Half-way through July and a new series!

It's July and halfway through 2018, and I'm happy to say I'm more than half-way through the re-release schedule of my contemporary romance series set in Harbor Falls, North Carolina!

Since October of 2017, I've been revising and re-releasing all of the titles in my old Matchmaking Chef series. This rebrand and reboot of the series include new books to the series and some major overhauls of some of the existing novellas. All books have a new look and feel and are connected to the new town of Harbor Falls, NC (used to be Legend, TN).

This week The Husband List released. Yay! It is book 9 of the 15 books series (so far) and all is on track to release book 10, The Heartbreaker, in July, book 11, Chase My Heart, in August, followed by Star Crossed, Book 12, in September, No Sweeter Match, Book 13 in October. And finally, Book 14, One More Kiss, in November, and Not This Christmas, Book 15, in December. Whew!

Yes, I will make this schedule! Then in 2019 I'm happy to report new titles in the works for both the Maddie James and Sophie Jacobs pen names. 2019 will be here before we know it!

Here are the details on The Husband List!

The Husband List
A Harbor Falls Romance, Book 9, Sweet Hart Inn

When Suzie Hart’s success as the matchmaking chef hits the national foodie scene, her publicist produces a list of requirements totally unrelated to Suzie’s newfound cooking show success. Interested more in Suzie’s matchmaking talents, Patricia Plum presents, The Husband List. 

Patricia Plum knows she’s attracted to commitment-phobic men. Worse, they are attracted to her. Unlucky on her own in the couples department, she asks her new client for help. If Suzie Hart is as good as everyone claims, Patricia feels confident this hot new chef-turned-matchmaker will deliver the husband of her dreams. Just to move things along, Patricia presents Suzie with a specific list of husband requirements.

Ames Cooper is Patricia’s commitment-phonic ex-boyfriend who screwed up royally in the past (both literally and figuratively) and watched her walk out of his life. He’s a dozen years her junior and doesn’t meet any of the requirements on her husband list because he’s the exact opposite of every point on her list—not to mention the reason she compiled the list to begin with.

When photographer, Ames, steps into the photo shoot for Suzie’s new cookbook and sees Patricia again, he realizes why his heart felt so empty these past three years. He regrets his past indiscretions and wonders how he can make things right with Patricia.

Will Patricia let him get close enough to prove he can be husband material, after all? And can matchmaker, Suzie Hart, really deliver Patricia’s perfect mate to order?
