Best Laid Plans

The Yellow Brick Road Gang (Volume 1)

Constance O'Day Flannery

Tor Paranormal Romance

The Yellow Brick Road Gang, otherwise known as Metaphysical Misadventures in the Search for Enlightenment, was once just a book club. Now, they are a circle of friends as close as family. Together they embarked on a spiritual search -- and throughout the last eight years each woman has come to realize that the only constant is change and that anything is possible.

Cristine and her partner have always approached their relationship like a business, and Cristine prides herself on her cool-headed and logical thinking. But when Cristine's partner decides he doesn't want to renew their relationship contract, Cristine is devastated. Trying to help her, the Yellow Brick Road Gang devises a ritual to bring Cristine a new lover: Mix cayenne pepper for hot passion and dried mustard for strength, add a tiny bit of mint for sweetness, then cast into a fire.

Enter Daniel Burns. He is no ordinary man. In fact, he isn't a man at all…

Praise for Best Laid Plans

"She proves that love is timeless."--Nora Roberts

"She is a remarkable talent."--Rendezvous

"O'Day-Flannery slowly and carefully builds the suspense, and a relationship, maintaining a deliberate pace that finally yields a happy ending. The paranormal element is miniscule, ceding importance to the conspiracy, which proves to be enticing."--Booklist on Colliding Forces

"Shifting Love is unique, thrilling and chock-full of emotion, proving O'Day-Flannery is still at the top of her game!"--The Romantic Times BookClub Magazine, 4 1/2 stars on Shifting Love

"Shifting Love read like Deb Smith's Alice at Heart crossed with Touched by a (Sexy) Angel. The dual heroes in the book--Julian and Marcus--will leave you guessing until the very end."--Science Fiction Romance

"Shifting Love is a tale that is magnificent with vivid storytelling and charm. It is a powerful creation of fantasy, paranormal and romance that offers so much for so many readers. It is something that all readers should have on their keeper shelves."--The Road to Romance on Shifting Love
