I’m in Venice, working as an apprentice to the doge’s chef. The chef, or Maestro, knows something about the secret book the doge wants to get his hands on – and is willing to kill for. I’m only interested in the book for the love potion recipe I hope is inside. (The Book of Unholy Mischief)
I’m also in Utah, where I live with my husband, Mike, and our three kids. My new friend, Felix, who just happens to be a British actor and Hollywood heart-throb, is visiting. (The Actor and the Housewife)
I’m also on the road from California to Massachusetts. My daughter is with me. I’m running from my husband – and myself. (Songs of the Humpback Whale, Jodi Picoult – on audiobook)
