Linda Francis Lee signing DEVIL Originally uploaded by freshfiction. Wednesday was exciting — nail day, always a treat to be beautiful and one of our favorite people came to town! It’s always wonderful to see Linda, she’s moved away to the Big Apple, but she is still always at home in Texas. She got up early to be on the local morning show in Dallas and went around town signing copies of her latest — THE DEVIL IN THE JUNIOR LEAGUE — but she still looked as beautiful as ever! She was very patient with all of us and signed our copies of THE DEVIL — a treat to read, honestly! Visit to learn more about books and authors.

Mud Pie, Fruit Tart and Almond tartl

Mud Pie, Fruit Tart and Almond carmel Originally uploaded by freshfiction. Our Victorian Tea was a success. Well, all we did was show up — hungry — Mindy and Alan did the rest! And wow, what a job they did. Three full courses: finger sandwiches — ham & cheese biscuits, three-layered cucumber asparagas, and our best-loved chicken curry. Followed by scones with jams and clotted cream. Ah, the scones! And that blueberry flan as Gwen called it! I got full on them! No way to eat them all and then have dessert! I tried, honestly, but thank goodness for goodie bags. Because there is NO way I was leaving the mud pie and Almond tart. (I’ll admit I had to eat the fruit tart there, and it was yummy!). Now, what am I forgetting? Oh, dear, not possibly the delicious Pear Caramel tea? Have no fear! That was so good, you’ve got to share the source! It was beyond sublime and I think it’d make a great iced tea too! And our little parting gifts — minature tea cup sets. A thumbell size dollop to get me through *grin* Thanks, Mindy, you are the best hostess! Visit to learn…

Candace Havens signing CHARMED & READY Originally uploaded by freshfiction. It was a very busy Saturday — first we had to get to North Richland Hills for Candace Haven’s signing of CHARMED & READY and then back to Las Colinas for our “Victorian” Tea. But we did it! Candace was GORGEOUS, she was dressed to kill or kick some, you know what, down to the boots with the stiletto heels! Oh MY!!! And since I’ve read and raved already about CHARMED & READY I won’t say more than, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GET IT! READ IT! You’ll laugh with Bronwyn as she tries to juggle work and a jealous boyfriend, and sigh over Zane — what a gorgeous hunk! We should have such a tough choice! CHARMED & READY is a delightful way to spend an afternoon or evening. Visit to learn more about books and authors.

Dorothea and Faye Originally uploaded by freshfiction. Along with our own Faye during an author visit at Gwinnett County Public Library near Atlanta. Joining the Tuesday night Book Club, Faye has a copy of the latest Low Country novel, FULL OF GRACE. Good reading! Ah, you look lovely as usual, Faye! The rich atmosphere of South Carolina, Hilton Head and Charleston, is brought vividly to life by Dorothea Benton Frank, a South Carolina native who, with her exquisitely evocative prose, makes you smell the sea air, see the palmettos, and savor the sweet tea, but this time it comes with a side of antipasti.
