SUMMARY: For Marci Thompson, turning thirty is not at all what it is cracked up to be. She lives alone in 480 square feet of converted motel space, hundreds of miles from her friends and family. She works in a temporary accounting assignment that has somehow stretched from two weeks into nine months. And the only bright spot in her life, not to mention the only sex she’s had in two years, is an illicit affair with her married boss.
Then the reappearance of a cocktail napkin she hasn’t seen in a decade reminds her of a long-forgotten promise to a friend, and Marci’s life gets complicated, fast. The lines between right and wrong, fantasy and reality, heartache and happiness are all about to get very blurry, as Marci faces the most difficult choices of her life.

The eBook can be read on any Kindle device, as well as iPad, iPhone, Android devices, Blackberry, and even your PC, using a free downloadable application from amazon.com. The paperback can be read in the bathtub.

Regrets Only is M.J.’s second novel, following the story of Suzanne, Marci’s best friend in The Marriage Pact

At thirty-three, Suzanne Hamilton has it all.  A successful party-planning business with an elite client list.  A swank condo in a hot Atlanta neighborhood and a close group of friends – especially her longtime best friend Marci. A list of men a mile long who have tried to win her heart and failed. Plus, she’s just landed the event that will take her career and social status to the next level. What could she possibly have to regret?
Then a freak accident changes everything, and Suzanne discovers that her near-perfect life is just a few steps away from total disaster. She is humiliated and at risk of losing it all… except the surprising support of her newest celebrity client. With nothing else to go on, Suzanne follows him into an unexpected job and unfamiliar territory. Soon she will question everything – her career, her past, her friendships, and even her own dating rules.
But when her catalog of past relationships turns into a list of criminal suspects, she is faced with the horrifying possibility that she may not live to regret any of it…

While technically a sequel, the story takes place nearly three years after the previous book and can definitely stand on its own: you don’t need to read TMP in order to enjoy Regrets Only (although, spoiler alert, RO will reveal the ending of the first book if you plan to go back and read it later!)
