Definition of the "Women's Fiction Genre": The central goal of ebooks in the Women's Fiction genre is to focus on the experience of a woman or group of women. And, those experiences oftentimes relate to adverse experiences the woman goes through, and ultimately prevails over. The story can involve romance, but does not need to and does not necessarily involve romance the majority of the time. The most important part of ebooks in the Women's Fiction genre is that the woman playing the main character experiences personal growth, and oftentimes goes through life-changing events.
Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Women's Fiction Genre are Tracy Brogan (Crazy Little Thing), Lisa Genova (Still Alice), Christina Baker Kline (Orphan Train), and Liane Moriarty (The Husband's Secret).
In this charming romantic comedy perfect for fans of Meg Cabot and Sophie Kinsella, critically acclaimed author Teri Wilson shows us that sometimes being pushed out of your comfort zone leads you to the ultimate prize.
Charlotte Gorman loves her job as an elementary school librarian, and is content to experience life through the pages of her books. Which couldn’t be more opposite from her identical twin sister. Ginny, an Instagram-famous beauty pageant contestant, has been chasing a crown since she was old enough to enunciate the words world peace, and she’s not giving up until she gets the title of Miss American Treasure. And Ginny’s refusing to do it alone this time.
She drags Charlotte to the pageant as a good luck charm, but the winning plan quickly goes awry when Ginny has a terrible, face-altering allergic reaction the night before the pageant, and Charlotte suddenly finds herself in a switcheroo the twins haven’t successfully pulled off in decades.
Woefully unprepared for the glittery world of hair extensions, false eyelashes, and push-up bras, Charlotte is mortified at every unstable step in her sky-high stilettos. But as she discovers there’s more to her fellow contestants than just wanting a sparkly crown, Charlotte realizes she has a whole new motivation for winning.

There's no magic in any realm that can fix this mess. I've just got to dig in and get to work.
One day I'm fighting beside my best friends in the Fae realm, and the next I can't light a candle without burning down my house.
I always thought witches weren't supposed to have hot flashes unless we were cursed.
But then the day came when I discovered that I'm cursed.
Well, the pandering ex and the nearly-empty nest would be bad enough on their own.
But did I mention the demonic assassin who's set his sights on me too?
I told you, I'm cursed.
I'm also done with letting life just happen to me. Nothing has been the same in Cottlehill Wilds since my best friend Fiona showed up. Me included.
Fate better stand up and take notice. This witch is just getting better with age.
At forty-four, I know who I am. I have what it takes to fix my wild magic, deal with this killer demon, and save the supernaturals who call my small English town home.
And I can do it all despite the wild magical flares, the stray chin hair, and my new wrinkle.
Solving a murder is dangerous business. So is falling in love…
Lady Chastity Fallon will not stand idly by while her sister is suspected of murder. Since no one wants to help, she’ll take matters into her own hands. The plan? Simple. She’ll disguise herself as a servant and investigate. But when her ruse leads her to the enigmatic Lord Kendall, Chastity soon realizes nothing in her life will ever be simple again…
As much as Valentine would like to ignore the scheming beauty who claims to be a servant, he simply can’t. He needs her. Bringing his footman’s killer to justice would be impossible without her, because the vivacious Chastity can do what he can’t—talk to people and gain their trust. So, he’ll accept the chaos she brings into his life. Accepting her into his heart, however, is another matter entirely…
Fortunately for Chastity and Valentine, intrigue has a way of putting lovers on the path to happily ever after. But first, they’ve got a killer to catch…

Lacey Stewart was a normal woman with a mundane job at a DC art gallery. But that was before. Before a man was stabbed in front of her. Before someone tried to kill her. Now, Lacey needs help. She just never expected that help to come from the only man she’s ever truly loved. The man she can’t have…
Retired Marine Special Operator Deep Del Toro knew the men who had Lacey in their sights were professionals. He also knew the cops and the FBI couldn’t keep her safe. What he didn’t know was just how far he’d go to protect the woman he loved. And as it turned out, there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for her.
Before Lacey and Deep can claim their happily ever after, they’ll need to unravel an international web of interconnected crimes in a world where right and wrong so often overlap. It won’t be easy. But they’re in far too deep to back out now…

Sweet Water, we have a project....
Meet Kaitlyn Colby, a clumsy, inappropriate blurter with self-esteem issues, but also quite handy with an axe. She's certainly no superhero, but she fights the battles of a single mom with sweet snarkasm. Between work and pining for and co-parenting with her man-child ex (is there any other kind?), Kaitlyn has no time to find that special someone. And if she did, would he really want her anyway? Kaitlyn's sister and friends (The Sweet Water Circle) say yes, so following a typical Kaitlyn slip up, The Circle intervenes to force her out of the funk that she fell into following her unwanted divorce.
When Kaitlyn makes a decision to pursue her advertising career over love, she tumbles (like no tumble you've ever seen…or heard) into the life of hunky, bay breeze-drinking Hunter Dixon, an ad exec who is intrigued enough by Kaitlyn that he hires her firm to revive a struggling project, much like herself.
Can Kaitlyn become the woman she needs to be to land the man of her dreams? Maybe. Maybe not. But you'll laugh out loud as she tries. There's no doubt you'll be rooting for the lovable, hilarious, and relatable Kaitlyn. And you'll probably love her friends, too, which is good, because their stories are ready to be told in the Sweet Water Circle series!
Project Kaitlyn could be the funniest book you ever read. It's a hilarious romantic comedy that speaks the truth (well, most of the time) about life and love, and…hiking thongs? What the heck is that? Well, you'll just have to read it to find out!

These five best friends made a Summer Sand Pact as teens and have only kept it once or twice—until they reunite decades later and renew their agreement to meet in Five Island Cove every summer.
Alice Kelton's marriage is in shambles, and while she's always thought she'd stay with her husband, after her last visit to the cove, she went back to the Hamptons and filed for divorce. She and her twins are moving to Rocky Ridge in Five Island Cove permanently, but she's not telling anyone.
Robin's husband is in Alaska for the summer, and she's pretending she's okay.
Eloise comes back to the cove every couple of weeks so she can see her new boyfriend, though she's growing tired of the distance between them.
AJ broke up with her non-committal boyfriend, and she's happier, freer, and open to another relationship, even though she lives in Atlanta.
Kelli brings her son to the cove this time, knowing her relationship with her husband is on the rocks and desperate to fix it. She plans to get some help from her sisterhood during the two weeks in the cove.
When she's followed to the beach house where the other women and their children have gathered, Kelli learns a dangerous secret thirty years in the making that could completely undo all the progress she's made...
Get ready for more secrets to come to light in Five Island Cove, and for these five women to show each other what it means to love and support someone through thick and thin.
Rumor has it that midlife is for drinking wine, traveling, and discovering the joy of life. But there's no rest for the wicked. Or for a Fae-witch hybrid like myself.
Danger follows me everywhere - even to the grocery store - as the evil entity continues to stalk supernaturals in Cottlehill Wilds. But I barely have time to worry about that now that the Fae Queen is dead.
My bad. No, seriously. I let my power loose and it took over.
Leaving Grams behind to return to Eidothea and fight a war wasn't exactly in my plans. As usual, I'm totally clueless. At least I have my orthotic inserts to keep me on my feet and Sebastian and his irresistible kisses to lift my spirits when things go wrong.
And let's face it: things are going to go wrong.
Just because I can cast a spell without burning off my eyebrows now doesn't mean I can survive giant trolls, bogharts, or the insane Fae King. And since my best friends refuse to let me face this battle alone, the stress of saving the realm and the people I love most in both worlds is threatening to turn me prematurely grey.
Sometimes being the Guardian really sucks.
Elise’s life as she knows it is over. Her husband of twenty years had an affair; her children have left the nest; and she hasn’t managed to sell a screenplay in almost ten years. Now, one of the people she loved most in the world—her mother—is dead.
“Heartbroken” doesn’t even cover it. She’s never been more lost in her life.
Elise and her mother had always lived in Los Angeles. Her mother was an actress and a single mother, who never revealed who Elise’s father was.
Now, Elise finds a secret diary within her mother’s things—one that reveals a portion of her mother’s life that Elise never knew about.

While there, Elise’s mother met a man who changed her life forever. He must be Elise’s father. And Elise is determined to find out.
Now, Elise must decide what to do next. How will she grapple with her mother’s death? And could a trip to Mackinac Island change her life, like it did her mother’s?
She thought all the adventure in her life was over. She thought she would never find happiness again.
But she’s beginning to think the adventure has only just begun.
Dive into this women's fiction boxset for a trek of a lifetime: from the glittering sands of Los Angeles, all the way to that gem of an island between the southern and northern peninsulas of Michigan, Mackinac Island, where secrets have been kept for the previous forty years.

Welcome to Premonition Pointe, where witches take care of their own.
Grace Valentine had the perfect marriage and a great career managing her husband’s real estate office. Or so she thought until three months ago when she was served with divorce papers. Thanks to her philandering ex, not only is she out of a husband, she’s out of a job, too.
At the age of forty-five with the help of her coven, Grace is ready to pick up the pieces and move on. But her only job prospect is at the rival real estate office, and it’s only for a trial run. She’ll need to prove that she can sell the haunted properties of Premonition Pointe before she’s hired permanently.
But who has time to deal with haunted houses when she’s testing out every anti-perspirant on the market to combat her escalating hot flashes, trying not to succumb to the advances of the hot thirty-four-year-old in her office, and ignoring the urges to hex her ex with erectile disfunction? Okay, maybe she doesn’t ignore the urges. She might be a witch, but she’s only human. Can Grace prove to herself and her new boss she has the magical touch to sell the impossible and find the courage get her groove back… even if her new love interest is a decade younger?
A deeply moving tale of love, sex, motherhood, separation, ghosts of the past, and friendship. Spanning fifty years from the 1960s to modern times, the narrative records the development of a relationship between two young people who are neighbors on the back streets of Harehills in Leeds. Their love blossoms in passionate scenes of teenage lust and develops during marriage and parenthood before a hapless decision leads to their separation. Ultimately the relationship becomes an unbreakable friendship that the couple's children find difficult to understand. Perhaps it is only with the story's conclusion that the family comprehends what a truly unique bond survives through so many troubling circumstances. The story is loosely based on real-life events and is another gripping read from the author of A Cross Of Crocuses.
This is Part 1 of a 4 part novel about a woman born in the backwoods in1900. In those days, women couldn’t vote, drink in public, or speak their minds outside of their homes. Most women anyway, but one thing for sure, Margaret Rose Nolan, wasn’t most women. Born into north Appalachian's piedmont, she knew what she wanted, and it wasn’t to live in the backwoods of Alabama surrounded by poverty and ignorance. She didn't care what women were supposed to do or what others thought of her; she followed a single-minded purpose -- create opportunities for the things she desired. If getting what she wanted required manipulating men, then that was too bad for them. It wasn’t her fault men liked her, but she used it and used it well. In those days, women called her a Jezebel. She called them ignorant. She moved from moonshine to champagne, from rowboats to cruise ships, from foolish foothill suitors to society's elite, usually at the expense of others, even her own children.
Pat Conroy, my first cousin, and I spent time in our grandmother’s ‘big house’ in Atlanta. Pat and I traveled together to Piedmont, Alabama, to research our family history. I spent many summers visiting with the people who knew Margaret when she was young. Much later in life, our ailing grandmother came to live with my wife and me for more than a year. She regaled us with tales of her life. This book is a fictionalized account of her life. She lived the life as told, but just like her, the story has to have some lies and exaggerations, or it wouldn’t be our grandmother.
Eliska Hudakova is from Slovakia. Hired to work as a housekeeper for a demanding and bitter academic, there's a lot more to her and her past. Not quite the delicate nobody her boss assumes, she will not stand idle when push comes to shove.

As their realities begin to clash, tensions rise and the dynamic between the two changes. A game of cat-and-mouse ensues bringing their pasts into the equation, and raising the stakes at every turn of event.
But who will prevail?

A charming romantic comedy about three sisters who are struggling to keep the family wedding planning business afloat—all the while trying to write their own happily-ever-afters in the process.
All’s fair in love and business.
The de la Rosa family and their wedding planning business have been creating happily ever afters in the Washington, DC area for years, making even the most difficult bride’s day a fairytale. But when their parents announce their retirement, the sisters—Marisol, Janelyn, and Pearl—are determined to take over the business themselves.
But the sisters quickly discover that the wedding business isn’t all rings and roses. There are brides whose moods can change at the drop of a hat; grooms who want to control every part of the process; and couples who argue until their big day. As emotions run high, the de la Rosa sisters quickly realize one thing: even when disaster strikes—whether it’s a wardrobe malfunction or a snowmageddon in the middle of a spring wedding—they’ll always have each other.
Perfect for fans of the witty and engaging novels of Amy E. Reichert and Susan Mallery, The Key to Happily Ever After is a fresh romantic comedy that celebrates the crucial and profound power of sisterhood.
When life goes sideways, embracing the adventure is the fastest way to set things right.
One day I was just a widow facing the prospect of an empty nest, living a life that was anything but enchanted. The next, I had discovered my magical roots, and my rightful place as the Guardian of the portal between the Faery and Earth.
There was shock. And there was fear. After all, no one plans to start over at forty-five. I intended to grow old with my husband. I thought we’d live an ordinary life. So I’ll be damned if I’m going to waste this opportunity to live in a world I always thought was imaginary.
I’m half-witch, half-faery, and facing dangers as real as the ache in my bad knee. Ibuprofen and caffeine keep me going, and I could do this for the rest of my life. Whoever thinks my family home is an easy mark better take notice: the new Guardian in town isn’t going down without a fight.
After all, she’s already learned to let go of her simple existence and believe in the extraordinary power inside of her. What could possibly stop her now?
