The Dating Plan by Sara Desai

““Daisy is shocked when she runs into Liam, who stood her up at her high school prom. To save her employer and Liam’s family legacy, they must fake an engagement and marriage and not fall in love. A whirlwind of a romcom with South Asian American and Irish American families providing background drama and entertainment. Daisy and Liam are lovably imperfect in this quick escapist read. Give to readers who liked Take a Hint, Dani Brown and The Right Swipe.” —Laura Bonds, Harris County Public Library, Houston, TX

NoveList read-alike: Accidentally Engaged by Farah Heron

Eternal by Lisa Scottoline

“Set in Italy during the Fascist regime and subsequent Nazi involvement, this historical fiction, a departure for the author, is a solid dose of history told through the lives and loves of characters, personally affected by the politics. The impact of decisions and the efforts of individuals to change the course of their country and their lives are vividly portrayed. Perfect for fans of The Lilac Girls and The Nightingale.” —Carol Tuttle, Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library, Willoughby, OH

NoveList read-alike: After the Party by Cressida Connolly
