Sweetest review to date...

I received an email yesterday from a reader, who commented, "Some books are over too soon, but Handbook is substantial. It has kept me reading for quite a while, which sort of feels like I got my money's worth, except that it has nothing to do with money.

It's more like I have the feeling that this is something you made, like a really nice pie with a lot of fruit.

Thank you for releasing this book into the wild."

Here is a raspberry pie that I made (fresh-picked Cape Cod raspberries) with homemade crust.

Thank you to Ralph for the "sweet" review. I love hearing from readers. It really makes me feel good to know that people understand and love my characters.


  1. So sweet! I now have a new fantasy of having my future books compared to pie! You rock, Michele!

  2. The fruit-and-pastry scale of book intensity is intended to be used sparingly, only on suitable occasions. Handbook is a powerful pie.
