A Kirkus Star for The Merry Viscount!

Advance reviews for The Merry Viscount are starting to come in, and I’m delighted to report that someone liked the book! I’m always figuratively biting my nails when a story steps out into the “literary ballroom” for the first time, worrying that it will be given the cut direct.

The first review that hit my inbox was from Amelia Richard at She gave the story four stars and said it was “constantly engaging.” You can read her full review here. The second review had me dancing around my office. The Merry Viscount earned a Kirkus Star, given to books of “exceptional merit”! The reviewer called it an “emotionally satisfying holiday romance full of love and redemption.” Hooray! You can read that review here.

And now it’s back to work I go on Widow’s Brew book #3. Catchy title, eh?

Mark your calendars!

Cathy Maxwell is hosting a reading salon in the Richmond VA area on Sept. 27, and I’ll be there with three other romance authors–Gaithersburg Book Festival co-panelist Charis Michaels as well as Alleyne Dickens and Andie J. Christopher. Space is limited, so reserve your spot now! Here’s the link to tickets.

Attention, Reviewers!

Just wanted to take a break from writing book 3 of the Widow’s Brew series to pop in and let any of you who are reviewers know that the second book, a September 24 release, The Merry Viscount, is now up on NetGalley. Here’s the link that should get you to the page where you can request a copy. Hope you enjoy it!
