A surge of adrenaline. A rush of endorphins. A buzz of excitement filtering through me that can only mean one thing…my first book is out! The e-book of Table for One has landed, and my life shall never be the same again! Okay, that might be a little dramatic, but this is the only day I will have a first release for the rest of my life, and if you saw me dancing right now you'd know I have a healthy dose of crazy!
If only I could bottle up all the laughs I had while writing this book, and pass them along to the readers. My heroine, Lucy Brocklehurst, is a confident, well-adjusted, fun-loving person—at least she was until I started writing her story and throwing darts at her love life. I had more fun putting her in socially awkward situations than any writer should be allowed, and I'd do it all again!
If you need a laugh or a little pick-me-up, Table for One is a fun place to start!
Back cover blurb:
Successful stockbroker Lucy Brocklehurst hasn't had a date in four years. In a town where the ratio of single women to men is 7:1, she's determined to wait on God for the perfect mate—as long as it's the hot new youth pastor at her church.
Lucy will do anything to get his attention, including volunteering for the youth group. Through a series of misadventures on the teen outings, Lucy finds herself falling in love with a kindhearted chaperone named Edgar Flowers. But when their relationship grows serious, Lucy discovers the lengths his recently-widowed mother will go to in order to keep them apart. What starts out as harmless interference turns into an all out tug of war, with Edgar as the prize!
Will Lucy crumble under the scrutiny of her would-be mother-in-law? Or can Lucy and Edgar's budding romance survive the schemes of his meddling mom?
Me here again:
I want to give a special thanks to Nicola for being so patient and kind as she walked me through my first book, and being a wonderful editor! Also, thanks to Kimberlee Mendoza for the beautiful cover! A book really is a team effort, and I believe we have all the best players right here in The Garden!
