On My Wishlist #2

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where you can list all the books that you desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

Baggage Claim by Tanya Michna:

From Goodreads: Two women with nothing in common except look-alike luggage embark on a journey that will transform their lives...

When Beth Overton, a stay-at-home mom, learns that her husband has fallen short on his part of their marriage bargain, she's forced to rethink hers. But first she's got to retrieve the luggage she's accidentally switched with someone else...

Carly Frazer, a divorced history professor, keeps telling herself she's got her life completely under control...until it falls completely apart. With a major career move in doubt and her recently widowed mother moving in, Carly's got troubles galore-and another woman's suitcase.

When Beth and Carly meet in a hotel bar to switch bags, they are two very different women who never guess that a twist of fate, and their subsequent unlikely friendship, are about to take their lives in surprising new directions...

The Star Shack by Lila Castle:

Pete and Annabelle live for their summers together on Gingerbread Beach. They've always believed they were a perfect pair… until junior year, when Annabelle becomes obsessed with astrology. Now they can hardly stand each other. Pete thinks that Annabelle (a Leo) has become a total flake; Annabelle thinks Pete (a Scorpio) has become an uptight jerk.

When Annabelle dares Pete to open a summer business on the Boardwalk generating personalized horoscopes, their fast-paced, hilarious bickering soon rises to a fever pitch. The he-said/she-said advice of the Star Shack is wildly popular and seems able to fix any relationship problem… except their own.

But when one of Annabelle's star charts helps catch a thief, Pete might have to admit that the stars could really hold the key to the future… and to his own heart.

About the Author

When not writing LILA CASTLE can be found dancing the tango somewhere in her home city of New York or eating out at her favorite French bistro. She has a number of other interests, too, including travel, baseball, exotic hair-care products, and of course, astrology.
