The F Word
When a holiday romance, falling for your boss, and a reality TV show aren’t enough of a challenge—just add a pandemic!
Personal assistant Jen Parker is eager to start her new job on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, supporting Noah “The Casanova Cook” Ryder, a temperamental chef who is judging a blockbuster television cooking show. But Jen, a widow, has a secret mission at the beach—a personal, emotional goal she must accomplish by Christmas Eve.
Noah is famous for seducing a starlet every new season. But with Home Cook America filming during a coronavirus quarantine, the Restaurant Romeo is off his game. The stress of lockdown—not to mention his own long-held secret—has Noah struggling to launch his make-it-or-break-it newest restaurant. And that’s before his longtime business partner turns into his worst frenemy (or is that just a plain enemy?)
Soon, Jen and Noah’s budding attraction is tested by vegan Thanksgiving, the world’s ugliest charm bracelet, and a possessed elevator. Every passing day—and night—ups the ante on their secret pasts. But if this culinary couple can’t stand the heat, there’s no way out of their COVID-locked-down kitchen!
If you fell hard for the feel-good rom-coms of Emily Henry, Christina Lauren, and Tessa Bailey, then grab a seat, because The F Word is the perfect romantic comedy escape for you.

ACTION AND ADVENTURE IN IMAGINARY WORLDS
In Mindy’s traditional fantasy novels, brave young women challenge the conventions of their societies, fighting secular and religious authorities to bring justice and peace to those in need. The Keara’s Raven Series is written for middle-grade readers but can be enjoyed by adults as well. The Lost Guild Series and Season of Sacrifice (a stand-alone novel) are intended for adults.
Mindy has a number of books that don’t fit into traditional categories. She has edited two anthologies of short fiction. She has two non-fiction books about writing. And she’s written short stories and essays that are collected in volumes with other authors’ works.
