Wonderboy

Ghastly new home. Potentially adulterous husband.... Not quite the fresh start in the country she was promised.

A fixer-upper in the sticks was the last place city girl Ro Skews expected to live. But her husband, Marcus, wants it--and all the arguments are on his side, namely a better life for Tod, their wonderboy, who has developed social problems in London. Of course, the five-year-old has never been the most...conventional child.

While Ro (grudgingly) makes a life for herself in stuffy Chetsley (if you can count suffering the side effects of floor sanding and playing Suburban Lawn Warfare with her sexy neighbor as a life), Marcus starts spending more nights in the city with his cell phone switched off. And Tod, whose fascination with mazes seems to have blossomed into a full-blown obsession, treads the worrying line between eccentric and problematic.

Ro searches for the right path in a few mazes of her own--her marriage, motherhood,...

Lucky Girl

Stella Moon isn't much for change. Why else would she have left her hometown to study music in London only to scurry back to teach scales to overgrown brats and the occasional curious adult? But sometimes you can't escape change, especially when it's staring you in the face (like, for instance, your boyfriend walking out on you), nipping at your heels (new kids next door who've decided your house is more fun to play at than theirs), whispering in your ear (sexy stranger who shows up in unexpected places) and knocking on your door (the return of Dad, who's had more than a few falls from TV chef grace).

With the world bearing down on her, it looks as if Stella has no choice but to embrace change and see where it takes her. Lucky girl.
