a bird in the oven-3.jpg

Olivia Holland expected to be married and starting a family by the time she turned thirty. Instead, she lives in the condo next door to her best friend without even so much as a pet. It’s not as bad as it sounds, except on the nights that said best friend’s very active sex life keeps her awake with the noise of his head board slamming against their shared bedroom wall. Still, Ollie is her best friend in the entire world and living next to him has perks—a willing spider exterminator, furnace repairman, and computer guru.


Oliver Cucinelli has a problem. A gargantuan conundrum. He truly loves very few things in his complicated existence—his job, his family, and his best friend, Liv. He’s happy to do anything she asks of him, from killing miniscule spiders to repairing her laptop. Which is exactly how he discovers that she has a severe case of baby fever. Ollie always knew Liv would outgrow him one day. He never expected it to be so soon.


A night of neighbor-watching debauchery, an unfortunate misunderstanding with Oliver’s mom, and a healthy dose of panic later, Oliver comes up with the perfect solution to everyone’s problems.


He’ll put a bird in Olivia’s oven. By Thanksgiving.


  • Another NaNoWriMo novel.

  • This was written and published in a single month. It could not have happened without my awesome editor and cover designer!

  • Oliver is autistic.

  • If you've met one person with autism, you've met one person with autism. Oliver cannot and should not be compared with anyone else, the same as any other character.
