I have a feeling that two of our Cozy Chicks have gotten EXACTLY the perfect Valentine's gift this year because...
wait for it ...
drum roll ....
big news ....

Lorraine Bartlett's ONE HOT MURDER hit the New York Times Bestseller list at #16!!
and Lucy Arlington's (Ellery Adams) ONE TRICK IN THE BOOK came in #23!!

Congrats to our Cozy Chicks!!!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!!

When I was young, my dad used to buy Fannie May chocolates every year for me and my mom. Back when the girls were all home my husband used to bake cookies for them before they left for school in the morning. But that's it. A little "hey I love you" moment, and all is good.

Still, every year, my husband asks: "We're not doing anything for Valentine's Day, are we?" And I assure him that we aren't. We go out to dinner fairly often already - Valentine's Day would only mean that the restaurants are more crowded. I like flowers as much as anyone, but they die quickly and are terribly expensive. Yeah, I'm a practical sort, I suppose. Not too romantic.

But I still think the day is fun and I appreciate the fact that it brings people together.

What about you? Do you celebrate? Any particular traditions?
