#wotr #attendingauthor #seriestarter Makin’ Bacon (homegrown cafe 1) by Mellanie Szereto


The women of The Homegrown Café Book Club are over 40, single, and loving it. Fate, however, has a different plan with a younger man for every last one of them.

Divorcée Tate Madison wasted fifteen years of her life with a liar and a cheat. Now she’s returned to her hometown to open The Homegrown Café, find a sperm donor, and spend time with her family and new friends. Encouraged by her fellow middle-aged book-club buddies, she begs a favor from her younger brother’s best friend—father the child her ex-husband denied her. Complications abound when she discovers she’s attracted to the man who wasn’t supposed to be more than an anonymous profile at the clinic.

Pig farmer Jim Cochon knows all about in-vitro fertilization, but he’d rather do things the old-fashioned way with the irresistible redhead he’s wanted to marry since he was five. Too bad she refuses his proposal the morning after their attempt to make a baby. He’ll have to convince her second chances are worth taking when happily-ever-after is at stake.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Tate just got out of a 15 year long relationship/ marriage after trying hard for a child but finding out not only had her husband been lying to her, and cheating on her but he also went and got a vasectomy without her knowing. No wonder she wasn’t able to get pregnant, so she got divorced and went back home to open a restaurant. Well little did the pig farmer who had a major crush on Tate since he was 5 know that she was back in town. Jim was Tate’s little brother’s best friend and was head over heel in love with her and she thought he was the perfect donor for her to get a kid from. Will she get the sperm she’s hoping for or will he think she’s crazy and run for the hills. This was such a cute small town story.

 

When her fingers aren’t attached to her keyboard, Mellanie Szereto enjoys hiking, Pilates, cooking, gardening, and researching for her stories. Many times, the research partners with her other hobbies, taking her from the Hocking Hills region in Ohio to the Colorado Rockies and the Adirondacks of New York. Sometimes, the trip is no farther than her garden for ingredients and her kitchen to test recipes for her latest steamy tale. Mellanie makes her home in rural Indiana with her husband of thirty-four years and their son.

The Homegrown Café Book Club series blurb:

The women of The Homegrown Café Book Club are over 40, single, and loving it. Fate, however, has a different plan with a younger man for every last one of them.

Makin’ Bacon (The Homegrown Café Book Club 1)

Heroine is 42; hero is 35.

Divorcée Tate Madison wasted fifteen years of her life with a liar and a cheat. Now she’s returned to her hometown to open The Homegrown Café, find a sperm donor, and spend time with her family and new friends. Encouraged by her fellow middle-aged book-club buddies, she begs a favor from her younger brother’s best friend—father the child her ex-husband denied her. Complications abound when she discovers she’s attracted to the man who wasn’t supposed to be more than an anonymous profile at the clinic.

Pig farmer Jim Cochon knows all about in-vitro fertilization, but he’d rather do things the old-fashioned way with the irresistible redhead he’s wanted to marry since he was five. Too bad she refuses his proposal the morning after their attempt to make a baby. He’ll have to convince her second chances are worth taking when happily-ever-after is at stake.

The Farmer Takes a Husband (The Homegrown Café Book Club 2)

Heroine is 47; hero is 39.

Organic farmer Riley Fenniman is happily single at forty-seven and refuses to acknowledge an attraction to her younger accountant, let alone surrender to it. Unfortunately, a legal catch in her farm’s ownership and a health scare give her no choice in the matter. The women of The Homegrown Café Book Club have the perfect plan to ensure Riley’s cousin can’t get his greedy paws on her legacy, but it includes a husband and two pubescent girls.

CPA Deacon Jeffries has carried a torch for his favorite client for over a year, but she would probably sooner light him with it than return his affection. She makes an offer he can’t refuse to save her farm, one that makes his wish come true and gives his daughters the mother they need—except for lessons in dropping f-bombs. When the secret she’s keeping reveals itself, he’ll have to choose between self-preservation and love.

The Butcher and the Baker (The Homegrown Café Book Club 3)

Heroine is 43; hero is 37.

After six broken engagements, butcher Petra Lochsley wants nothing to do with men and romance. Her hobbies include throwing axes, discussing books and having raunchy conversations with her middle-aged friends, and eating the occasional Boston cream doughnut—when the flirtatious baker doesn’t insist she prostitute herself for the decadent pleasure. One game of tongue hockey is enough with the guy she used to babysit. So what if he’s hot and is a good kisser?

Baker Auggie Hofmeier didn’t mean fall in love with or accidentally marry the butcher, but his heart seems to know what it’s doing. Besides, his new wife invited him home for a wedding night and more, that is, until the conniving interference by The Candlestick Maker, the old man who owns the shop he and Pet both want to buy, threatens their happily-ever-after. What’s a knave to do?

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The second to last book in the series is usually the hardest for me to finish. The first book in the series is always easiest because…new series!

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

You should see my list of to-write book titles! Blurb writing is by far the most difficult!

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I have two favorite memories as an author–writing The End with my first book and receiving my first fan email!

What is your definition of success?

Having readers who love my stories is the highest measure of success to me, but making a living at writing is up there too!

#WOTR21 #BookSpotlight #Sale – A Little Appetizer, Love on the Menu….Extra Hot 3 by Mellanie Szereto

A Little Appetizer (Love on the Menu...Extra Hot, #3)

MF; Erotic Romance; 42,246 words

Restaurateur Nash Granger wouldn’t mind being happily married—if a woman would let him tend to his growing business instead of making babies. When a call for custom cabinets turns into phone sex, he’s ready to give dating another chance.
Carpenter Lucie Reiter likes her food and her men hot and spicy, but a helping of the safest kind of sex is the perfect appetizer to take the edge off her hunger. When she discovers her partner is the renowned barbecue master she crowned King of the Grill, she’s ready to take their association to a more personal level.
But Nash’s plan to boost his finances with one more cook-off leaves Lucie with a tough decision—step down from judging or brush off the man who always puts business first.

#IAE19 #AuthorSpotlights – Mellanie Szereto

Mellanie Szereto

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hi, I’m Mellanie Szereto!
When my fingers aren’t attached to my keyboard, I enjoy hiking, PIlates, cooking, gardening, and researching for my stories. I’m a foodie and love to write foodie romance, but all that hiking research is going in a paranormal trilogy set in the wilds of Ohio and a college-town series on my to-finish-writing list. You’ll also find plenty of lovable nerdy characters in my stories. That’s what happens when you, your husband, and your children are all nerds!

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

My favorite place to write is anywhere with quiet and no chance of interruption. I’m not much of a snacker, but I always have a supply of Cheez-Its or Goldfish crackers on hand just in case!

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Even though I’m a bit of an introvert, I love meeting readers and talking about books! I also enjoy getting know other authors, whether we’re meeting for the first time or we’re already friends on social media. Checking out the cool swag ideas is fun too!

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

If I could go back in time, I’d love to meet the three authors who most influenced the young reader in me–Louisa May Alcott (Little Women), Anna Sewell (Black Beauty), and Marguerite Henry (Misty of Chincoteague).

What author would you love to write with?

I’d love to write a nerd story with Vicki Lewis Thompson!

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My favorite memory involving a reader is attending a book signing and overhearing her recommend my books to other readers. My favorite writing memory is the first time I wrote The End. 🙂
