Meeting Elin...

We saw the announcement on Facebook a few weeks ago that favorite author Elin Hildebrand was coming to Books and Books in Coral Gables.  My friends and I immediately marked our calendars and I told work I was going to leave early that day.  Meg and I got there in plenty of time to get good seats, so excited to hear her reading from her upcoming novel, Beautiful Day


After reading for about 20 minutes, she answered questions from the crowd.  I asked what her favorite book was and the answer was The Blue Bistro, based on the amazing Galley Restaurant on Nantucket.  She also told us she is friends with a lot of the restaurant owners on the island and they are constantly calling her to come by and meet the groups of women who flock to Nantucket after reading her books.  So funny.


After the reading, she was on the way to the Keys to write..so happy to catch her on her Miami pitstop.




Another favorite is Silver Girl..there are so many to name.  If you have not read any of her books, you are seriously missing out.  They are addictive!!!

Beautiful Day comes out June 25, 2013.

Thank you for posting this! She is one of my favorites too. I save her book every summer for my beach vacation! Can't wait for the new one!
