Dreaming in Chocolate is a SIBA Winter 2018 Okra Pick

Okra Pick_TwitterThe Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) has announced their Winter 2018 Okra Picks. And I’m thrilled to see Dreaming in Chocolate on the list!

Okra Picks are the books that Southern indie bookstores are most excited to hand sell, the ones they think readers will devour and then push on their friends. So, to be selected is a huge honor.

With just under a month to go before Dreaming in Chocolate hits shelves, I hope you’ll stop by your local indie and ask them to pre-order your copy. Or you can buy online through IndieBound and still support your local store!

Dreaming In Chocolate: 1 Month To Go

Twitter Quote - RT Book Reviews

My next novel, Dreaming in Chocolate, releases one month from today! It’s a story of first love and second chances and magical hot chocolate that just might make you a believer in fate. Some are comparing it to Gilmore Girls (Kirkus Reviews) and others say it reminds them of This Is Us (PopSugar). So, if that sounds like your kind of story, you can pre-order it now and have it arrive in your mailbox once it’s out. Here are some links to make buying easier:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Books-A-Million | Book Depository | Indie Bound | Powells 

Or you can go to your local indie (or library!) and request they order a copy. I would be ever so grateful. ❤

Happy Book Birthday to Laura Heffernan and Sweet Reality

Release Date: September 5, 2017




Jen Reid’s life after walking off a reality show has been great–she’s gone from being a broke twenty-four-year-old Seattleite with no love life and no job to the twenty-five-year-old who got the guy, moved to Miami, and is starting a bakery with her best friend. She thinks her showmance love might be about to propose. And with mouthwatering goodies based on everyone’s favorite shows, her business, Sweet Reality, is destined for success.

That is, until a killer competitor opens right across the street. If she’s going to save Sweet Reality, Jen has to come up with a secret ingredient–like the recipe that won Totally 80s Bake-Off. Jen can get it–if she steps back into the spotlight. Soon she and her boyfriend are out to sea on a cruise ship full of reality stars, including her nemesis, Ariana; her lying, cheating ex; and some wicked producers looking to bring the drama. Separate cabins, “surprises” from her past, and scenarios tailor-made to spark fights are just the beginning. But with her self-respect, her business, and her future on the line, the fallout from this made-for-TV plotline will be all too real . . .
