If revenge is best served cold, then payback should be on the rocks.
Eight years after leaving Brighthead, Maine with a broken heart, Noah opens a wedding invitation from the man who destroyed Noah’s relationship with Elsie—and Noah’s only shot at lifelong love. Easy RSVP: NO.
Elsie’s letting her best friend use her vacation house for a wedding on the rocky beach—which would be great except Elsie hates the groom for his “little prank” that broke up her and Noah right after graduation. When Noah RSVPs that he’s not coming, Elsie’s not having it. Her ex had better get up to Maine now—and they’re going to give their prankster friend a little bit of what he’s dished out.
Or…a lot of what he’s dished out.
As Elsie and Noah plan (and pull off!) a series of hilarious stunts, the old feelings and questions flood back like a tide over the rocks. What begins as a pact to get payback turns into a week of missteps, mixed signals, and misguided attempts to deny everything that’s kept them apart for so long.

Lexi Carter was sure of two things. One, she loved her boyfriend, Shane, and two, although she planned an elaborate trip to see the Coke Zero 400, she knew nothing about cars. Nothing. After she catches Shane sneaking off with another woman, Lexi now has two choices—go on this expensive, already-paid-for trip or be out thousands of dollars. Not wanting to waste money, and figuring she can just skip the race, Lexi packs her bags and heads off to sunny Daytona, Florida, and her fabulous rented beach house.
Racecar owner and driver Max Stone has one thing on his mind—the NASCAR Championship Series at the end of the year. He has all the qualifying points needed, several wins under his belt, and was in the prime of his career. At least he was until the association found tainted gas in his race car after the last race. His crew chief isn’t talking and although he knew nothing of the gas, Max is facing a horrible scandal and one that could end his season. To hide away from the press, he flees his home to hide out in a rented beach house in Daytona while he awaits his trial.
When the pair find out that the travel agent double booked their private beach house, they must either spend their vacations together under one roof or find other accommodations. With the race coming up, however, any available rooms are lackluster at best. Can they make the most of an awkward situation? And will Max get the okay to race again before it’s too late?

What do you do when you and your twin sister are attracted to the same man?
Fight it out of course…
Or there’s always the nicer option of helping your much quieter sister catch the guy.
Identical twins, Paige and Pam, have been inseparable their whole lives. Paige is outgoing and bubbly, whereas Pam is quiet and insecure. They share everything from clothes, to shoes, to the peaches in their family’s orchard. But when it comes to men, Pam has always backed down. Unfortunately, they have the same taste as far as the male species goes as well.
But this time, Paige feels like it’s her sisterly duty to help Pam catch the guy, even if Chase Spencer is likely the most attractive man to walk the face of the planet. He’s tall, dark, and has the dreamiest blue eyes Paige has ever seen. But when she discovers how over the moon Pam is for him, she devises a plan to help her sister come out of her shell, coaching her in ways to attract a man, even if that involves pretending to be Pam when the need calls for it.
Too bad in all her attempts to help her sister, Paige has fallen even harder for Chase, and even worse, he seems to have fallen hard for her as well, thinking she’s her twin. Now she’s torn between telling Chase and Pam the truth and risk losing both of their trust forever, or keeping her secret going while hoping everything somehow works out. Yeah, not likely…
Oh, the webs we weave…

“All is fair in love and . . . the pear pie wars.”
Tori Bevan must have heard her grandmother say that phrase more times than she could count growing up on Bevan Pear Farms. Every year Grandma Bevan went for the coveted Clarksville Pear Festival Best Pear Pie award. And every year she’d lose to Ben Holden—the owner of Holden Acres, another pear farm and her enemy for over seventy years. Tori believes this year she has the blue ribbon in the bag. Only one problem stands in her way . . . Dane Holden, Ben’s grandson, waltzing back in town, much to Tori’s disliking.
Dane Holden never had an interest in his grandparent’s pear farm. He moved away a long time ago with no plans to ever go back to his small hometown. However, after a couple of poor business deals leave the young entrepreneur jobless and homeless, he has no choice but to say yes when his grandpa asks him to come home for the festival.
Just when the sparks begin to fly between Tori and Dane, Dane’s past comes back to haunt him, throwing a curveball in Tori’s plans for the festival and contest. Will the Holden’s claim another coveted blue ribbon, or will a new champion reign over this year’s festival?
