The Queen of Minor Disasters by Antonietta Mariottini


The story opens with Stella daydreaming at work. She is a hostess at one of her parents two restaurants. Stella is in a relationship with Drew and they have been together for three years. Drew was supposed to come to the restaurant that night. When he doesn’t show up, she calls him. He is stuck at work.

Stella doesn’t like being away from him so she decides to go to his apartment in the city a few days later. She lets herself in and looks around. She spots a Tiffany’s engagement ring catalog under a pile of mail and is instantly excited. She’s been waiting for this day for a while.

She makes his favorite pasta for dinner. He arrives home from work and they sit down to dinner. Drew breaks the news to her that she isn’t right for him. She grabs her things and leaves. Instead of going back home, she goes to her friends house and spends the night there.

The next day, along with her soon to be sister-in-law Gina, they devise a plan to get him back. Stella eventually strays from the plan and ruins everything. Her parents try to set her up with a guy from her childhood but she rebels at every turn.

The night before her twenty-eighth birthday, the restaurant is short staffed. She is working as a waitress while her mother acts as the hostess. Roberto and his family are sat in her section. Roberto is nice to her and flirting while she is a tad rude to him. The next morning, after her morning run, she runs into Roberto and agrees to go on a date with him.

Does she back out? Does she go? What happens between them? What happens in this story that I’ve left out. Get your copy on Kindle to find out.
