New Book Release - When Mike Kissed Emma

Book Cover

The book written by fellow Catholic blogger Chris from New Jersey, was released today.

Christine Marciniak

I received my copy directly from the author herself last week and I finished it a few days ago. I must say I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the books I read when I was a teenager by authors such as Rosamond du Jardin and a few others whose names escape me at the moment, who wrote specifically for teen age girls. They wrote innocent books of young love and so does Chris.

The story was clever, clean and actually brought out emotions I was not expecting. There are characters I liked a great deal and some I really did not like at all. I attribute those emotions to charactistics of a good writer.

Another thing I liked about the book is that it takes place in one of my favorite states...New Jersey and it has a Catholic theme running throughout the story line.

Well done Chris. Will there be a sequel :-)

Thanks so much for the kind words, Esther. I'm delighted you enjoyed the book.

And Mary B, rest assured this is a book I was not worried about letting my 12-year-old read.

Mimi, I hope you like it!

Sorry I didn't comment sooner, it was difficult when I didn't have access to a computer on vacation!
