J. (Jill) Bengtsson writes contemporary novels focused on love, humor, passion, and family. Her heroines are strong, nurturing, and quirky while her heroes are what dreams are made of - gorgeous, committed, and in need of a little saving. With her novels, you will rediscover the rush and joy of falling in love.

A stay-at-home mom for twenty-one years, Jill's debut novel, Cake A Love Story, was written for fun after she’d read a disappointing romance and felt she could do better. Just wanting feedback on her story, Jill released Cake onto Amazon and watched in stunned disbelief as the book took flight.

Hi Mary,
Sorry you didn't get anything done this weekend. 😂 So happy you liked the stories though. I love the McKallisters. Fiercely Emma (book 3) has been written and is just finishing up with the editing. It's been getting positive buzz so I'm hopeful it will live up to expectation. I have my narrators booked for July 3rd and if all goes as planned all book formats will be released together next month(although Audible can be a little unpredictable and may release a few days behind). Next week I'll post the release date on Facebook. 😀(less)

So glad you are enjoying the audiobook series. The narrators are really great. I'm so lucky they agree to do my books because they are busy people, all of them.
All three books in the series are available in trade paperback on Amazon (the mat See J.’s answer.
