Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link - Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow with Kindle Unlimited

Length: 16,000 words approx.


Donnie Watson's baking disasters are legendary, but this Easter, his mismatched chocolate eggs bring accidental but astonishing results to four downhearted gay men. The chocolate sweets spill onto the pavement of a small parade of local shops—and go on a matchmaking tour like no other! From a bankrupt and betrayed baker, to a homeless but hopeful man, to a conceited bar owner in need of a reality check, and finally to the hapless but caring Donnie himself. 
After all, Love means you can have chocolate too!


In Chaos Theory, there’s something called “The Butterfly Effect”. Plainly stated, it says that the flap of a butterflies wings half a world away can have a dramatic effect on weather patterns here in the states.  There’s something similar happening in this book, only it’s not a butterfly that causes the change, but rather a chocolate accident. 

While on the surface, this may seem like odd premise for a book, particularly a short one.  But it’s really not.  It’s a study in how one seemingly innocuous event can change the lives of eight people.

The cast of characters is as varied as the types of candy made with chocolate.  From seemingly inept Donnie, the baker whose chocolates cause the changes, to Jez the homeless man, to grumpy Henry.  Each one has their own backstory, surprisingly told to great affect within the space of one chapter.  In fact, each character’s story is told in a single chapter, but there’s never a sense of being short changed by the brief length of each tale.

Each one feels like it’s the beginning of a beautiful love story that could easily be followed up in future stories.

And if they do, I’ll gladly read them
