Hello and welcome!

I'm Kate O'Keeffe and I write fun, feel-good, romantic chick lit and rom com stories. Many of my books are set in beautiful New Zealand, and they all have feel-good, happy endings - the type that make you smile.

So, dive on in! I hope you find something here to enjoy.

Happy reading!

Bailey De Luca may have agreed to a pact to marry the next guy she dates, but so far it’s all come to nothing.

She doesn’t want to admit it but she’s desperate and dateless. Everywhere Bailey looks people are in love, one of her friends is even getting married. So why can’t Bailey find “the one” for her?

Maybe it’s because she had  him and now he’s gone? Maybe you only ever get one shot at happiness? Or it could be she’s too scared to move on, to get out there and look for him. Whatever the reason, one thing’s for sure: Bailey never expected to be alone at thirty.

So, she gives speed dating a try—with disastrous results. But when her friend suggests they start up a new business together, Bailey realizes she needs to take the leap, to try something new. After all, you’ve got to make things happen in this life, right?

And maybe—just maybe—she should go on a date with Ryan Jones, the guy who looks like he could be Thor’s younger brother.

In the end, will Bailey be able to let go so she can take the leap with her Last First Date?

RELEASING AUGUST 9TH!


Would you switch lives with someone you just met?

Sabrina Monroe is poised and ready for her future as Mrs. Todd Edward Blakely. Everything seems perfect, but on the big day, suddenly she’s not so sure. Her nicely mapped out life ahead of her, she finds herself in her own movie scene as the runaway bride, climbing out of the bathroom window. All she can think is escape.

Addison Bloom needs a life makeover. She’s travelled the world to find love–and failed. On her way back from yet another friend’s wedding, she’s starts to feel ill at the mere thought of seeing another veil that’s not hers. Should she go back home and marry her former sweetheart, or stick it out looking for love?

Sabrina and Addison are both on the run, wanting to escape to a new life. As the two strangers talk at an airport, discovering they both have the same job, a crazy idea unfolds–one which might provide the answers they’ve both been looking for.

Is there such a thing as a One Way Ticket to a new life, or will they find they’re running from themselves, not just the past?
