Guest Post: Today, Tomorrow, Always by Peggy Jaeger

My Guest today I Peggy Jaeger talking about her new book: Today, Tomorrow, Always

Serendipity is an amazing…thing.

Last November my first book in my bridal series A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN – DEARLY BELOVED – released. I’d been wanting to write a bridal series for a while and finally had enough time in my schedule to plot out and pen the three main books of the series, each one concerning a different sister who collectively run a bridal business. I knew nothing about wedding planners, wedding Officiants, or anything else wedding related since I got married 175 years ago and things have changed a bit in the industry since then.


I did a ton of research for the books and then went about writing them.

As I said, book 1 released in November 2018.
On Christmas Eve 2018, my lovely, only daughter got engaged.
See? Serendipity.

Armed now with all the current knowledge for planning a fabulous wedding, I offered my services and was told that my daughter, my lovely, smart and frugal daughter, was hiring a wedding planner.

Yeah. That was pretty much my response, too.

But you know what? It worked to my advantage because I was now so knowledgeable about the duties of a wedding planner (DEARLY  BELOVED is about a wedding planner!) I could offer advice to my daughter on pricing, duties, etc.

So, score one for Mom and serendipity!

Book 2, TODAY, TOMORROW, ALWAYS is about wedding officiant/lawyer sister Cathy and her road to her own HEA.


Lawyer Cathleen O'Dowd wants to break free from her boring image. Widowed young, she's toed the good-girl line but now wants a little fun and laughter in her days…and nights. Living in a small town, though, she can't do anything that would tarnish her professional reputation.

Mac Frayne's tragic past has turned him into a sullen loner. In town to write a book on the city's founder, his plan is to get it done, then head home to his solitary existence.

When circumstances force them to work together, their opposing personalities clash, but the sexual attraction between them is palpable.

Can a simple affair with an end date be just the thing to brighten up their lives?


His expression changed from wide-eyed with excitement to something entirely different. Something deep and dark and—gulp—wild. 

He repeated my name, and before I could blink, a pair of strong arms wrapped around my waist and a torso I knew was as solid and defined as a redwood tree flattened against the front of me. 

He dipped his head, those dreamy eyes dark now with desire, and zeroed in on my own like a laser pointer. Hypnotized by the naked need facing me, I took a breath—a physical and a mental one—and pushed up on my unshod toes until my lips pressed against his. 

For a nanosecond, Frayne stilled. The notion that he didn’t want this blew across my mind. A beat later and the thought died as his arms tightened and he pulled me fully against his body. 

And then kissed me back. 

Peggy Jaeger is a contemporary romance writer who writes Romantic Comedies about strong women, the families who support them, and the men who can’t live without them. If she can make you cry on one page and bring you out of tears rolling with laughter the next, she’s done her job as a writer!

Family and food play huge roles in Peggy’s stories because she believes there is nothing that holds a family structure together like sharing a meal…or two…or ten. Dotted with humor and characters that are as real as they are loving, she brings all topics of daily life into her stories: life, death, sibling rivalry, illness and the desire for everyone to find their own happily ever after. Growing up the only child of divorced parents she longed for sisters, brothers and a family that vowed to stick together no matter what came their way. Through her books, she’s created the families she wanted as that lonely child.

When she’s not writing Peggy is usually painting, crafting, scrapbooking or decoupaging old steamer trunks she finds at rummage stores and garage sales.

A lifelong and avid romance reader and writer, Peggy is a member of RWA and her local New Hampshire RWA Chapter.

As a lifelong diarist, she caught the blogging bug early on, and you can visit her at where she blogs daily about life, writing, and stuff that makes her go "What??!"

Marie - thank you so miuch for hosting me today and for allowing me to introduce my Match made in heaven series to your readers and followers.


That's pretty funny. I suspect you avoided a whole lot of stress, though, by her hiring someone else. Good luck!

Even with a wedding planner, it takes a team. Best of luck with your new book baby, Peggy!
