Book 1 of the 3 book series A Long Road to Love, named Worst Week Ever.
Trent Lancaster spends one month without his Executive Assistant (or as his drivers refers to Carrie: ‘Trent’s brain, left hand, and right hand’. He’s had a miserable month without her at his side and to ensure it never happens again, he intends to marry this brilliant beauty. Only given all the times he’s threatened to fire her, he’s not sure she even likes him. However, the future of his company and his happiness depend upon him succeeding, so Trent begins a slow one week seduction, that happens to coincide with Carrie Hanson’s Worst Week Ever when everything that can go wrong does so in hilarious form.
(Hilarious to the reader, Carrie is not having much fun this week.)
Targeted Age Group:
I actually write in every genre imaginable, so I can actually answer this. My Young and New Adult contemporaries usually start out light hearted and fun, then get serious. In Worst Week Ever, I stay funny through the whole thing because it’s actually the first of three book about Carrie’s Long Road to Love. By book three, I’ve gotten serious.

Liza O’Connor lives in Denville, NJ with her dog Jess. They hike in fabulous woods every day, rain or shine, sleet or snow. Having an adventurous nature, she learned to fly small cessnas in NJ, hang-glide in New Zealand, kayak in Pennsylvania, ski in New York, scuba dive with great white sharks in Australia, dig up dinosaur bones in Montana, sky dive in Indiana, and raft a class four river in Tasmania. She’s an avid gardener, amateur photographer, and dabbler in watercolors and graphic arts. Yet through her entire life, her first love has and always will be writing novels. She loves to create interesting characters, set them loose, and scribe what happens.
I was terribly slow to learn life lessons such as:
Just because a guy says he loves you does NOT make him Mr. Right.
Once you realize a guy is NOT Mr. Right, cut him loose.
You cannot significantly charge a person. If you can’t live with whom they are, find someone else.
