Publisher Description

When a small town girl crosses paths with her Scottish ex, she fakes a relationship to pretend she’s over him. But now they have to work together, and it’s getting harder to lie. Inspired by the song “Exile” by Taylor Swift and Bon Iver.

Sonny McIntyre. For four years Cricket Stone thought he was her soulmate. The way he always put her first. Their all-night conversations and all-morning love sessions. Not to mention Sonny’s sexy lopsided smile, the roll of his Scottish accent, and the fact that his dog loved her best.

But then he took a job in Wisconsin, leaving Cricket in California to reassemble the shattered pieces of her heart.

A year later, Sonny is back, and he’s obviously moved on with the gorgeous woman at his side. Cricket can’t let him know she’s not over him, so she does the only thing she can think of at the moment—fake a relationship with a former fling. It’s the perfect way to save face, and she’s sure she’ll never see Sonny again. But when Cricket discovers she and Sonny will be working together, she’s forced to keep up the lie. Of course, working with Sonny only reminds her of everything she lost when he moved away.

Then there’s the obnoxious macaw, sent by her globe-trotting twin sister Meadow. What's she going to do with this bird?

For the Birds

For the Birds delivers a light-hearted, romantic romp featuring star-crossed lovers Cricket and Sonny. One misunderstanding leads to another and another and the lies keep piling up. Yet with so much chemistry between them they’d have to end up together, wouldn’t they? Perhaps, but sometimes you have to lose love to find yourself. Crissi Langwell sends Cricket on a journey of self-discovery that proves you are never too old to grow up.

For the Birds provides plenty of interesting twists and turns—it kept me reading way past my bedtime. While I loved Cricket and Sonny, I was equally engrossed with a subplot featuring a hyacinth macaw named Avery, and the sudden arrival of Cricket’s bruised and battered twin sister. What dangerous secret is Meadow hiding, and what is the mystery attached to Avery?

The author ties the sisters’ stories together in a suspenseful, satisfying ending and provides a few laugh-out-loud moments along the way. I heartily endorse this book.
