As an authority on all things chocolate, Hayden Mundy Moore is traveling across the pond to lend her expertise to the owner of a posh London chocolaterie-pâtisserie. From coconut truffles to chocolate flapjacks, Hayden’s mouthwatering creations quickly impress her client. But her knowledge doesn’t end there. The detective constable is taken by surprise when she identifies an exotic murder weapon: a stone metlapil, used to grind cacao beans—and apparently to bludgeon someone to death—in Hayden’s own lodgings, no less… The victim is a sexy celebrity chef who just happens to be the ex-husband of Hayden’s client. Now, amid the terraced town houses and local pubs, a killer is lurking—and the police have an assortment of suspects: a culinary rival, an ambitious agent, a recently-sacked assistant, and unfortunately, Hayden herself. The talented chocolate whisperer will have to find out what sort of nutter clobbered the famous cook—or her career may come to a bitter end… “Chocoholics and food cozy fans rejoice! With prose as smooth and delicious as its theme, this quality debut cozy introduces a smart protagonist with an unusual and tasty profession.” —Library Journal (starred) on Criminal Confections

"Lisa Plumley creates charming characters. Her books are a delight!" —USA Today best-selling author Rachel Gibson Girly Girl... Jayne Murphy is a woman on top. From trendy haircut to perfect pedicure, she's a vision of city-smart style, wrapped around the brains and intuition that made her very first book a bestseller. The truth is, Jayne's relationship manual, Heartbreak 101, was inspired by her all-too-personal experience with gorgeous, capable...outdoorsy...photojournalist Riley Davis, who stole her heart—and promptly skipped town with it. Now, by way of researching her next project, Jayne's organized a workshop for dump-ees. But it becomes apparent that the "retreat" she's planned could be hell on her high heels—and her heart—when the leader for her group's week-long nature jaunt turns out to be none other than a certain... ...Goodbye Guy Riley has no idea he planted the seeks for Heartbreak 101, much less that Jayne's the guru whose devotees he'll be leading through the wilderness. He does know that helping his grandparents run their rustic Arizona lodge is only a temporary respite from the wanderlust that led him away from her, back into a life of nonstop adventure—and loneliness. Jayne's version of "roughing it" reminds Riley all over again how different they are...and how much he's missed her. The challenge now isn't just getting everyone out of the woods in one piece, but making sure that Jayne's next book has a happily-ever-after ending... "...cute premise and likable protagonists... Plumley (Falling For April) has a knack for crafting hip, realistic dialogue and screwball characters." —Publisher's Weekly "Reconsidering Riley is another wonderfully witty, well-written, winsomely romantic story by Lisa Plumley. If you haven't read Plumley's other books, you owe it to yourself to do so!" —The State newspaper "Plumley's clever premise, witty dialogue, and unforgettable cast of quirky characters make for rapid-fire humor from cover to cover. Readers who love the zany comedy of Sue Civil-Brown's Next Stop, Paradise or Sherryl Woods' Ask Anyone will devour this book. If laughter's the best medicine, Reconsidering Riley could cure an epidemic!" —Booklist (starred review) "Reconsidering Riley is bound to be a hit with romance fans! This deliciously wicked romance evoked some laughs, a few sighs, and plenty of grins along the way." —The Romance Reader's Connection "A very romantic, comedy-filled, slick and savvy novel from one of my favorite romance authors! Too good! Want some (more!) fun in your life? Pick up Reconsidering Riley." —The Road to Romance "Comical...with a bit of philosophy thrown in!" —Old Book Barn Gazette "A breezy, enjoyable romp that showcases two very charming main characters as well as a secondary cast that's equally delightful. Ms. Plumley has a real knack for smart, witty dialogue and situations, not to mention a sure hand when it comes to setting up sizzling sexual tension between Jayne and Riley. Reconsidering Riley is definitely a top choice for romance lovers who enjoy lighter contemporary fare." —BookLoons "Four stars! Reconsidering Riley is as fun and effervescent as its bubbly heroine —an entertaining romp peopled with lovable characters. The hijinks of Jayne and the heartbreak groupies will tickle your funny bone, while Riley's rugged charm makes him the perfect hero with which to get lost in the woods!" —Romantic Times "A fun, laugh out loud story. Lisa Plumley has a winner on her hands!" —Romance and Friends "Full of wit and humor that will bring a lot of chuckles and smiles.

"Plumley's humor sparkles in this thoroughly engaging tale about what's real and what isn't." --Booklist (starred review) Nationally bestselling author Lisa Plumley has charmed readers and critics alike with her gift for sparkling screwball romance. Now, she turns reality TV upside down with a totally different take on prime-time love... After her long-running sitcom is cancelled, actress Marley Madison finds herself a typecast has-been at the ripe old age of twenty-seven. Her career needs a jump-start, fast--and an incognito appearance on the hit reality game show Dream Date will prove her acting ability to the world. But before long, she finds herself wanting to prove something entirely different to her fellow contestant, Jake Jarvis. There's something decidedly un-Hollywood about Jake, a sportscaster whose laid-back charm belies something deeper than an intimate understanding of box scores. And the better Marley gets to know him, the harder it is to remember her motivation. Because she's beginning to realize that what makes her career could break both their hearts--if reality and honesty are on different wavelengths... "Engaging, well-developed protagonists and an abundance of appealing secondary characters, especially an adorable four-year-old and the heroine's geeky twin sister, who definitely needs her own story, add to the fun.
