To: You – readers whom I adore
From: Me – Debra H. Goldstein
When: April 19, May 17, June 21, and July 19, 2022
Time: 7 PM CST/ 8 PM EST (and you can figure out the rest)
What: A celebration of each of the Sarah Blair books … let me explain:
It appears that Five Belles Too Many, which will be released on June 28, 2022, will be the last in the series. I could bemoan that fact as some of you have been doing to me and directly to Kensington, but instead I am celebrating the journey that you, my readers, and I have been on together by throwing a series of virtual Read-A-Long parties. Each party focuses on discussing themes and concepts in one of the books in the series plus having an Ask the Author Anything session.
The first one, where we discussed One Taste Too Many, was held in March. It was a huge success. Not everyone who was on the Zoom call had read the book, but it didn’t matter. We talked about concepts, themes, and why I did certain things without giving away any of the plot spoilers.
The next Read-A-Long, on April 19, will discuss Two Bites Too Many. To request the study guide and link please send an email to DHG@DebraHGoldstein.com . The remainder of the series, Three Treats Too Many, Four Cuts Too Many, and of course, Five Belles Too Many, will be our topics for the May, June, and July sessions. The goal is to have fun and get a better understanding of these books culminating in the month when Five Belles is published.
I mentioned above that I am celebrating the journey of the Sarah Blair series, and I am. I have had a blast writing Sarah, the woman who is more afraid of the kitchen than murder, but more importantly, it has been a joy getting to know you, the readers.
Want to catch up on Sarah Blair so you’re ready for the big finish in July? You can pre-order Five Belles or start at the beginning – Amazon has the e-version of One Taste Too Many on sale for $1.99. For a chance to win an ARC of Five Belles Too Many, leave a comment below telling me what you like about the Sarah Blair series and whether you prefer to read the books in a series in order or however you pick them up.
Looking forward to seeing you on April 19 for Two Bites Too Many!

Aww nuts! I truly love this series. Sarah Blair is an amazing character (and I’m not just saying that because finally we get a Sarah with a h like me lol). What I love most about her is that even in the midst of her fears, she pulls her boot straps up and carries on anyway. She is fearless in amongst her fears. I absolutely adore that. And who doesn’t love Rah Rah? I’ve enjoyed the entire community and all of the funny characters. Kensington, if you’re reading this. We want MORE Sarah and Rah Rah, not less! Anyway, in answer to your question, I try to always start at the beginning but sometimes if a book interests me then I’ll start with that one out of order.
Thank you for your kind remarks. I love this series, too. You can always write Kensington directly in case they aren’t reading this:).
I’m sorry to see this series end. I loved Sarah as soon as she told the bad guy to take the money, just give me the cat. Reading a series out of order would be like reading the chapters in a book out of order. Just wrong. Thank you for the wonderful stories.
Thank you for your kind words…and for appreciating Sarah’s love for RahRah.
Just to pick one thing about Sarah Blair Series is a tough thing to do so the one thing I like is everything.
I usually prefer to read a series in order but have read books in a series out of order. Also usually I try to read in order because they make more senseless unless the author states they can be read as stand alone.
Love the book cover, title and excerpt. Would love to read & reviews books in print format.
I feel the same way except that some series, I have started in the middle. For example, I didn’t know about Sue Grafton until someone gave me “I”. I then read them all and continued reading them.
And the random winner of the Five Belles Too Many arc is Carol K.
