After life takes five women on different paths, a death brings them home. But friendship might not be enough to keep them together. When Bria Landon and her estranged father each inherit fifty percent of a small-town cupcake shop, her dad hires her worst enemy, and first love, to turn the place into a soulless franchise…or sell it. To save her aunt’s legacy, Bria needs the help of people who love the bakery as much as she does—her old friends who worked there fifteen years ago. Except each woman is dealing with her own problem: Juliet, who’s trying to prove she’s more than a trophy wife; Missy, a widow who fears losing the job she loves; Nell, who’s meddling mother won’t stop playing matchmaker; and Selena, a life coach who excels at fixing everyone else’s lives…but hasn’t a clue what’s missing in her own. Each woman wants to believe their friendship can overcome anything. But as the Berry Lake Cupcake Posse reunite to save their beloved cupcake shop, they soon discover the undertaking will bring more trouble than they expected.
Are desire and chemistry all two people need to be happy? Alfie says yes, Lily thinks not. Lily Parnell had never regarded herself as easily led but she had never encountered a man quite like Alfie Black before. Alfie is the typical lead singer of a band; a hot rock-god in the making and consequently women find him irresistible, charismatic and charming. The guy has sex appeal oozing from his every pour. Usually, what Alfie wants he gets— period. And Alfie wants Lily. In fact, he doesn’t just want her, he craves her. Driven by his desire, he becomes relentless in his seductive pursuit. Question is does Lily stand a chance with a guy like him. With their views sitting poles apart Lily wonders, could Alfie be everything she needs, or will he learn that Lily is stronger than he realises?
Sally: To the outside world, this city girl has it all: her own business, an upscale condo, plenty of money in the bank. After losing her mother to cancer, she’s lonely and longing for a family. A deathbed confession and a violent attack cause her to run from the only life she knows. Nolan: To the outside world, this country boy has it all: his own business, the pleasures of small town living, plenty of money in the bank. After losing his wife to cancer, he’s lonely and longing to love again, but his feet are firmly planted in the town his ancestors founded. Sally is city; Nolan is country. The only thing they have in common is losing someone they love to cancer, but is that enough to build a relationship? Can these two opposites overcome their differences and become one?
Some rules are made to be broken… I had four simple rules to get my mojo back.
- Quit being a scaredy-cat and try new things.
- Let Len help me to stop being a scaredy-cat since he got me into this mess in the first place.
- Document everything on social media for my used-to-be friends to see.
- Try not to fall in love…
Guess which rule I broke? One day changed my life. The day I confused fearlessness with recklessness, and the consequences were dire. My once carefree days were filled with nothing but fear. Six years later, after hearing about the engagement of my ex who dumped me (because our fun life had flat-lined) to the woman he replaced me with, I decided to get my mojo back.
Side-splitting, uproarious stories with a healthy dash of romance. All inspired by current events, these RomComs will have you falling in love with the more humorous side of life during these trying times.

Darren: I like control, sue me. In fact, don’t, it usually works the other way around. I have to say, my life is on track… I make decent money with a job I love, my house looks good, I have spare to help Ma. Well, the pink-haired devil begs to differ. My assistant, Sabrina Rubio, (a.k.a., the bane of my existence) has an opinion about everything, particularly about my dating life. She thinks I can fall in love just like those men in the romance books she devours. But that’s one more thing we have to disagree. Sabrina can call me a grumpy boss as much as she likes. There will be no office flirting going on at number 34, Main Street – Yellow Meadows. Between her steamy romance books and her crass humour, I’m pretty sure her main goal is to drive me insane. Sabrina: His lips curls inside his mouth, nostrils flare. Janey, I made him angry, didn’t I? Oops.
