Editorial Reviews


"One of those true to life books where you're cringing knowing that the characters have gone through so much and wanting so much more for them." --My Seryniti Book Reviews

"This is such an amazing read. There is heartbreak, romance, deception, murder, mystery--all entwined around an engaging cast of characters. I really enjoyed the friendship between Cleo and Sylvia, as it reminded me of some of my friendships, and how a friend's happiness can be worth taking a risk. I didn't want to put this book down, but I found myself dragging out the ending because I didn't want the story to stop!" --Chick Lit Plus

From the Author

Caramel and Magnolias

This is one of the books I wrote when I first got divorced. A lot of my sadness is reflected in the pages, but also my eternal optimism. Detective Peter Ball, who shows up in a few of my other books, is so heroic and brave. His relationship with his father shapes so much about him. When he wakes to his mother's crying at night was inspired by something in my own family. The thought of little Peter in his twin bed listening to his mother's crying never fails to bring me to tears.

Cleo Tanner was born from many of my own experiences. I studied drama at USC and dreamt of becoming an actress. I also lost a great love when I was young--not through death but a 'dumping'--and never fully recovered from that heartbreak until I loved someone else years and years later. Like Cleo, I had shut my heart down. Like her, I assumed I would never find 'my person' again. Fortunately, for both of us, that is not the case. She found her Peter Ball. I found my Cliff Strom.

I had three miscarriages before I carried a baby to full term. The doctors were mystified. Finally, my daughter Ella was so tough she hung in there for thirty-seven weeks. Before her, I had accepted that I might not have a baby. It was devastating. I will never forget that feeling. My heart goes out to any woman who experiences miscarriages or infertility. This book was partly inspired by all the women who've found alternate ways of becoming mothers. I'm humbled by their courage and perseverance.
