The author of The Long Weekend, romance nominee for the 2019 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize, brings you a classic second-chance romance that spans decades.
First loves are never easy. Neither are second chances.
In the summer of 1988, Samantha Temple had no choice but to leave her life behind and move to the unknown and mysterious town of Merrowley. She hated it, but dark and handsome T.J. would change everything.
Their love was strong, beautiful and meant to last...
But it didn’t.
On a warm day in 2010, Samantha uncovers a truth kept hidden from her for over twenty years. Her discovery not only resurrects that summer she tried so hard to keep locked away, but the feelings she fought to repress.
Catapulted down memory lane, Sam tries to piece together her past by finding the one that left her heart shattered. Through her own uncertainties and fears, she retraces her steps. What she finds not only alters what’s left of her family, but reopens her heart to the possibilities of second chances.
Romance Nominee For Kobo’s 2019 Emerging Writer Prize
A weekend filled with family, a funeral and falling in love.
"My night began with getting dumped. I was sure it couldn’t get worse, but little did I know it would."
The news of her grandmother’s death is hard to take, but even harder is the reality that Ellie Williams must now return home to the Williams’ Orchards for the funeral.
Surrounded by her guilt, the ghosts from her past and her passive-aggressive mother, it’s no wonder Ellie spends her time with her gorgeous neighbour, and former crush, Devon Barrett. He’s still as hot as ever, but now he’s intertwined in Ellie’s life in ways she never would have imagined.
Torn by unwanted responsibilities and her growing feelings for Devon, Ellie must decide which she should follow: her head or her heart.
The Long Weekend is about how life doesn’t always go according to plan but can surprise you. If you like steamy small-town romances between the boy next door and the city girl, Mimi Flood’s debut novel is your next favourite read.

I have been writing since the age of twelve, but after becoming a stay-at-home mom, I made it a full-time gig.
In 2008, I earned my BFA from Concordia University, with a major in Film studies and a minor in Creative Writing. I developed my people-watching skills at jobs such as a horse racetrack and a law firm.
When I'm not writing about the complexities of love and romance, I can be found with my nose in a book or watching my favourite shows in the company of my husband, my dog and a chilled glass of white wine.
