The Bucket List (2022)


Drunk Mockup.png
Drunk on a Plane
Drunk on a Plane (Hickory Hollow #1)

​Those little bottles of airplane liquor add up fast. Eric Caretti discovers this while drowning his relief on the way to his destination wedding. Alone. Sort of. He hadn't counted on his cheating ex-bride-to-be's (bride-to-have-been's?) cousin being there to help get his drunk self to the cruise ship.

Megan Prescott jumps at the chance to photograph her cousin’s cruise wedding. It's the perfect opportunity to build her travel portfolio… and put some distance between her and her anxious, controlling mother. The last thing she expects is to spend ten days at sea with her cousin's jilted groom.

Megan and Eric reluctantly spend their days together, swimming with dolphins, exploring Mayan ruins, and becoming friends.

Just friends.

Because anything more would be inappropriate.

Caller Number Nine
Caller Number Nine (Hickory Hollow #2)

When workaholic veterinarian Margo Lewis wins a radio call in contest for a weeklong glamping vacation at picturesque Hickory Hollow Campground, she convinces herself to relax and enjoy it.

Emphasis on relax.

She arrives at the campground and discovers her next-door-neighbor for the week is none other than Connor Anderson, the selfish jerk who smashed her heart back in high school.

Not relaxing.

Her entire family shows up at the campground as a "surprise." Margo hates surprises.

Not relaxing at all.

Oh yeah, and Margo's stepmom invited Margo's ex-fiancé in the hopes of getting them back together.

Dream vacation? More like a nightmare.


Still reeling from his brother's death, Conner Anderson takes winning a camping vacation as a good sign. He can hardly believe his good fortune when his neighbor turns out to be his first love.

He's been waiting years to apologize.

All he has to do is wade through her family and her ex-fiancé.

Oh yeah, and make up for a decade of unresolved hurt.

But Connor has a secret weapon.


Getting Margo to fall in love with his Labrador is easy. Getting her to fall in love – or at least fall out of dislike – with him is going to be a lot harder.

Luck Mockup.png
Luck of the Draw
Luck of the Draw (Hickory Hollow #4)

Tiger attack. Zombie apocalypse. Root canal with gum scraping.

​As far as Sarah Winchester is concerned, all of those are better options than getting roped into the Hickory Hollow Ladies’ Society’s annual Love Drawing. No way she's participating in that hot mess. When the Society’s meddling president drops Sarah’s name into the drawing box anyway, Sarah can’t imagine anything worse. Until she “coincidentally” gets partnered with Rowan, who still carries a grudge from when she backed over his mailbox. It was an accident, okay??

​Rowan Graham has lost everyone he’s ever cared about, except his great-aunt Millie. He’d do anything for her, even if it means gritting his teeth and suffering through her club's ridiculous Valentine's Day Ball and Love Drawing. Maybe it won't be so bad. Until he realizes the last woman standing is the one he least wants to be partnered with. Yeah, her. This isn't going to be bad, it's going to be awful. It was a Brand. New. Mailbox, okay??


Sarah and Rowan agree on one thing – those sweet little old ladies totally rigged the drawing. Even though the Ladies’ Society swears it was the luck of the draw.

Cat Mockup.png
Cat Burglar (Hickory Hollow #5)

Avery Hannigan moved home and saved her family's business. Her reward? A slap in the face when it's handed to her brother. Oh yeah, the patriarchy is real. The Worst Day Ever gets worse when a thief breaks into her apartment and steals her unmentionables. Not just any ordinary thief. A cat. Oh, no, this furry criminal will not get away with her favorite bra.

Alex Myers can't believe his cat is being accused of burgling the neighbor’s apartment, but it's hard to deny the hot pink evidence. Could this get any more awkward? Oh, yes, it could. His mother walks in and assumes they’re dating. Worse, she impulsively invites Avery to their family's annual beach vacation. Thanks, Mom.

Somewhere between cat burglary, career talk, and discovering a mutual—and fanatical—love of baseball, Alex realizes the cat did him a favor by stealing Avery’s bra. Now Alex wants to steal her heart. Things quickly escalate from the awkward meetup to an all-out wild chase, with the cat leading the way.

Can Alex and Avery get past the drama to become more than neighbors, or should their budding relationship be tossed out like yesterday's litter?

A hammer and nails will fix the broken fence, but do they have the right tools to fix their marriage?

Bucket List Mockup.png
The Bucket List (Stand Alone)

17 months, 3 weeks, and 4 days. That's how long I've been crushing on Del, the cute IT guy down the hall. We've bonded over 80s music and Seinfeld references our younger-than-GenX coworkers don't quite appreciate. I'm pretty sure if I asked him out, there's a good chance he'd say yes. Just one problem. I don't take chances. I'm naturally risk-averse.
Okay, fine, let's call it like it is. I'm boring.
When our company hands out the worst employee appreciation gifts ever – leatherbound bucket list journals – I'm faced with just how deep my boringness runs. Trust me, it’s deep.
It's so deep that after a week, the only item on my bucket list is to buy a scratch-off ticket. When this leads to Del and I sharing a modest lottery jackpot, I'm inspired to make a list for real, and inch my way outside of my comfort zone.

But is Del willing to wait around while I figure out how to live a little, or are inside jokes and an office crush all we'll ever have?
