Contemporary chick-lit where nothing ever goes according to plan

Holly Kerr writes chick-lit books with a twist. No broody men, no obsessions with shoes, just fun stories about strong women going after what they want.


The Secret Life of Charlotte Dodd


Charlotte Dodd is a spy.

Only she doesn’t know it

Charlotte Dodd is in love with a man…

That she can’t remember

After taking an experimental drug to replace her memories of saving the world (or at least the country – several times) Charlotte Dodd is given a new life – a quiet, unassuming job, a second chance at love with Luke, and no one trying to kill her.

Two years later and with no recollection of saving the world, she steps in to help a random stranger and is amazed at the ease in which she dispatches her opponents using a rolled-up magazine. But how is that possible? She has Buffy-like fight moves, fires a gun with deadly accuracy and can use the air from car tires to keep breathing underwater.

When she meets Ham – why is he so familiar? The flashes, the déjà vu, the dreams – they’re not really dreams? Blowing up a building in Mexico, being buried alive – those things really happened to her? And what is her brother doing flying a plane? Turns out those two years of quiet with Luke was really an undercover mission to help bring down a secret organization targeting her family.

Charlotte needs to remember her secret life if she wants to save the world again and the only man she’s ever loved.

(Unexpecting was formerly titled Baby! Baby? Baby!? Same story as Unexpecting – different title and cover!)

Casey wants to have a baby.

But has a slight problem – there’s no man in her life.

The morning after yet another breakup, Casey wakes up and decides she’s finished waiting for Mr. Right. The time is NOW to have a baby. She’s only been planning on being a mother since forever and at thirty-five, she feels like time is running out for her. But is she prepared how her life is about to change?

Casey’s not the only one. Her roommate J.B is astonished at Casey’s snap decision to have a baby, especially since it’s his bed Casey wakes up in. Even though her best friends do their best to convince her to wait for Mr. Right, Casey isn’t listening to anyone. She needs a man for one thing, and one thing only. Now, how to pick the man?

With perfect timing only found in a rom-com, Casey’s ex wanders back into her life. She’s convinced it’s fate, even though David’s got a few surprises of his own for Casey.

But remember that night with J.B….?

What Readers are saying…

“I would definitely recommend Unexpected (Baby! Baby? Baby?!) It was delightful, funny and entertaining.”

“The first sentence made me laugh out loud.”

Coming Home

Loving your sisters is easy. Liking them is the hard part.

Brenna Ebans always wanted more than what Hill n’Valley could give her, so it seemed a simple decision to follow her black-sheep sister Dory’s footsteps and leave Hill n’Valley in her rearview, hoping to locate their missing father. Leaving her sisters and her first love Seamus was harder than she thought, she’s made a life for herself in Vancouver, started her career at a prestigious law firm, and has found the man of her dreams. But when she finds her husband Toby in a compromising position at work, she loses both her love and her job, and has nowhere to go but home.

Youngest sister Cat has remained in Hill n’Valley, leaving a string of broken hearts—and ex-husbands—in her wake. She’s happy living in the family home, with the ghost of their dead mother to keep her company during the day, and her latest conquest—Brenna’s old boyfriend, Seamus—to keep her warm at night. And she’s less than thrilled to hear about Brenna’s return.

But when tragedy strikes, it brings their father back to Hill n’Valley, and the three sisters will have a lot of issues to resolve…

What Readers are saying…

“Coming Home is an enjoyable women’s fiction novel about sisterly relationships that will give you a warm fuzzy feeling and will leave a smile on your face.”

“What a heart warming book this turned out to be!”
