A real life GARDEN SPELLS romance for Christmas:
Carl got in touch with my publicist at St. Martin’s Press:
“Ms. Allen’s book Garden Spells has a cute connection in our relationship because it was actually what my girlfriend let me borrow to read during our first “date.” It was her copy of her favorite book, and I enjoyed it as well, so I think there’s some special meaning to the work. I thought I could give her a new, maybe even a first edition of the book, as an early Christmas gift. However, I was wondering if Ms. Allen could personalize the copy, but also write something about me having a question for her, or ‘Aliyyah, Will you marry Carl?’ “
This made me smile, so of course I did it, and wished Carl good luck.
I’m happy to report that Aliyyah said, “Yes.”
How adorable are they??
