  1. I just finished “The Kitchen Shrink” and I loved it! Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it and laughed with it. It reminded me of one of my friends.

    • Dear Pattie–I can’t thank you enough for taking time to not only read The Kitchen Shrink but to write a note that you liked it! I love hearing from people who actually “got” it! Thank you again and Happy Holidays! (Reviews on Amazon also help new authors connect with other readers, she says with all the subtlety of a sledge hammer:( sorry!)

      • Dear Pattie, I am feeling a little guilty over here–but THANK YOU so much for your kind review! They really do help. I am so glad you found The Kitchen Shrink and liked it! Evanevichish–Priceless!! Thank you again and Happy Holidays!

    • Hi Alana–I’m so glad you like The Scent of Jade–I had a lot of fun with that…and I did leave the door open for a second book! (Right now I’m working on my newest novel, Haole Wood, set in Maui…due out next year) AND, (shameless pitch, so sorry!) if you get a chance, I hope you check out Ros! Thanks for your note–take care! Dee
