Get Acquainted With Peggy

Peggy Jaeger writes contemporary romances about strong women, the families who support them, and the men who can’t live without them. Family and food play huge roles in Peggy’s stories because she believes there is nothing that holds a family structure together like sharing a meal…or two…or ten.

Dotted with humor and characters that are as real as they are loving, Peggy brings all aspects of life
into her stories: life, death, sibling rivalry, illness, and the desire for everyone to find their own happily ever after.

Growing up as the only child of divorced parents, she longed for sisters, brothers and a family that vowed to stick together no matter what came their way.

Through her books, she has created the families she wanted as that lonely child.

Now, let's find out more about Peggy's book.

Dearly Beloved by Peggy Jaeger

Colleen O'Dowd manages a thriving bridal business with her sisters in Heaven, New Hampshire.

After fleeing Manhattan and her cheating ex-fiancé, Colleen still believes in happily ever afters, but she's worried she'll never find Mr. Right.

Playboy Slade Harrington doesn't believe in marriage. His father's six weddings have taught him life is better as an unencumbered single guy.

He doesn't plan on losing his heart to a smart-mouthed, gorgeous wedding planner, though.

When her ex-fiancé comes back into the picture, Colleen must choose between Mr. Right and Mr. Right Now.

Thursday's 3 Questions

(1) What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

Three years ago my daughter was in a bridal party of one of her sorority sisters. Since both families were at opposite ends of the country, the bride and groom chose a wedding destination that was halfway between both, a venue where the ceremony, reception, and the hotel were all in one place.

My daughter called it a "one-stop wedding," and the idea to write a book about a family involved in a bridal business started to grow. I invented 3 sisters. One is a wedding planner, one is an Officient/Justice of the Peace, and one owns the inn where the ceremonies take place and where everyone stays.

(2) If a movie was made of your book, what actors would be cast as the leading lady and leaving man?

Ann-Margret (the younger version!) as Colleen O'Dowd, and Channing Tatum as Slade Harrington. You can view my Pinterest boards connected with Dearly Beloved here:
