Charlie Collins finally gets a life
Cover 2021.jpg

She went seeking some sort of bond with her daughter. She didn’t expect to find romance. Or a place to belong…

Melbourne, Australia. Forty-something single mom Charlie Collins is terrified of getting old. Realizing hot flashes are the only thing likely to sizzle between her sheets, she hits the Chardonnay hard when she loses her job and experiences an ego-demolishing date. Determined to turn things around and bond with her monosyllabic daughter, she rents a van for a road trip… only to have it come to a grinding halt in a small coastal town.

Stranded and searching for help, they meet a deliciously sexy doctor… and a smooth silver fox who runs the local café. And when the plucky divorcée suddenly finds herself in the middle of a midlife love triangle, she can’t decide if she’s found heaven or a fresh brand of hell.

Has Charlie’s crisis hit another calamitous crossroads, or will this quiet community help her reclaim her soul?

Charlie Collins (finally) Gets a Life is a fun and flirty romantic comedy.

If you like emotional chick-lit, laugh-out-loud stories, and authentic female leads, then you’ll love Emma Powell’s quirky tale.
