  1. Thank you for the link, KC! Patricia Medina was a lovely woman. It's interesting to me that her obituary is receiving much higher than normal traffic on my blog. It appears she was quite popular!

    I've got to get over to Comet Over Hollywood and check out that contest! :)

    Best wishes,

  2. Laura--I don't know much about Patricia Medina, but I do remember hearing about her book. It's on my library list now, though who knows when I'll get a chance to read it. There's so many good new books out there right now!
