A Reviewer's Choice Award for Finding Felicity

I am so honored that Finding Felicity earned a Reviewer's Choice Award from Two Lips Reviews. Here's an excerpt of the review:

"Love, life, forgiveness, and death are the central themes of Monica Marlowe’s character driven story, Finding Felicity. While this is a romance novel, it’s also so much more; it’s a story about forgiveness, life, family, faith, and the choices we make. Ms. Marlowe’s characters captured my attention from the first page and never let go."

The full review can be found here:

Thank you Rose and Two Lips Reviews!

The Midwest Book Review: "Finding Felicity"

I am so excited to read this review ... and grateful, too!

Midwest Book Review, January 2012

An act of kindness can lead to much more. "Finding Felicity" is a dramatic novel following Madeline O'Connor who rushes to Italy to be at her dying sister's side. Staying at a monastery, her time there changes her life, finding love in a place that isn't usually regarded as romantic. She soon learns her visit to Italy will change the course of her life forever. "Finding Felicity" is a fine and entertaining pick, not to be overlooked.

Ursula's Christmas Cabbage

So hard to believe that it's Christmas Eve. Growing up, that meant it was time for my mother's red cabbage. She would start cooking it first thing in the morning, and the aroma would fill the house for the whole day. We children were the official testers throughout the day. We'd attempt to sneak into the kitchen, undetected, and scoop up a spoonful from the pot into our mouths.

"Get out of the cabbage!" my mother would shout from the living room.  How ever did she know what we were up to? I guess that's why she always said that she needed to have eyes ... in the back of her head.

My mom passed away in 1989. Ever since, I've made Ursula's Christmas Cabbage on Christmas Eve. Of course, I've modified the recipe somewhat, using red wine where my mom used water. As I write, I hear it simmering on the stove and my writer's cottage is beginning to smell oh so good! Soon, I'll have to test it.

From my house to yours, I wish you Happy Holidays, a Merry Christmas, and a New Year filled with felicity!
