Book Launch for Award-Winning Journalist Rolonda Watts

Chevalier’s is thrilled to host the kick-off event for Destiny Lingers, a contemporary romance novel by Rolonda Watts. Please join us at the bookstore on Wednesday, March 16th at 7pm for a reading, discussion and signing by the author.

As an investigative news reporter in New York City, Destiny uncovers breaking stories every day, but she has yet to uncover the truth of her own life-until the morning she discovers a strand of red hair on her husband’s pillow. Unfortunately, the only person Destiny knows with red hair is her best friend, Eve.

DestinyLingersA story of sacrifice, radical divide in the South, betrayal and familial strife, Destiny Lingers is an unputdownable read. Watts proves herself a player with this quintessential romance novel.

Destiny Lingers received one of the final endorsements from the late Dr. Maya Angelou:

“I fell for this story and the characters novelist Rolonda Watts introduced. I was not happy to finish the book. In fact, I satisfied myself reaching the end by thinking that Ms. Watts will write a sequel soon and very soon. She is a good writer and a good storyteller. Come on Ms. Watts, let the story continue.”
