Welcome to my love stories for hopeful romantics!

I’m Jacquelyn Middleton, award-winning author of contemporary fiction and romance, and the 2019 recipient of the BEST CANADIAN AUTHOR award from the Toronto Romance Writers. Thank you so much for stopping by.

My fifth novel, THE CERTAINTY OF CHANCE, my heartwarming Christmas romance set in London was chosen as one of “the best holiday romances of 2021” by Entertainment Weekly magazine! It also earned starred industry reviews from Kirkus Reviews and BlueInk Reviews, and won two awards: the Outstanding Holiday Fiction prize at the Independent Author Network’s 2022 Book of the Year Awards and Best Romance at the 2022 Indie Reader Discovery Awards.

THE CERTAINTY OF CHANCE is a standalone, contemporary romance, which takes place in the same world as my previous four books (however, you don’t have to read them first to know what’s going on—but you might recognize a few cameos if you did). It’s romantic, very Christmassy, and a little bit heartbreaking, and if you love happily ever afters, then THE CERTAINTY OF CHANCE is the book for you. And if you haven’t fallen for London yet, this book might well do the trick. However, it should be said that, like my other novels, The Certainty of Chance is not a rom-com.
