Wildfire by Hannah Grace
The second instalment of the Maple Hills novels is sure to warm your soul and pull at your heartstrings!
Hannah Grace takes a step away from Icebreaker and tells the story of Russ Callaghan and Aurora Roberts – two summer camp councillors who are forbidden to fraternise. There’s just one problem … they once shared a passionate night and must now either peacefully co-exist or let the fire that sparked that night run rampant.
And, if you haven’t read Icebreaker yet, add it to your list too! You won’t regret it.
Not in Love by Ali Hazelwood
Calling all fans of ‘STEMinst’ romance, Ali Hazelwood has another book coming your way this June. This time, we’ll follow Rue Siebert, a biotech engineer, who’s happy with her life, and Eli Killgore, the man who’s about to disrupt her life.
Rue works at Kline, one of the most promising start-ups in the field of food science. And it just so happens to be the company that Eli and his partners most desperately want to acquire. But Eli wants Rue, too – the woman who’s completely off-limits.
Cue a forbidden affair with no strings attached and a built-in deadline!
It’s Complicated by Camilla Isley
Did someone say they need a sweet romantic comedy with a ‘friends to lovers’ twist, and fake dating trope? It’s Complicated is coming right up!
Lori needs a date for a wedding. But not just any wedding. The wedding of her best friend and the love of her life, Aiden.
In a desperate attempt to not spend what will surely be the worst day of her life alone, she asks Jace, the best man, to pretend that their friendship is something more. But Jace suddenly shows Lori a side that she’s never seen, throwing her heart into a tailspin.
Funny Story by Emily Henry
Do you know what’s worse than finding out your fiancé isn’t in love with you? Not having this book on your reading list.
Daphne knows what it’s like to suddenly have the love of her life confess his true feelings for someone else. After following her fiancé, Peter, to his hometown, he realises he’s actually in love with his childhood best friend, Petra.
This is how her story starts, stranded in a town she doesn’t know, without friends or family but with a dream job as a children’s librarian (that barely pays the bills), and proposing to be roommates with the only person who could possibly understand her predicament: Petra’s ex, Miles Nowak.
Funny Story is expected to hit shelves on 23 April 2024.
Daydream by Hannah Grace
Once you’ve finished Icebreaker and Wildfire by Hannah Grace, you’ll be itching to get right back into the Maple Hills world. Luckily, on 4 June, you’ll get to, with Daydream. The third instalment follows perhaps one of the most beloved characters, Henry Turner.
We’ll get to experience his new role as ice hockey captain – a gig he didn’t want but absolutely cannot fail. With the added responsibilities, Henry knows he’ll need to work extra hard to survive his junior year.
Enter Halle Jacobs, an aspiring author and fellow junior who’s too busy for romance and experiencing life. She knows that the key to beating her writer’s block is new experiences, and Henry promises to be the one to give them to her.
Their biggest rule? Don’t fall in love.
