Baggage Check is the third in a charming series about a group of thirty-somethings in Atlanta making surprising discoveries about friendship, love, and happily-ever-after.

At 35, Rebecca Williamson is surrounded by happy endings.

Her friends Suzanne and Marci are living out their own personal fairy tales in Atlanta. But despite Rebecca's best efforts four years ago, her adorable college friend Jake Stillwell has officially slipped through her fingers and broken her heart. When Rebecca gets a frantic phone call from her mother back in Alabama, Rebecca is pulled back to the tiny town she worked so hard to leave behind and forced to face the hard truths about her family and past. A past that includes Deputy Alex Chen, who thinks of Rebecca as more than just an old friend's kid sister. Can Rebecca navigate the chaos and get her life back to normal? Will Alex prove himself to be the friend she's always needed? Or will she discover that the door to Jake is not as tightly closed as she thought?

M.J. Pullen returns in this final installment to the same captivating group of lovelorn friends, this time following the girl group's frenemy, Rebecca, as she's forced to confront her past. Raising the stakes, Pullen delivers an absorbing, romantic novel that poses the question, what if everything you were looking for was right where you started?

About the Author:

MANDA (M.J.) PULLEN is the author of complex, funny contemporary romances including The Marriage Pact (Thomas Dunne Books, November 2015). She was raised in the suburbs of Atlanta by a physicist and a flower child, who taught her that life is tragic and funny, and real love is anything but simple. After traveling around Europe and living in cities like Austin and Portland, she returned to Atlanta where she lives with her husband and two sons.

Review:

"Readers will quickly fall in with Pullen’s natural storytelling style and realistically flawed characters. As with the previous titles in the series, there is enough of a love story here to please romance readers, while women’s fiction fans will be more than satisfied with the way the relationships with Rebecca’s family and friends play out." ―Booklist on Baggage Check

“In this story, no romance, friendship, or parent-child relationship is perfect, which makes it all the more uplifting and sweet.” ―Kirkus Reviews on Baggage Check

Praise for M.J. Pullen's Regrets Only:

“This entertaining blend of comedy and romance―with a healthy dash of suspense―will delight fans of funny women's fiction.” ―Booklist

“Romance abounds in this sexy and modern love story.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Both protagonists are incredibly likable, though flawed, and together their friendshipo-fueled chemistry sizzles. Despite the thread of suspense that runs through the plot, the story still manages to convey a tone of warmth. Dylan himself evokes smiles nearly every time he appears on teh page, thanks to his wry amusement, and, frankly, his sheer dreaminess. The reminder not to judge a person by assumptions rings true and timely.” ―Romantic Times, four star review

“A deftly written and captivating tale of how our best laid plans often go astray. Just as Suzanne's nearly perfect life falls apart she finds herself on a roller-coaster journey (with a country music star no less!) with surprises both haunting and heartening, leading her to exactly where she was meant to be. Don't miss this sexy and engrossing romp!” ―Cherry Adair, New York Times bestselling author on Regrets Only

“M.J. Pullen writes relatable characters who are quirky and fun. I really enjoyed Regrets Only.” ― Susan Hatler, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

Regrets Only has it all! A sprinkle of romance with a dab mystery. Add a pinch of family dynamics, blend in a few dreams with a dab between the sheets that will cause some blushing. A delightful recipe for a sweet journey. I love this book...it is on my keeper shelf!” ―Fresh Fiction
