Heart Shape Confetti
By Laura Wilkinson

Spice level:🍬 (Sweet)

In a crazy Manhattan blackout, two lonely strangers connect – but can a passion forged in darkness, survive the cold light of day?

Steph, an advice columnist, is stuck in a stagnant life, while lonely architect Harry dreams of rediscovering his passion. Despite a chance encounter in New York sparking a magical connection between them, fear and past wounds keep them apart. But when Steph's daughter, Lola, enters the picture, their paths intertwine in unexpected ways. As Steph fights to save her community's beloved park and confronts her past, she must choose between safety and taking a leap of faith.


That Night in New York is a heart-warming tale of love, family, and the courage to embrace new beginnings.
