A Girl Like You
by Maria Geraci
Every ugly duckling is a swan in waiting.
Emma Frazier is smart and hardworking, and loves her job as a journalist for a Florida lifestyle magazine. Emma knows she's no great beauty, but she's pretty certain she has a shot with her handsome new boss, Ben Gallagher -- untiil Emma overhears a mutual acquaintance refer to her as the "ugly friend." In an effort to reclaim her battered self-esteem, Emma decides to impress Ben at work by promising an exclusive interview with NASCAR legend Trip Monroe.
Emma and Trip went to high school together and although it's been fourteen years since they've spoken, Emma is sure she can score an interview with the elusive superstar. But connecting with Trip turns out to be harder than Emma imagined. Her quest for the interview leads her back to her tiny hometown of Catfish Cove, where old secrets and a new romantic interest shoake up Emma's views on life and teach her that maybe the key to finding true love is as simple as accepting yourself for the person you were always meant to be.

But no one can explain why.
Harper Scott's older sister, June, took her own life a week before high school graduation, leaving Harper devastated. So when her divorcing parents decide to split up June's ashes, Harper steals the urn and takes off cross-country with her best friend, Laney, to the one place June always dreamed of going - California.
Enter Jake Tolan, a boy with a bad attitude, a classic-rock obsession. . . and an unknown connection to June. When he insists on joining them, Harper's just desperate enough to let him. With his alternately charming and infuriating demeanor and his belief that music can see you through anything, he might be exactly what Harper needs. Except. . . Jake's keeping a secret that has the power to turn her life upside down -- again.
