Meet the Author

Susan Wiggs has won many awards for her work, including a RITA from Romance Writers of America. She has also published with a number of houses, including Avon, HarperCollins, Warner and MIRA Books.

In addition to being a militant romance writer, a feminist, a guilt-ridden mother and a perfect wife, Susan Wiggs grows mutant tomatoes, speaks French, and plays the cello. Her hobbies are reading, traveling the world and Fair Isle knitting. She lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, her daughter, and the world's most ill-mannered Airedale. Although she has convinced her family that toiling away at a writing career makes her a candidate for martyrdom, she secretly believes it's the second-most fun to be had.

Wiggs, a Harvard graduate, confesses that a book once saved her sanity. Trapped at Barcelona Airport during an airline strike, she vividly remembers savoring every lush, escapist word of a romance novel. Ever since, it has been her quest to write the sort of books people cling to in crowded airports, or whenever life gets too crazy.

    Cheated

    I couldn't believe it when I discovered this "book" was less than 70 pages in length. I enjoy reading books by Susan Wiggs, but calling this a book is false advertising. It was a teaser for her next book. If B&N wants to give this as a freebie to encourage people to buy her next book, that's great. I would have a different opinion of this. But to call this a book without telling us it is just a preview of a future book isn't fair.

    Not Worth the Money !!!

    I totally agree with the readers, who said this was not worthy of being called a book and is just a prelude to her next book. I had NO idea that it was so few pages and reads like someone's documented military spouse diary. As stated not worth the money !!!

    What Prequel?

    This was cover in the book An Ocean between us. To insult the reader with this so called prequel book and charge us to booth, makes me what to buy a kindle instead. B&N wake up.

    When is 68 pages a book ?

    I felt cheated. And this isn't the first time. BN need to let people know they are getting a lot of advertising when you buy this book.

    Absolutely agree.

    The writing was obviously well done but I would have never bought this if i had known it was so short! Ridiculous to even charge anything for this.

    Unbelievable

    Guess I'm glad I only paid $1.59 for it since it's only 80 pages. What kind of book is 80 pages. You must be kidding me!

    more from this reviewer

    Want to read her other works now

    I never heard of this writer before. Glad I tried out this prequel to her other book. I can relate to a marriage to someone in the military. I was in the military and although most of my service was overseas, I knew others who fell in love, got married, had kids and then watched their husband deploy, hoping that he'd come home well and in one piece. Being the wife of a military person is kind of like being married to a policeman or fire fighter. You admire what they do but wish you didn't have to worry about their job killing or maiming them.
