Welcome to Chicago!

The Chicago Series was the first series I ever wrote, and it wasn’t planned as a series.

I wrote about Alyssa and Hannah and thought Fresh Start would be the last we’d see them, but when I started writing The Best Lines about Ember and Eva, I decided to bring them along. That was supposed to be it, but Charlie and Hailey were Ember’s best friends, and I was a sucker for a good friends-to-lovers story, so I gave them one in Just Tell Her. We met Summer and Lena in that book, and next thing I knew, I wanted to write all about them falling in love in Love Walked into The Lantern. Welcome to Chicago!

The book is an Introduction to Chicago Series.

 

Alyssa Masters had been accused of a horrible crime she didn’t commit and was now the most hated woman in America. She’d lost people she’d loved, her credibility, and a part of her life. To get it back on track, she returns home to live with her mother and has all but given up on any hope at a normal life.

 

Hannah Granger had been off exploring the world and finding herself, only to return home to lose her mother and a lot of what she’d found out about herself while away.

 

When the two women meet, they discover they can help find what they’d lost and uncover more of what they could have in their lives as they attempt to navigate a complicated situation and deal with the baggage they both bring with them.
