The Sun Will Shine Again

We had a lovely day today. My little girls came and we went to play on the beach. Later my daughter arrived still wearing her scrubs after a thirty-hour shift. I took my granddaughters and went to visit my mother who is confined to her recliner after her recent stroke. We wanted to let my daughter sleep for a few hours and at the same time I knew how much my mother enjoys seeing the smiling faces of the two little girls.

In the evening I had a lovely surprise as I received an unexpected review for my romantic suspense, FRENCH PERIL. This book was released as ebook in June 08 by Cerridwen Press and should soon come out as paperback book.

Here is the review link at Coffee Time Romance:

4 cups.
French Peril is a great romance with an excellent mystery. The instant attraction is met with a slow and sure build up of emotions. The couple are very complementary, compelling, and wonderfully romantic. The physical part of the relationship is not the most important part of the book, but good. The background characters are intriguing, with an ending that is complicated but entertaining. Ms Risk writes outstanding dialogue and this, combined with the lushness of the Loire Valley, are the final elements that make French Peril an excellent story.

Here is the chateau where I set my story.

For those entering my contest, here are new questions:

What are the name of the hero and heroine of French Peril? What are their nationalities and what are their positions or jobs?

today was also a great day at the beach as the girls and their mom slept with us. Slept is a way of speech. Although she is three, my little granddaughter puts a regular fight to go to bed and wakes up at least three times a night screaming and crying.The rest of the day was heaven.
