So what’s it’s about?

Welcome to Whitetail, Wisconsin, future home of Weddings that WOW!

As acting mayor, Annika will do anything to revive the economy of the town that’s been her refuge ever since her art career imploded and her fiancé walked out. Even if it means crashing an engagement party to talk business with the bride’s billionaire father. But the evening starts with a kiss from a gorgeous stranger-and ends with a night in jail.

Finn Callahan can’t believe his sister is getting married, not after their parents’ disastrous track record. And he’d rather be anywhere than working from his family’s vacation home. Until he catches a leggy blonde sneaking in the window, and suddenly telecommuting for the season is very appealing.

Unable to resist their mutual attraction, Annika and Finn are soon mixing business and pleasure-just for the summer. Too bad Annika’s heart missed the memo about not falling in love…

Release Day for Runaway Groom!

RunawayGroom Today is release day for Runaway Groom, book 3 in my Wedding Fever trilogy! Cue the sound of champagne corks popping and fireworks exploding 😉

It’s also my 24th novel and it’s just as exciting as my first or perhaps even more so because now I have dear readers who know me and write me asking when the next book is coming out 🙂

I was thrilled to get an email from a reader with an advanced copy who said, “Dear Fiona, You are not helping my insomnia!”

She read Runaway Groom in one sitting 🙂

Just in case you don’t know what Runaway Groom is about, it features an Aussie guy on the run, a lawyer hiding out and a heap of well meaning people in Whitetail. It’s a stand-alone book BUT if you’ve read Saved By the Bride and Picture Perfect Wedding, you get to revisit with old friends too.

I have a Pinterest board so you can peek in and see the log cabin Amy and Ben are forced to stay in 😉

This is what the blurb says…..

Runaway Groom; Book three of Wedding Fever

Amy Sagar’s life is in ruins. Fired from her fast-track job and dumped by her double-crossing boyfriend, she retreats to Whitetail, Wisconsin, to lick her wounds and regroup. Meeting an impossible, sexy Australian isn’t part of her strategy for getting back on track.

Ben Armytage is running away. After being left at the altar and publicly humiliated, he’s taking his vintage motorcycle on an extended road trip from Argentina to Alaska. Having his journey interrupted by a breakdown and sharing a house with a curvy, redheaded lawyer in a town obsessed with weddings was never on his itinerary.

Though being stuck in a luxury log cabin isn’t really a hardship, living together with their broken hearts isn’t easy. When the attraction between Amy and Ben proves unstoppable, they’ll both begin rethinking their plans…

Early reviews have been very positive with readers giving Runaway Groom 4 and 5 stars!

Fiona Lowe always has a way of mixing comedy with a sweet, hot, romance, Runaway Groom was no exception.

 

“I absolutely loved Runaway Groom. Fiona writes a wonderful romance.”

It’s a big book of 99,000 words and you can grab it from every eBook store for around $3-$4. Here are some helpful links!

Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook

I hope you enjoy the Wedding Fever trilogy!

Making Lists and Checking them Heaps of Times….

In my house, December means a lot of things. First up, it’s officially summer and the pool is open and the solar on. Second, it’s the end of the school year so it’s time to be organizing book lists, new uniform and computer choices for next year even before the holidays/vacation has even started. Thirdly, it is the Christmas season and on top of book lists I have present lists, food lists, and general job lists. Some of it sound familiar?

DSC00246This year, December means that Boy Wonder’s year in the bush is fast coming to an end and we pick him up on December 13th. Right now, he’s out in the heat on a six-day hike….glad it’s him not me carrying that heavy pack!  But the flip side is that he’s in an amazing part of the world. Don’t you agree?

OnTheRoadAgainCoverEmailThis time last year I was on a nine-day bike ride and like any author, I used my experiences and put them in a book!  Well, a short story, really. On The Road Again is the result. So if you have a thing for hot docs, motorcycles,  summer heat and a happy-ever-after, it’s the perfect size read for this busy, crazy time of year.

You can easily read it before bed, or while you’re standing in line to pay for those gifts you’re buying, or waiting for your kid to get let out of sport practice/music lessons.

(Caveat, the romance part didn’t happen to me although my husband did pitch the tent for me each night 😉 )

On the Road Again is 99 cents and available at  Amazon Kindle, SmashwordsNookiBooks USAiBooks AUS

And, as it’s December, my website is decorated and all up to date with Christmas recipes and the complete set of books from my Wedding Fever trilogy. They’d make a great gift idea. 🙂

Meanwhile, I best get back to reading the catalogues and trying to find a gift for my hard-to-buy-for brother-in-law. Who do you find it hard to buy for?

Cover Reveal for Runaway Groom!

Life Potters On…my week in review

I’ve had a huge week and another one coming. Last Tuesday, Boomerang Bride became an Amazon best-seller, hitting #4 in the entire Kindle Store. Color me both stunned and stoked. 🙂

This excitement was followed by a lovely weekend. We had aRIMG0043 dinner at Boy Wonder’s school. It was a cold, wet night with hints of snow in the air but the warmth in the dining hall  was wonderful.  The choir started singing beautifully and then there was a flash-mob 🙂  Lots of fun!

We visited friends and caught up with the “real” Maggie-May, the go-getter dog in Picture Perfect Wedding and then we came home for a rest!

The Australian Romance Writers’ Conference
was on this weekend and although Newborn Baby for Christmas didn’t take out the R*BY in the Short novel category, another medical romance did ! I am so excited for friend and fellow author, Emily Forbes. Doesn’t she look fab here?

On Thursday, I head off to New Zealand to attend their romance writers’ conference. I haven’t been to New Zealand in thirty years so I’m looking forward to it although I do have a degree of trepidation. The conference is being held in “Wobbly Wellington;” there have been two earthquakes there recently. Yikes!

I’m looking forward to meeting with editors and authors and refilling my writing well.

I just have to pace myself! What conference survival tips do you have
