Smart, Fun, Relatable Fiction

Party of One

Party of One, a women’s contemporary novel set on Cape Cod. Originally chosen one of five finalists in the 2011 Christian Writers Guild Operation First Novel Contest, Elk Lake Publishing, Inc. released it May 2017.

When widow Annie McGee breaks through grief, she falls flat on her face into loneliness. In a bold move for this private woman, she founds Party of One, a communal table for single diners. Outside of these weekly gatherings at a small, local restaurant, she has no intention of getting involved in the diverse lives of the people who join her.

Set in her ways and critical, Annie believes she has all the answers she needs for her life and some left over for others. When confusion and curiosity chip away at her pride, she asks God for a sign, then gets way more than she hopes for. Her self-assurance continues to falter when she realizes the only thing weirder than the quirks of her eclectic tablemates is her fear of losing their company.
