Washington Loves Readers Luncheon - Spotlight on Lisa Dyson

Reminder: I have a special giveaway to celebrate June at this link.

The Washington Romance Writers (WRW) are hosting their annual Reader Luncheon (link) on Saturday, October 8, 2016. I look forward to meeting Lisa Dyson:

Before she stayed home to raise her three sons and volunteer for every sport and activity her children participated in, Lisa worked as a medical assistant and a secretary/administrative assistant. She grew up in a small eastern Pennsylvania town and now lives a short distance from Washington, DC, with her husband and rescue dog with a blue tongue, appropriately named Blue. She has three grown sons and a daughter-in-law, as well as four adorable grandchildren. When she's not writing, reading, or spending time with family, she enjoys travel, volunteer work, and rooting for her favorite sports teams.

Lisa's latest book is RESORTING TO THE TRUTH:

In love we trust…

She may have found the twin sister she never knew she had…but Charlotte Harrington also lost her mother. And now she’s lost her artistic inspiration, too. Escaping to a lush tropical resort is her best shot at getting something of her own back again. She just needs to focus and somehow not let Sam Briton's guarded smile distract her.

Managing a hotel and single fatherhood puts plenty on Sam’s plate, Charlotte gets that. And the suspicion in his deep blue eyes can only lead to big-time trouble for a woman who struggles with the truth. So why is she driven by the need to convince him that love is worth opening his heart?

I am giving away a book choice from my convention stash. To enter the giveaway,

1. What "lush tropical island" would you like to escape to? As much as I love Hawaii, I'd like to explore more islands in the Caribbean.

2. Comments are open through Saturday, June 25, 10 pm in Baltimore.

3. I'll post the winner on Sunday, June 26.

  1. I don't think I'd turn down any chance to visit any island - Sicily, Galapagos, or Mediterranean would be on the top of my list.

  2. Tahiti is at the top of the list.

  3. I would like to visit an island in the Caribbean.

  4. Thanks for the shout out, Kim! I'm looking forward to the WRW Reader event in October, especially because my next book will be available! PRINCE CHARMING WEARS A BADGE is a twist on the Cinderella story. I just posted the cover on my Facebook page today!

  5. Maybe Sicily. I know it's crazy but I really don't have a particular island in mind.

  6. I've never been to any, so all of them in the Caribbean sound fabulous to go to!

  7. Either Hawaii or the Bahamas.

  8. After weeks like this one, I don't think I'd care which lush island, just so long as I could escape!

  9. To Hawaii, where we went on our honeymoon.
