Opposites attract in this sweet holiday rom com—but will this small-town sweetheart and her mysterious new neighbor be a perfect match or a recipe for disaster?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…unless you’re me.

This year, Christmas means chaos. My sister’s getting married and I—Gwen Griffin, perfectionist extraordinaire—will make sure her wedding is flawless. That includes doing the impossible: finding myself a wedding date. But in my tiny hometown of Jasmine Falls, South Carolina, I’ll have better luck winning the lottery.

The guy next door is perfect for the job. Gorgeous and charming, Logan Fyfe is only here for a few weeks. He’s also a hot Scottish bazillionaire who’s totally out of my league—so my risk of falling into a relationship with him? Less than zero.

Fake-dating Logan is the perfect plan—until my feelings become genuine. Beneath his devilish smirk and delicious brogue is a big-hearted man who makes me feel the one thing I never believed to be true—that I’m enough, just the way I am.

We may be worlds apart, but I’m done pretending. It’s time to get real…even if it means risking my heart.

One week. Two rivals. What happens when their pretend chemistry becomes the real deal?

Last week Sadie Harper was living her best life as a beloved park ranger in a cozy woodland cabin. This week? She’s lost it all—and is stuck playing hostess at her parents’ inn and feeling like a failure. Things can’t possibly get any worse… until the one person she never wanted to see again checks into the Jasmine Falls Inn.

James Fielding: famous travel writer, internet darling. Once he was Sadie’s biggest college rival and turned everything into a competition. His new show could mean a boon for Jasmine Falls’ small businesses—so everyone’s counting on Sadie to tamp down her snark and show him a slice of small-town heaven.

Their sizzling chemistry is TV gold: Sadie’s sharp tongue is the perfect complement for James’s easygoing charm. So when James’s producer offers Sadie a lead role, she agrees—because she can’t pass on a chance to beat James at his own game and outshine him on set.

It’s all win-win until their rivalry heats up…and Sadie realizes that there’s nothing fake about how James has stolen her heart.

Fiona wants to get her chaotic life in order—not to fall in love. But then she meets the guy next door…

Fiona’s life has hit the wall. Ditched by her fiance, and with her once-booming art career caught in a death spiral, she’s completely lost the inspiration that fueled her work and brought her joy. With her savings dwindling, she needs a reset—fast.

One surprise phone call gives her a new plan for the summer: go back to her tiny hometown of Jasmine Falls to care for her beloved, ailing aunt and put herself back together. But when she arrives, she’s horrified to find that her new neighbor is Alex Fox, the bad boy who first broke her heart.

Fiona tries to ignore him–and her growing attraction. But Alex is more irresistible than ever, and eager to help Fiona get back on her feet again… because he wants to win back her stubborn little heart—no matter what it takes.

“Irresistibly relatable characters, a charming small town setting, and downright delicious—The Almost Lovebirds has everything I want in a novel, which is why I tore through it in less than 24 hours. I’ll read anything Lucy Day writes.” —Camille Pagán, bestselling author of Good for You

Each book in the Jasmine Falls Loves Stories series can be read as a standalone. Look for the next novel in Summer 2024!

Old bonds are mended and new love blooms in this sweet (short) romantic comedy.

I’m the worst bridesmaid ever.

My dress is hideous, the church is hotter than the surface of the sun, and the bride (my cousin Emmy) has gone missing. What could be worse?

Plenty. One of the groomsmen is Jake Caldwell—my best friend in high school and my biggest crush. That is, until the night I did the dumbest thing ever and blew our friendship to smithereens. Eight years ago, I was left humilated and heartbroken—and that stuff about “time healing all wounds”? That’s a big fat lie. I haven’t spoken to Jake since, and I’d like to keep it that way.

Well. That’s not entirely true.

Part of me wonders how things might have turned out differently—if only I’d been brave enough to tell him what was in my heart. And the way he looks at me with that smoldering gaze and rakish smile tells me he feels the same.

But I can’t think about that right now: I have a bride to find.

When Jake jumps in to help me—because he’s still that kind of guy—it’s all I can do to focus on anything but him. Once upon a time, he was the person who knew me better than anyone else. He was my best friend. My first love. But after all this time, could I have a second chance to fix my biggest mistake?
