Debs in Review! Romance Junkies gave GOOD THINGS a “4.0 blue ribbon” rating and a lovely review: “GOOD THINGS is a great book about a woman who finds herself when she loses everything .. I truly hope Ms. King will write a follow-up to GOOD THINGS because I already miss reading about these wonderful people.” Plus Curled Up With a Good Book called GOOD THINGS “smart and sassy … a delightful and engaging novel” and Candy Covered Books featured GOOD THINGS as a Flavor of the Month in March!
That’s Entertainment! Entertainment Weekly has reviewed Promise Not to Tell is this week’s issue – and Deb Jennifer is told that it is fantastic! If you live in a major metropolitan area, it should be on the stands now. If you live in a not-so-major metropolitan area (like Deb Jennifer!), it should be available Monday. (Hint: look for the Sopranos on the cover.)
