Thanks to all my wonderful readers for taking the time to write and tell me how much you loved THE PRIVATE CONCIERGE. Your kind words always brighten my day, but these were especially appreciated.
Several of you picked your favorite characters from the book and I’m happy to say the hero, Rick Bayless, won handily. He even ranked as “my favorite of your heroes” with many of you! However, Rick did have a bit of competition from the freeloading mouse that stole almost every scene he was in, aka, the “devil mouse.” Lane Chandler, the story’s rags-to-riches heroine, got her fair share of mail too. Blessings on all of you who wrote to say how much you loved Lane.
Romance Reviews Today had this to say about THE PRIVATE CONCIERGE:
“Fast, suspenseful, and with a touch of romance, this book has everything. A perfect 10 rating.”
And here’s an excerpt of a Five Star review from Amazon.com:
“Suzanne Forster's THE PRIVATE CONCIERGE is a masterpiece of craftsmanship, combining a subtle, unfolding web of suspense framed by passions revealed beneath the persona, of pasts emerging to haunt the present. THE PRIVATE CONCIERGE is a work of suspense that both chills and warms the reader's heart.”
BEA AND THE LATEST BOOK AND MOVIE NEWS!
What do New York, Manhattan in June, and Book Expo have in common? Me!! At the request of my publisher, I went to Book Expo this year, and it was an amazing trip for many reasons. First, I got to sign the advanced reading copies of THE LONELY GIRLS CLUB, my August release, at the Harlequin booth's Mystery Hour. And I also signed a sampler for the new Spice Imprint that included my launch novel, TEASE.

THE SPICE LAUNCH NOVELS!
I've now seen the artwork for all four of the Spice novels coming out in 2006, and they are beautiful beyond my wildest expectations. They're sensual and sleek and provocative without being graphic in any way. Just gorgeous. My novel, TEASE, is artfully simplistic, yet so clever I could only whisper "Wow" when I saw it. If you missed it on the Home Page, go back and take a look. It's the third cover in rotation.
The Spice imprint launches in May 2006, and you won't want to miss it!
