Piece of Cake (Leftovers #0.5)

Piece of Cake by Sarah Epstein

Meet Mabel, Sophie, Cate, and Darcy in this Leftovers novella

One wedding. Four strangers. An epic cake-tastrophe.

It’s the wedding reception none of them particularly wanted to attend. So, when strangers Mabel, Sophie, Cate, and Darcy are seated together on a dud table at the back of the venue, at least they’re a safe distance from the antics of the spoilt bride and drunken groom.

Mabel has an important task to complete. Sophie’s preoccupied with her parents’ separation. Darcy’s struggling to find a new normal without her sister. And Cate thinks nothing could be more mortifying than her late entrance. What they didn’t expect is to be working together to fix an epic cake-tastrophe.

Welcome to the Australian coastal town of Leftover Bay, where residents are navigating friendships and family, first love, and figuring out where they fit in the world.

This YA novella is a standalone story and takes place before the events of Sugarcoated (Book 1 in the Leftovers series).
