I'll be updating this page with news, reviews, and readings for any who may be interested.
And if you're wondering, hmmm, what is this Pick Me Up? Then here's a summary. Keep in mind that the book is hilarious. And the characters entirely loveable. And the cover pretty enough to act as stunning home decor. Also? The novel makes a way better gift than scented candles. No drippy wax or deathly fire to speak of.
“So funny! Izzy is a great character.”
--Sophie Kinsella, New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of a Shopaholic
For years, Izzy Duncan has dreamed of becoming NewYork’s hottest art dealer. Now finally, her goal lies just within reach. As the director of the Emerson Bond Gallery, Izzy’s expecting a whopping promotion—one she wants so badly, she’s almost afraid to hope for it.
Then Emerson Bond drops dead.
Suddenly, Izzy’s fabulously huggable boss Freddie, the adorable punk receptionist Kimmy, and devoted, well-meaning Izzy herself might all be out of a job.
The timing couldn’t be worse. Izzy’s childhood nemesis has a wedding coming up—and there’s no getting out of it. And Jamie, Izzy’s best guy friend, finds his greatest success as a newspaper columnist by advising all of New York to revive the age-old ritual of the pick-up line—which seems to work for everyone in the city except Izzy.
Izzy’s happiness and professional future now lie in the hands of two men: one, the new insufferable star artist, who can’t wait for any chance he gets to taunt Izzy mercilessly, but whose show will be her most crucial yet. And the other? The other is the new blood at the Bond Gallery, Avery Devon—the man so gorgeous, she can’t even speak to him. The man who, if she’s really, really lucky, will teach her all about the art of love—and not just in her dreams.
