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
