EXCERPT: “Willow” by Grace Parks

“Willow” by Grace Parks

Can a socialite and a technophobe fall in love?

A bubbly personality and a great job in social media didn’t mean that Willow Lawson had it all. Her love life was distant memory and her social life only work related. The maddening demands of life seemed to get in the way of finding time for herself or her friends. 

She starts the Pepper Lane Club as a chance to step away from her busy schedule once a month to reconnect with her friends. 

Thomas Greer, the proprietor of the Pepper Lane Café, annoys her. He’s her complete opposite; unsociable, serious, old-fashioned and dead set against social media. 

Always game for a challenge, Willow decides to take him on as a client. She’s going to prove to Thomas that he needs her help. She knew she would be successful, she just didn’t know she would lose her heart along the way.

Can Willow fall in love with a man that doesn’t respect her profession? Will Thomas let go of his preconceptions long enough to get to know the real Willow? Enjoy this sweet romance as Willow finds love and friendship in the first book in the Pepper Lane Series. 

Six women. Six stories. Six chances of love. One café.
The Pepper Lane Series follows the lives of six women as they share life, love and heartache once a month at the Pepper Lane Club. They might be an unlikely group of friends, but it takes all types to form a tribe.

Six women. Six stories. Six chances of love. One café.


“Ah, let me guess. You placed an order for me without asking what I want,” I said.

“I also paid for it.”

“Good. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

He shook his head. “Yeah? Are you one of those women?”

“Do you have any idea how to live in the real world?” I said. I wasn’t angry at but amazed that he said the things he said. I would put money down that he was single and that he’d been that way for a while. “No, I’m not one of those women, whatever that’s supposed to mean. I always pay my way. I don’t, however, feel the need to beg a man who has to constantly prove himself to me. Actually, telling me you paid for my drink? Such charm.”

Thomas laughed. “Are you always this easy to tease?”

“Are you always this annoying?”
