Who knew Mr. Right lived right next door?

Jamie Sutherland, coffee shop owner and serial ruined-relationship survivor, moves into a beautiful loft apartment for a change of scenery.  What she doesn't plan on getting is an eye-full of her handsome next-door neighbor--in nothing but a towel--arguing with his significant other in the hallway.

Joseph Scarbrough's world crashes down on him one cruel morning when his childhood sweetheart rips his heart out of his chest and walks away.  His humiliation isn't complete until he turns around to pick up the pieces and sees a beautiful brunette who just witnessed his Dear John moment.

Caught in an awkward situation, the two backpedal into their separate worlds.  But fate seems determined to make their worlds collide on a regular basis.  Is it destiny just being clumsy when it comes to the two unlikely neighbors or is it the start of something good?


"...a witty, poignant contemporary romance that you will hate to see end.  This sweet, innocent tale takes you along for the ride as life takes two people on the path from friendship to love.  Dealing with the choices in life, friendship, family, love, loss and gain, this fun, flirty story will touch your heart and tickle your funny bone."

5 Blue Ribbons ~ Romance Junkies

"The author has a wonderful capability of evoking all the reader's senses in a such subtle way that encourages reading this perfectly paced story in one sitting.  A light and easy read, this alternately hilarious and heartwarming story is definitely the start of something good!"

~ 4 STARS! ~ Night Owl Reviews

"I've just finished The Start of Something Good.  I sure the heck hope that Book 2 is out soon because I don't know that I can wait!!  That was one of the best sweet stories that I've had the privilege of reading in a long time.  It was really easy to develop an emotional connection with the characters, as well.  I love the premise and I can't wait to see how Jaime and Joseph's relationship progresses."

The road less traveled never had so many bumps.

Jamie Sutherland never expects to connect with her sexy-as-sin neighbor, Joseph Scarbrough, especially after all the failed relationships she's suffered.  Not only does she find out he's not quite "the player" she believed him to be, but that his heart bears scars much deeper than her own.  Ready to take a chance on this unlikely match, she eagerly await their upcoming date and hopes that Joseph is the very companion she's been waiting for all her life.

Time and time again, the comical sporadic encounters resume in their loft apartment complex and Joseph eventually reveals that he is the building superintendent in a very unforgettable, Lucky-in-the-Diet-Coke-commercial fashion.

While he's proficient in fixing Jamie's clogged sink, he's not all that great at leaving his past behind.  When Caroline, his yuppy ex-girlfriend, makes another surprise visit, Jamie's road to something better gets a little rocky.

Will Joseph choose the familiar woman with whom he had a history, or the loyal friend who's given him a future?

  4. The best date I remember was my "official" first date with my husband. We went out to eat and then met up with friends. I was nervous (who isn't on a first date) but we got a long that I knew he was special. The night we were suppose to go on our 3rd date my dad ended up in the hospital very ill. This wonderful man showed up and stayed with my Mom and I through the night at the hospital with my Dad. He never left my side through the whole thing. I knew then he was "the one". We've been together ever since. My Dad got better after that but we have since lost him. My husband was by my side through that as well. We've been through a lot together but we're still in love and stronger than ever :)

    1. Wow, what a fantastic guy...and you are perfect for him as well, I am sure. Thanks for sharing this heartwarming story, Crystal!
