After losing her job, apartment, and latest friend-with-benefits, prize-winning newspaper journalist Cathryn Parker returns home to
Rhode Island and her domineering
mother Rita, six Chihuahuas,
and the old bedroom she slept in as a kid. Blacklisted for writing an expose on
a philandering Senator, Cathryn takes the only job offered her at Providence
Woman Monthly, if only to escape her mother's constant disapproval.
When asked to write a piece on the lack of love in the lives of women over a certain age, Cathryn is appalled, as she's part of that demography. To make things worse, the only way to ensure the magazine stays afloat and Cathryn keeps her job is if the article is a hit.
A chance meeting with her brother's best friend, Steve, finds Cathryn battling an emotional roller-coaster. Living under the Disney delusion that someday her prince would come—Steve is the perfect man, everything she's ever wanted—but he carries the physical scars of a bomb blast from Afghanistan and the emotional scars from a fiancée who left him because of it.
However, when she discovers the secret that her perfect Prince Charming has been hiding, Cathryn makes a life-changing decision, especially as she has her own secret to keep.
The novel will be available across all channels -- Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, itunes, Gardeners UK, on Christmas.
