About the Author
Cara Tanamachi lives near Chicago with her husband and five children (two by biology and three by marriage), and their 85-pound Goldendoodle, Theodore. Raised near Dallas, Texas by her Japanese-American dad and her English-Scottish American mom, she was the oldest of two children (the debate still rages whether she or her brother are currently the family favorite). The University of Pennsylvania (Go Quakers!) grad worked as a newspaper reporter, and then published many novels under the name Cara Lockwood, including Dixieland Sushi, I Do (But I Don't), and Pink Slip Party. A former single mom, she spent eight years dating (hilariously and awkwardly) before finding the love of her life on Bumble (yes, Bumble!). She believes we all could use a little more happily ever after.
"Charming and smart, The Second You're Single is a hilarious romp through the tangled and thorn-covered tendrils of romance. I read this in one sitting, laughed, sighed, and loved every word. This is a heartwarming tale you won't want to miss!" -New York Times bestselling Author Darynda Jones"Riotous, whip-smart, and original. Read this happy-making book if you love yourself." --Jayci Lee, Author of Booked on a Feeling "The perfect Valentine! Cara Tanamachi will charm even the most reluctant heart with this treat of a story. Sora's attempts to stay single, then her courage to follow her heart, had me cheering. Readers will fall in love!" - USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane "The Second You're Single is harder to put down than a box of gourmet Valentine's Day chocolates. It has everything I adore in a book: heart, humor, and a sizzling love story that captivated me from the first page to the last. Readers will fall head over heels for Sora and Jack. I'm already impatient for Cara Tanamachi's next book!" -Kerry Rea, author of The Wedding Ringer "Hilarious and heartwarming...highly recommended." - Library Journal (starred review)
