Marriage Proposal In Acknowledgement

Stories like this warm my female heart...and make me (the writer) wish I'd thought of something equally as brilliant!

Aussie mystery author Christopher Currie proposed to his girlfriend via the acknowledgement page of his upcoming novel, The Ottoman Motel.

He wrote, "To my favourite, to the reason I live my life, Leesa Wockner, who, if she reads this, I hope will agree to marry me, despite the number of commas in this sentence."

She said yes, even before he managed to show her the ring and get down on bended knee. I heart real life stories like that! :)

How's that for a hook in a new mystery...and a happily-ever-after?!

The Ottoman Motel is definitely on my TBR list. Oh, and kudos to the happy couple!
