Home for the Hollandaise – October 4, 2023 Release

About the book

My small-town high school bullies called me “walking stick.” I showed them by becoming a big-city model on the Fashion Week catwalk.

Now I’m back home to run my parents’ café, Home for the Hollandaise, while they both recover from surgeries. I came dressed to impress in my designer clothes, which is good because one of my former bullies, Reid, is the café’s general manager. Why didn’t my parents warn me?

He’s determined to usurp my authority while subtly flirting with me, but I’m determined to put Home for the Hollandaise back on the map, something Reid hasn’t done in two years as manager.

After the holidays, I’m heading back to New York City to rejoin my model boyfriend and resume my life. Never mind that Reid looks unexpectedly hot in a flannel shirt and treats my parents like they’re his own. He won’t interrupt my plans one bit. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself.

Home for the Hollandaise is a sweet romantic comedy about the magic that can happen when you give your worst enemy a second chance.

What I thought about the book

This is Erin Lucy's debut novel, and I love her style. Her settings are vividly described so you feel as if you are there. Her characters are realistic and relatable. 

Someone with a pet spider? That's not quite so relatable for me! Ha! But we had our share of exotic pets while I was growing up. 

Being Hoosier born myself, it was especially fun to read a book set in the heart of Indiana. 

If you're looking for a sweet romantic comedy, with autumn vibes, set in a small town in the Midwest, check this one out!

About the author

My name is Erin Lucy, and I’m a writer.

It’s taken me nearly five decades to be able to say that. I’m not a singer or an entertainer. I’m not a content creator or an “influencer.” I’m not a pundit or a critic.

I tried those things to varying success. They were fun for a while, but the passion didn’t last.

I’m also a mom.

I’m not sure it needs to be said, but kids require a lot of time and attention. As such, my free time is limited. When I have a moment to spare, I write.


Let’s be honest. Sometimes I nap or watch TV. I mean, kids are exhausting.

However, I have whittled down my hobbies to writing and trying to convince myself to go to the gym.

I write sweet reads.

Whether they are romance or women’s fiction, my stories have minimal to no cursing (definitely no F-bombs). They also lack intimate details. In other words, sex is either non-existent or it is behind closed doors.

Right now, I’m focused on my sweet romance stories, but I hope to write women’s fiction in the future.
