Greetings Gentle Readers:

Not one, not two, but THREE books in Target!

Minerva Spencer books for sale in Target

Here are Infamous, Outrageous, and The Arrangement for sale in Target.

This week my mom is visiting and we decided to take a longggg road trip to Colorado Springs to check out one of the fantastic Asian food markets (there are at least 8 of them in The Springs!)

I highly recommend the Asian Market, which we spent almost two hours browsing and could have spent oodles more time exploring.

Anyhow, we also did some other shopping and because I LOVE Target (even before they carried my books, but now I love them even more) we popped into one of the Targets in CS. And there were my lovely books!!

Did I squee and smirk? Yes, I did …

I think the Target employee who was stocking books must have thought I was the most out-of-control shopper he’d ever met.

So, what have I cooked with the load of Asian groceries I hauled home? So far I’ve made yellow curry, massaman curry, Vietnamese egg rolls, and pad Thai. Today will be green curry day. Do I like curry? Yeah, just a wee bit.

Here is a pic of the pooches, who are growing by leaps and bounds:

Great Pyrenees Puppies!

Here are Spot and Rover. Do they look guilty? They should. They just chewed up their dog bed…

And here is a #booksandshoes picture! Yes, I have more shoes to show off.

The Rebels of the Ton Series by Minerva Spencer

Here are my lovely Rebels of the Ton and a favorite pair of Chuck Taylors

 

THE FOOTMAN makes an appearance in PW Indie Scouting Report!

Yay! How cool is this? Publishers Weekly included THE FOOTMAN in their monthly Indie Scouting Report, which is a round up of the best books of the month.

I’m so thrilled the reviewers compared THE FOOTMAN to the titles in Mary Balogh’s Bedwyn series, which is my favorite of hers.

Here is a LINK to the brief article. I’ve also included my section of the round up below.

S.M. Laviolette

Synopsis: In 1802, impetuous 16-year-old Lady Elinor Atwood throws herself at her family’s new footman, setting off a devastating chain of events.

PW’s Takeaway: Lovers of historical romance will be hooked on this twisty story.

Comparable Title: Mary Balogh’s Bedwyn Saga series

Sample Line: “Iain had just opened his mouth to say something foolish and most likely job-ending when the door Lady Elinor had exited so violently opened and Lady Yarmouth stood on the threshold.”
