A Dish Best Served Hot

Highly recommended for fans of contemporary romances with strong social justice and family themes. This second “Vega Family Love Stories” book (following A Proposal They Can’t Refuse) works well as a stand-alone.

Savvy Sheldon Feels Good as Hell

Savvy and Spencer’s romance arc is delicious and steamy, but does share page time with the large cast of Savvy’s friends and family as they too find love and purpose. A promising debut perfect for fans of Farrah Rochon’s The Boyfriend Project.

Pug Actually

There’s no big reveal, and (predictably) the right boy gets the girl and the villain is vanquished, but this amusing little novel is still a rollicking good time that will tickle readers’ funny bones with some lovely, laugh-out-loud moments. A word of caution: Reading this in public may cause uncontrollable laughter and create a scene.

The House Guests

Fans of suspenseful domestic drama will love Richards’s (A Family of Strangers) tale of secrets, lies, and the ties that bind people.

Just Get Home

A natural disaster is a terrifying backdrop for this briskly paced yet emotional novel, and readers will be hard-pressed to put the book down before reaching its satisfying ending. This title will appeal to readers who enjoyed The River at Night, by Erica Ferencik, or One by One, by Ruth Ware.

It’s Been a Pleasure, Noni Blake

Christian’s sophomore novel (but her debut adult novel--Beautiful Mess was her debut YA novel) is an inspirational chick lit/romantic comedy that should appeal to readers who like stories about self-discovery and self-esteem, friendships, and romantic and sexual entanglements. However, it is definitely not for readers who don’t care for explicit sexual scenes.


We Could Be Heroes

Chen’s (A Beginning at the End) writing wraps hard topics with heartfelt and humorous prose, creating a delightful novel of the steps and missteps of power, friendship, and trust.

Return to Virgin River

This heartwarming tale of friendship and romance is the perfect addition to this well-loved series made newly popular by its recent adaptation on Netflix. Fans of sweet love stories will enjoy this tale of overcoming overwhelming grief to find hope in the most unexpected of places.

Love Sold Separately

Meister (Dorothy Parker Drank Here) presents a breezy, fast-paced contemporary with elements of suspense and mystery. While Dana is the only well-developed character, the array of secondary characters—even her love interests—remain one-dimensional. Readers looking for a light beach read will enjoy the engaging writing and compelling plot.
