By Emma St. Clair
For years Abby has harbored a crush on her best friend’s grumpy twin brother, Zane. She’s always kept her distance, until she has to put her mad IT skills at work for him. Zane owns a tech startup that has been having crazy glitches and has asked for Abby’s help. However, Zane is a bit uptight and a smidge of a micromanager. So, he insists on having Abby attend his company’s retreat so that he is kept up to date on her progress. The two are driven together by forced proximity and a common goal.
The first in the “Love Cliché’ series. It’s a cute closed-door romance. A perfect read to escape and relax the mind. You’ll be laughing all the way through this sweet read. “Falling for Your Best Friend’s Twin” is available as an audiobook the Hoopla App.

Sadie Montgomery is your typical portrait artist. She’s on the brink of starving and living in a rundown apartment that isn’t technically an apartment. Her acceptance into the National American Portrait Gallery competition is her chance at making it big. However, her big break slowly slips away when she has to have brain surgery just six weeks before her entry is due. The surgery makes her develop temporary face blindness. When she looks at someone’s face, her brain can’t understand what it’s seeing. It’s like a puzzle that can’t be put together because of too many missing pieces. Despite the face blindness, Sadie keeps trying to live her life as normally as possible. Part of that normal is taking your sick dog to the vet and meeting the most handsome although faceless vet named Oliver Addison. Another part of normal life is conversing with the neighbor Sadie thinks is a total player named Joe. Also, another part of life is being asked on a date by both and going on those dates. Who says a woman who can’t see faces can’t have a life?
