New York Times bestseller! Chosen as a best summer read by People, Redbook, Good Housekeeping, and Good Morning America! Life's a bit of a beach these days for Ginger Walsh, who finds herself single at 41 and back home living in the family FROG (Finished Room Over Garage). She's hoping for a more fulfilling life as a sea glass artist, but mostly she's babysitting her sister's kids and sharing overnights with Noah, her glassblower boyfriend with commitment issues and a dog Ginger's cat isn't too crazy about. Then a shark movie comes to town, and everyone is clamoring for a close-up. "Midlife love, laughter, sibling rivalry and self-discovery . . . Goes down as easy as it sounds."—People Magazine "A gleefully quirky coming of age story."—Redbook "Laugh out loud."—Good Housekeeping "As always, Cook's delightful way with dialogue and her deft demonstrations of how family members manage to support one another even while driving each other crazy, make reading this book a day at the beach."—Hartford Courant "A funny page-turner."—Fort Worth Star-Telegram "Perfect-for-the-beach summer novel. . . a bumpy delight."—Boston Common "In this lighthearted, breezy read, Cook displays a wry sense of humor and knows how to write realistic characters."—Library Journal "Claire Cook has an original voice, a sparkling style, and a window into family life that will make you laugh and cry.

If I had a summer, I'd want it to be the summer that two sisters sparred over everything from fertility to photography to family. And if I could follow up the wry, wacky poignancy of Must Love Dogs with any book, it would be Life's a Beach. Claire Cook is wicked good."—Jacquelyn Mitchard "Life's a Beach is a delicious coming-of-age novel—about two forty-something sisters who don't quite manage that feat until it's almost too late. I devoured this slice of family life served up in Claire Cook's inimitably warm and witty style.

Save money when you buy them all together in this delightful collection. BEST FRIENDS Lonny and Samantha became best friends in college. They’ve supported each other through broken hearts, family spats and career challenges. When Samantha’s longtime boyfriend dumps her, Lonny invites her to recuperate at his house in a seaside town—where he discovers, to his shock, that he wants a lot more than friendship from his buddy Sammy. ONE GOOD TURN When Luke met Jenny, he was lost and struggling. Her optimism, trust and love gave him the courage to face his demons and slay them. Then she vanished from his life. Seven years later, she reappears—only she’s not the same cheerful idealist he’d fallen in love with. Can he rescue her the way she’d rescued him? Can he give her the strength to slay her own demons? Can a weekend at a friend’s beach house help them to rediscover the love they once shared? CHANGE OF LIFE Lila Chapin’s husband and sons take her for granted, and when they forget her fortieth birthday, she decides withdraw a chunk of money from the bank—her birthday present to herself—and spend a month in an inn by the beach, where she thinks no one can find her. Ken Chapin loves his wife—but he has been neglecting her as he claws his way up the corporate ladder. Finally arriving on the top rung, he realizes his success is meaningless without Lila by his side. He and his sons are going to have to find her and woo her back. CRY UNCLE Pamela Hayes needs a place to hide. She flees to steamy, sandy Key West, where bartender Jonas Brenner offers her a new identity if she’ll pretend to be a prim, proper mother-figure for his wild-child niece. But the deal will work only if Pam and Joe can keep their emotions out of it—and that’s easier said than done. HOLDING HANDS Meredith Fischer’s widowed mother is starting a new romance. Her daughter is enjoying an exuberant social life. But Meredith’s marriage is comatose and barely breathing. She still loves her sexy husband, but he doesn’t see her, doesn’t hear her, and may be involved with one of the cute young students at the college where he teaches. Meredith can either pull the plug on her marriage or try to revive it with a romantic weekend at the beach. But how romantic can that getaway be when Mother Nature and a stray dog stand in her way?

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Sex on the beach has never been so much fun! Jamie K. Schmidt delivers an irresistible tale of second chances, secret identities—and a connection that’s too sweet to miss. When Amelia Parker arrives in Maui, newly single and unemployed, she’s shocked to discover the resort she booked is actually a ramshackle little beachside hotel. At least the scenery is easy on the eyes—as is the toned, laid-back snorkel instructor, “Dude.” After two weeks of sun, serenity, and mind-blowing sex, she even accepts a job as the hotel’s concierge. But what Amelia really wants is to relaunch the place completely. And that means convincing the absentee Wall Street billionaire owner, Samuel Kincaide, to take a chance on her. Samuel has a plan, too: selling off every last reminder of his former life and chilling all day, every day as his slacker altar ego . . . Dude. He loves his romps in the ocean, and under the sheets, with the feisty Amelia. If she discovers his true identity, her boundless enthusiasm and innovative business plan will seriously diminish his hammock time. But when Amelia runs into real trouble on the island, he’ll put everything on the line to keep her safe. He just hopes that the woman who’s falling for Dude will feel the same about Samuel.

Hadley Bishop is a witch. As a descendant of the first woman executed in the Salem witch trials, Hadley understands the consequences if her secret gets out. But witchcraft has come a long way since Salem, and as far Hadley is concerned the past is past. Beauty spells, designer outfits and being in with the popular social crowd is much more her thing! But when the adults from Hadley's coven suddenly vanish, it seems that the past is catching up with the present. All the evidence points to an age-old rival coven as the culprits, and Hadley must lead the young witches of her coven in a fight to avenge their elders and rescue their missing parents. At the same time Hadley is distracted by the mysterious and gorgeous Asher, who seems to have plenty of secrets of his own, not to mention a bit of magic. But whose side is he on? With everything at stake, can Hadley trust her own magic - and her heart - to guide her coven to victory?
