Double Click Release and Excerpt


Double Click is a sequel to Click: An Online Love Story, the modern epistolary novel that book bloggers and reviewers called hilarious, clever and full of fun. 

In the first book, fast approaching her 30th birthday and finding herself not married, not dating, and without even a prospect or a house full of cats, Renee Greene reluctantly joined her best guy pal on a journey to find love online in Los Angeles.  The story unfolded entirely through emails between Renee and her best friends as well as the gentlemen suitors she met online.  Fraught with BCC's, FWD's and inadvertent Reply to All's, readers rooted for Renee to "click" with the right man. 

Double Click, which follows the same all-email format, picks up with the same main characters six months after the original books ends.  If the first book was about Renee’s search for love online, this book is about whether she and her friends have all found their “HEA” or “happily ever after.”  Through a marriage proposal, wedding, new baby and unexpected love twist, Double Click allows readers to cheer, laugh, cry and cringe following the email exploits of Renee and friends.

Excerpt:

From:  Renee Greene – August 22, 2012 – 9:25 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject: Should I be worried?

Are you feeling okay?  You don’t have a terminal illness that I, as you very best friend, should be aware of, do you?


From:  Shelley Manning – August 22, 2012 – 9:27 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

No, I’m not dying.  Why do you ask?


From:  Renee Greene – August 22, 2012 – 9:34 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

You just don’t seem like yourself.  That really good looking guy at Flint’s happy hour was totally into you and you…well…you didn’t even really give him a second look.  That’s so out of character for you that I’m just wondering if you are okay.


From:  Shelley Manning – August 22, 2012 – 9:37 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

Goodness, girl!  I can’t take a night off of being aroused without arousing suspicion?


From:  Renee Greene – August 22, 2012 – 9:42 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

Ha!  That was funny!

But seriously, you just haven’t seemed your “normal,” make-me-“Greene”-with-envy self for quite a while now and I wanted to make sure you were okay.


From:  Shelley Manning – August 22, 2012 – 9:47 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

I’m fine, Sweetie.  And if you haven’t noticed, you don’t need to be – as you’ve joked about it – “Greene” with envy.  You’ve got a great guy.


From:  Renee Greene – August 22, 2012 – 9:48 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

Are you bothered that you don’t have a great guy? 


From:  Shelley Manning – August 22, 2012 – 9:54 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

My, oh my.  These emails are becoming so serious.  I just didn’t feel like hooking up last night.  Don’t make it into something bigger than it is. 


From:  Renee Greene – August 22, 2012 – 9:59 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

Okay, okay.  But really, we are getting older.  Maybe you are thinking that you want to find that someone special.  Maybe you’ve already found that someone special and it scares you?


From:  Shelley Manning – August 22, 2012 – 10:04 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

Oh, Sweetie.  The beauty of life (and me, for that matter), is that it doesn’t matter how old you are.  You can still be as immature as you want to be. 


From:  Renee Greene – August 22, 2012 – 10:05 AM
To:  Shelley Manning
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

Come on!  I’m being serious!


From:  Shelley Manning – August 22, 2012 – 10:07 AM
To:  Renee Greene
Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

Renee Michele Greene!  If this is another veiled attempt to get me to admit (not that I’m admitting anything!) that I have feeling for Finlay, well, I’m going to scream.  But this is email.  So I will just have to type in ALL CAPS.  Again, I DO NOT LIKE FINLAY!



From:  Renee Greene – August 22, 2012 – 10:09 AM

Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

I hear (read) you.  I hear (read) you.  I will drop the subject.  Just glad to know you aren’t dying. 


From:  Shelley Manning – August 22, 2012 – 10:10 AM

Just dying to stop having this conversation.

Subject: Re: Should I be worried?

Message received! But thanks for bringing some levity back to things.  I’d better get back to work.  Talk with you later.

  1. These books sound fun, but I don't know if I would be able to read a whole book in that format. I think I would feel like I needed more and wouldn't be able to connect with the characters well. Thanks for sharing.
