Local girl does good

Miss Eileen got a terrific review in Romantic Times for her upcoming debut novel, In the Stars (Berkley, June 2007). They predict she's going to be top of the bestseller lists one of these days, and we will all nod and smile proudly because we always knew she would.

Here's the review - did I mention, four and a half stars is damn near as good a review as RT gives?
