Shelly Larson is in a man drought so dry it makes The Grapes of Wrath look like a Hampton’s pool party. With most of her besties (The Sweet Water Circle) in good relationship standing, The Circle spins to Shelly with a long-overdue intervention. It’s time for her to find her forever man. Or at least a guy without a foot fetish who doesn’t text pictures of himself in his tighty whities.

Shelly wants no part of the dating scene, but no matter what she tries, The Circle is ahead of her, so eventually she relents to the torturous trio of speed dating, online dating apps, and blind dates. Will she find a diamond in the rough or will it just be rough?

Meanwhile, the only Circle member still looking for love, Donna, is back from L.A., divorced and crashing with Shelly. When Donna’s new man makes a play for Shelly, it sets off shockwaves that could fracture The Sweet Water Circle’s thirty-year friendship, just as Taylor’s wedding to billionaire Ben Bach brings the crew from Sweet Water to Ibiza and Paris, not once, but twice. Will Shelly risk her friendships for a chance at forever love that could end up in heartbreak? Find out in the series finale of The Sweet Water Circle!

Tilly’s got her invite, now this single mum needs a plus one.

But she’s far too busy parenting her little girl, stopping her mum from over injecting her face with filler, and playing happy families with her pompous coffee-fuelled ex. Oh yeah, and there’s the new guy at work who is gunning for her job. So Tilly really doesn’t have time for any of the grief that relationships can bring. She just wants the fun, not the red flags.

Tilly’s too nice and she really needs to set some boundaries if she wants to be happy. Is there such a thing as the perfect plus one? Will her mother’s obsession with tweakments ever stop? Can Tilly compete with the sexy but infuriating new guy at work?

#Excerpt “Scotsman in the Stacks” by Alana Oxford

book cover

~~~

Paige wants two things: to land a full time librarian job and find the man of her dreams. On the cusp of thirty, she finds herself suddenly single and working part-time in a Michigan library. A handsome patron with a delicious accent appears at the reference desk, inadvertently sparking an idea that might help her land the promotion she so desperately needs. But that’s not the only thing he sparks.

James is in town from Glasgow, Scotland, on a summer artist residency. Luckily, the trip got him away from the pressure he feels to take over his uncle’s river tour business. He only wanted to clear his head and make his art in peace, but he wasn’t counting on finding an attractive librarian to fill his days.

With only eight weeks before James goes home to Scotland, Paige knows she should protect her heart. After all, she already wasted years with her commitment-phobe ex. But the more she gets to know James, the less she can stick to her plan to just be friends. Is she just wasting her time again, or can they bridge the ocean between them to find a happily ever after of their own?

EXCERPT

In this excerpt, main character, Paige, has just met love interest, James and is telling her BFF, Kayla about it. (Norm, who Kayla mentions, is an annoying and overly-friendly library patron that Paige has to deal with regularly.)

 

By the time she got into her apartment, she felt like she was soaring through the stars with all the force and energy of a rocket ship. No trace of closing shift exhaustion. She could stay awake all night if she had to. Maybe she would.

She popped a frozen dinner in the microwave and called Kayla. It was after nine o’clock but she couldn’t go to bed without telling her best friend about this.

“Hey,” Kayla answered. “How was work today?”

Paige felt her excitement bursting against her ribcage. She couldn’t contain it any longer.

“I met someone!” she squealed.

“Wait. What?” There was a shuffling sound as though Kayla had dropped something or was moving in to hear better.
Paige realized she may have been a tad overenthusiastic and misleading. “Well, I didn’t meet someone, meet someone, but this gorgeous Scottish guy came into the library today and he was chatty and so dreamy.”
“Tell me every single detail.”

Paige grinned and the whole story tumbled out. The accent, the blue eyes, the sleeve tattoo, all of it.

“That’s awesome! He sounds gorgeous. And that definitely sounds promising.” Kayla sounded impressed and happy for her friend.

“It would—” Paige paused a moment, coming back down to earth. “But it’s not meant to be.”
“What the heck are you talking about? He saved you from Norm. He’s coming to your book discussion. He sounds like living sex appeal. Don’t go sabotaging yourself already!”
Paige sighed. “It’s not me. It’s life. Don’t forget the part where he actually lives in Scotland. That’s a heck of a long distance commute for anyone. And he’s only here for eight weeks anyway. To be honest, I don’t even know if he’s at the beginning of those weeks or somewhere in the middle.”
“Paige, stop.” Kayla was already developing a mom voice and she didn’t even have the kid yet. “It sounds like he was interested. I guess you’ll have a better idea when he comes to the book discussion.”

“If,” Paige corrected her, discouragement taking a firmer hold of her. “Just because he seemed into it tonight doesn’t mean he’ll actually show.”

“You said he was sitting in the chair reading the book. That’s a pretty substantial clue as far as I’m concerned.”

#BookReview “A Wish For Jo (Cranley Wishes Book 2)” by Audrey Davis

book cover

~~~

5/5 Stars!

In book two of Cranley Wishes, we get Jo Milligan’s story. A supporting character in A Wish for Jinnie, the A Bit of Crumpet owner loves running her café but is yearning for more excitement in her life.

Does the answer to Jo’s dreams arrive in the form of her new assistant, Aaliyah? Maybe yes, maybe no. The outspoken young woman is also… wait for it… a genie, and will grant Jo three wishes.  Seems simple enough, but these two cannot seem to agree on anything. So, it remains to be seen if Jo can get the life she yearns for, if Aaliyah can stop being the Queen of Chaos, and if Jo’s future includes Cranley’s moody new resident.

A fun romcom, this read brings the laughter and the tears as author Audrey Davis pulls us even deeper into the Scottish village with realistic characters and friendships. Add a little magic and a lot of heart and everyone’s kept on their toes. Especially Jo.

The pragmatic Jo and brusque Aaliyah balance the story nicely. Aaliyah’s unconventional viewpoints could be off-putting… and rude in some circles, but I loved her character and her challenging attitude.

Davis’ strong writing and talent for delivering the “feels” make A Wish for Jo a winner!

(Book one, A Wish for Jinnie, should be read first!)

Enjoy!

~~~

The hilarious sequel to A Wish For Jinnie! Best read in order.

Jo Milligan’s café — A Bit of Crumpet — is her pride and joy.
But icing cakes and baking pastries in the sleepy Scottish village of Cranley isn’t hitting the sweet spot.

Jo longs for some excitement in her life. The arrival of gruff stranger Harvey Quinn doesn’t fill her with joy. Nor does the appearance of an unlikely assistant with an unexpected gift … and a serious attitude problem.

Genie Aaliyah grants Jo three wishes but coming up with ideas proves challenging.

As Jo grows closer to Cranley’s newest resident, secrets threaten to derail their relationship.

Can Jo find a way to cook up a happy ending, or do the ingredients add up to a recipe for disaster?

#NewRelease “Business Not As Usual” by Sharon C. Cooper

book cover

~~~

A woman learns the hard way about mixing business with pleasure in this hilarious new romantic comedy by USA Today bestselling author Sharon C. Cooper.

I am beautiful. I am confident. I am lovable. I am a lottery winner.

This is the mantra that will get Dreamy Daniels through each day until she makes it big. So what if she lives in a seedy part of Los Angeles in a house that’s one earthquake away from crumbling, or works an unfulfilling secretarial job while struggling to finish her bachelor’s degree? All Dreamy needs to do is win the lottery, which she’s been entering in as a weekly tradition with her grandfather. When she catches the attention of her boss’s potential investor, Dreamy has to remind herself to focus on her career goals so she can be her own boss. Who cares if he has the social grace of the Duke of Sussex and the suaveness of Idris Elba? No distractions allowed.

Growing up with a father who is an A-list actor and a socialite mother, venture capitalist Karter Redford lives in the world of the rich and famous. Instead of attending movie premieres, however, he prefers spending his time helping the less fortunate, backing start-up companies and investing in cutting edge ideas. Karter is used to his life revolving around work, but when he decides he wants someone to share it with, he falls for someone his mother would never approve of: hilarious, quirky Dreamy, who has goals of her own…but also isn’t a wealthy, upper-crust socialite. Though it’s clear they’re from different worlds, their relationship might just be his greatest investment yet.

Available at all online digital retailers!

Blurb:

Eve can juggle work, school and a fixer-upper house just fine with a little help from YouTube. Well, she could, if her beloved cat, Thor, would stop getting into trouble—like getting stuck behind the walls. Thankfully, plumbers make house calls at ridiculous-o’clock in the morning.

Enter Brent who not only has all the power tools she needs, he looks like the God Thor. A mountain of muscle with movie-star hair, shining green eyes, and a perfectly scruffed, chiseled jaw. Just great. She doesn’t have time for all the lusty neediness rising where it should not be rising.

Eve reminds herself and her weakening knees that she’s a strong, independent woman determined to make it without anyone’s help. But as more renovation and cat-astrophes pile on, she finds her fingers doing the walking to call Brent to her rescue.

And she has to decide if keeping him at arm’s length fits her life plan, or if it’s the biggest miscalculation she’s ever made.

It doesn’t help Thor seems to be in cahoots with Brent when it comes to foisting romance on her.
