Finding Yesterday

Blue Vine Story #1


When Yesterday's Secrets Bury Tomorrow's Dreams

My veil dangles from my fingers as I hightail it into a wine cellar instead of down the aisle. My caterer, famous bad boy chef, Jack Brady, provides a bottle opener and a listening ear.

Leaving my fiancé at the altar gets me booted from the restaurant he and I ran together, but I land a job as a chef at Jack's steakhouse. So what if I'm a vegetarian?

After a rocky start—involving a piglet who ghosts his own roasting—sparks fly between Jack and me in the kitchen. But the past lingers between us like the smoke from a Southern barbeque. Jack left Blue Vine eighteen years ago after tragedy struck both our families. Does it haunt him like it does me?

The buried secrets of that day could make our dreams go up in flames.

*Finding Yesterday is a heartfelt interconnected stand-alone romcom mystery with adult language and steamy, open-door chemistry that will have you rooting for a happily-ever-after. **Finding Yesterday was originally published as a sweet romcom mystery.

Read this in nearly a single sitting! I was drawn into narrator Claire's voice being told a story by a good friend. Just the right doses of humor, romance, and mystery, and the town of Blue Vine is so charming and well-drawn. Looking forward to the rest of this series! ~ SVP, Amazon Reviewer
