Dear Reader,From the time I started writing novels, romantic comedies have particularly appealed tome
especially those involving matchmakers and arranged marriages. These classicromance plots are longtime favorites of mine (and I know lots of other writers and
readers like them, too). Here, in this volume, are two I think you’ll enjoy.
First Comes Marriage was written in 1991 and features what you might call a
“Grandfather knows best” scenario.
Wanted: Perfect Partner, on the other hand, is a
story about a single mother with a teenage daughter who’s sure
she knows best
or atleast better than her mom. (If yo
u’ve had or currently have teenaged children, you’ll be
familiar with this situation!)
As the title suggests, both stories take place in a city I know well, with streets I’ve often walked and places I’ve visited. Seattle is a setting I love for that reason
Although I’ve gone on to write many romantic comedies, these two stories still bring me
great pleasure and make me laugh
even after all these years. Everyone can use an
excuse to smile, and I hope that’s what you do when you read them.
