Congrats Camille
on the release today of
The Beautiful Strangers!

The Beautiful Strangers by Camille Di Maio 
Print and e-book, 320 pages
Published March 5th 2019 by Lake Union Publishing

A legendary hotel on the Pacific becomes a haven where dreams, love, and a beguiling mystery come alive.

1958. Kate Morgan, tethered to her family’s failing San Francisco restaurant, is looking for an escape. She gets her chance by honoring a cryptic plea from her grandfather: find the beautiful stranger. The search takes her to Hotel del Coronado, the beachfront landmark on the Southern California coast where filming is underway on the movie Some Like It Hot.

For a movie lover like Kate, it’s a fantasy come true. So is the offer of a position at the glamorous hotel. And a new romance is making her heart beat just as fast. But as sure as she is that the Coronado is her future, Kate discovers it’s also where the ghosts of the past have come to stay. Sixty years ago a guest died tragically, and she still haunts the hotel’s halls.

As the lives of two women—generations apart—intertwine, Kate’s courageous journey could change more than she ever imagined. And with the Coronado wending its way through her soul, she must follow her dreams…wherever they may lead.

I loved this story! You can read my thoughts here. This one has it all. If you love stories with an old Hollywood movie story-line, a bit of a ghost story, and plenty of mystery surrounding the characters, you're going to love The Beautiful Strangers. Oh, and don't forget the love stories. There's plenty of that as well.

About the author

Camille Di Maio

Camille recently left an award-winning real estate career in San Antonio to become a full-time writer. Along with her husband of 21 years, she home schools their four children. She has a bucket list that is never-ending, and uses her adventures to inspire her writing. She's lived in Texas, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and California, and spends enough time in Hawai'i to feel like a local. She's traveled to four continents (so far), and met Mother Teresa and Pope John Paul II. She just about fainted when she had a chance to meet her musical idol, Paul McCartney, too.

Camille studied political science in college, but found working on actual campaigns much more fun. She overdoses on goodies at farmers markets (justifying them by her support for local bakeries), and belts out Broadway tunes whenever the moment strikes. There's almost nothing she wouldn't try, so long as it does't involve heights, roller skates, or anything illegal.

The Memory of Us is Camille's debut novel, her second book Before the Rain Falls released in 2017, and her third, The Way of Beauty, came out in 2018. Her next book, The Beautiful Strangers will be available spring 2019.

She appreciates you stopping by, and welcomes you to reach out and share a love of books! ~ Goodreads
