One Day in December by Josie Silver.
Laurie is certain that love at first sight only exists in movies. But then, one snowy December day, she spots a man through a misted-up bus window and knows he’s the one. Their gazes lock, there’s a brief moment of perfect magic… and then her bus departs.
Laurie spends a year looking for him in every bus stop and cafe in London, convinced they’re destined to meet again. But she never finds him, at least not when it matters. Instead, they “reunite” at a Christmas party, where Laurie’s best friend Sarah presents her new boyfriend to Laurie with glee. It’s Jack, the bus conductor. That would be the case.
Laurie, Sarah, and Jack have 10 years of friendship, heartbreak, wasted opportunities, routes not travelled, and destiny re-examined ahead of them.

Eva Mercy, a single mother and writer from Brooklyn, is feeling pressured from all sides. Shane Hall is a secretive, mysterious, award-winning literary novelist who appears in New York to everyone’s astonishment.
Sparks ignite when Shane and Eva meet at an unexpected literary gathering, raising the eyebrows of New York’s Black literati. Nobody knows that twenty years ago, a young Eva and a young Shane spent a frantic, fiery week hopelessly in love. They may seem as if everything is normal today, but they can’t deny their chemistry, or the fact that they’ve been secretly writing to one other in their books since then.
Eva and Shane reconcile over the course of the following seven days in the middle of a sweltering Brooklyn summer, but Eva is unsure how she can trust the guy who broke her heart, and she has to get him out of New York. But, before Shane vanishes, there are some questions that need to be answered.
Regretting You by Colleen Hoover.

Morgan is adamant about not allowing her kid to make the same errors she made. Morgan put her own goals on wait when she became pregnant and married much too young. Clara is not interested in following in her mother’s footsteps. Her obedient mother is devoid of any sense of spontaneity.
Morgan and Clara are finding it more difficult to cohabit due to their opposing personalities and agendas. Chris, Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family’s rock, is the only one who can keep the peace in the house. However, Chris’s calm is broken when he is engaged in a fatal and dubious accident. Morgan and Clara will not be the only ones to suffer the tragic and long-term effects. Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to find comfort in, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see as they struggle to reconstruct all that has crashed around them. New secrets, animosity, and misunderstandings separate mother and daughter with each passing day. They may never be able to get back together because they are so far away.
Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren.
Macy Sorensen is settling into an ambitious, though emotionally lukewarm, routine: work hard as a new paediatrics resident, arrange her wedding to an older, financially secure guy, and keep her head down and emotions hidden.
When she runs into Elliot Petropoulos, her first and only love, the carefully crafted bubble begins to disintegrate. Elliot was once Macy’s entire universe, developing from a gangly bookish buddy to the guy who coaxed her heart open again after the death of her mother…only to destroy it the night he confessed his love for her.Teenage Elliot and Macy spend weekends and leisurely summers together in a home outside of San Francisco, reading books, swapping favourite phrases, and talking through their growing pains and successes, as told in alternate periods between Then and Now. They had been strangers to one another as adults until their unexpected meeting. Elliot will come to realise the reality behind Macy’s decade-long quiet, despite the anguish of what occurred that night so many years ago, and will have to overcome the past and himself to restore her trust in the prospect of an all-consuming love.
