a great summer read!

The time has come, my dear fans, book lovers and readers!

Nowhere But Here, a “park your butt in the hammock, have a glass of pinot noir at hand and settle in” kind of book by my darling friend and accomplished author, Renee Carlino, is now available in paperback! I’m so excited for her and could not be more pleased to hear that this book is already flying off the shelves. So, before you hit the roads for your summer vaca or fill up the inflatable pool for your “stay-cay”, go out and grab a copy.


Thank you to the lovely people at Simon and Schuster for asking me to be a part of the book blog tour. I must say, I’ve missed blogging the last couple weeks and I’m feeling energized to be writing again, so thank you! Now that we’re settling in to our new “old” house in New Jersey, I hope I can share some of what I’ve been up to in the coming days, so come back…often. 🙂

Now, here is a synopsis that SHOULD make every one of you want to run out and buy it.

“A jaded Chicago reporter in her twenties unexpectedly finds love in Napa Valley when she’s assigned to spend a week with a famously reclusive genius in this rich and deeply satisfying contemporary romance by the USA TODAY bestselling author of Sweet Thing.

Kate Corbin has lost her spark. A year ago, she had a handsome boyfriend and a budding career as a reporter at a popular Chicago newspaper. But after the woman who raised her passed away, leaving her lost and alone, she fell into a rut—and never got out. Now she’s stuck writing fluff pieces about lipstick and wine, and feeling trapped in a relationship that’s going nowhere.

Trusting that the hungry, ace reporter is buried somewhere deep inside, Kate’s boss and mentor gives her the opportunity to jump-start her career. The assignment: spend a week interviewing R. J. Lawson, a famously reclusive tech genius who disappeared years ago but recently reemerged as the owner of a well-respected Napa Valley winery.

Kate jumps at the chance, but the trip begins in disaster, both personally and professionally. After alienating R.J., her only saving grace is Jamie, a charming vineyard hand who shows her the beauty of wine country—and stirs her aching heart. It doesn’t take long for Kate and Jamie to fall hard, and for Kate to rethink her life in the city. But the week ends with a heartbreaking journey back to Chicago that sends Kate reeling, wondering what went wrong in those four perfect days.”

I’m honored to have been asked by this world-renowned publisher to be a part of the buzz and hype for Renee. It’s amazing and exciting and I certainly can’t wait to see just how far my talented friend and author will go! Hugs!!!
