I must admit that my scheduled blog post date for December completely snuck up on me! I could blame the fact that the holidays are in full swing, but really it was just that I had my head stuck in my laptop as I finished up my June 2019 release, Practice Makes Perfect, the first of a set of contemporary romances about a group of friends from law school who form their own firm in Austin, Texas.
I’ve so focused on getting these gals to their happily ever after, that I almost forgot to celebrate the release of novel #21, Pursuit of Happiness, which is my anecdote to our often frustrating and sometimes scary current political climate:
Senator Meredith Mitchell has been groomed from young adulthood for a future run for president, and as scion of a political dynasty, every public and private move she makes is carefully calculated. But Meredith’s focus on the right causes, the right people, and the right timing evaporates when she meets Stevie Palmer, a dashing public defender with a hard knock past. A firebrand like Stevie is the last person she should be associating with, especially when Meredith’s political future turns into right now, and her party urges her to enter the presidential race.
Attorney Stevie Palmer refuses to be limited by the low expectations of others or by taking the politically safe route. Cautious, media-perfect presidential candidate Meredith Mitchell is the last woman she expected to fall for, but Stevie has never hesitated to pursue her passions. When her client reveals a Mitchell family scandal that could derail Meredith’s career, everything Meredith and Stevie value hangs in the balance, including Meredith’s shot at the presidency and their chance at love.
If Pursuit of Happiness sounds like a book you’d like to read, leave a comment about what things you’re focused on this time of year, and I’ll draw a name to win a free copy of the book. Leave your comments by midnight CST, Friday, December 7th and I’ll post the winner on Saturday. Cheers!
