Meet the Shakespeare family: four sisters, four stories . . . four ways to find true love

A heartwarming Shakespeare Sisters romance from the bestselling author of Fix You.

Love blooms when you least expect it . . .

Juliet Shakespeare is done with love. With a growing floristry business and an adorable daughter to raise, life after separating from her husband is complicated enough.

But when handsome single father, Ryan Sutherland, arrives in town, everything changes. As much as she tries to distract herself, Juliet can't help but be drawn to the easy-going Romeo next door and the way he makes her feel.

Photographer Ryan is only back in his hometown for a few months so there's no point falling for someone he'll just have to say goodbye to. But he didn't account for Juliet - the intriguing and beautiful, red-haired woman next door. And in her, he might just have found everything he ever wanted . . .

'Simply a wonderful read' A Spoonful of Happy Endings

Pixie Marshall's freshman year of college ended two weeks ago, as did her residence in the school dorms. Which means she's in need of a new place to live and, subsequently, a job. She started working at Willow Inn because one of the job perks-and she'd use that term loosely-is free room and board. But what she hadn't realized is that her free room shares a hallway and a bathroom with the only person she was hoping to avoid for the rest of her life: Levi Andrews. As in: Hot guy. Handyman. Keeper of all her painful memories. Once upon a time, they were best friends on the brink of being something more, but that was before everything went to hell. All Pixie wants to do now is avoid him completely, which might be more harder than she thought. Because despite everything that happened before, Levi hasn't let go of his feelings for her either.
