The Westmount Conservatory, a little oasis of plants and flowers on Sherbrooke St., is one of the "best places for stealing a kiss," according to Journalism Professor Linda Kay, who has just launched a second edition of her book, Romantic Days and Nights in Montreal, a guide to the sensual side of Montreal. This edition is meant to be younger and hipper than the first one, published two years ago. It also has a new feature -- lists of "bests" for the romantically inclined. Kay launched her book recently at Chapter's bookstores downtown and on the West Island.
