Into each life a little rain must fall...

As readers of this blog will know, I was looking forward to flying out to Florida at the end of this week. Unfortunately, I have had to cancel due to my husband being ill. I was totally devastated, and as a writer I am ashamed to say, words to describe how I felt fail me. I was so looking forward to hugging my family.
Ah well, good things follow bad, you just have to believe that. I received a lovely review for Spanish Lies, and also saw it was the No. 2 best seller at Whiskey Creek Press.A little ray of sunshine on a dark, dark day.

"Review - Debra Gaynor for - 5 stars.

,Ginny was not happy when Luis came back into her life. It had been seven years since they had seen each other, and held each other in their arms. He wanted her to return to Spain, but the mere thought brought her pain. Nevertheless, she does return and secrets are revealed.

Margaret Blake offers readers a spine-tingling mystery. It is so obvious that Ginny and Luis have never stopped loving each other, but both have strong pride. Isabella was fun to dislike. Mrs Blake kept me on the edge of my seat as I eagerly turned the pages anticipating what would happen next."

Oh Margaret, I'm so sorry to hear this news about your trip. I know you must be so sad. I'm sorry, as well, to hear hubby isn't well. I'm sending good thoughts your way, hoping everything improves.

Will you be able to reschedule your trip?

Wonderful review! I'm so not surprised by it; you really are one of my favorite authors!

Hope you have a pleasant day. I'll bet Eddie is happy you're staying home with him. ;-)

Yes, Eddie is the only one glad not to be going into Cozy Cats, which surprises me as I would not mind staying there myself!

I doubt my husband will ever be able to travel to the States now, and as for me...who knows...but not in the forseeable future.

Thank you for your kind thoughts, I can feel them right now.

So sorry to hear about your husband's illness, Margaret. I pray he'll be okay.

Congratulations on the great review!
