Will life ease up enough to give them a chance to fall in love in this California coast romance? 
As a divorced mother, Annie Gerhard's friends and social life are enmeshed with the California coast. It's the only home her 15-year-old son David has ever known and his father lives there, but she needs a high-paying job to maintain their lifestyle. A recession has made jobs in the Silicon Valley hard to find—especially for a woman in technology. Does she need to move somewhere else to give her son the future she wants him to have? 
Widower John Johnson has escaped Montana memories of a deceased wife and betraying girlfriend by buying an independent bookstore in California. Now he has to make it a success in spite of a recession while settling himself and his horse into a region full of traffic and people.  Being attracted to a spunky woman with control issues is not on his to-do list.

    From New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the seventh novel in the beloved Regency-set world of her charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix.

    Meet Our Hero . . . 
    Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth’s sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past . . . and the key to his future. The problem is—it’s written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word. 
    Meet Our Heroine . . . 
    All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She’s fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken, and according to Gareth, probably best in small doses. But there’s something about her—something charming and vexing—that grabs him and won’t quite let go . . . 
    Meet Poor Mr. Mozart . . . 
    Or don’t. But rest assured, he’s spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual—and annually discordant—Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth’s every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other . . . and that there is nothing as simple—or as complicated—as a single, perfect kiss. 
    This edition includes the second epilogue from The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After.
