Hi, Cindy,

Wow! Thank you soooo much for your kind words. I'm finishing the novella that follows up on Alicia and Kenneth...as well as another great couple.

Daisies Never Lie IS out...but that's not a cruising story.

Cruising is definitely my passion. I'm happiest reading and writing about cruises and OF COURSE actually being ON a cruise. My husband and I are hoping to take another cruise before the end of the year so we can escape to Paradise again.

I can't believe you were in the Virgin Islands during those hurricanes in 1979 when I was on Song of Norway. We might have crossed paths. I just looked at your profile and see you and I are even the same age! What a small world it truly is.

Lynn

Moved to St. Croix after the 2 hurricanes & then back stateside 2 years after that. Hurricane Hugo hit St Croix in '89 and I saw people I knew standing in line for food. All that was left of my former apartment was one small corner & 80% of the buildings on the island were not usable. We were very very lucky.

Wow! We were very lucky, too. Although it was scary at the time, we were kept nice and safe on Song of Norway, and Royal Caribbean went out of their way to keep us happy the whole week. We didn't get hit in South Florida that time, as expected. So all in all, we really dodged some devastating weather. Mother Nature can be rough...as we've found out here in Florida during subsequent hurricanes.

Have a wonderful cruise! There's nothing like being on the deck and gazing out at the gorgeous Caribbean waters. I love that turquoise color!!! Happy reading, too, and thank you so much <g>.

The problem I'am having with the book is that I had to hide it in my suitcase cause I couldn't put it down.

I'm just guessing, but you probably KNOW where you've hidden the book <g>. Oh, well, whatever works for you.

I'll be picturing you in a deck chair, possibly sipping a frothy tropical drink, while you're reading. Oh, lucky, lucky you. I want to go, too! I am going through major cruise withdrawal.

BTW, you might enjoy my blog because of all the cruise photos, too. I know I enjoy living vicariously through photos here on Cruise Critic.

Please, please check back with me after your cruise. I can't wait to hear your review of your vacation, too.

Happy Sailing!

Lynn

I just downloaded "Trouble in Paradise" from Amazon for my wife. She loves to read and I'm sure she will enjoy this!

We are looking forward to our first cruise!

Thanks!

Thank you so much, Jim. I hope Roni enjoys Trouble in Paradise. Have a wonderful cruise! That's really exciting to be anticipating your FIRST cruise. My honeymoon cruise was 28 years ago this coming Sunday, November 13th...on Royal Caribbean's SONG OF AMERICA. Ahhhhh. What wonderful memories!

There is a short story that was free on amazon for the Kindle: The Parrot Talks for Chocolate. Not exactly cruise related but a great cruise read!

Hi, Amanda,

Thank you soooooo much. Enjoy your cruise. I see you've been on Liberty of the Seas a few times. That is my FAVORITE ship, and we're hoping to cruise on her again before the end of the year.

Happy Reading,
Lynn

Hi, Corkey (Carol),

Thank you!!! I hope you have as much fun reading my cruise stories as I did writing them. Be sure to read Trouble in Paradise before Christmas in Paradise, okay?

Are you cruising soon? If not, do like I do in between cruises...read about cruising and set sail vicariously

Hi, Corkey Carol (Corkey? Carol?)

Oh, my. Although it doesn't say it in the book, you will realize Christmas in Paradise is obviously based on Allure and reflects my love for that ship I have cruised on Oasis twice and Allure once and am sooooooooooooo in love with those ships. They are beyond amazing!!! You are so fortunate to be doing a b2b on Allure. That is the perfect ship for a b2b because of all the activities and the sheer size of the ship. OMG! Allure is just soooooo gorgeous. You will love every minute, I'm sure.

I have been on Navigator several times, too. Yes, it's much smaller than Allure...but it will always have a special place in my heart. It is homey and cozy, in my opinion...AND not too small either. It's a really nice size. I particularly like the hot tub in the gym. That's unique and a nice place to escape to if it's cloudly, cool, rainy outside.

I could go on and on! Cruising is definitely my passion...

Thank you again. Let's stay in touch!

Lynn

Hi, Cindy,

Since you asked...I don't know if you noticed Christmas in Paradise, which just came out. It's a stand alone 100+ page Novella and continues the story of Alicia and Kenneth as well. The setting for seasoned cruisers is Allure, a ship I'm in love with. I did change some facts to make the ship my own....but still <g>.

I want to go on another cruise!!!

Lynn

Oh, my. Although it doesn't say it in the book, you will realize Christmas in Paradise is obviously based on Allure and reflects my love for that ship I have cruised on Oasis twice and Allure once and am sooooooooooooo in love with those ships. They are beyond amazing!!! You are so fortunate to be doing a b2b on Allure. That is the perfect ship for a b2b because of all the activities and the sheer size of the ship. OMG! Allure is just soooooo gorgeous. You will love every minute, I'm sure.

I have been on Navigator several times, too. Yes, it's much smaller than Allure...but it will always have a special place in my heart. It is homey and cozy, in my opinion...AND not too small either. It's a really nice size. I particularly like the hot tub in the gym. That's unique and a nice place to escape to if it's cloudly, cool, rainy outside.

I could go on and on! Cruising is definitely my passion...

Thank you again. Let's stay in touch!

Hi, Carol. I'm going with "Carol." Or Corkey. Darn! I want to call you whatever YOU like the best.

Reno? That sounds like FUN. I live in South Florida, so that is far away... On a positive note, I live very close to Port of Miami and Port Everglades

Thank you soooooo much for your kind words about my book. I'm actually excited Christmas in Paradise will tie in with your Allure cruise. I was thinking about that this weeknd.

I posted my first post on your M&M Clubhouse board. I see I have a LOT of messages to read, so I've only read the first and last posts so far.

I'm off to go find "How do we liven up this board." Have a great morning!

Lynn
