I'm almost done! Huge thanks to Lena Goldfinch for my gorgeous cover!

Here is the book blurb for A TASTE OF HEAVEN...

“Create one perfect bite.”

Good little widow Sophia Brown always follows the rules. When the producer of a cooking competition requests an amuse-bouche, the chefs stick with proteins. Sauces. A savory concoction. She has only one shot to impress the judges on A Taste of Heaven. But in a moment of defiance, she creates an extraordinary dessert, one that combines both the bitter and the sweet, just like her own life.

That one bite changes everything.

After a year grieving for her dead husband, 47-year old Sophia is finally ready to break out of her shell. Unfortunately, there is a large, angry obstacle standing in her way. Scottish chef Elliott Adamson has a chip on his shoulder the size of Loch Ness, and he’s blocking her path to victory.

Spurred by her daughters, she embarks on a poignant adventure that takes her from the wildflower fields of Vermont to the wind-swept vista of North Berwick, Scotland. Fear, courage, and inspiration from unlikely places will mark this journey, and Sophia is determined to persevere until the very end.

A few super quickie book recommendations...

WHAT PRICE PARADISE by Katherine Allred: I adored this wonderful, old-fashioned romance. Very well-written, emotional, with a slow-simmering attraction between the H/h that was believable and satisfying. It's only 99 cents right now. GO BUY IT!

DOG ON IT by Spencer Quinn: Adorable, quirky mystery narrated by a dog. Very clever and fun. Looking forward to reading the rest of this series! I bought a paperback to save's the link.

THE DAUGHTER OF AN EARL by Victoria Morgan (coming July 7th): It's been a long time since I read and enjoyed a historical romance this much. My fabulous critique partner has a new book coming out, and it's a gem. With an engaging storyline, beautiful writing, and fascinating historical tidbits, this one is a winner! Here's the Amazon link.

I made an ad for Vicki's book (I am having way too much fun doing these things...hee hee)...


Off to write,
