'Hilarious, cosy, devastatingly romantic . . . a brilliant, magic-filled exploration of second chances' Sarah Adler

A steamy, riotous second-chance romance about a magical florist's unexpected reunion with her high school sweetheart, while she fake dates his soon-to-be stepbrother . . . from the bestselling author of You Deserve Each Other

The small, magical town of Moonville is the perfect place for flora fortunist Romina Tempest to expand her shop, where she uses the language of flowers to help the hopeful manifest their love lives. After giving up on her own big romance many years ago, at least she can bask in the promise of others'.

So when the shop's potential financier shares news of his wedding, Romina jumps at the opportunity to discuss helping the business . . . even if it means she has to fake-date her chaotic colleague Trevor to get an invitation. But all hell breaks loose when she discovers Trevor's soon-to-be stepbrother is none other than Alex King: her high school sweetheart. Her greatest love. The boy who, eleven years ago, broke her heart.

What starts as an innocent misunderstanding becomes a week-long fake-dating scheme, as Romina resolves to make Alex pay for breaking her heart. The only issue? She can't deny their still-burning connection. Caught between showing Alex what he lost and coming clean and risking her business, Romina must decide whether giving Alex another chance means going back on herself, or finally releasing her hold on the past.

Reviews for Old Flames and New Fortunes

This book took possession of my whole heart with its laugh-out-loud wit, wonderfully tender romance, and lovable characters, including the most swooningly quotable hero. Sarah Hogle is a romcom genius, and Old Flames and New Fortunes is perfection * India Holton, author of The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels * I fell so hard and so fast for this hilarious, cozy, devastatingly romantic story! Old Flames and New Fortunes is a brilliant, magic-filled exploration of second chances and what it means to open up your heart again. It may just be my favorite Sarah Hogle book yet * Sarah Adler, author of Mrs. Nash's Ashes * Heart-warming and utterly enchanting, Old Flames and New Fortunes had me under its spell from page one. Hogle grounds the story with real emotional weight while letting her fantastical elements flourish, and the result is nothing short of magical and testament to the idea that, although life might not turn out the way we plan, there's always room for hope, love, and miracles -- Sarah Grunder Ruiz I am a Sarah Hogle fan first, human second. And this story has my entire heart with its flowery magic and loveable and absolutely hilarious characters * Zoulfa Katouh, author of As Long as the Lemon Trees Grow * A delightfully magical second-chance romance . . . The world Hogle has created is cozy and warm, and fans of her previous work or of witchy romances will be crossing their fingers that this is the start of a series * Library Journal (starred review) * Old Flames and New Fortunes is as perfectly, bewitchingly constructed as one of Romina Tempest's magical bouquets. This story reads like a spell. Gorgeous, heartfelt, and romantic to the very last word * Lana Harper, author of Payback's a Witch * With her brilliant twists on magic and romance, Sarah Hogle does it again! Filled with all my favourite tropes, Old Flames and New Fortunes captures the magic of first love and the whimsy of a second chance * Ashley Poston, author of The Dead Romantics *
