Add a thunder shower and a cup of cocoa and I'm in heaven!

Friday night, sweet hubby went walking with the girls then brought them back for a daddy Mario Kart challenge. After a full day of grading writing papers and teaching, I snuggled into fluffy socks and a warm robe. With my hot mint tea and a piece of chocolate cream pie – interesting flavor combo, but it worked – I got to immerse myself in a brand new book that I've been trying to find time to read for a couple of weeks now.

So glad I waited. It was well worth it to find a time when I could focus on this literary gem.

Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Lol! You make me laugh! Oh, but that is an intriguing idea! You have to get away from an era enough to appreciate the subtleties of it. It would sure be a challenge to write up a hero with big hair and take him seriously! LOL!

  2. I like the Victorian era, 1830s-1890s. But I will pick up a story set in the 1940s in a heartbeat!It's funny you mentioned the 80s. I can't wait until someone starts writing romances set in this decade. Can you imagine? The heroine's wearing her legwarmers and the hero's got his hair metal music on! Love it!

  4. I thoroughly enjoyed A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas. It's a fun story with likable characters, a mystery, and rich historical detail that brings the time and place to life. The two-fer romance aspect is a bonus, enabling readers to enjoy not one but two couples reaching their happily-ever-afters.
