About The Book

Sassy and entertaining Cyd Charisse moves from San Francisco to New York City to start a new life—without her true love—in the “thoroughly satisfying conclusion to the saga” (School Library Journal).

Cyd wants to find a cool job, the city’s best caffeination and most perfect cupcake, and a hot new love. But the reality of her new life hits some unexpected obstacles, including a broken leg that renders her immobile; the joy and aggravation of sharing an apartment with a roommate who’s also an older brother; and a tasty selection of guys—none of whom measure up to Shrimp.

Then, just when Cyd starts to get her new life on track, her old love returns. Shrimp has given up on his plans to live and surf in New Zealand and arrives in NYC with nothing to do other than to be with her. And this time Cyd’s is determined that she and Shrimp will not repeat their old mistakes.

This third book about reformed hellion Cyd Charisse is just as unforgettable as Gingerbread and Shrimp.
