This weekend is the Susan Elizabeth Phillips Tea at the Adolphus Hotel here in Dallas. This has been brought to Dallas by Fresh Fiction and DFW Tea! I have said this a thousand times but I am so lucky to live in such a Romance Book loving city. I am always excited when these type of events role into town.
This tea is for her new book Call Me Irresistible which we will all get a copy of on Sunday.
R.S.V.P. to the most riotous wedding of the year . . .
Lucy Jorik is the daughter of a former president of the United States.
Meg Koranda is the offspring of legends.
One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible—Ted Beaudine—the favorite son of Wynette, Texas. The other is not happy about it and is determined to save her friend from a mess of heartache.
But even though Meg knows that breaking up her best friend’s wedding is the right thing to do, no one else seems to agree. Faster than Lucy can say “I don’t,” Meg becomes the most hated woman in town—a town she’s stuck in with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom. Broke, stranded, and without her famous parents at her back, Meg is sure she can survive on her own wits. What’s the worst that can happen? Lose her heart to the one and only Mr. Irresistible? Not likely. Not likely at all.
Though I am very excited to meet Mrs. Phillips; the tea itself should be scrumptious!
