Right now Mom is in the middle of Savor the Moment, the third novel in Nora Roberts's Bride Quartet series. Vows, the wedding business featured in the series, is composed of four single women. I'm just guessing that by the end of the series, sparks are going to fly quadruply. Book three focuses on the pastry chef. Her wedding cakes are to die for, and apparently, so is the hunky lawyer she's eyeing.
We first talked a bit about Ann Patchett's State of Wonder. I told her what a wonderful event we had, and then Ellen, who does the events at Porter Square, chimed in that their event was also wonderful. Mameve was sad that she wasn't able to attend the Cambridge event. I told her that I've had folks all week telling me how sad they were that they couldn't come to our Patchett event in Milwaukee.
In the end, I decided that I had too many books piled up to buy either at Porter Square, though I did pick up a half dozen postcards. A big compliment to them--I thought there displays looked terrific! In the end, I am responsible for a book purchase at Porter Square--I convinced Mameve to buy a copy of How Rocket Loved to Read, after hearing how much she liked It's a Book.
Mameve Medwed is the author of several novels, most recently Of Men and Their Mothers. Her appearance was one of our first events at Boswell. Good times!
