Happy Singles Day

Anne Marie Walker. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $14.99 trade paper (304p) ISBN 978-1-7282-1649-2
Walker (Save the Date) delivers a touching contemporary romance about finding the courage to love again after heartbreak. Workaholic Paige Parker has been single ever since finding her fiancé in bed with her boss three years earlier. Paige happily devotes herself to her career as a professional organizer and claims to have no desire for a relationship. To prove it to her bestie, Paige heads to the Copper Lantern Inn to privately celebrate Singles Day, February 15. But the run-down inn is nothing like the “barefoot paradise” described in the advertisement, and the “hot-as-hell” innkeeper, Lucas Croft, is anything but welcoming. After their disastrous first encounter, a disappointed Paige decides to return home to Chicago, but a storm makes leaving impossible. Stranded, Paige forms an uneasy truce with widower Lucas—and their growing attraction to one another soon becomes impossible to deny. Walker effortlessly creates sexual tension without the sex, and adds heart to the story through Lucas’s tender relationships with his sister and four-year-old daughter. The dynamic between Paige and her friend, meanwhile, adds plenty of comic moments. The result is a sparkling, heartfelt rom-com. Agent: Pamela Harty, Knight Agency. (Jan.)
