A Little Late?

With the temperatures (finally) warming up and the snow melting here in the Midwest, I was able to get to a task we've sorely neglected. We were finally able to get the Christmas lights off of the bushes yesterday! We haven't turned them on since early January, but there's been too much snow around to take them down. So it was definitely nice to take care of that chore. We also finally took down the large wreath from the side of our garage. March 14 might be the latest we've ever gotten to these tasks, but looking around the neighborhood, we aren't the only ones behind this year. Many a house still sports a wreath in some place. I guess winter took us all by surprise this year.

And although I'm enjoying the nice temps as spring approaches, my mind is really on the hot, humid weather of the Caribbean. Next week at this time we'll be boarding our cruise ship and sailing off for a seven-night cruise to the Southern Caribbean. We'll be visiting St. Thomas, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, and Tortola. And although I've used a cruise and tropical destinations as the setting for a book already, I'm thinking I might be inspired again to revisit the islands for a story.

Until next time,

Happy Reading!


Wild Wedding Weekend - available from The Wild Rose Press

All Abby Walker ever wanted was to live a normal life in her small suburban-Chicago house. After traveling around the world in her youth, staying put in one spot is a dream come true. But when she winds up on a game show as a favor to a friend, her life takes an adventurous turn she isn't at all prepared for.
Noah Grant has put his small-town Indiana roots behind him. He travels all over the world, enjoying the freedom and adventure. He has no intention of settling down anytime soon, if ever. But then he finds himself married to Abby in a bizarre quirk of fate, and he realizes his life will never be the same. Their passion flares as hot as the sultry Caribbean air. But is passion enough to turn their Wild Wedding Weekend into a lifetime of love?


  1. Have a great time in the Caribbean, Debra! It does sound like an inspiring place for a romance!

  2. One of my favorite places to visit! Be sure to take a few excursions - soooo much fun!!
