Queen Takes King by Gigi Grazer

Aaron Glickman and Gigi Grazer

W South Beach was all abuzz once again as author Gigi Grazer hosted an exclusive signing event for her fourth novel Queen Takes King. Gigi is the former wife of mega-producer Brian Grazer who she endearingly referred to as her “was”-band.

“It’s so much nicer than ex-husband,” she said.

Gigi’s past works include The Starter Wife and Maneater – both of which were adapted into television projects. According to Gigi, Queen Takes King explores the idea of being married to someone for 25 years and still knowing nothing about that person. When asked whether this idea was based on personal experience, Gigi laughed and said, “No, if anything my ex-husband knew too much about me.”

Miami to the Mountains

Where’s the best place to go to escape the scorching heat of Miami? Erin Newberg and Ashley Turchin know the spot- The Lodges at Eagles Nest in Banner Elk, North Carolina. With highs in the summer of 70 degrees and 60 degree nights, the cool mountain air of the Blue Ridge Mountains kept these Miami darlings loving life and in luxury. They did it all! Day 1: hike, ice cream and fudge at Kilwins, a car race and swing from a ropes course in the trees. Day 2: vintage shopping in the quaint towns of Blowing Rock, Boone, and Banner Elk. Day 3: hike the famous Grandfather Mountain and get messages in the Teepee Village. And if that wasn’t enough, each night they got to sleep 5,000 feet up in the sky at the top of Eagles Nest.
