Can an always-tardy garlic mogul and a punctual Silicon Valley librarian fall in love?

The world needs garlic and somebody’s got to sell that garlic. Cedric Johnson is that man. But even though he’s got just about everything he can wish for, Cedric is still missing one thing in his life: someone special. Fate may be on his side, but he encounters a few distractions along the way—like almost being killed by a UPS truck. Oh, and a little case of blackmail.

Ellie Fontaine is a walking Wikipedia with clear professional goals, but when it comes to landing Mr. Right, she doesn’t know jack squat. She gives online dating a shot, but ends up with an unappetizing buffet of unibrows and losers. What’s a girl to do?

After Ellie saves Cedric’s life, serendipity takes over as they continue to run into each other. Their connection grows stronger with each meeting, even though he embodies her number one pet peeve: he’s always late. But even if they can get past their issues and misunderstandings, Ellie’s ex-boyfriend, an unscrupulous cop, will do anything to keep them apart.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Everything just flowed and felt so organic I couldn’t put it down. If you’re an adventurous reader who likes discovering authors you’ve never heard of before then pick up “Five Minutes Late” and get to know Rich Amooi’s lovable world.


I loved this book! The banter between characters (both main and supporting) was crisp and witty (with just enough irreverence thrown in) that it kept things really fun. A perfect summer (or anytime) read. What a great initial offering from first time novelist, Rich Amooi. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in his next novel.


I greatly enjoyed this book and all the characters. The author did an excellent job weaving the storyline around the title and the importance five minutes can make – quite profound. There is certainly enough excitement to keep turning the pages. I found myself speeding up as the story progressed in order to find out what happened next!!!


I have a new favorite author!!! Never read a book by this author before and reading reviews from other people I realize that it’s his first book, so let me just say congratulations and well done, you’ve written an awesome book!!!


This book will scratch that itch you have for a good reading experience, two people meet, and then meet again and it seems like fate is throwing together. The cast of characters are just as much fun as the main characters.
