Mary Simses
at Burgundy Books and Water's Edge
Fenwick Room
June 17, 2017 at 2 PM

  
Mary Simses is stopping by to talk about her most recent book, The Rules of Love and Grammar.
Her first smash hit at our store, The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Café, is a
 story about new beginnings and the challenges that go along with it.  Of course there is love and what
one could call an ode to blueberries and the state of Maine. 

In the Rules of Love and Grammar, Grace Hammond is a young woman with a bone to pick
about spelling mistakes, punctuation, and sentence structure. A wordsmith by trade, Grace can’t let
even the most innocent grammar mistakes slip by. She marks up menus in restaurants
and cringes when she sees fliers with incorrect punctuation. Grace’s life is in need of correcting, too.
Laid off from her writing job and newly single, she hits Pause and returns to her childhood home in Connecticut.
Summer Refreshments will be served at both locations
Tickets are $25.00 and $5.00 can be used towards books or any store purchase

  BURGUNDY BOOKS NEWSLETTER
July 25, 2014

Readers are speaking in hushed tones about this being the fast approaching
end of Summer 2014.  This month has been full of activity for us and August promises
to be even more dynamic.

Burgundy Books joined the world of Marcia Clark, if even for an evening.

The Competition by Marcia Clark



At the event, Marcia was charming, interesting and brilliant.  Readers
learned a lot from her research and experiences in the courtroom.

Angelina P. Raffone our event reviewer wrote about The Competition and said:

The Competition

          The Competition is more than just your summer reading, jaw-clenching, whodunit mystery novel.
  (Although it is all of those things!)  Marcia Clark, the ever witty and charming woman,
known most famously for her involvement in the OJ Simpson trial, writes a novel that can be described
d as purely stunning.  Clark’s inside knowledge of the way in which school shootings are handled
shines brightly through The Competition, allowing readers to feel as if they are truly a character in the book.
  A range of emotions will filter and sift through your body as you read it,
and the ending will leave you surprised and aghast!  Overall, The Competition is memorable, and that is really one
of the most important qualities you can ask for out of a book.
