My dear friend Gail Riley and her husband Tom Statzell own a wonderful inn here in Colorado, Highland Haven Creekside Inn. In the charming town of Evergreen (about an hour’s drive from Denver) along the banks of Bear Creek, Gail and Tom have created a magical retreat with luxurious private cabins, suites, rooms and their latest labor of love, the TreeHouse.
Highland Haven has been the setting for many marriage proposals, honeymoons and anniversaries, so it’s fitting that Gail wrote a book about romance.
Colorado Romance: Love Notes and Recipes for Happiness is filled with Gail’s sumptuous recipes and menus, photos, memories, and plenty of ideas for celebrating and fostering romance. She also shares a selection of writings from the guest journals that are in each room, and I can never read these tender thoughts about love and relationships without getting choked up.
This gorgeous, 152-page book retails for $35.00, and you could win your very own copy. In honor of Valentine’s Day, Gail has generously donated a hardback edition to give away to one lucky reader.
