The heart wants what the heart wants...
Fresh out of college with a psychology degree, Molly Stillman was searching for the meaning of life by taking a summer volunteer gig building houses. The meaning in Molly’s life became apparent when her path crossed Lincoln Abbott’s. With his brand-new Yale MBA in hand, Linc was Mississippi bound, ready to spend the summer rebuilding houses after a devastating hurricane. He had a plan, lots of them, actually. But after meeting Molly, he realized plans have a way of showing you who’s boss.
One look from the intelligent beauty working by his side on the house project, and Linc knew everything had changed. His long-time goal of studying at Oxford before joining his family’s finance business was abandoned in favor of helping to grow Molly’s charming family business in Vermont. Too bad Linc’s father had other ideas about how his future should unfold, and when forced to make a choice, Linc chose Molly. He chose Vermont and the Green Mountain Country Store, and he never looked back.
Until a phone call from the past forces him to confront the choices he made decades ago and the consequences of saying goodbye, including telling his ten grown children why they’ve never met his family.
As they wander down memory lane, Linc and Molly revisit the unforgettable summer that changed both their lives.
Enter for a chance to win one of 25 advance copies of Infinite Country by Patricia Engel. Rich with Bogotá urban life, steeped in Andean myth, and tense with the daily reality for the undocumented in America, Infinite Country is the story of two countries and one mixed-status family—for whom every triumph is stitched with regret and every dream pursued bears the weight of a dream deferred.
At the dawn of the new millennium, Colombia is a country devastated by half a century of violence. When Elena and Maura become parents, they leave Bogotá for the United States, where they attempt to put down roots while constantly having to look over their shoulders. As their family expands, their decision to stay beyond the expiration of their visas plunges the young family into the precariousness of undocumented status. When Mauro is deported, Elena, now tasked with caring for their three small children, makes a difficult choice that will ease her burdens but splinter the family even further.
Internationally acclaimed author Patricia Engel, herself the daughter of Colombian immigrants and a dual citizen, gives voice to Mauro and Elena, as well as their children, Karina, Nando, and Talia—each one navigating a divided existence, weighing their allegiance to the past, the future, to one another, and to themselves.

A heartening and uproariously funny novel of high hopes, bad choices, book love, and one woman’s best—and worst—intentions.
Without question, Fawn Birchill knows that her used bookstore is the heart of West Philadelphia, a cornerstone of culture for a community that, for the past twenty years, has found the quirkiness absolutely charming. When an amicable young indie bookseller invades her block, Fawn is convinced that his cushy couches, impressive selection, coffee bar, and knowledgeable staff are a neighborhood blight. Misguided yet blindly resilient, Fawn readies for battle.
But as she wages her war, Fawn is forced to reflect on a few unavoidable truths: the tribulations of online dating, a strained relationship with her family, and a devoted if not always law-abiding intern—not to mention what to do about a pen pal with whom she hasn’t been entirely honest and the litany of repairs her aging store requires.
Through emails, journal entries, combative online reviews, texts, and tweets, Fawn plans her next move. Now it’s time for her to dig deep and use every trick at her disposal if she’s to reclaim her beloved business—and her life.

Millie moved into her grandmother’s old (and haunted) Victorian house shortly after her parents announced their divorce. That meant she had an entire summer to stay up late and play video games with her favorite person in the world, her Mimi. Millie didn’t understand why Mimi would often leave in the middle of a raid and come back hours later bruised and bloody. Until one fateful night, Mimi came home with a mortal wound and confessed a family secret.
Millie comes from a long line of curanderas and is charged with keeping the balance of the universe. Mimi was supposed to train Millie’s mother, Vida, but she wasn’t interested in honing her gifts. She just assumed she’d train Millie when the time was right. Unfortunately, time for Mimi is short and the people of Sweet Bay have a supernatural predator on their hands. Millie has no choice but to take the reins.
