This is the young pomegranate tree in our backyard, in spring. Next year I must get a close-up of the flowers. They
are the most exotic blooms I've ever set eyes on. And of course they have nothing to do with this post!

Yes indeedy, two more great reviews for Blueprint For Love at

Four Book status from Camilla at Long And Short Reviews on the 6th February 2009. "Unbridled, hot emotion pitted against icy, pig-headed pride... The conflict between environmentalists and developers... a backdrop for Catherine's volatile personality and Paul's all-business attitude... Strong characters and how they try to manage love... keeps the reader turning pages..."

AND Four and a Half Delightful Divas from Eliza at Dark Diva Reviews on 6th February 2009: "Cathy and Paul start off literally with sparks flying... Heated arguments and passionate kisses, whether to hate each other or fall madly in love... A spicy tale..."

I must admit the enthusiastic reviews make all the work of writing worth it. Would love to receive comments from other readers!

Hi Monya,
I read Blueprint for Love and loved it. It was so captivating. I even cried at the end with my tissue box. I loved the bit when she was daring him to go skinny dipping with her. It was done so well but then again, I loved lots of pieces in it.
For anyone that wants a good contemporary love story, this one will satisy your heart. :)

A good review is what makes our hearts race with pride. Our hard work meant something to readers. That's what it's all about.

Monya--Hi. I'm the one checking out blog sites. Yours is nice--I like those best that are not so cluttered. It causes the readers eyes to flit back and forth. I'm still thinking. I'm on four group blogspots like this one, and at least I know how it works. Beautiful tree! Celia

Suzanne - hello!
I haven't checked my blog for weeks and was surprised to find three comments! And yours is so satisfying. I can tell you meant every word. (I made someone else cry too, how satisfying is that?)
Thanks, dear girl!
