From Amazon: It's spring break, and the pretty little liars are trading in Rosewood for a
cruise vacation. They want nothing more than to sail into the tropical sunset
and leave their troubles behind for one blissful week. But where Emily, Aria,
Spencer, and Hanna go, A goes, too. From scuba diving to tanning on the upper
deck, A is there, soaking up all their new secrets.
Emily is smooching a stowaway. Aria's treasure-hunting partner is a little
too interested in her booty. Spencer's going overboard trying to land a new
boy. And a blast—or rather, a crash—from Hanna's past could mean rough waters
ahead for everyone.
The liars better tighten their life jackets. A perfect storm is brewing, and
if they aren't careful, A will bury them at sea. . . .
From Goodreads: After the riveting—and romantic—events of Legacy, Katy has won
Peter’s heart and is now claiming her place in the magical world.

world hidden from the blue-blooded preppies, aka Muffies, who also walk the

because Katy catches them staging a made-up ritual—and to her astonishment, the
girls collapse at Katy’s feet and fall into comas. When Katy is blamed, she
becomes desperate to clear her name and finds herself battling all odds to
harness her growing magical powers in order to save the Muffies and dispel the
Darkness once more.
From Goodreads: Sadie can’t wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional
mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised…even though
leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better
life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time.
But when Sadie’s mother wipes out Sadie’s savings, her
escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash—and fast—or
she’ll be stuck in this town forever.
With Brendan’s help, she devises a plan—the ultimate
con—to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts
falling for her own hoax…and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change
her life, but she wasn't prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own
deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it
seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose....

From Goodreads: Set in turn of the century London, The Friday Society
follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women,
all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant;
Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The
three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance
meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery
It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way,
to solve the murder–and the crimes they believe may be connected to
it–without calling too much attention to themselves.
