The Proposal
By Meg Cabot

The last place Suze Simon expects to find herself during Valentine’s Day is a cemetery. But that’s what happens when you’re a mediator—cursed with the “gift” of communicating with the dead.

That’s how Suze has ended up at the graves of a pair of tragic young lovers. They’re NCDPs—Non-Compliant Deceased Persons—whose drama didn’t end with death. It’s Suze’s job to make sure they move on—for good.

But the NCDPs aren’t the only ones with problems. The reason Suze is spending her Valentine’s Day with the undead instead of her boyfriend, Jesse, is because he’s having so much trouble adjusting to life after death . . . not surprising, considering the fact that he used to be an NCDP himself, and now his girlfriend busts his former kind for a living.

Can Suze use her mediating skills to propose a mutual resolution, and bring all these young lovers together, especially on the night Saint Valentine declared sacred to romance? Or will she end up alone—and possibly undead—herself?

Moonlight Over Paris
By Jennifer Robson

Spring, 1924

Recovering from a broken engagement and a near-fatal illness, Lady Helena Montagu-Douglas-Parr vows to live life on her own terms. Breaking free from the stifling constraints of society, she travels to France to stay with her free-spirited aunt. For one year, she will simply be Miss Parr. She will explore the streets of Paris and pursue her artistic dreams.

Paris is a bohemian paradise teeming with actors, painters, and writers who welcome Helena into their exciting circle. Among them is Sam Howard, an irascible, infuriatingly honest correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. Dangerously attractive and deeply scarred by the war, Sam is unlike any man she’s ever encountered. He offers her a glimpse of a future that is irresistible and impossible.

As Paris rises from the ashes of war, so does Helena. But is she strong enough to completely let go of the past and follow her heart, no matter where it leads her?

The Forgotten Room
By Karen White et al.

1945: When the critically wounded Captain Cooper Ravenal is brought to a private hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, young Dr. Kate Schuyler is drawn into a complex mystery that connects three generations of women in her family to a single extraordinary room in a Gilded Age mansion.

Who is the woman in Captain Ravenel’s portrait miniature who looks so much like Kate?  And why is she wearing the ruby pendant handed down to Kate by her mother?  In their pursuit of answers, they find themselves drawn into the turbulent stories of Gilded Age Olive Van Alen, driven from riches to rags, who hired out as a servant in the very house her father designed, and Jazz Age Lucy Young, who came from Brooklyn to Manhattan in pursuit of the father she had never known.  But are Kate and Cooper ready for the secrets that will be revealed in the Forgotten Room?
