Have you been to San Francisco?

With: Shana Gray

Giveaway Alert!

Have you been to San Francisco? What about Napa Valley, or Muir Woods? If you haven’t, then I encourage you to pick up a copy of MEET ME IN SAN FRANCISCO.
It’s the second book in my Girls Weekend Away. The first book came out in July WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, THE NASHVILLE BET comes out in December and we have to wait until Valentine’s Day next year for A MATCH MADE IN MONACO.
I hope this little excerpt will make you want to read more! Links and giveaway info are below.
‘I don’t know how you managed to pull this off. Especially with my mom on her trip to Tuscany.’ Celia sat in the back seat of Bonni’s rented Mustang convertible and yelled loud enough for her friends to hear. ‘I think she’s hoping to find an old wreck of a chateau that she can renovate and then some hot young number will come along and sweep her off her feet.’
The girls all laughed and Bonni called back as she drove, ‘I know the movie you’re referring to. Maybe ladybugs will land on her.’
‘That doesn’t sound all bad, you know,’ Fredi, sitting next to Celia, said, her eyebrows raised. ‘I’d put up with doing a little home renovation if it means I wind up with a young Italian stud in my bed.’
Ava nodded in the passenger seat, her hair flying around her in the wind. ‘I can see the attraction.’
Bonni laughed. ‘Oh, please, Aves, you’d rather he sweep you off your feet than bang you against a wall.’ 
Waving her hand dismissively, Ava replied, ‘A good hero could do both.’ 
‘You guys are crazy. Didn’t you see that movie? There were snakes in the bedroom, bats in the belfry, no water. No guy is hot enough to put up with that crap.’ Celia shivered. 
Ava shook her head. ‘You say that now but, if you meet the right guy, your tolerance for “crap” will go up.’ 
‘Aww, come on, Ava, not every woman finds a Mr Right. You’re such a dreamer,’ Fredi scoffed. 
Celia met Bonni’s eyes in the rear-view mirror as Ava and Fredi re-started a very old argument. 
‘I can’t believe a woman who designs wedding dresses for a living can be so cynical about love!’ Ava exclaimed. 
‘When you have as many repeat customers as I have, you learn that “happily ever after” really just means “happy for right now”,’ Fredi shot back. 
Celia shook her head. ‘How in the hell did this convo go south so quickly?’ She saw Ava open her mouth to reply and kept talking, ‘Anyway, you guys are awesome for kidnapping me. I swear single moms should have a special holiday in the year.’
Ava pouted a little before her usual sunshine nature took over again and she offered support. ‘A single mom needs more than one holiday in the year, honey.’
‘Aww, thanks, sweetie.’ Celia leaned back. 
There was a beat of silence, and Celia’s gaze wandered to her friends. Each of them was so different, but they were so tightly knit as friends they almost felt each other’s emotions. In the driver’s seat, Bonni’s dark hair was pulled back in her usual ponytail, the wind whipping the strands around her. She shot a quick smirk to Ava, and Celia fancied she could see Bonni’s cop fa├žade just melt away. Her heart swelled with love for them all.
‘I’m glad you didn’t fight us on the kidnap plan.’ Fredi repositioned their purses between them.
‘I’m glad too! And, I do admit no kids, no drama, just us, sounds wonderful,’ Celia replied. 
Fredi snorted. ‘No drama? Since when is there no drama where we’re concerned?’


In the second warm, funny and romantic novel in the Girls' Weekend Away series, four best friends embark on the ultimate girls' getaway filled with hijinks and a sprinkling of romance. For any fan of Bridesmaids and Sex and the City and readers of Jo Watson, Lauren Layne, Joanna Bolouri and Cate Woods.

Are about to get wild.
As Celia rediscovers who she used to be and her relationship with Landon deepens, she begins to believe he's someone she can rely on. But Celia has been keeping a secret from everyone - if the truth comes out, will they play it safe or take a leap of faith?
