Happily-ever-after only happens once in a lifetime, right? But what if Prince Charming runs for the hills at the first sign of trouble and leaves you to pick up the pieces?

Thinking her marriage was over, Tessa was more than a little shocked to fall into the arms of her husband (literally) at a party she’d planned through her new company, Decadent Events. When he asks her out for coffee, she assumes it’s to sign the divorce papers he’d seen.

What’s a girl to do when her heart still goes pitter-patter for a man who ran out on her six months after they made their forever vows but comes back asking for another chance?

About the Author

Growing up as a small town Canadian girl, there wasn't much to do but ride your bike, hang out with friends on the beach and daydream. I always wanted to write but never dreamed it was something I could do as a career. I love to travel and fell in love with the sheep covered hillside, old castles and romantic history of Scotland and England. I dream about waking up in Tuscany and touring small town shops in the south of France with my husband, of placing my toes in the ocean and experiencing history first hand. As a mother with three daughters, I'm learning that teaching them to pursue their dreams is a lasting legacy. I love to wake up to the Rocky Mountains, will forever enjoy the taste of coffee and chocolate and can't imagine the day when a story doesn't unfold in my heart. Living a life with passion and pursuing dreams is a life well lived.

Her latests release - FINDING EMMA is a heart-wrenching story of when devotion borders on obsession, a mother must choose between her family and finding her missing daughter.

This short book is like getting a piece of chocolate out of a fancy box & seeing you are allergic to the center. It looked way better, untouched, in the box.

In Sweet Memories, Book One of the Decadent Events, is the tale of what miscommunication in a marriage can do. Tess is dealing with running her business and with her husband, Jude running away from their marriage without giving a reason why he left when at a anniversary party for his parents, he decided to show back up after three months away. When Jude shows back up, he is hit with shocking news from his parents and a wife that doesn't know if she can trust him again. When the party ends and Tess is finally able to go home, Jude is waiting for her on the porch wanting to give his side of the story. As Jude tells her where he has been and discovering that Tess has divorce papers in her purse, he realizes that there is only one thing to do. When Jude takes Tess out on a coffee date, everything comes out why he left and if he still has a chance to be with Tess. Even though this was a very short read, I really loved it!! It does make you think, what would you do if your husband just up and left without warning and would you take him back? You have to hand it to Steena for writing these fantastic short stories that have you wanting more to the story! Thank You to Steena Holmes for writing this great start to this little series!! This book came from my own personal Library.

Sweet Memories is a genuinely sweet love story, with the taste of salted chocolate blending emotions perfectly. Family angst and tragedy form the backdrop to a wonderful anniversary party, with the daughter-in-law eagerly making things perfect for others while everything’s torn apart for herself. Tess’s dream marriage is broken, her husband gone and even his parents don’t know why. Torn between wanting him back and giving up on him, Tess is stuck. She has dreams, but can she follow them now, alone? And she has friends, but no-one will ever take Jude’s place. Jude, meanwhile, is coming home to repair his world, only to find even more of it breaking up. Seeing both Jude’s and Tess’s point of view, readers are invited to watch their mis-communication, so achingly real, and hope for improvement. Since Sweet Memories is sweet, of course, the improvement will come. But first there are lovely scenes of love rekindled and hope restored. Communication’s the key, between spouses, and between parents and children too. And salted tears might become joy with chocolate. Disclosure: I enjoy Steena Holmes’ writing so I was pleased to find this free.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings The first in what will hopefully be a long series.  I am combining the first two that are currently out in this one post.  The first book is centered around an event planner whose husband left suddenly and hasn't called in months.  She is planning a party for her in laws when he shows up back in town.  In a short novella, she must decide whether to forgive and forget or just forgive or just forget.   A sweet novella that centered on a professional that I love to read about.  Event planning is a secret passion of mine, so I love to read books where people make a living out of it!  The author didn't waste any pages in the beginning setting up the plot and getting it moving, I am glad with novella length she didn't fluff up the front.

Sweet Memories by Steena Holmes is a sweet and short romance that opens her new series Decadent Events. With the “big misunderstanding” happening in the past and a not so bright future staring them in the face, this is a story about redemption and forgiveness. It is also a story about jealousy and insecurity and how easily they can damage a relationship. When Jude walks away from his new marriage to his one and only, Tessa leans heavily on her best friends, and one of them is in love with her. But Jude is done running, and he wants his happily ever after back. Now he has to overcome Tessa’s fears, his parents’ devastating news, and fix his friendship with his best friend. This is clearly a set up novella for the series, but it is also a lovely story in its own right. Tessa is no doormat and letting Jude back into her life, whether she loves him or not, is not an easy thing to do. Jude, for his part, needs to learn that “I’m sorry.” doesn’t cure-all ills. We will definitely be seeing more of them in the next book. This is definitely a novella that works, with enough backstory to keep it from being too rushed and enough to look forward to keep it from ending too abruptly. No question, this is one to read.
