More years ago than either Lewis or I would care to admit, we worked at B. Dalton with a young lady named Jeanne Pickering. Jeanne was great to work with and delightful to be around, but after a short while she left B. Dalton to get married. Over the years we've occasionally heard about her through friends and relatives who are Accent on Books customers, and now, as Jeanne Adams, she will be appearing at our store to present her brand new first novel. It's a paperback original entitled, Dark and Dangerous, and if that title makes it sound like it's hot summer reading, that's because it is. It's a romantic thriller about a woman who finds herself needing the aid of a mysterious FBI undercover agent to protect her against her murderous ex-husband.
So join us at 6:00 this Friday to celebrate the joys of escapist reading and help us congratulate a former bookseller on her exciting new career. More on Jeanne can be found at her website, and more about our store events can be found at our website.
