The Career Misfits Romantic Comedy Series will appeal to fans of Sophie Kinsella who enjoy the humor and silliness but would prefer it without the steam.
Book 1 – Do As I Say
She wants a knight in shining armor. What she gets is a deadline. Justine’s old boss will not be giving her another advance to pay the rent. It’s not that he chose to quit enabling her, it’s that he woke up kind of dead. And now his stiff grandson has taken over The Ether Gazette! (242 pages, © 2019)
Book 2 – Not As I Do
Juliet doesn’t trust words. Can love get her number?
Juliet has marriage and divorce down to ones and zeroes. It’s all in her spreadsheet: expensive chairs at the wedding means trouble five years down the road; drop too much on flowers and you’re done in three. No matter what people say, numbers never lie. She’s happy running the accounting side of her mother’s wedding planner business, tucked away in the Florida Keys. It gives her all the data she needs to remind herself that she and her ex Fabio never would have worked out anyway.
So how will the numbers pencil out when her mother can’t make it for Fabio’s wedding, and Juliet must run the show? What about this handsome new variable in the shape of Cyril? After all, if you can’t trust Fabio, you certainly can’t trust his friends, can you? (200 pages, © 2019)
Book 3 – Flying Miss Fraidy
It’s mayday over Manhattan—and her job is up in the air
Alette Walker is a summa cum everything with a problem: She needs to get her career off the ground before her class reunion. As girl voted most-likely to do it all, she can’t be the one showing up jobless! After all, as her mother loves to remind her, she needs to be one hundred thousand percent.
Now a job opportunity has come up. It’s reporting for a television station in Manhattan, complete with a shot at the anchor desk. Alette is elated till she learns she’ll be reporting on traffic—from a helicopter. Thing is, Alette’s got a little secret: She is afraid of riding pretty much, well, everything. From subways and planes to pogo sticks. How will she report from 4000 feet above Manhattan? Worse, her pilot Holder Pierce is a daredevil stunt performer. So what if he’s ravishing and makes her laugh and has a Deep South accent to die for? Did we mention he’s a stunt pilot whose life dream is to roll a copter?
When Alette’s ex launches a harebrained, stunt-fuelled campaign to supplant her, all of New York will watch her fight to save her job. Is there a limit to how far she will go to preserve her perfect image? And will her barnstorming pilot Pierce help her to love the woman he does behind her carefully manicured front?
Flying Miss Fraidy is the third novel in the Career Misfits Romantic Comedy Series. If you like stubborn damsels in distress, laugh-out-loud situational comedy, and poking fun at overly serious people, you’ll love this clean romance. (224 pages, © 2019)
