It’s release day for A Midnight Feast, a book that could be subtitled the Mitch and Margie Thanksgiving angst-fest. So of course I made Jello to celebrate, specifically this simple orange fruit salad. Even though it was a pain to get out of the mold (the same one I’ve used before), it turned out very pretty. (Note to Jello aficionados: plastic molds are awful.)
Enough about the food, though; what about the book?
On my own or with Genevieve, I’ve never written a character who elicited as much fan response as Margie Dunsford. “When will she leave her husband and get an HEA?” began many emails and Tweets.
But did she have to leave Mitch? As we filled in their backstory, we found twenty years of frustrations resentment, passion, laughter, misunderstanding, and, eventually hope. So that was the story we told: about rediscovering love and reimagining a marriage.
Happy reading, and also happy holidays.
