I'd already started reading Wendy Wax's newly released novel, Magnolia Wednesdays, when I got word from my editor that she had not only consented to reading and perhaps writing an endorsement for my upcoming book, Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives, but that what she wrote was touching as well as enthusiastic. You can judge for yourself:
"Poignant and funny! Josie Brown's protagonist is strong,
resilient, and unflinchingly honest: she has all the skills she needs to
navigate the 'mean streets' of the gated community of Paradise Heights.
A great read!" —Wendy Wax, author Magnolia
Wow. Needless to say, I'm blown away.
Here I am, in the middle of Magnolia's Wednesdays, weeping for VIvien, a heroine who has lost everything–-her job, her relationship, what she feels is her identity, and yes, her self esteem–-to find out that Wendy also loved Lyssa, my heroine in Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives.
Magnolia Wednesdays is currently showcased on SingleMindedWomen.com. Just click the link, and you'll get to read an excerpt that shows you why I'm so excited to have Wendy's endorsement.
