Review by Marlene Engel
Living in La La Land (aka Los Angeles), where a size 4 is considered over-weight and sleeping one’s way to the top is the norm, Lila’s ready for a change. Holding the invitation for her fifteenth high school reunion, she thinks maybe going back to her hometown is just the respite she needs. However concerns about the welcome she’ll receive when she shows up husband and childless gives her pause.
But, Lilia Montgomery has a secret … she is the New York Times best-selling author of She Sins At Midnight. Embarrassed of what her family and friends would think if they read her erotica infused book, she published under a pen name. Her secret‘s safe until her publisher informs her that she’s up for a RITA award, the romance world’s equivalent to an Oscar!
As she embarks on her journey, it’s a whirlwind of events. Beginning with seeing her book at the airport gift shop and the Adonis of a man who tries striking up conversation, to the peculiar way her parents are acting and her best friend who’s life Lila wishes she had (complete with husband and kids), but finds out isn’t being fulfilled by. Oh, and did I mention this was all just on the first day back home?
She Sins At Midnight is a fun, laugh-out-loud novel about taking chances, discovering one’s self and enjoying the ride along the way. This book was so entertaining and the characters so amusing that I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a sequel.

About the Author:
While attending the University of Illinois in Chicago, Whitney Dineen was discovered by a local modeling agent and began an unexpected career as a plus-size Ford model. She modeled in New York City before moving to Los Angeles with her husband.
When she wasn’t modeling, she was in the kitchen, baking delights to share with friends. Soon, her friends began asking her to send baskets of her wonderful candies and cookies to business associates, agents and production studios. Word spread like wildfire, and the rest, as they say, is history. Whitney’s sensational creations are still in great demand by her loyal celebrity clientele.
During “The Hollywood Years,” Whitney was bitten by the writing bug and started creating characters that are inspired by strong women with a great sense of humor.
In addition to her love of chick-lit, Whitney has also written a series of adventure books for middle readers. The first of which, Wilhelmina and the Willamette Wig Factory, is nearing completion.
Whitney and her husband, Jimmy, have recently relocated to the beautiful Pacific Northwest to raise their children, chickens and organic vegetables.
