#Second Chance Romance

How to Keep a Husband for 10 Days by Jessica Hatch

When Lina’s oldest friends unexpectedly announce they’re coming to stay, she has to think fast. No one knows she and her husband Brown are breaking up and, if their friends find out, she knows they’ll take sides, and they’re just not ready for that. Surely they can pretend to be married for ten days? How hard can it be? Only... what started as faking a marriage is starting to feel like the real thing. And while Lina can try to fool her friends, she can't fool her heart.

Jessica Hatch is also hosting a free workshop for writers this month. Do you have a completed manuscript (or a working first draft)? As a professional editor and a published author, she's uniquely equipped to talk about the editing process, hiring professionals, and how to go about querying book publishers. Join us for "I've Written a Book... Now What?" on Saturday, February 18 from 10:15 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. at West Branch Library.
