A Note From Jeane: In addition to Thin, A Diet Romance and many historical novels, I’ve written The Thin Books-365 Daily Aids, a book reprinted many times, selling over 250,000 books in many countries. I invite you to visit my website www.jeanewestin.com to view all my current work.
About my historical novels:
When I was a child, my family seemed to be steeped in the love of historical lore.
I heard stories of my ancestors, the Dutch ship captain who eloped with a young French woman to settle in New York and Maryland. Another, who fought in the Revolutionary war at Valley Forge…but fortunately for him, in the summer.
My one grandfather told me stories of his Virginia grandfather, a Confederate cavalryman and showed me his sword with a once gilt tassel hanging from the hilt. My other grandfather recited a story of his grandfather who joined the Union army and lost a best friend, who fought for the south. For the rest of their lives, they passed in their little town on the opposite sides of the street and never spoke.
It’s clear to me now that I was meant to be a reader and writer of historical novels from a very early age. My mother took me to the library when I was six to get my library card and to choose my first book. The one that most caught my attention was The Little Cave Boy and Girl, the first of a series about children through history. From that beginning, I continued to read historical non-fiction and fiction all my life, always fascinated by every aspect of earlier times. (Don’t tell anyone, but I took books on my honeymoon and I can remember my husband’s puzzlement when he saw me reading The History of Diseases. “It’s interesting,” I explained…difficult for a bridegroom to believe. He’s since seen me read many similar books without surprise.)

Thin, A Diet Romance
by Jeane Westin
Fredricka Quinn is a smart young caterer and part owner of Truffles and Tarts who loses a hundred plus pounds and triumphs over her body only to fall victim to the voracious diet industry’s media machine. She overcomes her new addition to fame, takes revenge over her bullying college roommate, gains and loses old love, finds a new, unlikely man to love and in the process her own true way.
