The book cover is also pictured on one side of the card.
Meet Cute by Helena Hunting ($10.39) This book had me at its title, Meet Cute. In films and television series, it refers to the first encounter between the main characters, which eventually leads to a romantic relationship. It’s the perfect title for this story about a heartthrob and his fangirl! It’s filled with just the right amount of cute and funny moments, plus some emotional and heartwarming dialogue. Anyone who is into romcoms would surely like this one! I certainly did!
The New York Times bestselling author of Pucked and The Good Luck Charm delivers a Hollywood happily-ever-after where a famous heartthrob falls for his ultimate fangirl.“As charming as its title, but it’s also so much more… Fans of Jasmine Guillory’s The Wedding Date and Helen Hoang’s The Kiss Quotient will love Meet Cute.” —The Washington Independent Review of BooksKailyn Flowers was always calm, rational, and controlled–until she ended up sprawled all over Daxton Hughes, the former actor she totally crushed on as a teenager. Then she did the unthinkable: She became a mortifying fangirl in five seconds flat, which may or may not have included professing her undying love. And oddly, he didn’t run away. In fact, their meet cute led to a friendship she never saw coming. Of course, she never saw his betrayal coming, either…Now Dax needs her help. As guardian to his thirteen-year-old sister, he’s in way over his head. And though Kailyn hasn’t forgiven Dax, she isn’t heartless enough to make him fend for himself, either. Soon their friendly meetings turn into flirty dinner dates, and Kailyn can feel their chemistry is as explosive as ever. But how can she possibly let down her guard again to a guy who has heartbreak written all over him?

The Refuge by Ann H. Gabhart ($29.99) Set in the early 1850s, this historical fiction teaches us a lot of things about love, family, hardships, and new beginnings.
