PLAN B by Erin Stevenson
SERIES: St. Clair Family #1
GENRE: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
PUBLISHER: Happy Jack Publishing
RELEASE DATE: August 8, 2018
Landon St. Clair was left at the altar on New Year’s Day at St. Louis’ social event of the season. He wants nothing more than to lick his wounds in solitude and figure out a Plan B and intends to keep his reservation at the St. Jardin Honeymoon Resort, even without a bride. With the owners’ reluctant approval, Landon takes on an assumed identity and cuts all ties to home for the week.
Kelsea Anderson is a jilted bride with nothing left but a battered heart and a plane ticket to the Caribbean. The only part of her doomed wedding that she had any say in was the honeymoon. She paid for it, and there’s no reason she can’t come to the romantic resort alone, so Kelsea jumps on a plane the day after New Year’s to escape the icy St. Louis winter and come up with a Plan B for the rest of her life.
Lottery winners Rose and Ike Goldman, married for 53 years, never looked back when they left Brooklyn, NY for the Caribbean where they bought a honeymoon resort three years ago. Rose was something of a matchmaker in Brooklyn, and once she meets Kelsea and “Brandon,” she knows she has her work cut out for her. She has only a week to convince them that sometimes, Plan B is the best plan of all.
Take a quick getaway to St. Jardin! Plan B is your ticket to a tropical paradise filled with beautiful gardens, merriment, and romance.
A Lucky License Plate
by Erin Stevenson, author of Plan B
In November 2017, I was driving to the library to pick up a book I had ordered (when I’m not writing, I’m reading) and a car passed me on the highway. I looked over and the personalized license plate said NO PLAN B. Suddenly, a story popped into my mind about a jilted bride. She’s left at the altar and has to come up with a Plan B for the rest of her life. When I got to the library, I had the story arc. It just came pouring out. I put my current work in progress on the shelf and wrote Plan B in about a month.
My mother always told me to have a Plan B. When my marriage fell apart, I pulled up my bootstraps and took that advice. I passed that important life lesson on to my daughter. When she called me just before her college graduation and shared that an anticipated job had fallen through, the first words out of my mouth were, “what’s your Plan B?” I was thrilled when her response was, “already on it, Mom.” By the next day, she had steps in place.
In 2022, a Hallmark movie came out with this synopsis: “When two weddings are ruined by both the bride and groom getting left at the altar, they still decide to take their honeymoons, not knowing they are heading to the same resort in Hawaii.” My reaction was, “Wish I’d thought of that. OH wait! I did!”
Unfortunately, Hallmark didn’t buy this script from me. I think mine is better, though! For one thing, it’s set on the fictional tropical island of St. Jardin at a honeymoon resort run by a spunky, matchmaking senior couple who have become reader favorites (a prequel with their love story is on my to-write list). Second, the story doesn’t end at the resort. I won’t go into it because of spoilers, but as one reviewer said, “you can predict the ending, but the path there charms. The ups and downs and mishaps will keep you turning the pages.”
