Cavendon Hall by Barbara Taylor Bradford: The Inghams and the Swanns are two families who lived side-by-side in Cavendon Hall for hundreds of years.
Charles Ingham is the sixth Earl of Mowbry and lives in the Yorkshire manor with his wife and six children, and Walter and Alice Swann, the valet and seamstress for the Inghams, also live in Cavendon Hall with their four daughters.
These two families live in the same house, but they have nothing in common, but as World War I approaches, both families are about to be tested beyond their limits.
Secrets are exposed and love and loyalty come into play to ensure that both families will never be the same again.
Tempting Fate by Jane Green: Gabby is 43 and content. She and her husband Elliott have been happily married for 18 years, they have two teenage daughters, and has been felt the need to relive her younger years as some of her friends do.
She has never thought about how it would feel to have a younger man be interested in her, and she has never dreamed of having an affair. But then she meets Matt, a handsome, and much younger, man, who makes Gabby feel alive and beautiful and much younger than 43.
But the deeper Gabby gets involved with Matt, the closer she comes to losing everything she has taken for granted — everything that matters to her.
Without Warning by David Rosenfelt: The small Maine town of Wilton has a tradition of creating a time capsule every 50 years, but when the most recent capsule washes up in the wake of a hurricane that has devastated the town, what Katie Sanford and Chief of Police Jake Robbins find inside reopens a tragedy they had both worked to put behind them.
Years ago, Katie's husband was convicted of the murder of Jake's wife Jenny, and then he himself later died in prison. But now, Katie and Jake find the time capsule filled with predictions about Jenny's murder dated months before she died, as well as predictions about eleven other events that took place after the death of Katie's husband.
