The D Word - Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke (2011)

Jordan and Elle have both recently left relationships they felt were not working for them. Jordan divorced her husband, Kevin, with the hope of finding a more fulfilling life and Elle broke off her engagement to Chase feeling he was not the right person for her. When Elle starts dating Kevin, Jordan second-guesses her desire for their divorce and tries everything in her power to win him back. When Elle sees the lengths Jordan is willing to go to in order to put her family back together, she wonders whether dating a man with baggage is really worth it, and if Chase is, in fact, the one for her. Written from the points of view of both women, The D Word explores the conflict between what is comfortable and familiar and what you know in your heart to be true. (LEK)

Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, the team behind the Chick Lit Is Not Dead website, are about to release their second novel as an ebook. The summary of The D Word says: "Jordan Daniels and Elle Ryan thought their lives would become less complicated when they walked away from their respective relationships one year ago. But instead, they find themselves vying for a relationship with the same divorced man. As a spiritual counsellor, newly single mother Jordan Daniels makes her living predicting other people's futures. If only she could foresee her own. A year after filing for divorce from her husband, Kevin, he seems to be the one moving on effortlessly, while Jordan still can't bring herself to fill his old underwear drawer. But it's not until Jordan's polar opposite, Elle, steals Kevin's heart that Jordan becomes convinced she'll be replaced both as a wife and a mother to her five-year-old son, Max. When Elle met Kevin, the last thing she wanted was another relationship. Especially not with a man with baggage - she already had enough of her own. She left her fiance, Chase, right before their wedding to avoid the imminent D word, something she's convinced runs in her family like a disease. But a year later, she's no closer to becoming less sceptical about marriage. And despite her attachment to Kevin and his son, when Elle sees just how far Jordan's willing to go to win Kevin back, Elle starts to question if she should have left Chase in the first place." The D Word is out in June.
