Who Reads Amanda Cabot's Books? -- Lindsay Laskowski Does

This month's featured reader is Lindsay Laskowski from London.  Yes, London, England.  You guessed that from the background, didn't you?  I know that many of my readers live in the States, so it was fun to hear from Lindsay, who not only lives seven time zones away from me but whose preferred reading medium is e-book.

Lindsay, let's tell other readers a bit more about you.

What was the first of my books that you read?
     Paper Roses.
I'm glad you see you started with the first of the Texas Dreams series.  Even though I've designed my books to be read in any order, I suspect readers will enjoy the series more if they're read in sequence.

How did you discover that book?
One of my aunts gave me a copy of it.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and have continued to anxiously await each subsequent book.
My thanks to your aunt.  I've always heard that word of mouth was the most effective way of promoting a book.  I'm glad that your aunt introduced you to my books, and of course I'm delighted that the first book hooked you on the series.

If you have a favorite Cabot book, which one is it?  (And why is it your favorite, if you'd like to share that with others.)  
This is such a hard question as I really have enjoyed each and every one of the books; it seems that the last one I read becomes my new favorite. I especially enjoy the trilogies as I feel that I am accompanying the characters on their own life journey and cannot wait to see what their future holds. 

My current favorite is Christmas Roses as it was the perfect Christmas story filled with love and hope.
Now I know why you're holding Christmas Roses in your picture.  Of course I'm pleased that my characters have come to life for you.

 Who are your other favorite authors?

I enjoy several authors but my other favorite author would be Nicholas Sparks as I am a hopeless romantic.
I am thrilled to be mentioned in the same sentence as Nicholas Sparks.  Thanks for the compliment!

 What do you enjoy doing when you're not reading?
Traveling is something that I love doing and learning about various cultures.  I am very fortunate that my husband shares that passion and that we currently live in the UK making travel easier.  I also enjoy quiet evenings and spending time with my true love, my husband.
How wonderful that you've found your true love.  It's real-life love stories like yours that inspire me to write romances. 

Thanks for sharing your story with us, Lindsay.  I wish you many more opportunities to explore Europe with your husband.
