Once upon a time, when Juli was about 2 years old or so, someone new started coming to our moms' group. Her name was Patty, and she had super-short-almost-buzzed hair, and the most adorable little boy. She was a very sweet woman who added a little spice to our conversations, and we all really missed her when she moved away.
One of the things that most amazed me about Patty though, was that she was a writer. A real published writer! She didn't announce the fact or brag, of course, but it just came out in conversation. I had never had a real writer for a friend before! (This was before I joined Inscribe)
I managed to find one of her books online in the used section of Chapters because it wasn't in the new section. The Woman at the Well is Patty's first book, I think. I loved it! It's a story about a character in the Bible who most people probably don't give a second thought to. But Patty brought her to life and gave her a history and a purpose beyond being just someone that Jesus met one day.
Patty has just released her newest book, Perfect on Paper.
"Anne Stanborough, a well known mystery writer, inherits her maiden aunt's book store, Perfect on Paper. The lawyer handling her aunt's estate is none other than the handsome Jake Harrison, but despite his attraction to the beautiful author, his painful divorce has made him wary of a marriage between two driven professionals. Anne can't let go of the career she's worked her entire life towards, and he isn't willing to make a second mistake in marriage. It looks like they should call the whole thing off until Anne discovers that her late maiden aunt might not have been so "maiden" after all… A love story from the past tugs this couple back together again, but will it be enough to prove that a love founded in God really can overcome anything? "
I don't know about you, but I really want to read this book! And I will once I get those centrepieces taken care of.
Lucky for you, you don't have to go find it in a book store, it's an e-book! Patty's writing will dazzle you. If you don't have a kindle, you can download a free version of the software from Amazon.
PS: The above opinions are mine alone and I was in no way compensated. I just think Patty is amazing, and so is her writing, so I wanted to spread the word to my lovely readers!
