By Bernadette Bessette
Bonjour. I am Bernadette Bessette, Charlotte's grandmother. Charlotte, my sweet darling, is a cheese shop owner and she should be writing today, but she has granted me this day to share a tidbit or two.
And though it is my day to write about the people of Providence, Ohio, I have been in contact with the author, Avery Aames, and she has advised me that she would like me to dedicate this post to her friend, a fellow author, Kate Collins. Kate has suffered a recent tragedy. I will keep the details private. So much in life should be so, non? But Avery suggested that I tell you that Kate's latest book is out.
The title: Dirty Rotten Tendrils.
Avery loves Kate's character, Abby. Abby owns a flower shop and has a darling of a boyfriend and solves crime. She sounds like my granddaughter, non? But I digress. Pardonnez moi.
Please, if you will, honor Kate and purchase a book for a friend, for a librarian, or for someone in need. We are all readers. We love a good mystery. Why not share the fun?
Soon, I will return to this lovely blog, and I will tell you about my passion for the theater. Ah, you didn't know? Yes, I am not only the mayor of Providence, but I established Providence Playhouse. We put on, how do you say, eclectic pieces. What a thrill. The lights, the action, the humor, the drama. The world is our stage. Welcome to it.
