A note from the publisher, Gwen Lord:
It is a pleasure to be able to bring you the second in the series of fanzines by Chuckie Burge, who lives in the USA. Way back in 1995. my dear friend Kathy Bayne from New Jersey, USA, gave me a manuscript to read, which I quickly turned into "Holiday For Lovers" when I saw Chuckie's style of writing was just what B&B fans adore. You proved me right when requests started to pour in for us to do a sequel. This has had to be delayed until now. due to Chuckie being very ill. On her return to health, she has returned to her computer, and here is your sequel. I would like to thank Chuckie with all my heart for her help, love and friendship. If you like this story as much as the first. please tell us. so we can think about a number 3. We had the story. now we have the fanzines, and you are the reader, the three ingredients to help keep this wonderful dream alive. The spirit of B&B, and the friendships forged by B&B, are a special part of our lives now.
