Would you agree to a pact to marry the next guy you date? Follow four friends in their quest to find “The One” in these heart-warming, laugh-out-loud rom coms.
This is the complete Cozy Cottage Café series. Four full-length romantic comedies about the road to finding love, set in Auckland, New Zealand, the beautiful “city of sails.”
One story picks up where the previous story leaves off, so you can binge read all of them together in one box set!
ONE LAST FIRST DATE
Cassie Dunhill and her friends make a pact to marry the next guy they each date. What could possibly go wrong?
Cassie is sick of dating. It’s been ten years and it’s time, time to find The One. It’s either that or buy a fetching habit and veil and abandon the whole thing. But Cassie believes in love, and she’s not ready to give up yet.
Cassie and her best friends make a pact that the next date they go on will be their One Last First Date. The pressure is on to find Mr. Right, and Cassie’s the first to find him: Parker Hamilton. He’s good-looking, smart, cultured—and a doctor. Despite his obvious credentials, Cassie’s not taking any chances. She’s vetted Parker so thoroughly she could offer some pointers to the CIA. Needless to say, he passes with flying colors.
Things get complicated when Will Jordan, her irritating work colleague, muscles in on her dream job and her love life. Will is a typical guy, complete with nicknames for everyone, even Cassie. His good looks and relaxed, easy nature can be distracting. But Cassie can do without that kind of distraction right now, no matter how good Will looks with his shirt off.
In the end, is there only One Last First Date?
TWO LAST FIRST DATES
To Paige Miller Two Last First Dates sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.
Paige is having a rough time. She’s unhappy in her career, and her One Last First Date ended in total disaster. Now, she has to figure out what to do professionally and personally. Life as a spinster with fifteen cats doesn’t sound too bad, though.
Deciding to give up on love, Paige begrudgingly befriends Josh Bentley, the friendly coffee delivery guy, while helping out at the Cozy Cottage Café. His T-shirts make her eyes roll, but their runs have become an important part of her day and a blessing to her waistline, because Bailey’s cakes are too good to pass up.
Meanwhile, her best friends offer to find Mr. Right for her, and all Paige has to do is let them. Then, the man of her dreams walks through the door. Marcus Hahn is as good-looking as he is charming, and any thoughts Paige had of being alone with those fifteen cats fly out the window. Now, she just has to hope her friends choose him as her Last First Date.
But in the end, are Two Last First Dates enough to find The One?
THREE LAST FIRST DATES
When it comes to men, Marissa Jones is totally committed to not being committed. One major heartbreak is enough for her.
Against her better judgment, Marissa agrees to a pact with her friends to marry the next guy she dates. But she isn’t going to take any chances. For her, it’s a numbers game, and one Last First Date just isn’t enough.
So, she ups the ante–three first dates with three very different guys in one day.
But can any of these men live up to her high standards?
Despite a few bumps in the road, from the three, she chooses The One. That is until the ex she never got over turns up, changing everything.
In the end, do you choose love or does love choose you?
FOUR LAST FIRST DATES
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?

What people are saying about the Cozy Cottage Café Romantic Comedy Box Set:
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “I SO loved all the books in the Cozy Cottage Café series (actually got hooked from book one and stalked Kate’s author page for each new book release after that). We get to know Cassie, Marissa, and Paige as they embark on their individual journeys toward love. I felt like I knew these women as if they were my own besties by the end of each book! There are several LOL moments and definitely book boyfriends who’ll make your heart flutter.” – Joslyn Westbrook, author
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “This is an adorable series! I finish each book glad that the characters find their happy ever after, but sad that the story has to end, kind of like I’m leaving behind a good friend. But then there’s another book to dive into, and I’m happy again!” – Holly Kerr, author
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “If you’ve never read a Kate O’Keefe novel and you’re a fan of romantic comedies, here’s what you need to know: the Cozy Cottage Café Series is one delicious serving of ooey gooey, heart-warming storytelling after another. Friends united by a love for the treats at their favorite bakery and their unlucky attempts at finding love make a pact to marry the next man they date. This simple thread unwinds in multiple directions within each book as we get to know unique and uniquely strong women who need to forge their individual paths toward their happily-ever-afters. Their stories are as compelling as the men they meet. These books are really easy to read and equally satisfying. Count on a lot of laughs, even more contented sighs, and a lingering desire to sample each and every one of the cakes from the Cozy Cottage Café.” – Diane Michaels, author of Ellen the Harpist
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Kate O’Keeffe almost single-handedly resurrected my love of chick-lit with this series. Cassie’s story in Book 1 had me hooked from the first page, and I fell in love with her and the yummy Will Jordan (who just so happens to look like one of my other favourite male leads, Poldark). Books 2 and 3 focus on Cassie’s best friends, Paige and Marissa, who also go through the journey of finding “the one” by choosing the next guy they date. Kate has a way of bringing the Cozy Cottage Cafe to life and making you wish the love interests in these books were real people! Highly recommend.” – Kirsty McManus, author of 1996
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “I thoroughly enjoyed following these women, who start to feel like old friends, on their journeys. Some of my favorite book boyfriends are here as well. A cozy, warm, wonderful set of books that will leave you wanting more — and maybe wanting a little cake as well.” – Laurie Baxter, author
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “I LOVE this series! Each heroine is so different and utterly compelling. They are all strong, determined women with funny and endearing foibles and quirks – and they are so much fun to root for! The heroes are eclectic and wonderful as well – some maddening or suave or down-to-earth or jocular or swoony or irresistible or with an inescapable charm that sneaks up and won’t let go. Every page of every book is a delight, entertaining with laugh-out-loud descriptions and dialogue. And how these books captivate with sigh-inducing, toe-curling moments of romance! I highly recommend this box set for any lover of RomCom! And talk about the perfect gift!!!!!” – Geralyn Corcillo, bestselling author
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Can’t say how much I love Kate O’Keeffe and her books, they get me involved and make me feel apart of their lives. I didn’t want them to end.” – Amazon reviewer
