S.L. Scott

Release Date: May 15

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author S.L. Scott brings the charm and romance,
smiles and laughs to Along Came Charlie. This friends-to-more novel is packed with heartfelt
emotion reminiscent of the best of chick lit of the past with a modern twist for today’s

I’ll be your date, and you’ll be mine.

Who says a funeral can’t be romantic?
Okay, everyone. Including myself.
That doesn’t stop the rumor mill from turning when I show up with a beautiful redhead on my

That redhead also just happens to be a stranger, relatively speaking. Charlotte Barrow and I
have run into each other a few times—on the subway, at a bar, and now on our way to
separate funerals. Instead of the prodigal son who let his parents down showing up alone, I
traded favors and brought a date. The deal made sense at the time.

You be my date, and I’ll be yours.

Who knew bringing a date to your ex-fiancé’s funeral would cause such a stir?
Technically, I did.
I invited him anyway for moral support. It didn’t hurt that he was handsome.

The cold-hearted stares that greeted us didn’t matter. We found comfort in each other and
formed a friendship from there. Charles Adams was nothing like my ex. The pressure wasn’t
there to be anyone other than who I was. He also loved my cupcakes as much as I enjoyed his

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Having read several angsty books from S.L. Scott, I was pleasantly surprised by this sweet story between Charlie A. and Charlie (Charlotte) B. It was a wonderful slow-burn, friends-to-lovers romance with a heavy focus on the developing friendship between these two characters. From the moment they first noticed each other on the subway to their first friend-date at a pair of funerals (yes, yes, but it works!), I adored these two characters. Scott perfectly captured every nuance as their friendship developed, the yearning, the longing, the will-they-or-won’t-they, and poor Charlie B’s trust issues after a broken engagement and the subsequent guilt and struggles that came with all she had to work through in order to be the best version of herself so she could be the partner Charlie deserved. This story is just lovely! I received a complimentary copy and voluntarily left a review.
