By Susan Mallery. 2021
Welcome to Wishing Tree, where the magic of Christmas in July will bring you home in this heartwarming story by…#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery. Some heartbreaks hit harder than others. For Shaye Harper, the last one was so bad she swore off men for good. Wishing Tree, Washington, was supposed to be a pit stop on the road to a fresh start, but Shaye is swiftly drawn in by the quirky small town&’s celebrations—and a handsome stranger she can&’t resist. After deployments around the world, army vet Lawson Easley knows there&’s no place better than his hometown. And he&’s determined to stay right here, forever. Too bad the first woman who feels like &“the one&” is just passing through. The more time he spends with Shaye, the more he knows that she&’s the piece his heart&’s been missing. Swept up by the joyful summer festivities and Lawson&’s obvious affection, Shaye starts to feel she belongs. Here, with him. She never meant to end up in Wishing Tree. Then again, she never meant to fall in love…
The Cornish beach house creaked in the salty sea wind and, from the weathered wooden porch, Mara watched a lone…magpie circle above. It was silly to think that her mother's spirit was still with her but Mara felt as if there was something keeping her here. A secret that needed to be told...When Mara Hughes inherits her late mother&’s tumbledown beach house overlooking the bright, sandy sweep of Magpie Cove, it couldn&’t have come at a worse time. With her marriage on the rocks and her husband threatening to take the family home, the beach house – with all the bittersweet memories it holds – might be the thing that finally sends Mara&’s world crashing down around her. She tells herself she&’ll only spend a few days there: sell it and move on to figuring out how to rebuild her life. When Mara arrives, the house is in a worse state than she feared – holes in the bedroom ceiling, birds&’ nests in the attic and the beautiful, wrap-around porch on the brink of collapse… but she loves it anyway. With all its history it feels like the last link to her late mother and, determined to do whatever it takes to keep it in the family, Mara strikes a deal with local handyman – and town heartthrob – Brian Oakley to save the crumbling cottage from ruin.But when a box of unopened old letters arrives on her new doorstep – a bequest from her mother&’s will – Mara&’s resolves to save the beach house will be tested to the limit. Because Mara&’s mother&’s perfect childhood in Magpie Cove was forever spoiled by one haunting day in July, and the letters contain a secret about her family that Mara can scarcely believe to be true… A story of secrets, family and forgiveness, this heartfelt summer read is perfect for fans of Pamela Kelley, The Hideaway and Liz Fenwick.

The Forgotten Girls: A completely heartbreaking World War 2 historical novel
By Lizzie Page. 2021
It&’s a photograph of two little girls, the camera catching the cold whiteness of their legs, the pretty lines of…their dresses, the smooth surface of the lake. I know at once it&’s my mother and Aunty Barbara, I&’ve always known it somehow. But I also know that the camera doesn&’t tell the whole story. It can&’t.London, 1943. German bombs rain down on London, but Elaine Parker knows her job transcribing letters from far-away prisoners of war is more important than her own safety. But at home, Elaine&’s life isn&’t so simple – as the main breadwinner for her struggling family, she doesn&’t have much time to consider her own future hopes and dreams. And then Elaine meets dark-haired and passionate Bobby – a wartime photographer on the dangerous front line – and her world shifts. Will Elaine be forced to choose between her family and her growing passion for Bobby? And how do you let yourself love someone with your whole heart when each moment could be their last?Present day. Even the kiss of warm sunshine and the musical call of birds at her family&’s countryside villa can&’t make Jen forget the heartbreak she&’s left behind. That is, until she begins to investigate the origins of a tattered family photograph: two sweet little girls gazing out across a sparkling bay, their eyes clear and hopeful – looking for all the world as if England hadn&’t just suffered the most terrible war imaginable. What is the story behind the picture, and could it finally be the key to mending the cracks in Jen&’s own past?A heartbreaking World War Two novel – emotional and unforgettable.

She&’s meant to be catching flights, not catching feelings… Molly and Andrew are just trying to get home to…Ireland for the holidays, when a freak snowstorm grounds their flight. Nothing romantic has ever happened between them: they&’re friends and that&’s all. But once a year, for the last ten years, Molly has spent seven hours and fifteen minutes sitting next to Andrew on the last flight before Christmas from Chicago to Dublin, drinking terrible airplane wine and catching up on each other&’s lives. In spite of all the ways the two friends are different, it&’s the holiday tradition neither of them has ever wanted to give up. Molly isn&’t that bothered by Christmas, but—in yet another way they&’re total opposites—Andrew is a full-on fanatic for the festive season and she knows how much getting back to Ireland means to him. So, instead of doing the sane thing and just celebrating the holidays together in America, she does the stupid thing. The irrational thing. She vows to get him home. And in time for his mam&’s famous Christmas dinner. The clock is ticking. But Molly always has a plan. And—as long as the highly-specific combination of taxis, planes, boats, and trains all run on time—it can&’t possibly go wrong. What she doesn&’t know is that, as the snow falls over the city and over the heads of two friends who are sure they&’re not meant to be together, the universe might just have a plan of its own… A totally gorgeous and escapist friends-to-lovers festive romance with a swoon-worthy hero. Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Mhairi McFarlane, and Christina Lauren. Readers are head over heels for Holiday Romance: &“SOUND THE ALARM!!! IT'S A BANGER ALERT!!!… THE CUTEST AND FUNNIEST ROMCOM I&’VE EVER READ!!!... I literally laughed out loud multiple times… The chemistry? Even Marie Curie couldn't handle it… ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS FOR THIS BOOK TO GET THE RECOGNITION IT DESERVES!!!!!!&” NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ &“OH MY GOODNESS!… I looooooved this so much!… I had to stop myself from devouring this story much faster!
