A workplace romance leads to a sweet second chance...

Dean Foster needs Alice Jaye. Hiring her to manage all things administration and customer service at Foster's Garage is giving him back something he's been lacking for years: time. Time to focus on his business, time to be with his family. Time, even, to learn how to be something more than the town's favourite widower.

Alice Jaye needs Dean Foster. As a financially struggling single mother, Alice relies on the second income from Foster's Garage to help make ends meet. But by taking a second job, Alice is losing the very thing she needs most: time. Time with her son. Time to rest. Time to be more than a money–chasing zombie who hasn't had a grown–up dinner conversation in years.

Both Dean and Alice feel like they've left romance behind, but as they start spending their days together and as their kids start to bond, it becomes clear that what begins in winter could grow into a very sweet spring.

Cora is over being alone. She has no family, and all her friends are couples. Fed up with feeling sorry for herself, Cora hatches a plan to find a good, loving man she can call her own. Her deadline is Christmas – she doesn't want to spend another holiday by herself.

Just as she decides her strategy, she meets Matt, her downstairs neighbour. They become unlikely friends, with Matt an amused bystander as Cora tries various methods in search of a man.

Then something strange happens. Matt, who spends his life avoiding commitment, begins to feel jealous of the men Cora is dating and his resolve to never fall in love begins to crumble. Cora finds herself increasingly attracted to Matt. But is he good husband material? She thinks not.

A lighthearted, contemporary romance about a young woman who goes looking for love, only to find it right under her nose.

'Quite simply, I LOVED this book...Ackers writes with a light, friendly, bantering kind of tone, setting an atmosphere that is so welcoming, warm and, why not: cuddly.' - Giraffe Days

'I really enjoyed this delightful romance, with Cora's self imposed Christmas Day deadline The Man Plan is a lovely seasonal read. [...] I enjoyed the light hearted humour, especially the witty banter between Cora and Matt. The story flows well and the dialogue rings true.' - Book'd Out

'...a tale that every women who reads this book will agree with and most will even think – OMG I've done that or at least tried it , some might even say OMG I did that and it worked.' - The Phantom Paragrapher

'The Man Plan is a sweet romance story, with a touch of Holiday Spirit. This is a book about finding love in unexpected places, and I enjoyed the story.' - Book Savvy Babes

'THE MAN PLAN is by turns hilariously funny and filled with heartfelt emotions. I love friends-to-lovers stories, and this is one of the best that I've read.' - Life is a Kaleidoscope
