A little light can guide you home... New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nan Rossiter’s touching new novel reunites four sisters at their childhood vacation spot on Cape Cod—where they uncover the truth about a past tragedy to find their future as a family... The close-knit Quinn siblings enjoyed the kind of idyllic childhood that seems made for greeting cards, spending each summer at Whit’s End, the family’s home on Cape Cod. Then comes the summer of 1964, warm and lush after a rainy spring—perfect firefly weather. Sisters Birdie, Remy, Sailor, Piper, and their brother, Easton, delight in catching the insects in mason jars to make blinking lanterns. Until, one terrible night, tragedy strikes. Decades later, the sisters have carved out separate lives on the Cape. Through love and heartbreak, health issues, raising children, and caring for their aging parents, they have supported each other, rarely mentioning their deep childhood loss. But one evening, as they sit together at Whit’s End to watch the sun set, the gathering fireflies elicit memories of that long-ago night, and a tumult of regrets, guilt, and secrets tumble out. Poignant yet hopeful, Firefly Summer is an uplifting story of the resilience of sisterhood and the bright glimpses of joy and solace that, like fireflies after rain, can follow even the deepest heartaches. Praise for the novels of Nan Rossiter “Nan Rossiter is at the peak of her storytelling abilities with Under a Summer Sky, which is told with the kind of compassion, grace, and wisdom that is nearly unrivaled in contemporary fiction.”—Examiner.com “Eloquent and surprising...I love this story of faith, love, and the lasting bonds of family.”—Ann Leary, author of Outtakes from a Marriage on The Gin & Chowder Club “A gripping story of three sisters, of love lost and found and a family’s journey from grief to triumph. A sure winner.”—Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author, on More Than You Know

*** Formerly published in 2016 by St. Martin’s Press under the title SHE’S GOT A WAY. This book has been extensively revised from the original. *** “A new, witty voice in contemporary romance. Maggie McGinnis is gonna make you smile.”―Christie Craig, New York Times bestselling author USA TODAY® Bestselling author Maggie McGinnis welcomes us back to Echo Lake, Vermont for an opposites-attract story between two people who think they couldn’t be more different … until a team of scheming teenagers set out to prove them wrong. Gabriela O’Brien is supposed to be on a plane to a long-awaited Barbados vacation, where she’d planned to sip margaritas on a cushioned chaise by the sea for a blissful, breezy two weeks, using sea air and alcohol to recover from a long year of playing substitute parent and full-time counselor to her Briarwood Academy students. Instead, she’s navigating a van full of miscreant teenagers to a desolate summer camp on the shores of Echo Lake, Vermont, where they’ve been sentenced to live for a month because the teens stole the school van and hightailed it out of town a week ago, and the headmaster decided it was Gabriela’s fault. When Luke Magellan watches the BMW van pull into the deserted parking lot of Camp Echo, he braces himself to face a nightmare. Up until this year, Camp Echo’s been home to hundreds of troubled boys every summer, in programs designed to turn them around and prove the world gives a damn how they turn out. But now rich-as-sin Briarwood Academy has bought the property, and given the list of updates they want made, it’s clear they’re going to turn it into yet another lakeside paradise for the rich and famous. Last summer, he was directing lives. This year, he’s a camp handyman putting in a performance stage and showers. And now he’s dealing with a van full of surprise guests who will no doubt be expecting better accommodations than the tents and outhouse he has to offer. Oh, this is going to be fun.

Welcome to Sugar Pine, Texas, where there is one red light, one taxi cab, and one grieving mama left wondering why the Lord didn't grab hold of her prodigal son before it was too late. Grieving artist Sessa Chambers is left with a grandchild to raise and a decision to make: could she accept a dream job restoring carousel horses for the Smithsonian, manage a ranch, and take care of her granddaughter? With the ladies of the Pies, Books & Jesus Book Club in her corner, she accepts the job and awaits the first shipment of horses. Then one day a handsome cowboy arrives on her doorstep to complicate everything. Former rodeo star turned Houston surgeon Trey Brown is haunted by the night he killed a man-a teenager, really-with the same hands he uses to hold a scalpel. Forgiveness is his only hope, so he seeks out his victim's only living relative, his mother. Ranch owner Sessa Chambers is not at all what he expects. Her presence is more jolting than any eight-second bronco ride from his former rodeo days, and the only thing he wants to do is get to know her better. She's mistaken him for the hired help, and he's fine with that. Until he finds a way to admit he killed her son, Trey will work off the guilt that is plaguing him. In tiny Sugar Pine, Texas, everyone knows everyone else's business and most of them know the others' pie recipes as well. Thus, the ladies of the Pies, Books & Jesus Book Club are determined to figure out exactly who Sessa's handsome cowboy is and what he wants with their Sessa. Once they do, can Trey and Sessa's growing love for one another survive the truth?

The warmth of the summer touches three acclaimed novels full of romance, intrigue, and heart—from beloved authors Anne Tyler, Monica McInerney, and Maeve Binchy. This amazing eBook collection is the perfect companion, whether you’re spending the day at the beach or a quiet evening in your own backyard. BREATHING LESSONS Anne Tyler Winner of the Pulitzer Prize “A wonderful novel, glowing with the insight and compassion of an artist’s touch.”—The Boston Globe Maggie and Ira Moran have been married for twenty-eight years—and it shows: in their quarrels, in their routines, in their ability to tolerate with affection each other’s eccentricities. Maggie is a kooky, lovable optimist who wants nothing more than to fix her son’s broken marriage, while Ira is infuriatingly practical. When what begins as a day trip to a funeral becomes an adventure in the unexpected, Maggie and Ira must navigate the riotous twists and turns. Together they rediscover the magic of the road called life and the joy of having somebody to share the ride with, bumps and all. THE ALPHABET SISTERS Monica McInerney “Charm, laughter, and tears . . . a delightful story that shows how quarrels can be solved with love and loyalty.”—Woman’s Day As girls growing up in the Clare Valley, Australia, Anna, Bett, and Carrie Quinlan were childhood singing stars known as the Alphabet Sisters. As adults, though, the women haven’t spoken in years—ever since Bett’s fiancé deserted her to marry the younger Carrie. But now their flamboyant grandmother Lola is turning eighty, and she is determined to reunite the girls for a blowout bash. And no one ever says no to Lola. The women’s short visit becomes a much longer commitment when an unexpected turn of events changes everything in ways none of them could ever have imagined. FIREFLY SUMMER Maeve Binchy “The best Binchy yet.”—The New York Times Book Review Kate Ryan and her husband, John, have a rollicking pub in the Irish village of Mountfern, four lovely children, and such wonderful dreams. Then American millionaire Patrick O’Neill comes to town to build a grand hotel, with its promise of wealth and change. As love and hate vie for a town’s quiet heart, loyalties are challenged, jealousies ignited, and old traditions begin to crumble away.

“The perfect escapist summer read… I completely devoured this book in just one sitting… I adored this book from start to finish. It has been the perfect escape.” Book Love, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Nothing beats falling in love under the sun, with the sand beneath your feet. This gorgeous, feel-good, and heartwarming summer escape from the bestselling author of The Summer House is perfect for fans of Mary Alice Monroe, Susan Mallery and Nancy Thayer. For Sydney Flynn, her treasured family home, Starlight Cottage, is her sanctuary. The house on the white sands of Firefly Beach, surrounded by glittering turquoise waters, is the perfect place for her fresh start. That’s until her knees almost buckle at the sight of Nate Henderson. As teenagers, Sydney and Nate whispered sweet nothings and promised “forever” to each other. Sydney thought they were perfect. She never imagined that her childhood sweetheart was going to end things out of the blue and with no explanation, ruthlessly driving away from her and never looking back. She has spent the last decade piecing herself back together, and trying to figure out exactly what went wrong. And now the man who ripped apart her heart is back. The down-to-earth son of a fisherman she used to know, forever in beach t-shirts and flip flops, is well and truly gone – in his place is a successful songwriter in a swanky designer suit who’s totally out of place in the small town she calls home. All of a sudden, Nate wants to make it up to Sydney, yet how can she find it in her heart to forgive him? But when a new development threatens her beloved Starlight Cottage, Sydney needs all the help she can get, and her plan of avoiding Nate is suddenly impossible. Can they overcome their past to save Firefly Beach and the house that holds so many memories for them? Or will the town they adore, and the love they had for one another, be lost forever?
