Becca Zimmerman wakes up deliciously satisfied next to Detective Sean McGee. She’s an intrepid interior designer and businesswoman. She knows what she needs. It isn’t Sean. 1- He isn’t Jewish, and 2- He’s a cop. As maid of honor, watching her best friend Mandy get married fills her with a pang of loneliness. It’s just enough to tip her into the waiting arms of the sexy best man Sean McGee. Hooking up with him at the wedding is too much fun to consider a mistake but it can’t happen again. Acting as surrogate “besties” until the newlyweds return from their honeymoon seems harmless enough. Is it?
Sean McGee has both faith and patience. From the moment he laid eyes on Becca, he knew he’d need both. When Becca offers herself up as a “stand in” BFF, Sean sees his opening and offers to do the same for her. But breaking through her steadfast reservations is proving to be a greater challenge than he thought. Given half a chance he’ll show Becca, that for her, he is the Best Man Indeed.
Will religion and culture keep love at bay, or will faith bring love home?

I was raised outside of Ottawa, ON Canada and was lucky enough to have my horse in my backyard. The first thing I ever remember wanting to do was tell stories, but I was told that there was no money in it, so I moved on — to the incredibly lucrative career of elementary education. After taking a break from the work force while raising my boys, I returned (somehow) to work in securitized real estate: educating investors and keeping track of a lot of details.
I’ve lived in Massachusetts; Northern California; British Columbia, Canada; Southern California; and now Nevada. I love it here in Nevada and would really rather not move again for a long time. 2020 was an interesting year but what I’m most grateful for is that it allowed me to dive back into my passion for writing.
I’m blessed to be married to the love of my life and with our dog O’Malley we endeavor to live our best lives. I love to cook; you’ll see pictures of food all over my Instagram. I love dogs, horses, hiking, and writing. Nothing is more fun than when my characters misbehave requiring me to re-plot the rest of the book.
