From the bestselling author of The Girls of Mischief Bay and The Friends We Keep comes a twisty tale of family dynamics that explores what can go terribly, hysterically wrong when the line between friendship and family blurs... Zoe Saldivar is more than just single--she's ALONE. She recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend, she works from home and her best friend Jen is so obsessed with her baby that she has practically abandoned their friendship. The day Zoe accidentally traps herself in her attic with her hungry-looking cat, she realizes that it's up to her to stop living in isolation.Her seemingly empty life takes a sudden turn for the complicated--her first new friend is Jen's widowed mom, Pam. The only guy to give her butterflies in a very long time is Jen's brother. And meanwhile, Pam is being very deliberately seduced by Zoe's own smooth-as-tequila father. Pam's flustered, Jen's annoyed and Zoe is beginning to think "alone" doesn't sound so bad, after all. Friendship isn't just one thing--it's a million little things, and no one writes them with more heart and humor than book club sensation Susan Mallery

Romance: Loving and learning
Three women discover new versions of themselves as well as romance in A Million Little Things, part of Susan Mallery’s Mischief Bay series. Zoe Saldivar is dissatisfied with her single life. She needs a big change, but what to do? Her best friend, young mother Jen Beldon, offers no help. Jen is obsessed with her toddler, neglecting her health and her husband, and although she knows her marriage is suffering, she feels powerless to make adjustments. Her own mother, widow Pam Eiland, tries to gently point out the problem, but that causes trouble between mother and daughter. Meanwhile, new romantic possibilities arise for both Pam and Zoe. Complications come fast on the heels of kisses, however, and soon all three women are forced to re-examine who they are and what they want. Readers will find new friends in these sympathetic heroines and root for them to solve their very believable problems.
Both adventure and romance sizzle in Cherry Adair’s Stormchaser. With pride, family and fortune on the line, Jonah Cutter hires acclaimed marine archaeologist Dr. Calista West for his latest underwater salvage project. There’s treasure off the coast of Greece—perhaps a bounty beyond measure if Jonah’s suspicions are true—and he needs the beautiful doctor to help him prove it. Calista comes aboard his ship with goals of her own, however. She’s there to aid her brother-in-law in getting revenge on the Cutters by scooping this prize from their hands. But she couldn’t have foreseen her wild attraction to handsome Jonah, and the fire between them is mutual. As they explore the mysteries of the Mediterranean Sea, their passion explodes. When a menace threatens their lives, can the two find a way to save themselves and find a way to forever? Adair’s latest is filled with fast-paced, imaginative fun.
TOP PICK IN ROMANCE
In Meredith Duran’s A Lady’s Code of Misconduct, political intrigue drives a captivating historical romance. Crispin Burke, a member of Parliament, awakens after a devastating head injury to find he’s lost five years of his memory and gained a wife—a rich wife named Jane. But as he struggles to learn about this stranger and their relationship, he discovers that during those lost years he was ruthless and manipulative, supporting laws and colleagues for financial gain and power, not for good. News about his marriage is no better—Jane tells him they married for convenience and not for love. None of this sits well with Crispin, and as he traces back through his life, he comes to a better understanding of his family and of his failings. In doing so, he falls for his lovely wife, whom he knows will prove a perfect partner in life and love—if they can survive the danger that stalks them. This Regency romance, part of the Rules for the Reckless series, is a smart love story, peopled with complex and absorbing characters.
