Holiday Q&A with HOPE RAMSAY author of LAST CHANCE CHRISTMAS @HopeRamsay @ForeverRomance

Book Description

September 25, 2012 Last Chance
Dear Reader,
I've been wishing for a miracle for my oldest boy, Stone, and this Christmas my prayers might just be answered! 

Her name is Lark, and she's here in Last Chance, looking into her father's past-and stirring up a whole mess of trouble without meaning to. As the chief of police, Stone sure has his hands full trying to keep up with her. Ever since his wife died, Stone's put everything into raising his daughters and dodging the Christ Church Ladies' Auxiliary matchmakers. And it's clear Lark has been through some trouble and could use a place to finally call home. I only hope Stone can let go of the past soon enough to keep her . . .Goodness, I need to stop talking and finish up Jane's highlights so we can make the town tree-lighting. You come back by because the Cut 'n' Curl's got hot rollers, free coffee, fresh-baked Christmas cookies-and the best gossip in town.

See you real soon, 
Ruby Rhodes

 About the Author
Hope Ramsay grew up on the North Shore of Long Island, but every summer Momma would pack her off under the care of Aunt Annie to go visiting with relatives in the midlands of South Carolina. Her extended family includes its share of colorful aunts and uncles, as well as cousins by the dozens, who provide the fodder for the characters you'll find in Last Chance, South Carolina. She's a two-time finalist in the Golden Heart and is married to a good ol' Georgia boy who resembles every single one of her heroes. She lives in Fairfax, Virginia, where you can often find her on the back deck, picking on her thirty-five-year-old Martin guitar.

Favorite Holiday food and why?
Wow, this is a real toughie. I know many people make the same traditional meal for Christmas dinner every year. But at my house we don’t do that. We always view Christmas as a time to experiment with new, fancy recipes. My husband does a lot of the cooking at Christmas time and he’s made everything from the traditional standing rib roast and Yorkshire pudding, to beef wellington. So I’d have to say that I look forward to Christmas dinner precisely because it’s going to be a new culinary adventure. I
Dessert is always the same, though. (Because I make it.) It’s a yule log that takes two days to make from scratch. It’s almond sponge cake, with chocolate butter cream filling, semi-sweet chocolate icing, marzipan leaves, and meringue mushrooms. It’s got chocolate in it, so of course it’s yummy. Chocolate is my favorite food any time of the year.

What are you reading right now?
I just finished reading an advanced reader copy of Kim Law’s book entitled Sugar Springs. It’s a great read, set in a small town during Thanksgiving and Christmas time. It’s a reunited lovers story, and those are particular favorites. I think the book will be available in December.

What is the last thing you Googled?
The correct spelling of dragees, which are the little silver and gold sugar balls you put on gingerbread cookies. I was looking for the correct spelling because I just finished writing a blog about making gingerbread cookies for the holidays.

What makes you cringe?
Obviously sexist or racist speech that is intended to hurt and humiliate.
