FANTASY LEAGUE (2022)
#RevPit Winner (2022)
Frustrated introvert Liz Lewis, trapped in a stagnant job and a shallow, lonely marriage, taps out of her life with a single goal: get the social magic she's never had and use it to make a new and improved Liz in time for her company's reorganization. Her solution: improv comedy class. But no one's willing to help her practice except her (ex?) husband Tobin, who proposes a marriage repair manual that's half improv, half bonkers romcom re-enactments. It works all too well, bringing them closer even as it uncovers exactly how much of themselves they've hidden from each other. They'll have to decide, after everything that's happened, whether it's possible to fall in love with the same person all over again.

Awkward, cautious Bell Scott accidentally gets roped into an election for the mayoralty she thought she'd win by default. Her opponent? Charismatic town darling Aron Winters, who's determined to use his charm to win her over. When Aron's campaign is sabotaged, they'll both have to decide what they'll sacrifice for their town - and each other.

(Formerly titled THE MAYOR OF BOREDOM)
I may or may not have made my own cover art for this book...I love how Bell is frowning and probably expounding on some esoteric political topic, and Aron thinks this is the most delightful thing he's ever seen and/or heard!
