The Sweetest Connection
Two best friends have one week to return a lost love letter found in a candy store—and to work up the courage to confess to the deep feelings between them—in this romance novella from the acclaimed author of How To Fail at Flirting.
Teagan’s job in an airport candy store pays the bills but she dreams of traveling the world. With one week until she boards a plane for an international adventure, she finds an abandoned love letter in the store and talks her BFF into helping her figure out who it belongs to.
Silas solves problems for a living as an airline customer service representative. One problem he can’t solve is how to reveal a big secret to his best friend that would risk changing their entire relationship. When she proposes they work together to get the love letter back to its owner, he jumps at the chance.
Teagan and Silas stumble on romantic clues, old stories, and more than a few dead ends along the way while trying to play Cupid, all of which bring them closer together. With only a few days before Teagan’s transatlantic move, the two of them must decide if the sweet temptation of falling for their best friend is worth the potential heartbreak or if either can stand to keep their feelings wrapped up.
Williams follows The Missed Connection with a delightful friends-to-lovers novella. Writer and hopeless romantic Teagan, a college dropout who now works at an airport sweet shop, has one week before she heads back to school to finish her degree with a semester abroad in Paris. Before she leaves, her best friend, Silas, who works in airline customer service, hopes to strike up enough courage to confess his feelings, though he worries about ruining their relationship. When the pair discover a note left behind on the candy shop floor clearly written by another airport employee and weighing the pros and cons of confessing love to a coworker, they set out on a mission to return the note to its owner, following romantic clues along the way. This adventure may be just the thing to show the pair the benefits of falling in love with one's best friend. Williams wastes no time, with simple, snappy plotting that flashes forward between past and present to show what's at stake for both Teagan and Silas. Punchy dialogue, unforgettable characters, and some light, good-natured intrigue make this story one to devour like a box of duty-free truffles. Agent: Sharon Pelletier, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret.
