“Hey, Miss Maggie.”
“Hi darlin’. How you doing?”
Miss Maggie poured a cup of tea and placed it on the bar in the kitchen as I slid onto one of the stools.
“I’m great. I’ve just been sitting by the fire reading a romance. ”
“Then maybe you can help me. Since it’s almost February, I was wondering if you had any ideas about good romantic books that I could read?”
“Shoot, yeah. How about the oldie but goodie Pride and Prejudice, Dr. Zhivago or maybe the Sound of Music. Another that always gets me is Gone with the Wind. What’s not romantic about Rhett Butler?
Miss Maggie’s white curls bobbed as nodded. “I’ve read most of those. Got any more modern day ones that might be super romantic?”
“How about Shanna, The Perfect Hope, Flirting with Forty. Oh, this one is one I think you will really like. Love Comes Softly. Maybe Winter Sea. Or one written by my housemates, the Petit Fours and Hot Tamales!”
“I already know that those are romantic.” Miss Maggie chuckles.
“Thanks for the tea. I’m off to find another good book in the Library.”
Can you help Miss Maggie out with a romantic book recommendation? She’s a voracious reader and could use a long list.
