Go buy Searching for Spice!
Linda Revere and I recently had coffee and talked and laughed. I like her real outlook on life, her desire to serve the Lord and her honest failings about seeing God at work in her life. I especially love her wit and her heart that wants romance…from her own husband.
Doesn’t she sound like someone you would want to hang out with for a while? Well, you can. On April 1st go to your local bookstore and buy Searching for Spice, my friend Megan Dimaria’s debut novel. I finished it a couple of days ago and some of the lines are still tickling me. That’s how good it is.
Megan’s novel isn’t your typical girl meets boy, wants boy, loses boy, and finds boy romance. It is a book that any woman married more than say… one week…can relate to. Linda has been married for almost 25 years to a stoic, dependable nice guy. They have two children, one in high school and one in college. She has a job at a photography studio and her husband is a teacher. Their dog Belle is adorable. A lovely life.
However, Linda wants more. She, like so many of us, wants romance from her man. She wants to have an affair with her husband. Her steps to “make” this happen are quite funny and the dominoes that fall from her scheme will have you sitting up late turning pages. And giggling. Several times I had to stop and get my husband’s attention to read him a funny line from the book. This is high praise!
So you want to have coffee with a new friend? Your chance is coming – APRIL 1st head on over to your local bookstore and pick up Searching for Spice by Megan (pronounced Mee-gan) Dimaria. You’ll be glad you did!
