by Emily Henry is a feel-good romance that also pokes gentle fun at the conventions of feel-good romances. Nora Stephens is not the kind of woman to leave behind high-powered city life and fall for the Hallmark movie charm of a small town. In fact, she’s a successful literary agent who loves her Peloton-fueled lifestyle and relishes her professional ambitions. Still, when her pregnant sister Libby suggests a trip for the two of them to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina, Nora agrees to go, hoping for some bonding time with Libby. But, the presence of Nora’s professional nemesis, the grumpy book editor Charlie Lastra, threatens to derail the trip. As chance would have it, Charlie is from Sunshine Falls (his mother runs the local bookshop), and Nora can’t seem to get away from him. Sparks inevitably fly in this enemies-to-lovers romance.

by Brittany Mazique, illustrated by Sawyer Cloud, is a cheerful story about friendship that also celebrates some wonderful New Orleans traditions. Delphine Denise Debreaux loves Mardi Gras and every year; she and her friends ride their bikes in the annual parade through the streets of New Orleans. But this year, Delphine Denise wants to enter a float into the parade so she can win the grand prize for the best float: a crown. Delphine Denise is determined to win the prize no matter what, but her friends are less than enthusiastic about her plan. On the day of the parade, when trouble strikes her float and her friends come to her aid, Delphine Denise learns that maybe a crown isn’t the most important Mardi Gras prize after all. The back of the book includes some more information about Mardi Gras and its roots in New Orleans.
