About the author

Jean Oram used to write lists of things to do for her friends when they couldn’t decide what to do together. When her first child was less than a year old she took up her old habit again and began a list of free play ideas in case her daughter ever came to her with those dreaded words on her lips, “I’m bored.” Within days she had hundreds of ideas. And eventually, this book was born. Her daughter is now a preteen and many of the activities in this book have been tested (or invented) in the Oram household.

Jean is a New York Times bestselling romance author, mother of two, instigator of play, and a fun wife. She loves to spend time in the great outdoors getting dirty and playing. (She loves it when her kids join in.) She’s worked as a library children’s programmer, ski instructor, as well as beekeeper. She lives in Canada with her family and big shaggy dog.

Book 3
Falling in love wasn't part of the plan.

Luke and Emma need each other, but not for a clandestine rendezvous like they have in the past. No, Emma needs an experienced business partner to help launch her new product line, and—thanks to a recent personal scandal—Luke is the only one who will take her calls. All she has to do is convince this CEO to abandon his post and move to the small mountain town of Blueberry Springs.

Luke knows Emma’s plan is perfect—as long as she agrees to marry him. Not only will their professional partnership earn his company some much-needed positive publicity, but most importantly, their marriage will help him fulfill his grandparents’ last wishes so he can protect their legacy from being squandered by the next in line.

They've promised their past mistakes won't impact their secret wedding plan.

They’ve promised not to kiss…not to fall in love.

The problem is, both Luke and Emma harbor enough secrets to destroy even the best laid wedding plans. Will these two lose everything when the truth rises to the surface? Or will they overcome their past so they can claim their future?

Fall in love with the latest irresistible read from NY Times bestseller Jean Oram and the small town of Blueberry Springs. Purchase your copy of The Wedding Plan today and escape into the series that keeps romance readers up all night.

Book 1
A brand new, irresistible series about finding love in unexpected places by New York Times bestselling romance author Jean Oram. Come fall in love...

Sometimes exes come in handy.

Devon Mattson’s week couldn’t get much worse. Not only is he fake engaged to the sexy woman who broke his heart (then stomped on it for good measure) a decade ago, but his goal of saving his hometown of Blueberry Springs has become dependent on the two of them playing nicely.

Olivia Carrington isn’t happy to have her ex back in her life. She’s spent ten long years regretting how they ended things back in college and she’s worked hard to move on. She should be focusing on saving her family’s company, not on the handsome, helpful, fun-loving Devon who has just offered her a lifeline she can’t resist…

Tied together by mutual need, will they ruin each other’s chance of success or will a fake engagement help them overcome their painful past and lead them back to love once again?

This is the first book in the Veils and Vows series and it can be read out of series order and as a standalone. The couple, Olivia and Devon, also have a prequel novella, The Promise, which can be read before or after this book for readers who want more about Olivia and Devon’s past.

Book 2
When falling in love isn’t part of the contract.

Techie Ethan Mattson may have married chef Lily Harper but he didn’t vow to love her. His only commitment was to hand her half of his business assets and a year later file for divorce while saving a tidy sum on taxes.
Little does Ethan know that the pretty woman from his past needs so much more than just a business. She needs protection and love, the two things he feels too broken to offer.

Chef Lily Harper grew up tagging along after Ethan who saved her from bullies, mud puddles and being an outsider. When Lily flees a nasty ex who won’t take a hint, she comes running home to Blueberry Springs, striking a deal with her childhood protector, Ethan. If he marries her, she’ll take his restaurant off his hands, giving him more time to spend on his dream tech business. Not only that, but she’ll finally earn her way into owning a thriving restaurant. It seems like an ideal agreement…until she begins to fall in love.

Will Lily be able to show Ethan how to love again or will their hidden histories ruin their recipe for love? Find out in this irresistible new book from New York Times bestselling author Jean Oram.
