Just Kiss Me book review

Published July 26, 2016 by francesothomas

Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho, but she must have spent some time in the South. She nails the tone and the idiom in her newest book Just Kiss Me.

Vivien Leigh Rochet lives with her bipolar mother in a carriage house next to the mansion of a Charleston, South Carolina. snobby society matron. With a name like that, of course she dreams of becoming an actress. She is wildly successful and becomes fodder for gossip magazines.

When she comes home for her mother’s funeral, she finds the son of the matron has changed from the boy she remembered. He’s given up his high pressure Wall Street career and now does custom woodworking.

Henry helps Vivien deal with settling her mother’s affairs. Suddenly he isn’t as scary as he used to seem. Their relationship grows until a series of secrets are revealed.

Gibson has a way with dialogue. This was fun to read.

KissCon launching on West Coast

Published October 23, 2014 by francesothomas

I often wish I lived on the West Coast. Now I have kiss two more reasons. Avon is launching new events called KissCon.

What does KissCon entail? A group of Avon authors will be doing a signing, a Q&A, and fun, interactive events with the audience. There will be prizes and raffles. Authors attending each event will vary slightly. Attendance is free, unless you spring for a VIP ticket—which gets you in to an exclusive reception with the authors, as well as one of the featured authors’ books.

Maybe I will finish one of my own romance novels in time to be featured at a Florida KissCon someday.  Anyway, here are the locations:
