Cold Case Chase by Maggie K. Black
Love Inspired Suspense

Sergeant Anthony Jones never expected the most challenging fugitive he’d ever have to track down would be his childhood sweetheart, Tessa Watson. She’s accused of a cold case murder, but she claims she’s being framed for a crime she didn’t commit. Now Tessa wants Anthony’s help to clear her name. But the clock is ticking, because armed assailants will do anything to keep them from uncovering long-buried secrets.

The Bitter and Sweet of Cherry Season by Molly Fader
Graydon House

Everything Hope knows about the Orchard House is from the stories of her late mother. So when she arrives at the northern Michigan family estate late one night with a terrible secret and her ten-year-old daughter in tow, she’s not sure if she’ll be welcomed or turned away with a shotgun by the aunt she has never met.

Hope’s aunt, Peg, has lived in the Orchard House all her life, though the property has seen better days. She agrees to take Hope in if, in exchange, Hope helps with the cherry harvest—not exactly Hope’s specialty, but she’s out of options. As Hope works the orchard alongside her aunt, daughter and a kind man she finds increasingly difficult to ignore, a new life begins to blossom. But the mistakes of the past are never far behind, and soon the women will find themselves fighting harder than ever for their family roots and for each other.

House Rules by Ruby Lang
Carina Press

Seventeen years ago, different dreams pulled Simon Mizrahi and Lana Kuo apart. But when Lana takes a position as a chef back in Manhattan, her apartment search puts her right in her ex-husband’s path. Music teacher Simon is also hunting for a new place to live, and when Lana proposes they be platonic roomies, well…it’s not the worst idea he’s ever heard.

A sunny uptown two-bedroom sounds far more appealing than the cramped, noisy space where he’s currently struggling to work. Still, Simon has seen firsthand that Lana’s a flight risk, so he agrees on a trial basis.
