ChocLit-logo-WebI’m so proud to see one of my novels sporting the Choc Lit logo and the story that was initially released as Sweet Occasions, has now grown! After being shortlisted in the Festival of Romance awards in 2014, and with an additional 11,000 words, the story goes on beyond the original ending.

A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love: With cupcakes, coffee & karma is all about change. About what it feels like when the dream begins to fall apart. A feel-good romance with heart.

Life isn’t all love and cupcakes …
Katie has had her fair share of bad luck, but when she finally realises her dream of opening a bakery it seems things can only get better.
The reality of running a business hits Katie hard and whilst her partner, Steve, is there for her, she can’t help but feel that the situation is driving them further apart. Could Katie be set to lose her relationship and her dream job?
Then, one winter’s day, a man walks into her shop – and, in the space of that moment, the course of Katie’s life is changed.
But nobody finds happiness in the blink of an eye. Sometimes it takes two Christmases, three birthdays and a whole lot of cake to get there

Meet Katie, the owner of Sweet Occasions bakery. Her partner Steve is a business adviser and then there’s Adam … a guy whose life is in a mess as he struggles to be the perfect single dad. Each has a dream, but what if the dream has to change? How easy is it to cope and adapt when there’s always a reason to act with your head and not your heart?
