Midsummer Melody

Midsummer Melody. Book Post 422

Midsummer Melody is a "summer short" entry in the Fairy in the Bed series. In this one, we take a step back in time to a midsummer ball held at Skipton Manor in 1969. Over here it's disco, flares and plaid shirts. Over there it's court dress, gowns and breeches. 
   Roderick Skipton, as a respectable son of the manor, is doing his duty as a host. He hopes to find time to dance with Maggie, the girl he plans to marry. In fact, he plans to propose to her that very night, but Maggie proves curiously elusive. Not so a pixie miss in primrose silk. Melody Peckerdale is determined to get his attention, but Roderick knows full well that every pixie miss has a fearsome pixie dad and very often a jealous pixie swain. No sensible courtfolk man is going to risk dealing with those. If only he could convince Melody of that...
And where the heck is Maggie du Fen when he needs some moral support?

Midsummer Melody is a comedy romance, the back story of how Ryl Skipton's parents handled their courtship. Ryl's story is told in The Kissing Ring

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. 2017 is well behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books. As of May 2018 I STILL hadn't run out of books, but many of those still to come are MIA by which I mean I don't have copies and remember little about them. There are more new books in the pipeline, and I'm certainly showcasing those, but in between times, I'm profiling some of my characters, places and objects. Thank you so much to everyone who's come along on this journey so far!
