The Lemon Orchard by Luanne Rice (July 2)
From the author's website: Set in the sea and citrus-scented air of the breathtaking Santa Monica mountains, The Lemon Orchard is an affirming story about the redemptive power of compassion and the kind of love that seems to find us when we need it most.

The publisher of this book (Thomas Dunne Books) promises this "debut novel about luck and love, and winning a sweepstakes...will charm readers from the very first page.
Letters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole (July 9)
From Amazon's description: A sweeping story told in letters, spanning two continents and two world wars, Jessica Brockmole's atmospheric debut novel captures the indelible ways that people fall in love and celebrate the power of the written word to stir the heart.
