Detailed book overview
Natalie's final summer in her tiny Kentucky hometown begins well, until she starts seeing strange things.
For instance, her front door is red rather than green and a preschool has replaced the garden store.
When her entire town however mysteriously vanishes for hours, Nat is certain that something isn't right.
But that’s not all. Nat also gets mysterious visits from the ghost-like being she calls "Grandmother" who warns her that she only has three months to save him.
Under the floodlight of her high school football field, Nat crosses paths with a lovely boy named Beau the following night.
And it’s as though nothing else exists, other than the two.
The O'Donnells and the Angerts have mythic legacies in Five Fingers, Michigan.
Although both families remain silent about what drove a century-old wedge between them, word is that it began with a cherry tree.
For eighteen-year-old Jack “June” O’Donnell, staying away from Angerts is her number one priority, until Saul Angert, the son of the sworn enemy to June’s late father, returns to town after vanishing for three years.
And soon enough, June discovers that she is drawn to a boy she should naturally despise.
When the magic, ghosts, and coywolves of Five Fingers devise a plot to reveal the real reason why the two families began feuding, June finds herself questioning whether it’s finally time to let go.
Nearly everyone in the tiny town of Splendor, Ohio, was affected by the explosion at the local steel mill.
Those who weren’t casualties at least knew someone who was, as is the case for seventeen-year-old Franny, whose brother is still in a coma five years after the explosion.
Gripped by tragedy, Franny found refuge in a band of friends known as The Ordinary, who spend their free time looking into local ghost stories and legends, then uploading the content for their small YouTube community.
Though foolish, it’s still a fun idea that helps them momentarily forget the grief around them.
But what if they end up finding exactly what they’ve been looking for?
Although Winona seems to come from a perfect home, her life is one of agony, as her seemingly perfect celebrity father not only leaves the pantry door locked, but also leaves her with bruises nobody can see.
Fed up by her mother’s demanding needs and her drug-dealing brother, Lucille wonders whether this life could ever offer her more.
Upon recognizing that they don’t have to wait until graduation to begin their new lives, Winona and Lucille devise a plan to abandon their sleepy Michigan town and head to Chicago.
And all they need is three grand and a stolen vehicle…
January Andrews is a bestselling romance writer while Augustus Everett is a celebrated literary fiction author who doesn’t believe in true love.
Although they seem as different as can be, the two have a lot more in common than they could possible think.
Both of them are not only terribly broke, but have also hit a brick wall with their writing.
However determined to write a bestselling book before the end of summer, the two agree to swap genres and see who’ll beat the other at getting published.
Two writers, one holiday, and a romcom about to happen.
Poppy and Alex. Alex and Poppy. They have nothing in common. She’s a wild child; he wears khakis. She has insatiable wanderlust; he prefers to stay home with a book. And somehow, ever since a fateful car share home from college many years ago, they are the very best of friends.
For most of the year they live far apart—she’s in New York City, and he’s in their small hometown—but every summer, for a decade, they have taken one glorious week of vacation together.
Until two years ago, when they ruined everything. They haven't spoken since.
Poppy has everything she should want, but she’s stuck in a rut. When someone asks when she was last truly happy, she knows, without a doubt, it was on that ill-fated, final trip with Alex. And so, she decides to convince her best friend to take one more vacation together—lay everything on the table, make it all right. Miraculously, he agrees.
Now she has a week to fix everything. If only she can get around the one big truth that has always stood quietly in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?
Two friends. Ten summer trips. Their last chance to fall in love.
Twelve summers ago: Poppy and Alex meet. They hate each other and are pretty confident they'll never speak again.
Eleven summers ago: they're forced to share a ride home from college, and by the end of it, a friendship is formed. And a pact: every year, one vacation together.
Ten summers ago: Alex discovers his fear of flying on the way to Vancouver. Poppy holds his hand the whole way.
Seven summers ago: they get far too drunk and narrowly avoid getting matching tattoos in New Orleans.
Two summers ago: it all goes wrong.
This summer: Poppy asks Alex to join her on one last trip. A trip that will determine the rest of their lives.
One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn't see coming...
Nora Stephens' life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.
Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story.
But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.
If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.
Harriet and Wyn have been the perfect couple since they met in college—they go together like salt and pepper, honey and tea, lobster and rolls. Except, now—for reasons they’re still not discussing—they don’t.
They broke up five months ago. And still haven’t told their best friends.
Which is how they find themselves sharing a bedroom at the Maine cottage that has been their friend group’s yearly getaway for the last decade. Their annual respite from the world, where for one vibrant, blissful week they leave behind their daily lives; have copious amounts of cheese, wine, and seafood; and soak up the salty coastal air with the people who understand them most.
Only this year, Harriet and Wyn are lying through their teeth while trying not to notice how desperately they still want each other. Because the cottage is for sale and this is the last week they’ll all have together in this place. They can’t stand to break their friends’ hearts, and so they’ll play their parts.
Harriet will be the driven surgical resident who never starts a fight, and Wyn will be the laid-back charmer who never lets the cracks show. It’s a flawless plan (if you look at it from a great distance and through a pair of sunscreen-smeared sunglasses). After years of being in love, how hard can it be to fake it for one week…in front of those who know you best?
