Just Desserts!

Vicki Batman, who creates feisty, mischievous, playful characters, has just released an anthology of sweet, sometimes funny, and heart-warming short stories, Just Desserts And Other Stories.

For me, with its fast pace and quick stories, this is a perfect read for the bus ride home from the "day job." Others might find it a great beach read. Sit back, and take a peek at what's beneath the book cover!

From sassy writer Vicki Batman comes eleven very short tales with a dash of humor.

Story Blurb: 

Love blossoms in the small town of Sommerville in these clean and wholesome, heart-warming short tales, filled with fun and forever possibilities.

Included are:

Bug Stuff ~ An accountant unites with his co-worker to exterminate a pesky adversary.

Just Desserts ~ A political dinner gone disastrous brings together a reluctant attendee and her handsome seat-mate.

With This Ring ~ When a wife forgets the all-important little black dress, the evening turns into something utterly unforgettable.

Good Girls Finish First ~ When men friends are challenged to fix breakfast if they lose a race, one woman leads the pack and discovers finishing first can lead to romance.

Ouch ~ Who knew a yoga class would be so dangerous...and romantic?

Man Theory ~ When a geeky co-worker espouses his theory on love, a friend risks her heart.

Tommy and the Teacher ~ A young boy steals from the school’s book fair causing interesting possibilities to arise.

Absolutely Positively Lost ~ Helping a map-challenged young man find his way is truly serendipitous.

The Little Birdie Who ~ A new town, a new friend, a new beginning. Who would have thought a little bird could bring two people together?

Check Her Out ~ It’s a sticky situation, especially between a store manager and Auntie Caren when her nephew must pay for the gum he stole.

This Is Not Working ~ One of those days at a new job when nothing is going right, and then the boss steps in.
