)-- Writers are frequently told to write what they know. Chris Chegri knows romance. A passion for humor, travel and foreign cultures has led her to work on a time-travel set in Morocco and a humorous crime novel set in east Texas.
She is currently a member of Sisters in Crime, Phoenix Chapter and Romance Writers of America. She also mentors several new writers. She grew up spending summers at her grandmother's home in Ormond by the Sea, just north of Daytona Beach, Florida. A sleepy, unpretentious seaside town, it seemed the perfect spot to relax, clear your mind, even fall in love. And so, she wrote Package Deal.
The contemporary romance novel, Package Deal revolves around Kelly Pearson, who accepts a job in sunny Daytona Beach, leaving San Francisco's gloom and the pain of her past behind. A man's interest is the last thing she wants, but a mix up at the airport forces a luggage swap with Steve McCarthy. Despite the icy facade Kelly uses to protect herself, she is drawn to Steve by his patience and kindness toward her and her daughter Lacey. But trust comes hard for Kelly, and she reminds herself if something is too good to be true, she'd better run.
Steve McCarthy, a cryogenic physicist at the Kennedy Space Center, has been single far too long and is ready to settle down and have a family. His attraction for Kelly is undeniable, and he is determined to melt her cold heart, never realizing that with one misstep he could lose her forever.
Knight Romance Publishing released Package Deal in Ebook format in January 2012, by the following month, Package Deal hit the Amazon Best Seller’s Rank in the number 20 Spot Amazon Kindle Best Sellers Contemporary Romances.
Package Deal by Chris Chegri is available for pre-order at local bookstores and online.
