This is an LGBTQ rom-com that will have you saying “I do!” in no time. Just fired and head-over-heels with the sexy new engineer in town, Amy lands an unlikely job as a bridesmaid-for-hire. When everything goes wrong on someone’s big day, she makes it all go right. But, sadly, Amy can’t quite make things go right for herself, especially as a queer woman in Tulsa, OK, prohibited from walking down the aisle herself. Dumond combines sharp characterization with extreme comic verve and a smart take on love and marriage. It’s as warm, tasty, and intoxicating as one of Amy’s fresh-baked strawberry champagne cupcakes. (Recipe included on the back of the book!)
The second book in Daria's Primas of Power series is a childhood-best-friends-to-lovers story that doesn't disappoint. Michelle and Gabe were fanfiction-writing teenagers the last time they spoke, before Gabe needed to rebrand his gym for a new location. When these two reconnect, sparks and words fly, and an old wound is healed through a week spent in the same house. With a sizzling romance and heartfelt friendships, this book is designed for a cozy afternoon and a cup of tea (or wine!).
The first book in the Brown Sisters trilogy, this is a cute, cheesy romance with funny dialogue that nonetheless delves into serious topics such as chronic illness and mental health.The main characters, Chloe Brown and Redford Morgan, are both likeable and independent--even when they get together, they still pursue their own interests--and though it’s a hate-to-love story, I was rooting for both of them in their separate endeavors. And, for audio-book afficionados, the taped version features a great British narrator.
