The Fizgig by Jill Cox Vogt

Poet Daisy Young believes that when life hands you lemons, eat chocolate and get on with it, but no amount of Whitman Samplers gets her mind off her drowned fiancé – until she flees from Nashville to a small town in East Tennessee’s mountains and becomes best friends with Luke Strann.

The last thing she’s looking for is love, and certainly not with Luke, who’s as opposite from Brody as Fleetwood Mac is from Prince. Still, he’s a poet, and she’s been itching to know someone who’ll read her poetry. When their physical attraction can’t be denied, their relationship transforms into a “no promises, no demands” love affair.

It’s easy for Daisy to accept. After all, memories of her fiancé rule her heart, and according to Luke’s Elvis-loving, Harley-riding friend, Raleigh, Luke has a back door woman named Allison. But the more fun she has with Luke—hiking mountains, shooting fireworks, meeting a mysterious, prophetic woman in a red satin dress—the more frustrated she is with their uncertain future.

She calls it quits. Her year-long lease is up. Should she give up hope and return to her family in Nashville?

Then a near-fatal accident brings about the truth of Luke’s attraction to Allison, and Daisy must make the decision of her life.

Set in a time when Tina Turner rocks the radio and telephones are plugged into a wall, THE FIZGIG chronicles the adventures, the defeats, and the triumphs of Daisy and Luke, with doses of hilarity and quirky characters mixed within.

Lila Blue by Annie Katz

What would happen if you took a bright, neglected girl out of a marginal home and placed her in the perfect environment for healing and growth? Lila Blue, a heartwarming coming of age novel set on the Oregon Coast in the summer of 1985, answers that question. Cassandra feels lost when mother puts her on a Greyhound bus with nothing but a business card of a relative she’s never met. Imagine her surprise when she ends up perched on the edge of a magnificent beach with Lila Blue, a wise grandmother who welcomes her with open arms. During the next several weeks, Cassandra falls in love with her grandmother and with Rainbow Village, a caring community of artisans and eccentrics, and she envisions a rich, passionate life for herself in this new home. Now that Cassandra knows her true heart’s desire though, she fears her self-indulgent mother will take her back on a whim. If you love believable characters who grow through adversity to become independent, creative individuals, you’ll love Lila Blue.

Compromising Positions by Mary Whitney

We weren’t supposed to be friends. We weren’t even supposed to like each other.

I’m Michael Grath. I’ll admit I was elected to Congress on my Republican family history. I was out to make a name for myself, until I met Jessie Clark, a spitfire Democrat.

She’d be my nemesis, if I could just stop thinking about her. We’ve got nothing and everything in common, but our past divides us. She made one choice; I made another, and we can’t reconcile the two because it’s an issue that divides America as well.

So like I said, we weren’t supposed to be friends, we weren’t even supposed to like each other, and we certainly weren’t supposed to fall in love.
