, 2013):

Re: Never Underestimate a Caffarelli (12:18pm October 28, 2013):
It would be painful for me and mine, BUT you could still read which is the greatest joy in my life. Keep writing!
Re: The Wishing Thread (12:12pm October 28, 2013):
When I was in high school, it was the
the "thing" to do..make argyle socks for your boy friend.
My friend taught me (kind of) and I worked so hard and finished a lovely pair and gifted my beau. A week later he brought them to me with a large hole in them. I did not twist the colors correctly and they finally just fell apart. Years later, I took knitting lessons and knit hats for newborns at the local hospital. It's fun just like reading is. Keep writing!
Re: Milkshakes, Mermainds, and Murder (9:29am October 24, 2013):
Many years ago I was shopping in Westport,CT when I passed a handsome man dressed in tennis whites. He had blue eyes that were lovely, and a friendly smile. It was Paul
Newman and it " made my day."
Your book sounds great!
Re: The Butterfly Sister (11:00am October 20, 2013):

Re: Behind the Shattered Glass (6:29pm October 17, 2013):
I would be laying the fire at 5 a.m. and the Master would come in and notice me. Then he would fall in love with me and I would be the Mistress of the Manor and live there happily ever after. I love Victorian novels and love your writing.
Re: Dirty Trick (10:14am September 26, 2013):
Zuccini bread fresh from the oven. Mmmmmm-m good. And a

Re: Gideon's Call (4:21pm September 22, 2013):
I particularly enjoyed your story about you and your wife both ordering the books. Talk about a sweet relationship.
I, too, have that special relationship with my mate and it is wonderful. Hoping I will get to put your book in my growing collection of gems.
Re: Heirs And Graces (9:01am September 16, 2013):
Rhys, love your column and I am hereby offering to be "your lady in waiting" on your next trip. I can carry your hat!
I would pack a white long skirt and some colorful tops..stay cool and be cool.
Re: Against The Ropes (2:48pm September 6, 2013):
Sarah, I really enjoy a book with a plot that brings out humor. It is a special additive that I, personally, enjoy and look forward to. It is so important to laugh and enjoy!
Re: Never Say No to a Caffarelli (8:57am September 3, 2013):
A moist zuccini bread, especially since we have a very ample supply in our garden presently. Congrats on your 50th. Keep writing!
Re: High Country Rebel (2:12pm August 27, 2013):

You are a writer with a great voice. Keep writing.
Re: Italian Affair (6:59am August 10, 2013):
Annie, I have loved Anne of Green Gables since I was a child. I have the doll and a copy of the book in my great room and it makes me happy to see it. I miss characters, too, after reading about them. I love the high of a great plot and find myself eager for triologys so I can remain in contact with characters that are warm and loving. Italian Villa sounds like a good read.
Re: A Brew to a Kill (1:26pm August 6, 2013):
What a warm and homey site you have. It is fun to visit and you are very creative!
Your books have creative ingredients too. Keep writing!
Re: The Passion Of The Purple Plumeria (1:04pm August 6, 2013):
What a great idea. I, too, read 4-5 books a week and never write them all down. A couple of times I signed out one at the library only to discover I had read it. The library does not keep count. Thanks for the idea. Now on to new Pink Carnation Adventures.
Re: Death Al Dente (9:27am August 5, 2013):
Death al Dente sounds like a great read. I never heard of Huckleberry Chocolate..sounds mmm-mmmm good.
Moved when the house we lived in was to be sold by my grandparents when they moved to FL. I never looked back.
Re: Reckless (2:05pm July 24, 2013):
I just watched Tom Cruise in The Ghost Protocol and he did a lot of those wild stunts. I was glued watching it and would put it up there with "some of the greatest stunts."
Look forward to your read.
Re: Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir (7:08pm July 22, 2013):
I believe this adventure is meant to be for you and your husband sounds wonderful to share it with you. Nice plots coming from there and if and when you decide it's time to move on, just do that. Together you can do anything. Keep writing,Eliza, and enjoy!
Re: Raspberries and Vinegar (10:56am July 21, 2013):
My husband recently retired and took over cooking and WOW! he is good. He really cooks from scratch, creates his own recipes and best of all he makes homemade pasta that is light as air. Look forward to RASPBERRIES AND VINEGAR. You got me at the title.
Re: Rancher to the Rescue (9:36am July 17, 2013):
A "jock" and I saw all his trophys but never knew he used to get up early in the morning on special occasions to make homemade ravioli with his dad. My mouth still waters when I remember the first time I saw that platter heaped with homemade pasta. He still does it and has never given me his recipe.
Re: Winning a Bride (7:18pm July 5, 2013):
Jade, you are so funny. I like Novellas or regular book length books. I just love to read a good plot with great characters. That's how I have been spending this glorious 4th of July and it has been wonderful. Keep writing and keep making us smile!
Re: Wish You Were Here (5:11pm June 28, 2013):
I took a Saturday position in the Children's Room at the
library nearest our home because I wanted to tell the stories to children. My boss was an ogre but I kept at it until I graduated because I loved the children and the books. Now I tell stories to my 9 year old grandson. He loves reading and books as much as I do. Keep writing!
Re: Rescuing Dawn (9:44am June 19, 2013):
I met my "forever friend" in church. Then she moved way across country to CA and we became e-mail buddies. She is always there for me and visa versa. Miss her smiling, beautiful face but she is ALWAYS there for me.y
Re: Paige Torn (9:32am May 27, 2013):
We moved to VA from CT 13 years ago and brought several bulbs that my mom gave us. Two were of a lovely peach color Iris that barely reproduced for the first few years here. My husband and I continued moving it and last year we could have won first prize with the huge, gorgeous Iris.
Re: With a Vengeance (5:35pm May 3, 2013):
I met best my best friend in church many, many years ago. She has since moved to the other coast but we are together via e-mail often. It is so pleasing that our e-mails have passed in space showing we are thinking of each other at the same moment. We are truly blessed.
Re: Father By Choice (2:06pm April 30, 2013):
I enjoy children in a book if it is handled in an honest and you know how to do it. Keep Writing!
Re: The Seven-Day Target (8:28am April 29, 2013):
Is there any other kind of genre out there more enticing?
You do it all and the other ingrediant I look for is a hero with a great sense of homor. Would love to read your book.
Re: Out Of Circulation (9:28am March 10, 2013):
I look forward to meeting Charlie and Diesel...sounds like a purrrrty neat adventure. Keep writing!
Re: Against The Odds (5:16pm December 19, 2012):
Growing up with two children, one girl, one boy, we would select a christmas tree ornament that depicted a "happening"
to each of them. An example, a chef holding a big cookie for our son who had to take home economics and learned how to bake cookies. A pair of figure skates when our daughter wanted to be Dorothy Hammil. They do the same with their children now and still treasure the warm memories brought when they hang their old memory ornaments.
Happy Holidays,e Kat.
Re: The Bridegroom Wore Plaid (1:50pm December 7, 2012):
I love everything Victorian. My husband and I attended a week Elderhostel and the theme was "all things Victorian".
It was the best program we have attended and we especially loved the evening on Victorian Dancing...Oh, the gowns were beautiful beyond belief. Would love to win your book.
Re: Wish Upon A Christmas Star (6:02am December 2, 2012):
My wish for Christmas is to be selected to win the prize of your books. Hoping and wishing you the Happiest of Holidays.
Re: Heart Of A Texan (10:43pm November 30, 2012):
What woman would not be charmed by a handsome cow poke in tight jeans riding into town on a white charger? It wouuld be me....dream, dream, dream.
Sounds like a great and sexy read.
Re: Holiday in Crimson (10:18am November 25, 2012):
It was our tradition to give our children an orniment for the Christmas tree that recalled something special that happened that year. A chef ornament, when our son had to take home economics; a ballet dancer when our daughter took ballet lessons. Now, married, they do the same with their children.
Re: Holiday in Crimson (9:44am November 25, 2012):
Each of our children received a Christmas ornament that recalled a special memory of the past year. Now our children have started that tradition with their children.
Fun to see and happy they enjoy a simple joy.
Re: Got Game? (9:41am September 22, 2012):
As a golf widow, I would love GOT GAME. Even though I tried to play the game, which my husband loves, I prefer to read about it. I follow the Tour and know most of the USA Players as well as the Europeans. Willl be immersed in the Ryder Cup this week end. Go USA.
Re: The Curse (1:15pm September 16, 2012):
An avid book there is nothing more SPECIAL to me than to hold a book, especially a brand new one, in my hands. They are making the covers, and now, the inside front pages so lovely that I have several scattered around our bedroom in a book holder. Many of my friends have done the same. Had a Kindle but I like to read a book, the old fashioned way, in my hand.
Re: The Curse (1:03pm September 16, 2012):
An avid reader and an old fashioned gal that loves to hold a book in my hands. They are so pretty now i.e. ROSES that I have put it on display in a book holder and it is in our bedroom. Many friends have copied my idea with their pretty books. Had a Kindle as a gift but prefer reading the old fashioned way...in my hands.
Re: When You Give A Duke A Diamond (4:08pm September 8, 2012):
As an avid reader especially Victorian romances, I found your information about divorces or lack of quite interesting. Something I never thought about but glad to have the inside information. Thanks for sharing your research. Look forward to 3 Diamonds and keep writing!
Re: Allergic To Death (9:26am August 19, 2012):

Re: Deep Blue (8:04am August 14, 2012):
We did three cruises in three years and enjoyed them all.
BUT, had no will power when it came to the bountiful buffets and the lovely teas. I put 5 pounds on each time and still working to get it off.
Alaska was the best surprise as I felt I was going to please my husband but it is beautiful beyond compare. The most exciting thing for me was an invitation to sit at the Captain's Table Still have the photos to prove it!

Re: The Last Victim (10:27am August 6, 2012):
Your writing has always brought my silver linings and you are my favorite author. Spent weekend falling in love with Mick and Jason via SLEEPWALKER, followed by Mark and Jess in JUSTICE. You never let me down and I always rethink your books days after I finished the last page and my heart feela happy. Keep listening to your heart. I will always be there to listen and applaud.
I know you listen to your heart.

Re: Deep Autumn Heat (8:28am July 6, 2012):
I hailed from Woodbury, CT and enjoy small town tales. Never liked exercise, but did try CURVES in CT and later here in VA. UGH, boring. Knowing I had to do something to remain a size 10, I walk with my husband and our Golden Retreiver. Good luck on your latest and keep writing.

Re: Honorable Rancher (10:04am June 22, 2012):
Reading is my passion. In high school I worked in a large library after school in the Children's Room because I got to tell stories to them on Saturday mornings. Now I am a Snow Bird in FL and the first thing I do when I get unpacked in go and join the library there. It is the best money I spend! Keep writing!
Re: Grill Me, Baby (9:30am June 17, 2012):
I was so lucky to live upstairs from my grandmother who came from Lithuania. I was like her shadow and watched her cook, pink cheeked and always smiling. But my best memories of when she showed me how to make New pickles, which only remain in the chock for 24 hours. She said, "Patsy don't touch them until then." I would creep down into the cellar and lift the plate that covered them and try one! I make them now but miss the fun of being with grandma! Plan to share this experience soon with my 9 year old grandson who, like me, loves pickles.
