Re: Welcome to Sneak Peek: Romance!

Hey everyone:

Here's the link to Heather Webber's website if you want to read up about her.

 

And, there are great quotes for the book there:

 

"A delightful protagonist and a clever premise combine to make this one of the most entertaining books I've read in months. Lucy is someone whose
adventures you'll want to follow again and again."
--Charlaine Harris

"Lucy Valentine is as comic and romantic as her name implies, not to mention engaging, sexy, and smart. She has an otherworldy knack for finding lost objects, and will undoubtedly find her creator, Heather Webber, many new fans."
--Harley Jane Kozak
Agatha, Anthony & Macavity-award winning author of A Date You Can't Refuse

The book sounds like it will be totally fun.  I'm looking forward to the discussion with everyone from the new comers to the seasoned board participants.

Re: Welcome to Sneak Peek: Romance!

Got confirmation for the Sneak Peek.  I've participated in several First Looks and really enjoyed discussing them with the other B & N members. I mostly read Mysteries, but enjoy a light romance with mystery or paranormal tones.  I like Barbara Bretton's Casting Spells & Laced w/Magic.  Also enjoyed Karen White's Charleston series. I'm looking forward to reading and discussing Truly, Madly!

Re: Welcome to Sneak Peek: Romance!

Hi, this will be my first time with First Look/Sneak Peek. I'm not usually into paranormal romance but this sounded like a fun read. I started reading romance about a year and half, two years ago - not sure if I have fave romance authors, but I've read a lot of Lisa Kleypas historicals and I liked both Julie James contemporaries so far.

Re: Welcome to Sneak Peek: Romance!

I tend to read different types of books for a while and then get sick of that genre and switch to another type.  I've been reading mysteries or chic lit lately so a good romance will be great.  I like the First Look and now this Sneak Peek type book clubs because it opens my eyes to different authors.  I've found a few authors that I really like and will buy another book should they write something again.

Re: Welcome to Sneak Peek: Romance!

Hi everyone, I got confirmed and have been waiting for a thread on First Look.  Duh, tonight I searched by the title of the book and found you all. 

 

I like to read a variety of authors and this book sounds like a fun(ny) one.  I think it is going to be a great change after the intensity of The Postmistress.

 

If you need me, I'll be waiting for the brown truck.  It's raining hard here in Washington and I don't want Truly, Madly to get all wet.

Re: Welcome to Sneak Peek: Romance!

Melanie_Murray, When will the books for Sneak Peak be coming. I am anxious to read this book. I have never read anything by this author.

 

It looks good.

 

Any news one when the Add Product feature will be fixed. I miss this so much. I love seeing the covers on our posts.

ARCs should be going out this week, ReadingPatti. And there's no word on the Add Product button, but I will try to find out what the timeline is for its return.
