About the event

Becca Kinzer is BACK! Hooray! The author of "Dear Henry, Love Edith" has a new release, "Love In Tandem," and she'll be back to tell us all about it and sign copies in the bookshop.  Becca is one of our favorite rom com (romantic comedy) authors. Her charming settings and witty banter perfectly bring to mind the Nora Ephron glory days of films like You've Got Mail and When Harry Met Sally. Her novels are clean romances as well, so a signed copy would be a lovely gift for anyone from a tween to a retiree. ABOUT THE BOOK: She’s perfectly content leading a quiet life in her small hometown. He’s an adventurer with unquenchable wanderlust. The two couldn’t be any more opposite if they tried. But a tandem bicycle and a 500-mile road trip just might change all that. After a failed engagement and her mother’s battle with cancer, Charlotte Carter’s life is finally turning around now that she’s landed a dream job teaching music. What she didn’t see coming was the imminent closure of the school’s music program. She’s determined to save it, even if it means getting creative. There’s no way she’s chalking this up as just another failure in her book of recent embarrassments. Zach Bryant is back in town just long enough to see his brother Ben get married and then he’s off traveling the world again. He never imagined he’d run into Charlotte Carter, his brother’s ex-fiancé, or that everyone would believe he and Charlotte are an item. He certainly didn’t dream he’d end up riding a tandem bicycle hundreds of miles with her in an attempt to raise funds for a defunct music program, but how can he say no when the prize money would help him out of his financial predicament too? Charlotte is sure she can set aside her differences with Zach long enough to cross the finish line and win the giant cash prize . . . can’t she? A few hundred miles in, she’s questioning her deeply held assumptions about Zach and wondering if maybe tandem biking is only the start of their biggest adventure yet. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Becca Kinzer lives in Springfield, Illinois, where she works as a critical care nurse. When she?s not taking care of sick patients or reminding her husband and two kids that frozen chicken nuggets is a gourmet meal, she enjoys making up lighthearted stories with serious laughs. She is a 2018 ACFW First Impressions Contest winner, a 2019 Genesis Contest winner, a 2021 Cascade Award winner, and an all-around champion coffee drinker.
