Our guest today: Lorraine Zago Rosenthal Why we love her: She's fresh and funny!
Her latest: New Money
The Scoop: Savannah Morgan had high hopes. She dreamed of becoming a writer and escaping her South Carolina town, where snooty debutantes have always looked down on her. But at twenty-four, she's become a frustrated ex-cheerleader who lives with her mother and wonders if rejecting a marriage proposal was a terrible mistake. Then Savannah's world is shaken when she learns the father she never knew is Edward Stone, a billionaire media mogul who has left Savannah his fortune on the condition that she move to Manhattan and work at his global news corporation. Putting aside her mother's disapproval, Savannah plunges into a life of wealth and luxury that is threatened by Edward's other children--the infuriatingly arrogant Ned and his sharp-tongued sister, Caroline, whose joint mission is to get rid of Savannah. She deals with their treachery along with her complicated love life, and she eventually has to decide between Jack, a smooth and charming real estate executive, and Alex, a handsome aspiring writer/actor. Savannah must navigate a thrilling but dangerous city while trying to figure out what kind of man her father truly was.
Our thoughts: This one is a total guilty pleasure!

LIZ & LISA PRESENT....LORRIANE ZAGO ROSENTHAL'S 5 FALL FAVES
I have so many great autumn memories! One of my favorites is going to a local fall festival with my husband. The festival takes place annually in a rural area with hills and trees, where vendors sell handmade blankets, pottery, and candles. We went there on a cool day, the air was filled with the smell of apple and pumpkin pies, and I felt like I was stepping back into a quieter, simpler time where everyone put away their cell phones and just enjoyed the season.
I love baking in the fall—especially pies, breads, and anything made with butternut squash. One of the easiest recipes I enjoy during the fall is cornbread. It goes well with so many other comfort foods.
Hot cocoa is perfect for a chilly fall day!
I really enjoy taking a long walk and admiring the beautiful foliage.
This ties into my favorite fall activity/hobby—walking outside with lots of quiet time to think usually sparks some good ideas!
