It is my honor and privilege to present to you the debut novel of my critique partner and friend, Georgiana Daniels. Table for One is an hilariously funny, touching, engaging read.
FROM THE BACK COVER: Successful stockbroker Lucy Brocklehurst hasn't had a date in four years. In a town where the ratio of single women to men is 7:1, she's determined to wait on God for the perfect mate--as long as it's the hot new youth pastor at her church.Lucy will do anything to get his attention, including volunteering for the youth group. Through a series of misadventures on the teen outings, Lucy finds herself falling in love with a kindhearted chaperone named Edgar Flowers. But when their relationship grows serious, Lucy discovers the lengths his recently widowed mother will go to in order to keep them apart. What starts out as harmless interference turns into an all out tug of war, with Edgar as the prize!Will Lucy crumble under the scrutiny of her would-be mother-in-law? Or can Lucy and Edgar's budding romance survive the schemes of his meddling mom?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Georgiana Daniels is the wife of a super-generous husband, and the mother of a teen and two tots. After graduating with a degree in public relations, she spent several years in the business world, but now has the privilege of staying home and working on the stories she loves. Table for One is her first book. When not writing, she spends her time burning up miles on the treadmill, blogging, and participating in ACFW and RWA.
MY REVIEW: Georgiana Daniels is absolutely FEARLESS when it comes to getting her heroine into pickles. Lucy is so funny, so sincere, and so like me it was scary. Her tongue gets her in trouble from time to time, and though her heart is in the right place, she often finds herself up to her neck in trouble. The character of Mrs. Flowers, while nearly pathological in her desire to keep her son from Lucy's clutches, evokes sympathy for her plight. I think you'll like this book, and, Georgiana, I'm so proud of you!
