Loving your sisters is easy. Liking them is the hard part.
Meet the Skatt sisters—five redheads with absolutely nothing in common but their fierce love for each other. In the town of Forest Hills, the sisters are famous for their father abandoning them, the ghost of their mother hanging around the family home, and the legendary fights between the youngest girls, Brenna and Cat.
After graduating at the top of her class, Brenna shakes the small-town, mushroom smelling dirt off her sneakers and leaves everything behind, settling as far away from the tiny Northern Ontario town as she can. But after fourteen years, all it takes is one cheating husband and a possible assault charge for Brenna to realize the only option she has left is to go home.
The youngest of the five sisters, Cat wants nothing to do with Brenna’s return. She grew up in the shadow of her brilliant sister but after Brenna left, Cat found happiness in the small town, content to live in the family home with the ghost of their mother. She left a trail of broken hearts and failed marriages in her wake before finding love with Brenna’s ex, Seamus. With Brenna coming home, Cat’s afraid Brenna will take back what she left behind, including Seamus.
Sibling rivalries, old grudges, and at least one knock-out, drag-down kitchen fight ensues as Brenna and Cat are forced under the same roof. They may be sisters but are there too many grudges and too much jealousy for them to be friends?
“Holly Kerr has done a beautiful job of crafting a family with real relationships--and an absolute delight to read.”

Loving your sisters is easy. Watching them hurt is the hard part.
The Skatt sisters are notorious in the tiny town of Forest Hills for their redheads’ temper, sisterly fights and their father leaving them with their mother and her questionable mental stability. When she dies, eldest sister Maggie steps in to take care of her sisters.
Maggie and Mike are just as famous. After a teenage pregnancy that ended happily with a strong marriage and five daughters of their own, they’re a force to be reckoned with in the tiny town.
But when the unthinkable happens, Maggie is blindsided with the grief. For months, Maggie finds comfort in her talks with Mike's ghost, but the list of things Maggie can’t bring herself to tell him begins to add up; things like grandbabies, and his girls having boyfriends, and Brady Todd, not to mention the fight with the customer at FoodMart and the visit from the police.
And Maggie can't tell Mike about the return of Ben Higgins, because how do you talk to the ghost of your dead husband about the fact she thinks she might be ready to move on with another man?
Luckily, Maggie's sisters are there for her, if she'll only let them.

They tell me I'm a spy.
"If you accept this mission, you should expect well-developed characters and a satisfying plot with twists that carry you through the end."
They say I'm one of the country’s best and brightest, but since when has Canada had spies? All I know is that Luke and I are happy together, and even though my office temp jobs are boring, boring isn’t bad.
I’ve never told anyone about my dreams; night after night, full of scenes straight from the spy movies I love. In these dreams, I’m on secret missions, with dangerous car chases and I'm always beating the bad guys. And I definitely don’t want to tell anyone about all those dreams of the sexy guy with blue eyes. Those should definitely be marked private and confidential!
It might feel like something is missing in my life, but that doesn’t mean I’m a spy!
But after a chance encounter on the streets of Toronto, I end up single-handedly beating off the bad guys with a rolled-up magazine. And then there’s a high-speed car chase, and people shooting at me! I finally get away, only to be taken to a private jet filled with what can only be a group of secret agents. Spies.
And they say they know exactly who I am.
Who am I? And who exactly is the hunky guy with the blue eyes, and why do I get butterflies when I’m near him?
When my past crashes into my present, I’ve got to trust my instructs, as well as my dream guy, so I can save the world.
Because, apparently, that’s what I do.

As Flora makes her escape from the chapel in Las Vegas, she barrels into Dean and it changes everything.
They never expect to spend the night together.
One perfect night where they share everything but names, numbers, or even Facebook pages. In the morning, Dean leaves without waking Flora, thinking the note he leaves will be enough.
Maybe it would have been if Flora had found it.
Once they get back to the real world, Flora can’t stop thinking about Dean. And Dean keeps dreaming of Flora. Could they be closer than they think?
When fate steps in with a bouquet of flowers, will Flora and Dean get a second chance at love? And will they be ready to take it?
With a hint of Runaway Bride and a bit of Serendipity, Flora and Dean discover some love stories are perfectly played.
This isn't a book on how to get pregant.
"Perfect for a bath and wine, or a read on the beach. Be warned, though, that I picked it up and finished it the next day. I was hooked."
Because there's no way I should be teaching that. I have a history of picking the wrong guys—the player, the stalker, and the last, the cheater. I caught him at a wedding of all places. Thankfully it wasn’t my own.
Being a mother has always been my biggest dream, but with the countless epic fails in my romantic past, how do I find a father for my baby? I’ve got my own mother’s ancient copy of The Young Woman’s Guide to the Joy of Impending Motherhood which tells me babies are best conceived before the age of 37. Even though every part of me screams no, impatience is winning and I’m tired of listening to the biological tick tock.
I had one decent ex-boyfriend, and when he walks back into my life with perfect rom-com timing, I jump on the chance that he’s going to be the perfect solution to getting everything I’ve ever wanted.
But because this is me, it’s a drunken night with my roommate J.B. that produces more than the usual hangover. J.B. was already on the list of my dating disasters and although he’s an amazing roommate with his sexy blue eyes and awe-inspiring culinary skills, he’s also a player who hides from commitment just as quick as I can pick out guy who’s guaranteed to be a dating dud.
Except J.B. isn’t hiding. I’m ready to do the baby thing on my own, but J.B. isn’t making a move to get out of the way.
Find out how Casey deals with the unexpected in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about second chances (and third...and fourth...)
Too bad there’s no recipe for love.
M.K. can bake anything for her patisserie—mouth-watering pastries, delicious macarons, buttery croissants. But a broken heart has left her hiding in the kitchen, dodging well-meaning match-ups, rather than trying to find Mr. Right.
Until a trip to Las Vegas leads her to the bright, white smile of Clay.
M.K. falls hard—fast, furious, sickening-sweet Instalove. And it’s the same for Clay. After a first date filled with cats and cupcakes and spiteful ex-girlfriends, M.K. and Clay know they’re meant to be together.
Sound perfect? It is—until an old girlfriend shows up and wants Clay to play Daddy with their son, a baby Clay never knew existed. M.K. doesn’t want to lose Clay, but babies have never part of her plan, especially someone else’s.
There’s no recipe for this.
In Perfectly Played, M.K. and Clay watched friends Flora and Dean fumble on their way to a happily ever after. Now it’s time for their story.

I’m Charlotte Dodd. I'm a spy.
"A wonderful introduction to a fun series and highly recommended!"
I'm Canada’s best spy, actually. But just as important, I’m finally, happily in love with Ham Short. So happy and so in love, and so happy to be in love because it took us a while, especially with the little roadblock of him being my handler and practically running the NIIA, the covert spy organization my family works for. But we made it.
But because of his role in the NIIA, I can’t tell him about the mission my brother Seamus brought to me. This time I’m not trying to save the world, but my mother. After being told she was killed in action when I was little, now Seamus has proof that she’s alive.
Did Ham know she’s still alive?
Seamus and I going against Ham’s instructions and are going to infiltrate one of the world’s most dangerous prisons in the world to rescue her.
Even though we don’t have much of a plan, and no Ham to back us up.
"This is the prequel to Secret Life of Charlotte Dodd and I can’t wait to read the series."
Find out how it all begins.
No one has ever stolen from me—especially not my heart.
"...a mad romp that is witty, entertaining and fast-paced."
There’s a reason they call me the It Girl of European espionage circles—I can steal anything from anywhere.
I’ve gotten to the top of my game by following three rules: Keep it simple. Nothing matters but the mission. Spies don’t fall in love.
My latest mission in Toronto won’t put the world in too much danger and will get me the hard-fought respect of Lysander Mochrie, the man who helped me become the best agent in Ireland. But deep down, I’m afraid that this might be the mission that will turn me into one of the bad guys.
I never counted on the NIIA, led by Canadian super-spy, Charlotte Dodd, to get in the middle of things, and now I’ve got to hurry and get the info they stole back to Lysander because he won’t stand for mistakes. I need to finish things, do whatever it takes, and if I can take down NIIA in the process, so much the better.
I’ve got a plan and it’s a good one, at least until a pair of blue eyes and a fast car get in my way.
Declan’s cute, funny, and sweet but I can’t forget Declan’s sister is the one standing in my way of completing the mission.
There’s a reason spies don’t fall in love, especially with the good guys.
The adventures of Charlotte Dodd continue in The Hidden Past of Pippa McGovern.
I don’t want to go on this date.
"Author Holly Kerr has created a fabulous new genre 'Women’s Adventure Chick Lit'" - Happy Reader
When Colin, the cute Brit with the shy smile asks me out, I don’t want to go. He seems like a nice enough guy, but is he worth the hassle of a new lipstick and missing my daughter’s goodnight call? I’m a single mom running my own café, so saying I don’t have a lot of free time is an understatement. But it’s my daughter who makes me go because she thinks I don’t have a life.
I do, it’s just a busy one. And it involves lists, and plans, and being organized. I don’t do well with last-minute stuff.
Despite my better judgment, I agree, and things start off surprisingly well—maybe too well. But when Colin’s ex crashes into the middle of our date, things start to go very wrong. I end up in the middle of a robbery, there’s a slam-dam fistfight, and Colin and I get kidnapped.
Oh, and Colin isn’t the cute, charming guy I thought he was. He’s a spy. British secret service, to be exact. And he’s on the trail of a disk containing the lost memories of someone named Charlotte Dodd.
The best date quickly turns into one of the worst as I have to fight to save what’s mine, showing everyone I more than anyone has ever given me credit for.

Love means wanting to share your popcorn but Ruthie can't do it.
Ruthie’s a free spirit, moving in and out of relationships faster than a Baby Yoda meme goes viral. It’s easier being the heartbreaker rather than letting anyone get close enough to be disappointed.
Trev is a teacher, plodding along on his screenplay in his spare time, which he now has lots of, thanks to a recent breakup. He isn’t looking for love, although his mother thinks differently, spending more time than she should playing match-maker.
Their meet-cute is more loathing than love, involving wine, a ruined shirt and enough banter to raise the eyebrows of their friends. Even though everyone seems to be finding love, neither Ruthie or Trev think it’s in the cards for them.
Except that Ruthie keeps popping up in Trev’s life, and the more he time he spends with her, the more Trev looks for ways to see her again. And Ruthie starts to worry that this time, it’s not going to be Trev’s heart that will be broken.
Pass the popcorn.
After Flora and M.K., now it's time to fall in love with Ruthie!
