All marriages are hard. Many of them fail. Brock Lewis, an evangelical businessman turned self-published author, has the answer. Follow his international bestselling book’s 12-point “Atomic Doctrine” - make eye contact with your spouse? Always! Use the bathroom in front of them? Never! - and you, too, can build a marriage that thrives.

Sir John Penlyon is planning to spend Christmas at his estate with his niece and his friend Danby, the closest thing he has to family since disowning his daughter years ago. (She eloped with the parson, who was, of course, penniless.) Danby suggests that at Christmastime the estate needs the presence of small children, and offers to find some - the “hirelings” - despite Sir John’s skepticism. Three children duly arrive, and the youngest, precocious four year-old Moppet, quickly endears herself to Sir John.

For PR guru-turned-advice-columnist Waverly Bryson, life is pretty sweet. She has an amazing job, a devoted boyfriend, and the best friends a girl could hope for. Things couldn’t possibly be better - or so she thinks - until she receives an offer to turn her popular advice column into a regular guest spot on national television. The new gig means moving cross-country to New York to work for a woman who can’t stand her, not to mention leaving her best friends, Andie and McKenna, behind while still missing her already-too-long-distance boyfriend, Jake.

What did you love best about Honey on Your Mind?

Took the series to the next level. New York scenery and the chaos of Waverly managing two dream outcomes for her "Honey Notes".

Who was your favorite character and why?

Paige is a fun character. Her interactions with Waverly as a partner in the new business was humorous, plus it was nice that this book added more "points of view" from the supporting characters.

After rebounding from a broken engagement and relinquishing her job in sports PR, the irrepressible Waverly Bryson has a new man, a new career, and a new lease on life. Her part-time gig as an advice columnist has proven to be as entertaining as it is affirming, and her fledgling greeting card line, Honey Notes, is off to a promising start. After a series of disastrous romantic rebounds, she has settled into a long-distance relationship with handsome Jake McIntyre.
