Q: Why, oh why, did you leave Daisy twisting in the wind like that? Curse you! May you burn in hell! (But after you write Daisy’s story.)
A: WARNING. There are bound to be a few spoilers in my reply. If spoilers bother you, please don’t read! If you don’t mind the spoilers, roll your mouse over the hidden parts of the reply to highlight and reveal the text (I’ve written it in white font).
Oh, Daisy. When will you learn? We’ve been following you since you were a troubled child of divorce in Summer at Willow Lake, a pregnant teen in The Winter Lodge, leaving home in Dockside, a college student in Snowfall at Willow Lake, a career girl in Fireside and a busy single mom in Lakeshore Christmas.
And all we’ve ever wanted was for you to find your happily-ever-after.
You keep being pulled back and forth between Logan, the handsome, well-born father of your child, and Julian, the dangerous but adoring adrenalin junkie in search of adventure.
And now this! Somebody’s about to pop the question and we don’t even get to know which one, or what your answer is!
Argh! I could kill you dead right now!
There is no way everyone is going to love everything that happens to a character in a book. I just hope I can be true and fair to the characters and storylines I’ve set up.
It’s true that there is a major, major unanswered question at the end of Lakeshore Christmas. Daisy finds herself in quite a pickle. A delicious pickle.
The good news is, somebody wants to marry her.
The bad news is, we don’t quite know which somebody.
Do I know who dropped the d-bomb on the train platform? Yes.
Is it who you think it is? Probably not.
Disclaimer: Even though I do know how this is going to go down, I haven’t finished Daisy’s book yet, so it’s subject to change. Sometimes a story goes off in its own direction and I have no choice but to follow.
I have a title I really like: Daisy+Logan+Julian which doesn’t really give anything away. It’s a working title and my publisher tends to change them so I’m not holding my breath.
One thing I can promise: The book will be Lakeshore #8 (after the March 2010 release of The Summer Hideaway).

It’s Frustrated Reader time in my in-box. Definitely the most frequently asked question is this:

Disclaimer: Even though I do know how this is going to go down, Daisy’s book is full of surprises. As the story unfolded from my imagination, the twists and turns surprised even me. Sometimes a story goes off in its own direction and I have no choice but to follow.

I had a title I really like: Daisy+Logan+Julian which doesn’t really give anything away. It’s a working title and my publisher tends to change them so didn’t hold my breath. Ultimately, the perfect title emerged from lengthy discussions with my editor and agent: Marrying Daisy Bellamy.

One thing I can promise: There is an enticing excerpt from Lakeshore #11 in the back of the new edition of Daisy. Please enjoy the exclusive preview of Starlight on Willow Lake.

  • Hi!

    I checked through the book (this time borrowed from the library due to low finances this time of year) to see if their were ripped pages that may have contained more on Daisy…I will be waiting patiently!!!

    A Girl who loves escaping to Avalon & a huge fan,
    Melanie Leone

  • I loved the book. I would love to see Daisy’s story I knew that it was far too soon. All three of them have to finish school and get settled before you can finish that out. I’m sure we are all rooting for who we want Daisy to be with, But I would not be surprised if you found someone else for her altogether

  • The Daisy story certainly needs telling but she didn’t distract me from Maureen and Eddie. If I had been able to go to college, library science might have been the choice so Maureen holds a special place in my heart. Like her, the bathtub is a favorite reading spot for me. I hope her story continues in future books.

  • Thanks for this, even though it really doesn’t tell us much, anything from you about Daisy is welcommed! I don’t know what it is about her that I love so much, but you have me hooked! (I think it might be Julian!) haha.
    Anxiously awaiting March 2010 for Summer Hideaway!

  • I am glad to know others felt the same way. I am sorry but Daisy stole the show. I really cared more about her & her HEA.
    Can’t wait to find out what happens.
