St. Martin's offers a special deal to launch the single-title debut of author Maureen Child; readers are treated to two full-length books for the price of one.

In good times and bad, the Candellano family sticks together in FINDING YOU. In Carla Candellano's mind, many times they stick too close. For the past two years, she's been semiretired from the search-and-rescue business and trying to come to grips with a devastating loss. Concerned father Jackson Wyatt brings his 6-year-old daughter, Reese, to Chandler, CA, for the summer. Reese hasn't spoken since the death of her mother a year ago. Although the Candellanos can be like the tide, sweeping up everyone in their path, that might be just what Jackson, Reese and Carla need…

In KNOWING YOU, old loves collide with new ones. Stevie Ryan has known and loved the Candellanos since childhood. She considers Carla her best friend and at one time was deeply in love with pro-football star Nick Candellano. Stevie never dreamed she'd suddenly find herself falling in love with Nick's intellectually inclined twin brother, Paul. Could this relationship case a rift in the family?

The Candellano family, while slightly nuts, is also warm and wonderful. You'll get swept up in the lives and loves of these passionate and fascinating individuals. (May, 720 pp., $5.99)
