Hooked On You has a new look.
 
Yay!
 
It debuted in June 2021 with a cover similar to the other books in the Mistywood Lane series, but the plan had been to switch it up after a few months.The time has come. 
 
 
 
How cute is this one?
 
I LOVE IT! 
 
 
Preston!
 
Zoe!
 
Cupcake and Twinkle!
 
 Much thanks to the awesome Leni Kauffman. Straight out of the gate, she nailed my vision.
 
 I consider Hooked On You a milestone novel. I thought it deserved  a special cover. ; D 
 
Busy working on the fifth book in the Mistywood Lane series. It's slow going, but I'm having fun with it.
 
I'm reposting a link to Hooked On You's first official review/rating and the book description.
 
 
But first, Hooked On You at-a-glance:
 
Childhood Besties to Adult Lovers
Soul Mates
Slow Burn to Five-Alarm Fire
Sexy Crochet (Not an oxymoron)
Yarn Porn
Cock-blocking Cats/   Cupcake and Twinkle!

Mistywood Lane neighbors Preston Holmes and Zoe Rollins have been besties since the epitome of friendship meant sharing your Pokéman bubblegum cards. 

 

Now Zoe, crochet designer/owner of Hot Off the Hook/yoga instructor, is engaged to school teacher/up-and-coming assemblage artist Dante Gregory. 

 
Bucking the norm has been her style, so of course, she sidesteps a traditional wedding party.  Dante will have his best man while Zoe taps Preston as her all-purpose “best dude.”
 
 
Preston plans to suck it up and rise to the challenge. However, there’s a hitch. Her “brother from another mother” has caught feelings complicating the plan. He’s torn between his growing physical attraction to Zoe and the need to do what’s right — leaving his bestie to a man who promises to deliver her happily ever after.
 
 
Playa-Playa Preston is unwilling to torpedo a decades-long friendship to scratch a pesky itch. 
 
 
 So he’s made a tough decision and aims to follow through, giving his opinions on cupcakes, flower arrangements, do-it-yourself invitations, and dollar store wedding gowns.
 
 And where there’s smoke, there’s “Hellfire.”
 
 
Preston’s determined to crush his tasks, but is he the best dude in more ways than one?
 
Valentine's Day is coming up. Fellow "hookers," if you're interested in making a version of the crochet heart featured on the new cover, I used a free pattern and YouTube tutorial titled Crochet Heart Coaster/Pot Holder by Turtle Trunk. For newbs, it's quick and extremely beginner friendly.
