Darlene Panzera is the winner of the “Make Your Dreams Come True” contest sponsored by Avon Books. The win led her novella, The Bet, to be published with Debbie Macomber’s Family Affair. The award-winning novella (chosen in a blind-read by Debbie Macomber) was then published as a full length novel retitled, Bet You’ll Marry Me. Born and raised in New Jersey, Darlene is now a resident of the Pacific Northwest where she lives with her husband and three children. When not writing she enjoys spending time with her family, two horses, and loves: camping, hiking, photography, and lazy days at the lake.
Reader review . . .
Rachel has a firm two-date rule, but when Mike the magician comes along, she finds herself breaking that rule. When he takes the job as driver of the Cupcake Mobile, they are thrown together on a regular basis, joining forces to fight the self-important French pastry chef who is trying to put the cupcake shop out of business. Has Rachel found true love, or will her magician disappear?
Awesome sequel to Sweet on You! Ms. Panzera knows what works and she is sticking with it. Short chapters that seldom drag, cute and/or appropriate quotes at the beginning of each chapter, and engaging characters combine to make another great novella.
