Author   Brita Addams

A love that transcends time. 
Ever the explorer, Honey Danby discovers a treasure trove in her dusty 1910 London attic. Old trunks filled with clothes, journals, and love letters written between two lovers in 1810 entertain her and leave her longing for a time and a man long past. Dressed in an irresistible gown from one of the trunks, Honey discovers a heart-wrenching love story. When she learns that all was cruelly torn asunder, the handsome soldier’s loving words written to his H. catapult Honey into an adventure that defies logic. 
When, dressed in a crisper version of the gown, Honey inexplicably awakens inside a rumbling horse-drawn carriage, she discovers she shares the antiquated vehicle with the man who tore the lovers apart. Can she convince this stranger to forego his unreasonable demands, or will history repeat itself on a misty August morn in Green Park?

Interview with Rebecca Hunter

Why did you write this book?
When I wrote Caroline and Niklas’s first story, I didn’t plan on writing a second episode. But after getting the question, “What happens next?” from a reader, I thought it might be fun to explore what happens after their first happy ending.
The chemistry between Niklas and Caroline is clear from the beginning, but practically speaking, they have little in common, and their lives are pulling them in different directions. Stockholm Diaries, Caroline 2 is Caroline’s struggle to answer why they belong together.
But in writing this book, I thought a lot about the question in general: Why do two people belong together for the long haul? For me, a good relationship means both people actively help each other become their better selves—though sometimes the act of helping isn’t even conscious. But sexual chemistry and intimacy are also musts, both in books and in real life!
P.S. Fun fact: The setting for the first surfing scene in Stockholm Diaries, Caroline 2 is from my husband and my surfing honeymoon on Kauai… though the steamy details are fictional, of course! We have our own, private Stockholm Diaries romance insteadJ.
What is your favorite genre to read?
            For many, many years, I only read literary fiction—I was an English major! However, I went through plenty of periods where I felt too busy/too unfocused to invest myself in this kind of book, so I simply wouldn’t read at all. I picked up mysteries from time to time, but each time I’d think, “I don’t like reading about murder, victims and fear.”
            When I finally discovered the romance genre, my understanding of reading shifted. I didn’t have to invest as much time and thought into starting these books; the books pulled me in! Now, my favorite genre is steamy contemporary romance, but I read historical, paranormal, YA, NA… just about everything!
            I’m drawn to romance because I honestly believe that love trumps everything, both in romance stories and in life—this sounds little silly on paper, but I really believe it. Romance for me is about two imperfect people struggling to find each other as well as their better selves. These stories bring happiness and hope, which I can’t get enough of as a reader. I hope that readers to find those things in my books, too!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Ohhh… Derek Craven!
I think he makes the top of many readers’ lists, but for those not familiar with him, he’s the hero of Lisa Kleypas’s historical Dreaming of You. He’s the definition of rough-around-the-edges, so watching him struggle as heroine Sara breaks through his defenses creates a lot of tension. Something that really works in this book is the fact that the characters get together in the middle of the book, so we spend more time on the depth and intimacy of their relationship compared to many historicals.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
            Last summer, I started a series called Stockholm Diaries, Alice. The idea is four short episodes, set in three different cities, as this couple finds their way from a one-night stand to something more. I wrote the first story and then got caught up in other project… until I started getting comments from readers—“I can’t find the rest of these stories.” Oh no! Time to start writing them! Right now, I’m in the middle of their third episode.
            I’m also in the very beginning stages of co-authoring a short non-fiction idea on romance in Stockholm with Kim Golden, to be announced soon!
            When I’m done with these two projects, I’ll write Stockholm Diaries, Veronica, the story of Caroline’s best friend.

About the Book

Title The Clam Festival Murders
Genre Humorous Romantic Mystery
Book heat level (based on movie ratings G, PG, PG13, R): PG
Nothing ever happens in a small clamming town like Fatmire, FL. At least, that’s what Mitch Chase thinks until he teams up with eccentric mystery writer Cassie Wynn to solve a murder. Vicki Cash is found facedown in her seafood dinner after someone at the Clam Festival slipped her a deadly ingredient. Now Mitch and Cassie have to eliminate suspects, but that’s easier said than done. Vicki wasn’t exactly well liked. She took her ex-husband for everything he was worth, evicted the town’s most successful clam farmer, feuded with her sister, and bad-mouthed the mayor’s wife. As they investigate, Mitch discovers this small town isn’t what it seems, and he’s attracted to more than Cassie’s powers of observation. With his quirky and intriguing partner by his side, he’s sure to lose his heart while he catches a killer.

Introducing Cassie Wynn

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We’re happy to have you here today.
Name: Cassie Wynn
Age: Still a kid at heart
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Fatmire, Florida
Profession: Mystery Writer
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): Caucasian
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars. Hmm. Let’s see. I’m average height and definitely tanned, since I live in Florida. I weigh a little more than your average aardvark but definitely less than a Bighorn sheep, even after I put on the holiday pounds. I inherited my blonde hair from my mother, but my gray-brown eyes are a mixture from both of my parents. Mitch says my eyes twinkle a lot. Isn’t that sweet? 
Who is the significant other in your life? Mitch Chase. He just moved to Fatmire after leaving his job as a city crime reporter. I’m hoping he’ll decide to stay and become this town’s new PI.
Please tell us a little about yourself. I grew up in Fatmire, so I know all the local history and gossip. I write crime novels under my pen name, Dusty Zain, although for some reason, the bookstores keep shelving my work under humor. My first novel was X-Caliber, about a madman who keeps killing people with.34 caliber bullets.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Well, since I’m a writer, I have to say I’m pretty book-smart. I love to read, and I wind up doing lots of research for my work. Of course, since I do that research to learn new things on my own, I suppose that makes me self-taught, too. And because writing fiction leads to a diverse range of research topics, some might say I’m widely-experienced. So my answer is yes.
What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?
I plan to carry air freshener in my purse from now on. If you want to know why, you’re going to have to read The Clam Festival Murders. (It seems only fair that I plug Laurel’s book, since she and Kayelle let me mention mine).
How well do you know your neighbors?
I know my neighbors very well—even better than they’d like! I bought my parents’ house when they retired, so I’ve been in the same neighborhood almost all my life. The patio behind my side garden offers me a great vantage for watching everyone without being seen, and I’m also skilled at exchanging gossip. You wouldn’t believe all the hanky-panky that goes on around here, not to mention the murders. I was the one to find my neighbor Vicki keeled over dead with her face in her shrimp dinner. The smell was what first alerted me. Have you ever sniffed rotting seafood? PU.
What secrets do you know about people around you that you do NOT share?
Mostly I just keep my own secrets. For instance, do you want to know why I picked the pen name Dusty Zain? Well, I’m sorry, but I won’t tell you.
What would you like to tell your writer?
I am a strong, independent woman, but I have to say, I am very happy that you sent Mitch to me. He’s just like one of the heroes in my books: those shrewd blue eyes, that mind like a steel trap, and his mastery of subterfuge. It’s true his tenacity can slant toward stubbornness at times, but I can handle him.
