Aly Grady

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Aly Grady – Indiana living but New Englander at heart.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

Favorite place to write is on the couch – most productive place is a different story. I have to have something to drink when I write.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I love meeting the other writers. After all – every writer is a reader too.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Because of attending a national event for writers, I’ve had the privilege to meet many of my all time favorite writers. I’d probably have to say the one writer I’d fall over myself with a fan girl moment would be Bella Andre. I’ve read a lot of her books and love her style.

What author would you love to write with?

]Because mystery is out of my element – I’d love to collaborate with TC Winters on a cozy mystery that I’ve started but can’t wrap my brain around the twist and turns needed to do the story justice. I love how her minds works a story out.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Seeing “Racer’s Widow” printed for the first time brought me to tears.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

I love relaxing on my couch to write, but my most productive spot is at my desk. A cup of tea is never far from my side.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I love seeing readers who I’ve gotten to know over the years. It’s catching up with old friends.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

I’d love to meet Janet Evanovich. I’ve read all those crazy Stephanie Plum books.

What author would you love to write with?

I’d love to collaborate with TC Winters. I’ve a few cozy mystery ideas floating around in my head and she has a fantastically twisted way to weave her own stories.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My favorite memory as an author would have to be when I received the proof for the cover for The Racer’s Widow. In the moment, my writing career became real.

Twinsie Angie’s Review of A Girlfriend for Christmas HERE

#WOTR19 #Review #SweetRomance – A Girlfriend for Christmas by Aly Grady

A Girlfriend For Christmas

When a blizzard prevents teacher Caroline Crawley from getting home for the first Christmas after her mother’s death, a stranger makes her an offer she can’t refuse.

Dr. Colin Pepper is traveling home, but without the non-existent girlfriend his family is expecting.

Can a pretend girlfriend be Colin’s true Christmas miracle?

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

When Aly asked if I would like to review her new “sweet holiday book”, I jumped.  Her books have that feel good vibe you get when reading.

The story is about Caroline who is stuck in the airport trying to get home to her dad in Iowa for Christmas.  She meets and chats with a kind and attractive man who hands her the phone and says “hey talk to my mom would ya.”…yup and that is how this whole story starts.

Colin told a small white lie to his family about bringing a non-existent girlfriend home for the holiday.  When he finds out Caroline’s story, he offers to help her if she helps him.  Upon entering his childhood home, he throws the final grenade at her…she is his liv- in girlfriend!!

Caroline is a trooper, but she enjoys the family time since she is an only child and being around Colin’s mom since she has lost her own mom helps to heal her heart.  There is insta-love but honestly this whole book is just a feel-good story.

We do have some conflict in the form of LAURA….Growl…not a fan of her at all but the end of the story was adorable and I can say I enjoyed reading it the night before Thanksgiving when the Holiday seasons officially kicks off.

Indiana. He said we had to move to Indiana. Was I in for a shock. Actually, no, but it would have been a great story. I love living and raising my family in the Midwest. Living with a racer spurred my imagination and I created The Racer’s Widow series. Since then, I’ve gone on to start the Homecoming series with A Home to Love.

Look me up and give me a shout. I’d love to hear from you.

 

#WOTR19 #ThrowbackReview – A Home For Love (Homecoming Book 1) by Aly Grady

A Home For Love (Homecoming Book 1)

Having thrown in the towel where men are concerned, Charlotte Cavanuagh devotes her energy toward expanding her design business and finding a new place to live.

Despite his love of family, recent losses have left Luke Anderson with no desire to embark upon a new relationship, allowing him to give his contracting company his undivided attention.

But when Charlotte and Luke work together on a customer’s dream home, their budding friendship results in more sparks than either of them ever expected.

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

You know what they say? You find love when you aren’t looking. This book is precisely what the old adage is saying.

Charlotte was NOT looking for love.  After coming home and finding her husband screwing his secretary, Charlotte said DONZO!!  She ignored Grants MANY attempts at reconciliation because in her heart she knew they weren’t really in love but just a great working team who happened to marry. Luke was all about the pride of his work.  He was working and not really looking for anything or one when Charlotte walks into his life by accident.

The couple end up spending some time together and soon the sparks are flying.  As we are seeing the couple start to form attachments and figure out what is going on, there are some weird things happening and causing trouble for the new couple.

The story of the house the Charlotte buys….my heart….so sweet.  I loved the description of the house and what we discover from Luke about the house.

The story is a sweet read and one readers who are looking for characters who are mature and not a 20 something.

 

Aly Grady is New England born but for more than ten years has enjoyed living and raising her children in the Indianapolis area. She has firsthand knowledge of the racing industry because she is a racing widow. Aly enjoys trying to keep up with her two children and their busy lives, reading books by her favorite authors, watching IndyCar racing to look for her husband and traveling. “If you can read all those romance books you should be able to write one.” Aly took that challenge by her husband and ran with it to create The Racer’s Widow.
