The Second Time We Met

#1 Best Seller

Available from Amazon and Online Retailers


With another chance at love, what could possibly go wrong?

Recovering from heartbreak, unlucky-in-love events manager Cara has vowed to avoid relationships. That is until fate throws her into the path of handsome and kind Henry, who is worlds apart from the men she’s dated before. Unfortunately, this encounter is short-lived when Cara misses her coach home—and with it, any chance of seeing him again.

But fate is not finished with the mismatched couple. When Cara quite literally bumps into Henry a second time at a work event, the run-in leaves them with feelings instead of bruises, and they can’t wait another day before seeing each other again. Yet it soon becomes clear how deeply different their worlds are: Cara’s drama-filled African and Caribbean family couldn’t be further from Henry’s family of wealthy lords and ladies.

With interfering relatives, problem friends, and an inconvenient ex-boyfriend attempting a comeback, everything seems stacked against the two new lovebirds. This is no straightforward love story—Cara and Henry will have to get creative with romance if they stand any chance of beating the odds to win their happy ever after.

Author’s Comment


I was inspired by my own large, boisterous family to write this family-centred drama featuring Cara and Henry. I wanted to explore how two people in love would have to navigate the hurdles of coming from two different worlds and cultures. I hope you enjoy the story of this modern-day Juliet and Romeo.

“I absolutely loved the story! A diverse cast of characters from different backgrounds who are not as unlike each other as first appearance seemed to show. Romantic, funny and dad in equal measure.”
