It's here!! The fourth book in the When Girlfriends...collection has arrived! I had so much fun writing When Girlfriends Chase Dreams. Claire Linley is one of the girlfriends who has really stolen my heart over the series; and seeing how my day job is working in the wedding floral biz, the theme and storyline for Claire's book just came so naturally.
It was one of those books where I really lost myself in the writing process for many consecutive days and hours and hours on end. It was the perfect book to tackle in November because...I set out to do NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for the first time in 2012 and this book, from start to finish, is my NaNo baby. 123,000-ish words in less than 4 weeks (plus several months of proofreading, editing, and fine-tuning), and When Girlfriends Chase Dreams is finally here for all you dear readers who have been patiently waiting. I hope you enjoy it!
So without further ado here's the synopsis for When Girlfriends Chase Dreams.
A novel about chasing dreams, for better or worse, and living your love story.
Claire Linley is finally a bride! After nearly ten years with her college freshman sweetheart, Claire is going to become Mrs. Conner Whitley. She’s got her bridal magazines, is the biggest Martha Stewart fan, and subscribes to all the major wedding blogs. She’s been dreaming of this moment for years! How could planning her dream wedding be anything but perfect?
The easy-going and bubbly type, Claire will obviously have a blast planning, and with her fantastic group of girlfriends-made-bridesmaids she just can’t go wrong. Whether it’s wedding gown shopping, makeup trials, or cake-tasting, Claire’s friends are there in a pinch.
But how big does the pinch get? All Claire wants to do is get married, but at every turn something seems to go awry and she’s starting to lose it. How is a girl supposed to remain cool and collected when the pricey dream wedding planner isn’t turning out to be so dreamy? When DIY projects and the perfect venue are going up in smoke? How is Claire supposed to marry Conner when the special day that’s supposed to join them together, forever, is slowly tearing them apart?
This is the charming story about how sometimes the biggest events in life are defined by the smallest acts of kindness and love. It’s a love story about dreaming large, loving deeply, and, in the end, truly having the happiest day of your life, no matter what happens (or doesn’t). About what happens when girlfriends chase dreams.
How about this cover? My husband (and fab cover artist) did a perfect job on this cover. It's 100% how I envisioned it. Love-love! What do you think?
And speaking of When Girlfriends Step Up...the ebook is a 99 cent bargain on Amazon today only. A little spring-is-here and there's-a-new-book-out treaty. :) Enjoy!
Happy Reading! And Happy Spring!!
