Cupid's Coffeeshop

Meet Zooey and Charlie from Coconut Iced Coffee

Coconut Iced Coffee, the eighth book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, is out today. Grab your copy here.



All my Cupid’s Coffeeshop readers know Zooey Lockhart. She’s one of the three co-owners of Cupid’s Coffeeshop, along with her brother, Patrick, and cousin, Joe. She’s celebrating her 21st birthday and is missing her annual beach trip. Joe and Patrick give her a trip to the fictional Caribbean island of San Maria. In my head, Zooey looks like a combination of Rashida Jones and Sarah Hyland.

While on San Maria, she meets Charlie Lyons. He grew up on the island but just graduated from law school. He’s come home to relax after taking the bar exam. In my head, he looks like Michael Ealy. I loved him on Almost Human. So bummed when they cancelled that show. Can you blame Zooey for falling for him?

When he and Zooey meet, they enjoy an instant connection. But can their summer fling turn into love? Find out in Coconut Iced Coffee. You might enjoy seeing the trailer too.

To celebrate the release of my eleventh book, Fireworks Frappe is FREE (until 8 August 2016). Grab some Duncan and Ava fun for you and all your friends.

Are you ready for some Fireworks Frappe?

Happy release day! Fireworks Frappe, the seventh book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, is available today. I’m delighted to share Ava and Duncan’s story with you. Ava is Amy Lane’s twin sister. Longtime readers might remember Amy from the first book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, Java Frost. Amy and Ben are tying the knot and Ava is home to do maid of honor duties.


When Ava was a teenager, she couldn’t wait to leave Ashford Falls for the bright lights of New York City. Now, she’s just lost her high powered career and come home to lick her wounds. Since she’s identical to her sister, I imagine Ava looking  just like Amy Schumer and Amy Poehler.

When she walks into Cupid’s Coffeeshop, she runs into her high school boyfriend, Duncan Knight. Duncan looks like Jensen Ackles, with hazel eyes. How handsome is he? I’ve never written a firefighter hero before but Duncan came complete with a whole crew of sexy characters to write about. So, now I’ve got a whole second series to set in Ashford Falls–just need time to write it! 🙂



Ten years ago, he stayed. Ava left. Though he’s risen to second in command at the Ashford Falls fire station, Duncan’s never gotten over Ava. Can they resurrect their love from the ashes of their dreams? Find out in Fireworks Frappe.


I also made my first ever book trailer for Fireworks Frappe. So fun! Check it out!

I’m super busy with the release and planning my (book) birthday celebration for the end of this month. I can’t believe it’s been a year already! Keep your eye out for a new pre-order for Pumpkin Spice, the tenth Cupid’s Coffeeshop book, and my first ever audiobook announcement.
