“In this follow-up to Delilah Green Doesn’t Care, Astrid is determined to bounce back from a breakup by going on a TV building reno show. When sparks fly with the show’s carpenter, Astrid is thrown, having never before considered herself queer. With a little guidance from Delilah, she follows her instincts.

The Rewind by Allison Winn Scotch
Two exes wake up together with wedding bands on their fingers—and no idea how they got there. They have just one New Year’s Eve at the end of 1999 to figure it out in this big-hearted and nostalgic rom-com from New York Times bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch.
“Frankie and Ezra run into each other at a friend’s wedding, revisiting the highs and lows of their college romance, and discover a lot about themselves and each other along the way. With the 1999 college campus setting, this is a nostalgic and heartfelt journey to a bygone era. For fans of Just Another Love Song or The Half of It.” —Alicia Ahlvers, Henrico County Public Library, Henrico, VA

They decide to fake their way through it…but will it end in true love? This is a dual perspective, slow burn romcom full of wit and chemistry.
