Here together for the first time in a convenient ebook bundle, the first four books in New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas' Friday Harbor series: Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor Three lonely people. Three lives at the crossroads. Three people who are about to discover that Christmas is the time of year when anything is possible, and when wishes have a way of finding the path home... Rainshadow Road Lucy Marinn is a glass artist living in Friday Harbor, Washington, with a boyfriend who she believes is her soul mate. She has always had a magical side—a gift that finds its way into the glasswork she creates—and she struggles to keep it contained. But then Lucy is blindsided when her boyfriend leaves her and his new lover is none other than Lucy's own sister. Questions about love, loyalty, old patterns, mistakes, and new beginnings are explored as Lucy learns that some things in life—even after being broken—can be re-made into something beautiful. And that it is only by discovering who you really are that you can find the one who truly deserves you. Dream Lake One of three Nolan brothers who call Friday Harbor home, Alex Nolan, is about as bitter and cynical as they come. He battles his demons with the help of a whiskey bottle, and he lives in his own private hell. And then, a ghost shows up. Only Alex can see him. Has he finally crossed over the threshold to insanity? When Zoë Hoffman meets the startlingly gorgeous Alex Nolan, all her instincts tell her to run. But she somehow manages to open his mind to the possibility that old ghosts can breathe new life into a broken soul—and that love can reach beyond time, space, and reason to take hold of hearts that yearn for it. . . Crystal Cove As the proprietor of a successful boutique hotel, Justine Hoffman has the life she has always wanted. But there is still something missing: Love. A spell was cast on Justine when she was born, with the result that she will never find her soul mate. But she is nothing if not determined and eventually Justine finds a way to break the enchantment—never dreaming of the dangerous complications that will follow...

Der Erstling von Matthew FitzSimmons wurde in den USA ein riesiger Bestseller. Vor zehn Jahren verschwand die damals 14-jährige Suzanne Lombard. Spurlos. Wurde Suzanne ermordet? Oder von einem Pädophilen gekidnappt? Hält man sie seit Jahren gefangen? Als Suzannes Vater für das Amt des US-Präsidenten kandidiert, tauchen plötzlich neue rätselhafte Hinweise auf ihren Verbleib auf. Diese Spuren kann womöglich nur ein Mensch entschlüsseln: Gibson Vaughn, der mit Suzanne aufwuchs und die für ihn wie eine kleine Schwester war. Für Vaughn, Ex-Marine, Computerfreak, arbeitslos, wird die Suche nach Suzanne zu einer gefahrvollen Reise in die Vergangenheit. Stück für Stück setzt er das Puzzle zusammen, bis die entsetzliche Wahrheit am Ende sein eigenes Leben bedroht. Falls Sie ein Fan von harten Thrillern mit tiefen Emotionen in der Art von Lee Child, Dennis Lehane oder Harlan Coben sind: Zugreifen! The Washington Post: »FitzSimmons hat einen Soziopathen geschaffen, der es in sich hat.« Crimespree Magazine: »Ein höllisches Debüt ...« Matthew FitzSimmons aus Illinois, USA, wuchs in London auf. Seine idyllische Kindheit wurde 1977 erschüttert, als er die traumatische Erfahrung machte, dass sein Vater während der Vorführung von Star Wars schnarchte und er deshalb befürchtete, adoptiert worden zu sein. Matthew schloss ein Studium der Psychologie ab, obwohl seine ganze Leidenschaft dem Theater galt. Nach einigen Jahren in New York zog es ihn nach China. Dort schrieb er seinen ersten Roman (über den besser geschwiegen wird). Jetzt lebt er in Washington, D. C., und lehrt an einer privaten High School englische Literatur und Theater.

They say that opposites attract. But what happens when one of them has been devastated by betrayal and the other is so damaged and jaded that his heart is made of stone? In New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas's Dream Lake, readers well enter the world of Friday Harbor, an enchanting town in the Pacific Northwest where things are not quite as they seem and where true love might just have a ghost of a chance. . . . Alex Nolan is about as bitter and cynical as they come. One of three Nolan brothers who call Friday Harbor home, he's nothing like Sam or Mark. They actually believe in love; they think the risk of pain is worth the chance of happiness. But Alex battles his demons with the help of a whiskey bottle, and he lives in his own private hell. And then, a ghost shows up. Only Alex can see him. Has Alex finally crossed over the threshold to insanity? Zoë Hoffman is as gentle and romantic as they come.

The ghost has been existing in the half-light of this world for decades. He doesn't know who he is, or why he is stuck in the Nolans' Victorian house. All he knows is that he loved a girl once. And Alex and Zoë hold the key to unlocking a mystery that keeps him trapped here. Zoë and Alex are oil and water, fire and ice, sunshine and shadow. But sometimes it takes only a glimmer of light to chase away the dark, and sometimes love can reach beyond time, space, and reason to take hold of hearts that yearn for it. . . .
