Here are a few photos from Laurie's (Bargain Hunting with Laurie)wonderful book launch party. We had such a good time. I'm ready to move to Blytheville! You can see (below) a sample of the delicious food.

I'm home today, tucked into flannels and watching Lifetime movies with Mister, who is almost well, thank goodness. I appreciate everyone who has been concerned about him.
A peachy centerpiece--this was just one of several decorations Laurie made, based on characters in the novel. I love the peek into her backyard. We were in Houston yesterday, at Murder by the Book, a wonderful indie store in Houston, Texas. Here's my husband--he's reading an Ann Rule book. The store's shelves are decorated with all kinds of mysterious items. We had a wonderful time.
My publisher is offering a free, downloadable "Teeny" ebook (cookbook)--written by the main character in Gone With a Handsomer Man, Teeny Templeton. :-) Hope you enjoy it--you can "flip" the pages like an almost-real book (right here in the blog).

  9. I know you're happy to be back home & in your jammies, ML! "No place like home" ;-)

    How cool that the publishers took YOUR beautiful photos of past Foodie Friday postings & included them in the online book. I had fun looking through it & remembering...especially that GORGEOUS salad!

    My book won't be in for 8-10 days...stupid slow-poke Borders! :/ However, I got the recipe for the vanilla peach coffee cake from Kathleen so I'm all set for the 23rd FF.

    Pat the poochie for me, okay? Oh & Dr. Big, too. Huggable Handsome devil, isn't he?
