Happy Ever After
***A Finalist in the Romance Australia Romantic Book Of The Year (RUBY) Awards***When the biggest vow of all is broken, do you only get one chance at a happy ever after?
Kate and Neil met at a protest march in Sydney in August 1985 – Kate was marching, Neil wasn’t. It was love almost at first sight.
Over thirty years have passed, their children have grown, and Kate and Neil have gone from being happily married to being happily separated. That is until Neil asks for a divorce – and another wedding brings up feelings they’d both thought were long gone.
Kate and Neil fall in love all over again, but the repercussions are unexpected and far-reaching. Will Kate be able to overcome a whole new set of challenges to find her happy ever after?
Happy Ever After is a love story, but more than that it’s a story about love. It’s a story about how love changes, grows and is challenged over the years. It’s about the curve balls life throws us just when we’re ready to begin realising our dreams. It’s about living the better or for worse and richer and poorer thing and it’s about coming out the other side. It’s about family, friends, second, third and even fourth chances for a happy ever after. Mostly though, it’s about love.

Big Girls Don’t Cry
Theirs was a love that had survived the years – and the odds.
Brad and Abby were always meant to be together. Best friends in childhood, they fell immediately in love when they found each other again many years later. Yet when Brad proposes, Abby says no. She is distraught when, soon after, Brad leaves Melbourne – and her.
What’s holding Abby back from being with Brad? All she knows is that it has something to do with what happened to her father in Bali nearly twenty-five years ago. But when Abby goes searching for answers, she finds out much more than she bargained for.
If Abby and Brad are going to get a second chance at first love, Abby will need to discover the truth behind lies that have protected secrets that have been kept for many years.
Funny and poignant, Big Girls Don’t Cry is a story about families, about the lies people tell to protect themselves and those they love, and about how dealing with yesterday can help you find love in tomorrow.
Baby, It’s You
A vintage coat, a hot new co-worker and a stranger’s bucket list – what could possibly go wrong?
Emily Porter likes lists: daily to-do lists, shopping lists, playlists, reasons to dump her boyfriend lists, reasons to stay with her boyfriend lists.
The one list Em doesn’t have is a bucket list. She doesn’t need one –her life is predictable and safe. Her job is satisfactory, and even though she has a thing about men who wind up back with the woman they were rebounding from – after Em has fixed them up, that is – her love life is also as expected. Besides, her best friends – Susie Turner and Josh Booth –will always be there to see her through her dating disasters.
No drama, no fuss, no surprises – which is exactly the way Em likes it.
But when Em finds a stranger’s bucket list in the pocket of a vintage coat and begins to use it to renovate her home – and her life – everything gets turned upside down.
As if dealing with paint-brushes, flat-pack furniture and power tools isn’t scary enough, Em has to contend with Jamie, the hot new co-worker who has made it clear he wants to be more than her colleague. In the meantime, Booth is acting strangely and Suse has a secret that could threaten everything…
