Synopsis from Goodreads

When the one you want …

Daisy doesn’t believe love is ever-lasting, so it’s ironic as hell that she parlayed a business degree into a wedding planning business. More ironic still is her latest job bringing her back into contact with the man who’d taught her that love can’t last.

Is the one you can’t have…

To say Diego has been taught the hard way to bury emotions is an understatement. But when he’s called home to help the brother he hasn’t seen or spoken to in years, that’s one thing. It’s another entirely to also come face to face with the first woman he ever loved. First and only…

Can love conquer all?

Daisy’s learned to depend only on herself, and Diego is and always has been an island of one. And yet when they’re together, even when they’re bickering, still wary and haunted by memories of what was … it’s magic. The question is, how to find their way back to each other…?


Twist of Fate is a super-fast read with new to the Heartbreaker Bay series characters although there is a link to the area through the tattoo shop Sadie (Playing for Keeps) works in.

Daisy and Diego were everything to each other growing up. Neither of them had a particularly easy home life but Diego’s took a downward turn following his father’s stroke. This also coincided with Daisy leaving for college. As Diego’s world crumbled around him, he withdrew from Daisy ultimately breaking both their hearts.

Ten years later Diego returns to Heartbreaker Bay for his brother, Rocco’s, wedding. With none other than Daisy as the wedding planner. Thrown together by two meddling grooms, Daisy and Diego have to work through the issues they carry from their past in order to move forward.

It is obvious that neither Daisy or Diego has ever really moved on from the other person; they simply buried the feelings they had and they have lain dormant until they could be together again.

Twist of Fate is a heart-warming second-chance romance with a side of humorous meddling.
