It Started With A MomenteBook - 2015
Kate Wells is a modern day working mother, she loves her husband, Nigel and her cheeky twin boys, and most of the time loves her chaotic and crazy life. Kate definitely knows that life isn't a 'once upon a time story', life is real and she navigates it as best she can with honesty, humor and finesse. Nigel's best mate, Lochie Spears, begins to infiltrate Kate's subconscious. Her senses tell her to ignore it, but when they are forced together for work, things begin unraveling between them and their lust overwhelms them. By giving in to her longing, Kate now has the threat of her secret relationship with her husband's best mate being discovered and destroying her life, yet despite her misgivings she continues down this traitorous path. Nigel's sudden death changes everything. Kate; overcome with grief, laden with guilt, and feelings of traitorous remorse, turns to alcohol to numb the pain. Things start slipping, little things at first, but little things always turn into big things. She gets some unwelcome but well intended intervention from Lochie to help her get back on track and move forward with her life. But she won't allow her feelings for Lochie to resurface, her guilt is just far too great. His constant presence, and a series of nightmares, begins to melt her steely resolve and she lets Lochie back into her heart. His ongoing support gives her the strength to keep moving forward, and her first step is to sell her house. It's just too steeped with Nigel's memory. Kate enters into a temporary arrangement with Lochie, moving in to his house with him while she looks for a new home for her and the boys. But it turns into a long term deal when an unexpected pregnancy turns things on their heads. Chaos rules Kate's life, there's no escaping it. And none more so when Lochie's ex-wife turns up on their doorstop with a surprise package. It seems that a one night stand some months previous, ended in an unpredicted addition to Lochie's family.

She is perfectly happy with their unorthodox and chaotic life the way it is. But the arrival of little Zoe Spears, softens Kate's doggedness and she finally agrees to marry him. Neither could be happier, with their world full of chaos an delight and their future looking very optimistic, life is finally dealing aces.... until Kate's house of cards comes crumbling down around her all over again.
