Brenna Spector has a perfect memory, easily remembering every detail of her adult life. But her childhood is another story. The years before her sister Clea disappeared are fuzzy at best. When Brenna takes the case of missing webcam performer Lula Belle, she knows it’s somehow tied to her sister. Now, Brenna is determined to find the missing woman and uncover the truth about her family—no matter the cost.
Lily Azerov arrives in post-war Montreal, marries Nathan Kramer and soon a baby girl follows. But Lily is not who she claims to be, and when she disappears, all that remains is a diary and an uncut diamond. It’s up to Lily’s abandoned daughter to figure out what happened to her mother, a woman she never really knew. From war-torn Europe to Montreal, Richler promises to deliver a beautiful story of family bonds and betrayals.
This enchanting tale tells the story of Morgana, an unusual girl living in 19th century Wales. She hasn’t spoken since she was a child and she seems to possess magical abilities. To find a suitor, the best choice is someone who knows nothing of the rumors that swirl around her. Enter Cai Jenkins, a widower from the far hills. Surprisingly, Morgana thrives in her new home—until her strangeness begins to make the townspeople wary. Can Morgana learn to harness her power before she loses everything she has come to love?
Unemployed Samantha Novak is thrilled when she’s asked to write an expose on the reality TV dating show The Love Dog for a tabloid magazine. Now she’s the handler to Apollo, the show’s star, a darling golden retriever who genuinely wants to help couples fall in love, and falling herself for Mason, the show’s producer. Samantha knows she must reveal The Love Dog’s secrets but will she really be able to choose career over love?
Lissy Ryder was a star in high school—popular, beloved, feared. Fast forward 20 years and Lissy can’t understand what went wrong. She’s been fired from her job, dumped by her husband, and forced out of her house. Starting over at 37, Lissy is back living with her parents and struggling to kick-start a new business. Maybe her present is so bad because of who she was in the past. But she can’t really change that now…could she?
