The Early Bird Cafe
For years, Jim and Eve have shared breakfast every morning at The Early Bird Cafe. Their long standing friendship, however, is thrown into chaos when Jim begins writing his second novel. Their friendship strained, a grievous string of events coupled with Jim's manipulative new lover takes his focus away from the novel and from his true muse.
Trying to step back from the drama proves useless when Jim's father passes away. When Jim asks for help, he puts Eve between him and Kate. Just as they come to a point where it seems their friendship might be able to bloom into love, Kate drops a bombshell that could ruin everything.
Put to the ultimate test, will Eve step back to let Jim and Kate work things out? Or will she fight for the kiss she's been waiting for all her life? What would you do...if it were your best friend?

When she is not writing, Carrie enjoys macrophotography of the local insects in her area, spending time with her family and updating an Erie fanpage, Erie Shopping, on Facebook.
