Not getting enough of cracked Connie on a daily basis? You're in luck. Next spring will see the release of "Love In Maine" by Connie Falconeri. The book has been a big part of recent plots on the soap. It is, of course, not written by Connie/Kate (Kelly Sullivan) but actually penned by Port Charles prodigy, Molly Lansing Davis (Haley Pullos). The novel is being published by Hyperion.

You can put in your order for a copy right now on Amazon, but it will not be released until March 26, 2013. "Reading 'Love in Maine' is like spending a fun afternoon with an old friend. It’s warm and witty, and the characters feel familiar from page one. It’s a perfect summer read," says Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy), who just happens to be the author of the last "GH" tie in novel, "The Secret Life of Damian Spinelli."
