For whatever reason, I often untie a story knot if I'm on a 3-4 mile walk through the wooded park near my house. Second, research. If I get stuck, I'll research more about my character's profession or other particular trait, and often I'll learn something that will take me in a new direction. (less)

I’ve just returned from a whirlwind trip to London. In three and a half days, I squeezed in sight-seeing all around the city, plus trips to the Cotswolds, Bath, and Stonehenge. Suffice to say, my Fitbit got quite the workout!


Those of you who have been following this blog (or, more particularly, my Goodreads reviews) know of my love for historical romance. Well, this trip made me feel as if I’d...

Julia Quinn is one of my few auto-buy authors. I adore her witty, light humor, and am typically unable to put her books down once I start one.

This book, while rife with her trademark writing, did not quite engage me the same way. Initially I

“Most people aren’t living. They’re planning, remembering, or regretting.”
Jamie Beck, In the Cards

“too long, and too many mistakes, to figure out the person granting forgiveness gets the greater reward: freedom from prolonged grief.”
Jamie Beck, Worth the Wait

“years he’d picked her up or dropped her off here. It looked exactly as he remembered it, but everything else about this moment felt different. Charged. He rang the doorbell, and she appeared a minute later. Unlike her typically loud clothing, today she wore a conservative nude-colored dress with a scalloped hemline. Its feminine lace overlay had the barest hint of metallic sheen. Her arms extended from the cap sleeves, and the fabric gathered at the waist before dropping to her midthigh. The back had a peekaboo opening, making him ache to touch her bare skin. She wore platinum sandals and pinned her hair up into a simple French twist, which hid her fresh scar.”
Jamie Beck, Worth the Wait

I don't know that I ever saw or replied to this notice. Now it is months later! Sorry. Sometimes I stay away from GR for chunks of time. I love it as a reader, but it can be a little harsh when you see a bad review! LOL Anyway, I appreciate your note and hope you enjoyed ITC as well as WTW. I'm busy writing more books for all my series, so hopefully I can continue to keep you entertained. Thanks for writing!
Jamie
