I have discovered so many new books and authors through

My latest discovery is by Tia Williams.

After reading A LOVE SONG FOR RICKI WILDE, have bought another Tia Williams book. I'm pretty sure I'll be reading everything she's written.

 If you enjoy a little magic in your reading, this might appeal to you. Ricki Wilde is a fun, lovable, artistic, free spirited character. I wish she lived next door. We learn a lot of fascinating Harlem history through her. And Miss Della is the older woman we should all be lucky enough to know.

Oh, and did I mention sexy . . . This is a verry sexy novel.  

(Grand Central Publishing, February 2024)

"One florist. One pianist. One love story…
One hundred years in the making.

Ricki Wilde has many talents, but being a Wilde isn’t one of them. As the impulsive, artistic daughter of a powerful Atlanta dynasty, she’s the opposite of her famous socialite sisters. Where they’re long-stemmed roses, she’s a dandelion: an adorable bloom that’s actually a weed, born to float wherever the wind blows. In her bones, she knows that a more exiting life awaits her, elsewhere.

When a regal nonagenarian, Ms. Della, invites her to rent the bottom floor of her Harlem brownstone, Ricki jumps at the chance to escape her family—and realize her dream of opening a flower shop. And just beneath the surface of her new neighborhood, the music, stories and dazzling drama of the Harlem Renaissance still simmers.

One evening in February as the heady, curiously off-season scent of night-blooming jasmine fills the air, Ricki encounters a handsome, deeply mysterious stranger who knocks her world off balance in the most unexpected way.  

Set against the backdrop of modern Harlem and Renaissance glamour, A Love Song for Ricki Wilde is a steamy, swoon-worthy love story of two passionate artists drawn to the magic of New York—and whose lives are irreversibly linked."

It's available for Pre-Order!
