I hope you enjoyed my story A Mystery for Marissa, Book 1 of The Monday Mystery Society.
Now here's Book 2, by my friend Giulietta Spudich.
The Right Kiss follows Janie, a dainty green-eyed young woman who may appear shy or even timid, but actually knows her own mind very well. If she always goes silent and withdrawn with attractive young men - well, it's because she's not interested. That worries her sometimes, but not enough to change her mind.
She's holding out for the one worth waiting for: the right man, the right time, the right kiss. And in the meantime, no one is going to push her around.
In her reserve, her natural elegance, and her quiet certainty about who she is and what she wants, she reminds me of Fanny Price in Jane Austen's Mansfield Park.
Lovely Book 2, Giulietta. Proud to share an anthology with you.
