"My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose - somehow we win out." ~Ronald Reagan
I'm so excited because I was Googling myself last night (yeah, I use Google Alerts, but it doesn't always turn up everything) and I discovered that One Night in Memphis received a 4-star review from Romantic Times! Very excited!! The only problem is that I don't subscribe, and you can't read the review online until 2 months after the print issue comes out...so if anyone out there is an RT subscriber and can send me the actual review (firstname.lastname@example.org) , I would be eternally grateful!
Now, of course, begins the waiting and fingernail-chewing for reviews of One Night in Napa. I confess it's gotten a little easier to read reviews of my work since the first book, but I still cringe a little. And Mrs. Giggles? Oh Lord help me if/when she reviews Napa!
Update: Thanks to my fellow SP authors, here's the RT review!
Thrilling action and suspense complement a budding romance in this touching story of two people finding new beginnings. Appealing secondary characters add depth to an engaging plot.
Summary: Fed up with Sean's constant vows that he's leaving his wife, Dakota ends the relationship and heads to Memphis for a reunion with a girlfriend. She wants to relax, party and forget the past year. Ethan, meanwhile, still mourns the wife he lost to cancer more than a year ago. Basketball buddies convince him a night on Beale Street is what he needs to start living again.Dakota first spots Ethan on the basketball court, and both are pleased when they meet again in a downtown club. After a couple of false starts they begin to share what is meaningful in their lives. But their blossoming relationship is threatened when a violent Sean appears.
