Dreaming in Black and White: A Phoebe Grant NovelDreaming in Black and White: A Phoebe Grant Novel by Laura Walker

She’s smart. She’s savvy. She’s… well, she’s working on the thighs. And with God as her witness, she’ll never let that man spoil her happy ending!

Phoebe Grant is everyone’s favorite movie geek-unbeatable at trivia, convinced that all the world’s a movie screen. She can organize a four-hankie chick-flickathon with a wave of her tall, nonfat, double mocha. And she’s a shoo-in for the job of her dreams-movie reviewer for the newpaper where she works.

Enter Alex Spencer-not only gorgeous but also a film buff, perfectly cast for a celluloid kiss and a fade to sunset. Unfortunately, Alex is the villain who sends Phoebe packing to the last place on earth she wants to be-back home to boring little Barley, California.

But wait. It couldn’t be. Dark, handsome, and annoying Alex…in Barley?

Can Phoebe protect her hometown-and her heart-and prove It’s a Wonderful Life? Or is her promising future truly Gone with the Wind?

[Hot Deal] Orchid House – Save 81%

Orchid HouseOrchid House by Cindy Coloma

Love in a foreign land. A decaying hacienda full of secrets. And a woman searching for the story of her life.

A funeral and some family business – that’s what Julia Bentley expects when she travels to the Philippines to bury her grandfather. She hopes for a brief adventure, a distraction from her most recent failed relationship and her loose-ends California life. Maybe even a chance to meet some distant relatives she’s never known.

Instead, she discovers a place where past and present, Spanish and Asian, primitive and civilized mingle in a melange as spicy and colorful as the paella her relatives dish up for special occasions. A place where some children hitch rides on cattle and others wield loaded guns. Where guerillas lurk in the jungle, and volcanoes and governments are threatened to blow. Where stories haunt her ancestral home – the grand but decaying Hacienda Esperanza, Plantation of Hope – and danger lurks behind every tree. Love and orchids bloom in places she never thought to look.

How can a land so foreign, and so troubled, fill her with a strange peace? And would staying mean risking her life… or finding it at last?
