Dear Librarians,

New Orleans, Louisiana is the birthplace of jazz and as such, the birthplace of jazz standards such as The Man I Love. It is also the setting of my new novel, A BILLION REASONS WHY which celebrates the music and romantic era of the 1940's. Katie McKenna is a special education teacher in California when her first love, Billionaire Luc DeForges invites her back home to Louisiana for the wedding of his brother. Katie is about to be engaged – to someone else – and the invitation comes at a most inconvenient time. Or does it?

Katie must ultimately decide what love means to her. Is it safe and secure or is it slightly more dangerous than that? Katie must relive her past and grieve her mistakes to find out what God's plan is for her future.

Contemporary romance is a popular genre with readers, as evidenced by authors such as Karen Kingsbury and Denise Hunter. I believe A BILLION REASONS WHY is a novel your patrons will enjoy, both for its classic romance of yesterday and its modern treatment of what love looks like today.

Thank you for your support,
Kristin Billerbeck
