Ladies Who Lunch

Ladies Who LunchIt’s not that they live in an urban setting, my female characters, with upscale restaurants and trendy bistros. Or even a pleasant suburb, with cute coffee shops and delightful little delis. That’s what you think of when you hear the expression, “Ladies Who Lunch.”

No, these gals live in rural areas, for the most part…pretty countryside, but not noted for fine dining. They work. They wear jeans. They ride horses.

And they eat lunch together quite a bit. Well, maybe not lunch exactly but they do get together for an early dinner sometimes, after a particularly stressful day. They like to go to Vermillion, a restaurant mentioned several times in Book 1, Fool Me Once, and in Book 2, A Bitter Wind Blows. They spend quite a bit of time on each other’s porches, feet up on the railing, glass of wine in hand and snacks at their elbow. In Book 3, Signs of Life, life is pretty hectic and there’s quite a bit of take-out from local restaurants but no long lunches. But in Book 4, Ride A Pale Horse, the Cowboy Cafe′ at Riverwood is a well-patronized meeting place for a sandwich, a salad, or a cup of coffee and dessert.

Why all the emphasis on eating? Because dialog between the characters when they meet for a meal is a PERFECT way for them to ruminate (no pun intended) on a particular event and provide alternate viewpoints or elaborate on the situation, or convey information to the reader that isn’t apparent through the action….that’s why!

Have completed four Contemporary Fiction/Romance novels in The Riverwood Series. The first was released in August 2018; the second is under contract and in the process of edits. The third book and fourth books are in the queue. The fifth is now the current work-in-progress. The setting is Big South Fork, Tennessee which is known as "The Trailriding Capital of the Southeast" so these stories will all appeal to horse lovers who love to read books about horses.
