Summary

Career-focused Jane Spencer is supposed to be on vacation. One whole week to relax and unwind at her family's home in Auckland. One whole week without any worries or cares, if only she can tear herself away from her work and the never-ending emails that seem to pile up. 
  
Fortunately, there's a distraction on the other side of the fence. A distraction by the name of Toby Kahui. She hasn't seen Toby in years, not since they graduated from middle school. The connection is immediate. Compelling. Strong. 
  
Will Jane conquer her fears about commitment? Will she let Toby sweep her off her feet? Is Jane willing to take a chance on the literal boy next door?

    It's easy to become overwhelmed to the point of paralysis these days. Just ask grade-schooler Tina. Better yet, ask Tina's granny. Her granny has had a rough time of late. 
    First, Tina's grandfather, the family decision-maker, died. Next, her granny was saddled with having to care for granddaughter Tina while Tina's mother went to work. That became especially burdensome after Tina's bus driver forgot to drop her off from school one day. But the worst day of her granny's life was yet to come. 
    One afternoon Tina finds herself helplessly captive in the backseat of her granny's Lincoln. She can only watch as the pressure of daily decision-making forces away the last of her granny's sanity. Meanwhile, the Lincoln speeds and careens wildly down the streets of Tina's hometown with Tina trapped in the backseat and her granny paralyzed behind the wheel. 
    Can Tina help her granny break free from her spiral in time to save both their lives? The decision is in her hands.
