When I opened a small gift from my husband on Christmas morning, he delivered me the gift of a lifetime—a trip to Scotland! It was a tour that would take us all over the country, from manor to castle, pub to five-star restaurant, highlands to shore.
Immediately my thoughts turned to what to wear, so I asked my world-traveler friends for advice. They told me the weather there changes in a heartbeat; I’d better pack for all contingencies. So by the time Jim and I boarded our plane last month, excited about our itinerary, we had it covered. I was so organized I didn’t even pack a carry-on, just tucked a book and my make-up into my purse, and away we went.
Which would have made for a smashingly festive time if our luggage had ever caught up with us. I later read that our airline’s baggage system went haywire, and they misdirected thirty thousand pieces of luggage worldwide at that time. There I was, with the clothes on my back—I didn’t even have a pair of comfy walking shoes. And where our nifty tour took us, there were no shopping malls—do you know how hard it is to find a hair brush in the Scottish highlands? That there are no half-sizes in shoes over there? Jim and I spent fifty bucks to take a cab into a little town, where we felt like we’d struck it rich at the casino tables back home when we found underwear and a couple of pair of jeans. Our luggage made it back to Las Vegas about the same time we did. But at least the clothes in our suitcases were clean!
My traveling days are certainly not over, but I’ll pack smarter in the future and carry on life’s essentials.
If you’re in San Antonio on Wednesday, July 23, look me up at the Literacy Reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Marriott Rivercenter downtown. I’ll be wearing clean clothes and signing my latest novels, and all the proceeds will go toward literacy, locally and nation-wide.
Pinch me; I just found out as I write this that The Promise, Thunder Point Book #5, which just went on sale June 24, debuted at #1 on the New York Times list! Thank you all for scooping it up the first week of sales. I so loved the time I spent with Scott and Peyton and I think you will too! For those who missed my shout-out on The Promise in earlier emails, here’s what you can expect from my newest read:

The Promise

A widowed doctor and father of two, Scott Grant has a bustling family practice in Thunder Point. The town and its people have embraced them, and now Scott knows it’s time to move on from his loss. But as the town’s only doctor, the dating pool is limited—until a stunning physician’s assistant applies for a job at his clinic. Peyton Lacoumette considers herself entirely out of the dating scene. She’s already been burned by a man with kids, and she’s come to Thunder Point determined not to repeat past mistakes. When Scott offers her a job, at a much lower salary than she’s used to, Peyton signs on, but just for a three-month trial period while she explores other options.
It isn’t enough time to build a real relationship, never mind anything with lasting commitment. But love can blossom faster than you think when the timing is right, and this short visit just might hold the promise of forever.
Coming in September: Thunder Point Book 6: The Homecoming, on sale August 26. Slip both into your beach bag for summer reading!
