Mary Kay Andrews books are transformative. When you’re done with them, you think twice about your life decisions, and you feel as if you’ve found long-lost sisters. She takes you down the back roads of America — to little towns and places where traditions and secrets run deep, and friendship runs even deeper. Her heroines are the kind of women I want to be — brave, able to deal squarely with their problems (okay it might take a few chapters) and move in new directions.

But if you’re as much of a fan as I am — you might notice that there is always an element of suspense or mystery buried within the pages of her novels. Well, the reason is finally made clear as Kiss and Thrill reveals that Mary Kay is also mystery writer Kathy Hogan Trocheck. What a scoop! Take that all you fancy reporters at CNN. <smile> And an even more recent scoop — Mary Kay just bought her dream house, Ebbtide, the one that was featured in her book Summer Rental!
I love Mary Kay’s dual identity more than I can say, because I also write both suspense and women’s fiction and can tell you, Mary Kay is exactly who I want to be when I finally grow up.
Today we’re giving away as prizes TEN COPIES of her newest women’s fiction novel: Spring Fever — a fab read I know you’ll enjoy. Don’t forget to leave a comment or ask a question to be entered! Mary Kay is going to try to stop by and answer as many as possible.
(Please make sure you contact us within ten days of us posting the winners or you’ll forfeit your prize. Chances of winning depend upon number of people entered. Winners will be chosen from those that leave comments today and tomorrow at both Kiss and Thrill and Diana Belchase’s website, and you are invited to post comments on both sites for an extra chance to win.) Good Luck!
