➤ If you en­joy reading Rachael Trea­sure and Rachael Johns, you’ll fall in love with The Paris Wed­ding ,a de­li­ciously poignant story about fam­ily and friends, and love lost and found.

Ten years ago, Rachael West chose not to move to Syd­ney with high-school sweet­heart Matthew. In­stead she stayed on the fam­ily wheat farm, car­ing for her se­ri­ously ill mother and let­ting go of her dreams.

Now, Matthew is mar­ry­ing some­one else. And Rachael is in­vited to the wed­ding, a lav­ish af­fair in Paris, cour­tesy of the flam­boy­ant fam­ily of Matthew’s fi­ancee — a once-in-a-life­time cel­e­bra­tion at some­one else’s ex­pense in Europe’s most ro­man­tic city.

She is ut­terly un­pre­pared for what the week brings. Friend­ships will be up­ended, se­crets will be re­vealed and, on the eve of the wed­ding, Rachael is faced with an im­pos­si­ble dilemma — should she give up on the prom­ise of love or de­stroy another woman’s life for a chance at hap­pi­ness?

The Paris Wed­ding is writ­ten by Char­lotte Nash and pub­lished by Ha­chette Australia, RRP $29.99. ➤ The Fu­tures: A New York Love Story is a story of a re­la­tion­ship that falls apart. A story of heart­break and be­trayal.

It is the story of a young cou­ple who grad­u­ate from Yale in 2008, just as the fi­nan­cial cri­sis be­gins and there are no jobs for grad­u­ates.

It is a story of their new start to­gether in New York City and their ten­ta­tive first steps into adult­hood.

It is a story of grow­ing up and tak­ing chances and mak­ing ter­ri­ble mis­takes. This is Evan and Ju­lia’s story. This is a love story.

The Fu­tures: A New York Love Story is writ­ten by Anna Pi­to­niak and pub­lished by Pen­guin Ran­dom House Australia, RRP $32.99.
