Christina Mandelski loves to find a cozy spot (inside or out,
extra points for a water view) and arm herself with a great book, a fuzzy blanket, and a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine, depending). She loves spending time with her family, moonlights as a freelance editor and substitute teacher, and loves to travel, shop, go for long walks and obsessively watch Top Chef. When she’s not doing these things, she’s
at her laptop, dreaming up stories and writing them down.

“Aimed squarely at teenage girls, this sensitive story explores the need to embrace the reality rather than the fantasy of love, both familial and romantic.”
-Kirkus on The Sweetest Thing

-Varsha Bajaj, Author of Count me in
“Love and Other Secrets by Christina Mandelski a five-star read that will make you breathe deep to your toes and smile. This was my first read by this author and I am certain I will go back and read her other books, there was a sweet romance to this story that kept me hooked.”
