Lucy McConnell

I met Lucy McConnell (aka my dear friend Christina Dymock) as we were signing books at The Book Table. All I can say is - kindred spirits. I instantly wanted to be her friend and she has been an amazing support to me for the past two years. I just adore her and it doesn't hut that I love each of her books, especially her Billionaire Bride series (read it, you will be in heaven).

Award-winning and Bestselling Author Lucy McConnell

Lucy McConnell has always been a reader and a writer. Her mom says that when she was little she would staple pages together to make books. Even at a young age she was thinking about page count. :) Once she's started a first draft, it consumes her thoughts until it's done. Lucy loves Christmas and was part of the Christmas in Snow Valley Anthology that led to Summer in Snow Valley and she's currently working on the Spring in Snow Valley Anthology. Her series, Billionaire Marriage Brokers, has reached number one in seven categories on Amazon and her cookbook, The Hungry Family Slow Cooker Cookbook, written under the name Christina Dymock, won the Utah Best of State Award.

On the Lighter Side

Here are five fun facts about Lucy and her Echo Ridge story:
  1. She has naturally curly hair. You wouldn't know it from her author photo-but her curl is something to reckon with.
  2. She hides York Peppermint Patties in her desk drawer.
  3. She sews her own dresses and skirts.
  4. Her 7 year old can ski better than she can--but she'll keep trying.
  5. She's a compulsive baker.

Snippet

Here's a sneak peak and Lucy's book, The Candy Counter Heiress:

Reese had a hard time holding up her end of the kiss because she couldn’t stop smiling. And what woman wouldn’t smile when she felt irresistible? Andy did that for her. Not just by kissing her, but by saying the words she needed to hear.

Robyn, a friend and Kenworth’s employee walked by and whistled, and then Andy was smiling as big as she was. 

“Okay. I’m really going this time.” He brushed his lips across her cheek but didn’t let go of her. “You’d better.” Reese hooked her hands together behind his neck and pulled him in for another tummy-sizzler kiss. 
“I’m headed for the door,” said Andy, never releasing his hold. 
“Don’t forget your tie,” replied Reese, hanging on just as tight and returning his kisses between words. 
The bell sounded, signaling the opening of the store. Reese slid her hands down Andy’s neck and chest. She let them rest there for several seconds, enjoying the feel of his chest against her palms, before gently pushing him back, if only so she could catch her breath. Andy allowed her to put a few inches between them. 
“Sorry,” he said, though his grin didn’t look at all apologetic or chagrined for instigating the most scandalous PDA Kenworth’s had seen in quite some time. Pressing his lips to her forehead, he pulled his arms back and started walking away backwards. 
“I’m going to buy this tie.” He held up the red one. 
Reese shook her head. “Nope.” 
Andy looked down and switched hands. “This tie. And then I have a meeting, and you’re closing tonight and working tomorrow morning, so I will see you at six at your apartment.”
“I’ll be ready.” Oh boy, would she be ready. Andy wasn’t going to know what hit him
