"Bellefleur has a droll, distinct voice, and her one-liners zing off the page, striking both the heart and funny bone... There's a sparkling quality here, one that mirrors the starry title. Bellefleur writes as if she's captured fairy lights in a mason jar, twinkly and lovely within something solid yet fragile." - Entertainment Weekly

Following Written in the Stars and Hang the Moon, Lambda Literary Award winner and national bestselling author Alexandria Bellefleur pens another steamy queer rom-com about former best friends who might be each other's second chance at love...

Margot Cooper doesn't do relationships. She tried and it blew up in her face, so she'll stick with casual hookups, thank you very much. But now her entire crew has found "the one" and she's beginning to feel like a fifth wheel. And then fate (the heartless bitch) intervenes. While touring a wedding venue with her engaged friends, Margot comes face-to-face with Olivia Grant--her childhood friend, her first love, her first... well, everything. It's been ten years, but the moment they lock eyes, Margot's cold, dead heart thumps in her chest.

Olivia must be hallucinating. In the decade since she last saw Margot, her life hasn't gone exactly as planned. At almost thirty, she's been married... and divorced. However, a wedding planner job in Seattle means a fresh start and a chance to follow her dreams. Never in a million years did she expect her important new client's Best Woman would be the one that got away.

When a series of unfortunate events leaves Olivia without a place to stay, Margot offers up her spare room because she's a Very Good Person. Obviously. It has nothing to do with the fact that Olivia is as beautiful as ever and the sparks between them still make Margot tingle. As they spend time in close quarters, Margot starts to question her no-strings stance. Olivia is everything she's ever wanted, but Margot let her in once and it ended in disaster. Will history repeat itself or should she count her lucky stars that she gets a second chance with her first love

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There are more than four-million people living in Seattle. So of course, the best woman in the wedding, one person who could make or break assistant event coordinator Olivia Grant's career, would have to be Margot Cooper. It has been more than a decade since Olivia last saw Margot, but the romantic spark she felt for Margot when they were high-school seniors still burns hot. However, Olivia's career rests on her getting this wedding off without a hitch, so keeping things strictly professional between herself and Margot is the plan. Until Olivia needs a place to stay, and Margot offers up the newly vacated spare room in her apartment. Bellefleur (Written in the Stars, 2020) continues on her dazzling trajectory with another completely charming, achingly romantic love story. This tale not only delivers an abundance of wit-infused writing and some scorchingly hot love scenes, it also gracefully illuminates the importance in life of family and the friends we hold most dear."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Lambda Award winner Bellefleur's heartwarming third Written in the Stars romance (after Hang the Moon) sees childhood friends forced to confront their complicated past while planning a wedding. Despite Margot Cooper's coupled friends' best efforts, she remains happily single. That is until Olivia Grant, the childhood best friend turned lover who broke Margot's heart after a brief affair, walks back into her life. Recently divorced Olivia is focused on her job as an event planner, and pulling off the high-profile wedding where Margot is the best woman could land her a promotion. Determined to stay professional, the women agree it's best to ignore their history. But when a plumbing malfunction forces Olivia out of her apartment and Margot offers a place to crash, they quickly give in to temptation. Though feelings reignite for them both, neither will admit it, leading to a friends-with-benefits setup that satisfies nobody. Meanwhile, people pleaser Olivia struggles to balance caring for others with caring for herself. Margot does her best to help, but before their relationship can turn into something more they'll have to address what happened in their past. Bellefleur's lively characters charm from start to finish. This is a perfect pick for readers looking for a light-hearted romance centered on emotional growth. Agent: Sarah Younger, Nancy Yost Literary. (Feb.)"
