Secrets Behind The Best Girls Series
Blurb from Her Best Match, Book One of The Best Girls Series.
Feisty, stubborn, and bored with life in Texas, Anne Best is about to get more than she bargained for.
The lovely widow heads off to the Big Apple for a job interview, expecting no more than a few days adventure in New York City, only to find herself with a new job working for the most infuriating man she’s ever met.
Billionaire Steven Gherring is one of New York’s Most Eligible Bachelors, and he has every intention of staying that way. But Gram has other ideas. She’s on a not-so-secret campaign to find a wife for her grandson.
As fearless as she is clumsy, Anne tackles every challenge (including her new boss) enthusiastically, with two lone exceptions… public speaking and recognizing her own feelings. Passions rise along with hemlines as Gram joins forces with Anne, a veteran matchmaker, to find the perfect match for Steven.
If you like Hallmark movies, you’ll love The Best Girls!
The Best Girls is a sweet romantic comedy series, currently made up of a free novella prequel and four novels, set in New York City and chronicling the romantic adventures of Texas native, Anne Best, her two daughters, Emily and Charlie, and their friends. Today, I’m going to let you in a few secrets about the characters.
All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental
You’ve probably read that disclaimer a thousand times in various fictional books. But do you want to know a secret? The characters in The Best Girls Series are real! Let me introduce you.
Anne Best is me. Okay, she’s a bit younger and a lot more outgoing. But she’s the same clumsy, matchmaking, competitive woman with a degree in Chemistry and two grown daughters. Steven Gherring? He’s my sweet, thoughtful, intelligent romantic husband, with a bigger bank account and slightly-more-visible six-pack abs. The two daughters, Emily and Charlie, are eerily similar to my own daughters, and our relationship is pretty identical to that of Anne and her girls. In fact, my daughters once called my cell and left a message. Hi Mom! This is Emily! This is Charlie! How are things going in New York City? We can’t wait to come visit you.
What about Gram? She’s this funny, quirky, fireball widow from my church. You should meet her, she’ll keep you in stitches.
I’ve got a son-in-law named Spencer. He’s tall, handsome, and athletic, and my daughter was the first girl he ever kissed. (How sweet is that?)
Now Brad, Josh, Grace, Olivia, Claire and Hannah aren’t walking around in flesh and blood, but they are just as real to me as all the others. Here’s another little secret. I wrote the entire Best Girls Series, chapter by chapter, giving it to the girls at my office as it was written. We talked about those characters every day, laughing and crying together over every page. So all of those people became a part of my life, intertwined with the lives of my physical friends.
Now, if you read about The Best Girls, you’ll know the inside story. Y’all come on over to Texas and visit. We’d love to have you!
