Welcome to San Francisco!
The San Francisco Series came along when I decided that I wanted Emma, who was featured in both Just Tell Her and Love Walked into The Lantern, to have her own story. She moved to San Francisco and met Keira, who has a friend group of her own. Having lived in San Francisco myself, I looked forward to creating their stories and showing up parts of the city as I did. In Macon’s Heart, we got to watch Macon fall in love with her supposed best friend, Joanna. And lastly, in This Above All, Hillary finally met the woman she’d been staring at from across a café and fell in love with Amara, who was struggling with finding herself and coming out.

This is book #1 in the San Francisco Series.
Emma Colton left her life behind when she moved from Chicago to San Francisco. She has a new job at the Health Department, a tiny apartment, and has dealt with being unlucky in love for most of her adult life. She’s hoping a new city and a fresh outlook will help her find the woman she’s been waiting for.
Keira Worthy has had a rough few years. She lost her best friend and business partner almost immediately after starting their dream event planning company. She’s barely hanging on financially and takes a job for the Health Department in hopes of landing more customers if it goes well. When she meets her liaison, Emma, under not the best circumstances – sparks fly. And not the good kind of sparks.
When they bump into one another at a lesbian singles night, they have to decide if they want to take the chance on something that could possibly be forever.
