1.) Cool Beans (by Erynn Mangum)
Quick Synopsis: For those who like coffee, chocolate, friends, ice-cream and obsessing over all four, Cool Beans (book 1 of 3) is definitely the book series for you! Maya Davis is a barista and struggling to juggle her ambitions, love life (which is so non-existent) and the "web we weave when we begin to deceive". Can good come out of all the dramas of her life? And could she possibly find something that means more to her than coffee? (Answer: Not likely!)

3.) Silent Governess (by Julie Klassen)
Rating: 5 (If I could give it a 6, I would.)
Quick Synopsis: Olivia Keene flees her small town in the dead of the night - running away from her past, her shame and her own secret. Little did she know she'd stumble across the secret of another - the esteemed Lord Bradley - after being attacked in the woods. A secret which could mean the demise of everything he has; his reputation, title and the life he knows. As a precaution, Lord Bradley takes her on as a governess for his niece and nephew. Unable to speak due to an injury sustained during the attack, she remains silent, though this does nothing to stop Lord Bradley's growing attraction for her. But can they be together when so many secrets threaten to tear them apart? BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN and one of my favourites!
