Lilian Darcy has drawn the winner of her competition for a signed copy of CAFE DU JOUR and a CdJ t-shirt. I'll leave her to tell you all about it.
“I’ve chosen Jenilee Chua as the winner of a copy of “Café du Jour” and one of my “Café du Jour T-shirts. Of all the entrants, Jenilee, you were the only one who pick up that Dylan is a bit of a bad egg.
"Admittedly, it wasn’t easy to work it out from the excerpt! There’s no larger-than-life hero in “Café du Jour” – the book is much more about Susie dealing with turning points in her life – but by the end we can see that she’s going to be happy with the right man.
"On a more disappointing note, the UK editorial team for Mira Books has decided not to publish “Café du Jour” in the UK, despite all the positive feedback I’ve had, including that lovely review in the Melbourne Age. So UK and US readers, if you’re curious about the book, you’ll have to buy it via here at Harlequin Australia. The link is also on my website, with an excerpt and more details of the book.
"Liz, thanks so much for having me on your blog. As you know, “Café du Jour” is a real book-of-the-heart for me, and I’m really happy that your regular readers have had a chance to hear about it.”
Back to Liz...
Having read Cafe du Jour in the last week -- and I'll be blogging about it within the next few days -- I have to tell you that I'm deeply disappointed that it won't be issued in the UK, but I bought my copy here from Harlequin Australia as easily as I could have bought it from M&B here in the Britain, so don't let the distance put you off buying a really great book. They only list the books for a couple of months though, so don't put it off.
