Martine has crafted a smart and thoroughly enjoyable series debut for fans and newcomers alike. The small-town setting with a fascinating Celtic history is an ideal backdrop for her fully realized characters. Their memories of past summers bring each scene to life. The delightfully unique premise of the local Highland Games provides high stakes for all the colorful residents and beautifully bridges the gap between the main couple’s past and present. No doubt this series will keep readers returning for more.

Top New York event planner Jen Haverhurst is back in Gleann, N.H. — the town where she spent the happiest summers of her childhood — charged with saving the Highland Games, Gleann’s main tourist attraction, and her family’s B&B. When Jen realizes Leith MacDougall, the Games’ legendary golden boy, is still in town, she knows his participation is the key to saving the event. But Leith is headed out of Gleann, and hardly inclined to assist Jen after she shattered his heart 10 years earlier. As their childhood romance blazes into an adult affair, will Jen be able to save the Games while fighting for a future with Leith? (BERKLEY SENSATION, Oct., 304 pp., $7.99)
