These sweet stories are a charming treat for those relaxing summer days. The young adult growing pains these couples share will be relatable to many readers, and the happy endings are an uplifting reinforcement of the power of love, patience and trust.

Four young couples find romance in the midst of sibling rivalry, insecurity and awkward misunderstandings. A Florida vacation gives Graham the chance to meet his pen pal, but when he discovers that he has mistaken Sherry for her sister, he must find a way to manage his error without hurting either of their feelings. Ariana finds her engagement to Jesse threatened when his behavior seems immature and dangerous, but her heart can’t resist him when he sets out to prove his love for her. With a beautiful older sister who attracts a lot of male attention, Esther is certain that Judah will never be interested in her; when her crush on him lessens as she finds more confidence in herself, Judah takes notice. Martha is used to being responsible after taking care of her six younger siblings for a decade, but will her inability to trust keep her from a future with Jacob, who understands her only as someone else who has lost a mother at a young age can? (THOMAS NELSON, Jun., 400 pp., $15.99)
