Sixteen-year-old Natalie’s grandmother, suffering from dementia and confined to a wheelchair, lives in a nursing home and rarely recognizes Natalie. But one Halloween night, she tells her a shocking secret that only she and Natalie’s mother know. Natalie is the product of a one-night stand between her mother, who is a college English teacher, and another professor.

Natalie realizes she has some growing up to do. Scared and confused, she reaches out to her biological father, and they start corresponding.

Her younger sister, Sarah, senses their parents’ marital difficulties. At Thanksgiving, when she has an opportunity to see Santa Claus, she asks him to bring them together again. Can the jolly old elf grant her request?

Another Fantastic Review of My New Book #SaturdaySurprise #Book Reviews #Inspiration

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

And now, here’s Trish Hubschman, author of the Tracy Gayle mystery series, with another fabulous review of my new book, Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me. If you’re a fan of detective stories, you can learn more about her books here. Now, take it away, Trish!

I just finished reading Abbie Johnson Taylor’s new book, Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me. I really enjoyed it. It’s excellent. I highly recommend it. I can’t   even remember when I last sat down to a book that held my attention like this one did. It’s a family story. It has conflict, suspense. I felt happiness, sadness, excitement. It triggered all my emotions. The book is in first person. Each scene is narrated by a different character and the dialogue flows beautifully and is right on target. It brought back memories from when I was a kid and made me smile.

I’m pleased to announce that my new book, Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me, is now available from Bookshare, a service providing material in accessible formats for those with difficulty reading due to visual or other disabilities. If you subscribe, you can download the book here.

As a result, reader Sue Brasel reached out through my contact form and told me how much she enjoyed the book. I asked her to either send me a review or leave one on Amazon or Smashwords. She responded that she read it on Bookshare, which doesn’t have an option for leaving reviews, and sent me the following. Thank you, Sue.

This is a book of a hopeful Thanksgiving that blends into a peaceful, cherished Christmas scenario. The characters have lifelike qualities with believable attitudes.

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Image contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
