Book Club - "The Ball's In Her Court" by Heather Justesen

This month, it was Jessica's turn to host book club. Growing up in Fillmore, she knew a gal who is now a published author by the name of Heather Justesen. Several months ago while we were in the city she mentioned these books and that she would like to choose one for book club. We checked a few stores, but couldn't find the 1st book. 

Jessica sent Heather Justesen an email asking her where we could find her books, including a note that I would like a copy too. A few days later Jessica came home to find a box in her mail. It was a copy of both books, for each of us. And they were autographed! We were both excited. 

The two books link together in that one of the minor characters in the first book, is the main character in the 2nd book. To avoid confusion, we read "The Ball's in Her Court." I couldn't put it down! It was so good. 

 As soon as I finished it, I read her 2nd book, "Rebound." Loved it!

Jessica is such a great hostess. She made chocolate dipped strawberries and raspberry cups and also served mini cupcakes. I was so stuffed from her treats that I skipped dinner that night. :)

Heather Justesen just released a 3rd book, "Blank Slate." She has been posting chapters on her blog each week and I am hooked. HOOKED I tell you. Its so hard waiting for the next week and the next post. I need to just buy the book, but I'm hoping I'll be able to go to a book signing and buy it there and have it autographed.

I bought the pdf file of the book this weekend on smashwords. I just couldn't wait any longer and I had a coupon so I got it for $1.49! I'll be finishing it soon and then I can loan it to you if you want!
