Everybody has a mission in life. Mine is to encourage people to read more, everything from memoir to fantasy, blue novels to white papers, history to mystery. While reading is a solitary pleasure, a meet-up with fellow bookworms and, even better, expert authors who keep us enthralled, ups the satisfaction quotient immeasurably. On Wednesday, August 3 at La Tarte Flambee in midtown Manhattan, Tomatoes will gather to celebrate summer and summer’s most entertaining reads. These three terrific novels from Harlequin, our premier sponsor for this evening of yummy eats, good drinks, and lively company, can be yours when we raffle off a book bag of ten of this season’s best books.

As soon as she can, she returns to war-torn Europe and accomplishes something that seems damn near impossible. There’s so much more to Addie’s story, including three dashing men vying for her affection. Pam Jenoff will be there, too, on August 3 and I can’t wait to hear how she came to write her young hero’s story. Get the book.
Sultry, sexy, and impossible to put down, this mystery has its roots deep in Kentucky’s antebellum past. You’ll want to consume this with two fingers of your finest whiskey and a willing partner… it’s sure to spark some fireworks! Get the book.
