Love is the worst complication…

Carrie’s life lessons:
Never have closet sex with a neighbor
Never sing to a crying dog thinking you’re alone
Never crash a wedding. Ever.
After a failed marriage and quitting her high-pressure job, Carrie Steinhem is ready for uncomplicated fun. Love? Not what she’s looking for. She’d rather crash a wedding with her friends and find a hot hookup. The bride’s father is onto her, though. Just as her night out veers toward public embarrassment, a sizzling stranger sweeps in and claims Carrie as his date.

Potential hookup? Check. If she doesn’t get cold feet first.

Ryan Burton is on the fast track to a promotion…assuming he can avoid distractions and nail this new account. Except the woman he rescued at a friend’s wedding ends up not only being his new neighbor—she’s his client’s ex-wife. And his client has every intention of winning her back.

Growing up in the picturesque small town of Mystic, Connecticut, Scarlett assumed that small town love would be thrown into her lap. Hallmark movies preached it. Perfected it. Promised it.

She is a baker, for God’s sake. Something the romantic Gods love. Yet the closest she has been to love is a failed relationship and a dysfunctional family. Taking a leap of faith, she packed up her life and moved to the other side of the country, hoping to reignite the possibility of small-town love in Astoria, Oregon. Yet two years later, her love life is still a big, fat nothing. Nada. Zero.
