Hello and welcome!

I'm Kate O'Keeffe and I write fun, romantic chick lit and rom-com stories. Many of my books are set in beautiful New Zealand, and they are all feel-good stories with happily ever afters - the type that make you get the warm fuzzies inside we all adore.

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

Happy reading!

The newest book in the Amazon bestselling Cozy Cottage Café series is OUT NOW!

As with all my titles, it can be read as part of the series, or as a standalone title.

What do you do when you’ve agreed to a pact with your friends to get married, but neither you nor the guy in your sights is quite ready to fall in love?

Bailey De Luca is the last of her friends to complete the Last First Date pact—to marry the next guy she dates. But lady luck must be in a bad mood because so far, it's all come to nothing.

Everywhere she looks people are in love. Everyone except her. Is she fundamentally unlovable? Or is it that she’s already found—and lost—The One? Whatever the reason, one thing's for sure: Bailey never expected to be alone at thirty.

When one of her friends announces her engagement with a rock that could eclipse the sun, Bailey throws herself into a new business. Starting up Cozy Cottage Catering seems like the perfect way to bury her head in the sand. But fate has other ideas, and soon Bailey is swept off her feet by the oh-so cute Ryan Jones.

Ryan may seem like the perfect combination of Prince Charming meets Thor (without the hammer), but is Bailey ready to be with him?

Or will the ghost of her past love prevent her from finding happiness again?
