Bed and Breakfast Blues

Avalon Authors usually posts an interview with an author with a recent or soon-to-be-released book on Wednesdays. Today's interviewee was supposed to be Susan Ralph. Unfortunately, I was unable to contact Susan, so I'll tell you a bit about her and her latest Avalon book, Bed and Breakfast Blues. (Don't you love that title? And have you ever seen a cuter cover!)

About our author:
Susan Ralph grew up in a small town in Michigan and now lives in a small town in North Carolina. She is married, a mother, and a grandmother. To date, she and her husband are four states short of reaching their goal of visiting every state capital and touring every state house.

Research, a small herb garden, traveling, and family keep her busy when she isn’t writing.

And now ... about Bed and Breakfast Blues:

Honey Benton is a twenty-eight-year old third-grade teacher who lives alone. Tired of wasting time with the wrong men and halfway through her voluntary year-long sabbatical from dating, she adopts Bowser, a rescue dog. Not only is her dog a loving and protective companion, he senses her moods and respects them. He has simple needs and is undemanding and very reliable. Now if she could just find a man with these attributes, her life would be complete.

Ace Sanford, who turns up at the wrong time, makes her knees tremble, and insists on getting his way all the time, isn’t that man. Yet he puts her commitment to her sabbatical to the test. Then, when he charms her dog into going over to his side, she knows she’s in trouble.

Susan has also written Bromton Manor and Starting From Scratch for Avalon.

Maybe some time soon we'll hear from Susan herself.
