Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse
Sophia has seven days
left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States. Seven days to say
good-bye to the electric city, her wild best friend, and the boy she’s
harbored a semi-secret crush on for years. Seven perfect days…until
Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything.
and Sophia have a history of heartbreak, and the last thing Sophia
wants is for him to steal her leaving thunder with his stupid arriving
thunder. Yet as the week counts down, the relationships she thought were
stable begin to explode around her. And Jamie is the one who helps her
pick up the pieces. Sophia is forced to admit she may have misjudged
Jamie, but can their seven short days of Tokyo adventures end in
anything but good-bye?

All I ever wanted by Lucy Dillon
Nancy is four, nearly
five. She talks all the time: in the car, on the way to nursery, to her
extrovert older brother, to her collection of bears. But then, one
February morning, everything changes. Nancy's mum and dad split up. Her
father Patrick moves away from their Bristol home to Newcastle. And
Nancy stops talking.
Eva is forty-four, nearly forty-five. She didn't
expect to be the third wife of a much-loved household name, but eight
years ago, she and semi-retired bad boy Michael Quinn fell in love. Eva
knew marrying a much older man meant compromises, but it was the love of
a lifetime for them both - until Mickey dies suddenly, leaving Eva
alone with his gossipy diaries, their two pugs, and a distressing voice
in the back of her mind, wondering if perhaps she's sacrificed more than
she meant to.

coasts separate them until she moves in with her dad, who lives in the
same California surfing town as her online crush.

moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist
trap, the oddball Cavern Palace Museum. Or that she’s being tormented
daily by Porter Roth, a smart-alecky yet irritatingly hot museum
security guard. But when Porter and Bailey are locked in the museum
overnight, Bailey is forced to choose whether she should cling to a
dreamy fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with
Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she
realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is
