From neighbors to friends to lovers? All the makings of a risky second-chance romance by USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Brogan.
Since Carli Lancaster’s divorce, she’s worked hard to keep life as normal as possible for her daughters. When she lands a job as cohost of a local morning show, it looks like a fresh start. So does the arrival of a handsome new neighbor, who has more in common with Carli than just a property line.
Ben Chase is also new to single parenthood. And like Carli, he’s focused on the future.
From navigating neighborhood gossip to decorating for holidays to reaching out in times of trouble, they quickly learn to rely on each other. Just like a couple but without the complications of coupling! Sure, there’s attraction. They’re only human. But they’re also friends, and who wants to ruin a perfect relationship with romance?
They’re both thinking about adding some perks, though, and even if their new normal isn’t perfect, it’s definitely somewhere in the neighborhood.

Enter for a change to win one of 20 copies of what Kirkus calls an "engrossing" debut novel by Eric Michael Bovim, "Around the Sun."
Set at intervals in present-day New York, San Francisco, Barbados, Italy, and Barcelona, "Around the Sun" is told in lush, graceful prose, a portrait of grief and hope in the age of social media, globalization, and artistic decadence.
In the parishes of Louisiana, it is time for a reckoning. For more than two thousand years, children have been at the mercy of pedophile Catholic priests, but a reckoning is on its way in the form of outraged locals who will stop at nothing to avenge their own. Creed of Vengeance takes you on a heart-stopping journey through three generations of abuse victims as Cajun justice emerges out of bayou country, with inescapable and heartless cruelty brought down upon the guilty.
LeRóy Garceau, raped multiple times in childhood by his priest, and his similarly abused nephew, Remy, lead local vigilantes and outlaw motorcycle club members on a quest for punishment and retribution. With the help of a cadre of brilliant, ruthless Cajun women, LeRóy and Remy’s team pursue justice from the parishes and bayous of Louisiana to Angola State Prison, and even to the war-torn streets of Iraq.
But a final, unimaginable calling awaits: a confrontation on the astral plane, where a battle of spiritual forces will decide who is liberated and transformed and who is damned and enslaved for eternity.
Creed of Vengeance is a shocking and disturbing off-road journey into the moral swamp where pedophile Catholic priests and their protectors in the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy prey on their innocent child victims; until predators become prey.
A missing girl. A loving mother who never gave up. A betrayed wife who doesn’t know who to trust.
Teenager Edie Hudson was nobody’s little darling, which made vanishing all too easy. Two decades later, she’s been forgotten by everyone except her mother, Samantha.
And the person who knows what happened to her.
Samantha has had a long time to remember, and to regret. Having seen how little her daughter mattered to the community in the months following her disappearance, she wonders if Edie was lost before she was even gone. Or was it guilt, not indifference, that made the locals turn a blind eye? When she meets Frances, she at last starts to hope for answers.
Because Frances is obsessed with the mystery too, after finding a photo of her husband with the girl who disappeared.
What really happened all those years ago? And just how dangerous could it be to find out?
