MAY is here. Did you hear?


Hello, my dear readers!

May is here and did you hear? Surviving Savannah is a MAY Book A Million BOOK CLUB CHOICE! IN-STORE EVENT: May 16, 2022, 6 PM CT @ BAM Montgomery, AL. I do hope you join us on this journey and possibly even show up to a live event?

And you know how I know summer is near —

MKA’s new book is out TODAY!


My dear friend, FRIENDS & FICTION sister, and the Queen of the Beach Reads herself, Mary Kay Andrews, is celebrating the launch of her 30th novel, THE HOMEWRECKERS! It’s in stores everywhere this week and I just know you will love it as much as I did. THE HOMEWRECKERS is quintessential MKA. There’s a strong female protagonist you’ll love to root for. There’s an incredible setting in Savannah & Tybee Island that bursts to life off the page. She goes back to her mystery roots by including an unsolved murder that’s haunted the community for decades. There’s lots of laughs, a love story, even a dog. And, in true MKA form, there’s also a historic beach cottage renovation at center stage. The early reviews have been glowing with Booklist calling it “a perfect summer escape,” and Kirkus calling it “a fun story with twists and turns that will appeal to romantics and cold-case fans alike.” According to Publishers Weekly, “Andrews sparkles in this fast-paced tale…fans will eat this up.” And Mystery & Suspense proclaims, “Mary Kay Andrews has done it again!” MKA is headed out on a big book tour with stops throughout the Southeast plus THREE Friends & Fiction Live events with me, Kristin & Kristy in Cleveland on May 4th, at the Jersey Shore on May 20th, and in Rehoboth Beach on July 21st (ticketing link coming soon!). I hope you’ll pick up THE HOMEWRECKERS today and see MKA on tour if you can. And if you love the book like I did, leave a review on GoodReads or on any book retail site. Early orders and reader reviews mean so much to all of us as authors.
