Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Two sisters must learn from each other’s strengths and trust in the redeeming power of love in a touching new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.
The Lakey sisters are perfect opposites. After their mother died and their father was lost in grief, Willa had no choice but to raise her sister, Harper, and their brother, Lucas. Then, as an adult, she put her own life on hold to nurse Harper through a terrifying illness. Now that Harper is better and the sisters are living as roommates, Willa has realized her dream of running her own bakery and coffee shop, bringing her special brand of caretaking to the whole Oceanside community.
Harper, on the other hand, is always on the go. Overcoming a terrible illness has given her a new lease on life, and she does not intend to waste it. When Harper announces her plan to summit Mount Rainier, Willa fears she may be pushing herself too far. Harper, for her part, urges Willa to stop worrying and do something outside of her comfort zone—like taking a chance on love with a handsome new customer.  
Sean O’Malley is as charming as he is intriguing—a freelance photographer whose assignments take him to the ends of the earth. Soon Willa’s falling for him in a way that is both exciting and terrifying. But life has taught Willa to hedge her bets, and she wonders whether the potential heartache is worth the risk.  
Life has more challenges in store for them all. But both sisters will discover that even in the darkest moments, family is everything.

        February 1, 2020

        Award-winning Métis author Dimaline makes her debut with an American publisher, Empire of Wild, the edgy story of Joan, heard fighting vituperatively with her now missing husband, who believes she spots him posing as a charismatic preacher in a battered revival tent (75,000-copy first printing). The youngest winner ever of Italy's prestigious Premio Strega, Giordano (The Solitude of Prime Numbers) returns with Heaven and Earth to limn the enduring bonds linking Teresa to three young men she meets one summer in Puglia, her father's childhood home. From debuter Mackenzie, a Commonwealth Short Story Prize winner, One Year of Ugly (60,000-copy first printing) takes a humorous approach to recount the travails of a Venezuelan family living illegally in Trinidad. A best-selling author in mass market, McKinlay moves into trade paperback original with Paris Is Always a Good Idea, the story.` of a young woman who revisits her gap year in Ireland, France, and Italy, looking for lost loves but finding something different. In the No. 1 New York Times best-selling Macomber's A Walk Along the Beach, shy Willa--especially close to sister Harper after their mother's death--is ready to follow Harper's advice about risking love until tragedy befalls Harper. Martin returns after his high-flying debut, Early Work, with the story collection Cool for America about the gap between what people want and what they achieve. Winner of the Terry Southern Prize, Nugent shows us all the stumbling antics of near-adults in Fraternity. In Poeppel's Musical Chairs, Bridget and Will hatch a plan to lure shining-star violinist Gavin Glantz back to their Forsyth Trio, which they founded together as Juilliard students, even as Bridget wrestles with multiple family complications (40,000-copy first printing).

        Starred review from July 6, 2020
        Macomber (Window on the Bay) scores another home run with this surprisingly heavy but uplifting contemporary romance between a café owner and a photographer. Coffee shop owner Willa Lakey hasn’t had it easy: her mother died of a brain aneurysm when Willa was just 13 years old, her father sank into alcoholism, and her sister, Harper, was subsequently diagnosed with leukemia. Former professional baseball player Sean O’Malley had a charmed life before injury ended both his career and his long-term relationship. Now Sean works as a photographer and frequents Willa’s café—despite not liking coffee. When he admits to Willa that he only comes in each day to see her, the pair embark on a relationship. But then Harper’s cancer returns and their relationship is put to the test. In eloquent prose, Macomber shows the messiness of supporting a loved one with cancer, beautifully depicting Willa’s misplaced anger, crushing grief, and regret. The loving bond between Willa and Sean, along with the charming supporting cast (especially the aptly named canine, Bandit), adds a welcome dose of light and hope to the story. With this stirring romance, Macomber demonstrates her mastery of the genre. Agent: Theresa Park, Park & Fine Literary and Media.
