Promo: Sunrise by the Sea by Jenny Colgan


 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Colgan returns to the setting of her beloved Little Beach Street Bakery series for a timely and heartfelt novel set in a Cornish seaside village.


Marisa Rosso can’t understand why everyone else is getting on with their lives as she still struggles to get over the death of her beloved grandfather, back home in Italy. Everyone loses grandparents, right? Why is she taking it so badly?

Retreating further and further from normal life, she moves to the end of the earth—the remote tidal island of Mount Polbearne, at the foot of Cornwall, hoping for peace and solitude, whilst carrying on her job as a registrar, dealing with births, weddings, and deaths, even as she feels life is passing her by.

Unfortunately—or fortunately?—the solitude she craves proves elusive. Between her noisy Russian piano-teaching neighbor, the bustle and community spirit of the tiny village struggling back to life after the quarantine, and the pressing need to help save the local bakery, can Marisa find her joy again at the end of the world?

Mount Polbearne, Cornish Coast - Present Day

Polly and Huckle Miller live in the small, scenic coastal town of Mount Polbearne, where Polly runs the local bakery, and Huckle sells honey. They live in a converted lighthouse with their five-year-old twins, Avery and Daisy, and Neil, the Puffin. Scraping by on the bakery income, and what Huckle can do with his honey business means working hard, and hoping to save enough money to replace the windows in the old lighthouse. They could ask for the help of Polly's best friend, Kerensa's, amazingly rich husband, Reuben, but both are loathe to do that. Life goes on, and Polly struggles to deal with Huckle's sales trips, while keeping the twins happy, and her bakery running. And then Reuben's "waifs and strays" arrive in town.

In Exeter, Marisa Rossi hides in the room she rents from Caius, a casual, and very rich and handsome friend. Since the death of her beloved grandfather, Marisa has been unable to function, even to the point where she cannot go in to work, and, instead works from her tiny room. She is getting counseling, via her laptop, and her doctor is trying to get through to her, but Marisa is frozen, and even her family can't help. It isn't until Caius rents her room out, and gets her a cottage at his Uncle Reuben's property in Cornwall that Marisa is forced to face reality. She arranges to continue working from home, and heads to Mount Polbearne. 

Marisa arrives in town, terrified of the crowds of tourists milling around, and finds the little bakery where she must retrieve the key to her cottage. The kind, but harried baker, Polly, notices right away that Marisa is having a panic attack, especially after a real live puffin flutters into the room, closely followed by two children, and then a massive man. It's no wonder Marisa can't function! Polly calms everyone down, realizing that Marisa and the big man are the new tenants of Reuben's chalets. 

Still in a funk, Marisa settles into the neat little cottage, sets up her work station, and makes plans to have her groceries delivered, and plans to avoid any people. That is until she realizes that the walls are very thin between the cottages, and that the big man next door is the new piano teacher for the local school. The "noise" is never-ending, even during the night, so her insomnia gets no help, nor does her fear of confrontation. 

What ensues in SUNRISE BY THE SEA is the struggle of a young woman who has lost connection to the real world. Marisa knows she must help herself, and her new therapist works hard to encourage even the smallest step into reality. Alexei, her neighbor, is confused by her anger at his music. Things start to change when Marisa begins Skyping her grandmother in Italy. But, at first, Marisa doesn't realize it. 

SUNRISE BY THE SEA is such a great story of human struggles in so many areas. Polly and Huckle work hard to take care of their little family and home. Marisa has many mountains to climb, and Alexei has his own personal tribulations. In the meantime, there is plenty of humor as Neil, the puffin, and the twins manage to get into all kinds of scrapes. Even the interplay between Marisa and Alexei will bring smiles.  

Don't miss the latest of Jenny Colgan's Little Beach Street Bakery books.

Who says what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?

Callie

Derek Nichols is the first guy I can see myself sticking with for more than one night. He’s nice, easy to talk to, and excellent in bed.

There’s just one problem. He breaks my one rule of relationships: no baseball players.

Only after spending a passionate night together, I’m considering breaking that cardinal rule for one more chance with him.

Derek

Callie Jacobs is the full package when it comes to the women I like. Funny, charismatic, gorgeous, and the list goes on.

After one night together, I know I want more and I have no problem going after what I want. But Callie doesn’t feel the same. She’s happy to call it done.

Then we end up in Vegas with friends and things get a little heated.

We wake up married with no memory of the event, just matching rings as a reminder of our vows to each other.

I’m all in. I’m ready to give this a shot. But Callie is running scared, even though she’s admitted she wants me too.

Each time I see her, I want to hold her close. Each time she pushes me away, I want to reel her back in.

We have to decide if this is what we want or if we’ll just become another Vegas statistic.

The Fastball is the second book in A.M. Williams Boys of Summer baseball romance series. It’s a secret Vegas wedding romance with a man who knows what he wants and a woman who fights her attraction.

If you love men in tight pants and the sassy women they fall for, this series is for you.

This book was previously published as Dirty Pitch. It has been updated with new content and re-edited.

Excerpt

Copyright 2021 A.M. Williams

I froze when Derek started moving. I turned around slowly, watching as he sat up and rubbed his eyes. Maybe if I didn’t move, he wouldn’t see me. 

I wasn’t that lucky as his gaze moved to me.

“How much did I drink last night?” he asked, blinking blearily at me.

“Enough.” My voice was flat and he narrowed his eyes at me.

He stretched. “Why are you in here?”

I cocked a brow and waited. I saw the moment he realized he was wearing a ring on his left hand.He was running his hands through his hair and paused before bringing his hand in front of his face. His eyes widened and met mine. “Is this what I think it is?”

I couldn’t say anything, only nodded, and I held up my hand, wiggling my fingers.

Derek swallowed noticeably, looking from his hand to me and back again. “What the fuck?”

“What the fuck is right,” I returned.

Silence stretched between us. I shifted my weight and realized I needed to get going. I had to pee, wanted a shower, and to crawl back into bed.

Maybe if I went to sleep, I’d wake up only to realize this was a really bizarre dream and that I wasn’t actually married to Derek?

He opened his mouth to say something, but I didn’t care to hear his thoughts. There was too much going on to try to talk this out right then. I slipped my shoes on and started toward the door, snagging my clutch from the bench as I went by.

“Callie! Where are you going?” Derek called out from behind me.

“To my room,” I called over my shoulder. I didn’t wait to hear a response, if he had one. I had to be gone. I couldn’t stay in that room one more moment.

I knew Derek had questions—I had some, too—but I seriously needed a little bit of time to myself to try to remember last night and figure out what I was going to do.
Though, I guessed it should be us figuring out what we were going to do.

I rubbed a hand over my face as Derek’s hotel room door banged shut behind me.

This absolutely couldn’t be happening. I did not just become a statistic and have a quickie wedding in Vegas where me and my groom were so drunk, we didn’t remember it happening. That didn’t happen. Right?
