Lynn Painter Synopses: Better Than the Movies is a standalone novel by Lynn Painter. Eternal daydreamer Liz Buxbaum has carried a torch for Michael for as long as she can remember. Unfortunately, her once distant and unattainable crush has never really noticed her, especially before he moved away. But with Michael’s return to town, Liz is determined to make him see her and maybe even secure him as her prom date. The catch? She’ll have to form an unlikely friendship with Wes Bennett.

Wes, the infuriatingly attractive boy next door, might seem like the ideal character for a romantic comedy, but he’s been a thorn in Liz’s side since their childhood. Pranks involving frogs and beheaded garden gnomes do not exactly scream “prom date material.” Yet, against all odds, Wes and Michael seem to hit it off, making Wes Liz’s ticket to Michael’s attention.

As Liz and Wes concoct plans to make Michael notice her and create that magical prom moment, something unexpected happens. Liz discovers that she genuinely enjoys Wes’s company. As their bond deepens, she’s forced to reconsider everything she thought she knew about love and reevaluate her own preconceived notions of what “Happily Ever After” truly means.

Accidentally Amy by Lynn Painter is a standalone title. Isabella Shay is known for her honesty, but when she’s rushing to her first day at a dream job and the barista repeatedly calls for “Amy” without a response, she does the unthinkable.

Izzy takes the Pumpkin Spice Latte that she actually ordered and paid for, except that it’s waiting for her much farther down the line. In a moment of panic, she mumbles “I’m Amy” and claims the cup as her own. But her impromptu decision takes an unexpected turn when she turns around and collides with a stunningly handsome man, spilling the PSL all over his pristine GQ attire. Their encounter becomes the ultimate meet-cute, with sparks flying and a promising connection forming. However, things take a complicated twist when he casually says, “See you tomorrow, Amy.”

Uh-oh, Izzy thinks. She’ll definitely have to clear up the confusion tomorrow.

But when she arrives at her new office and meets the Vice President of her department, she’s astounded to discover that the man from Starbucks is none other than Blake Phillips – the charming barista turned arrogant colleague. He was delightful to “Amy,” but he’s an absolute grump when it comes to Izzy, who can’t help but find her accidental introduction amusing.

Get ready for a heartwarming story filled with chance encounters, the classic grumpy/sunshine dynamic, and the blossoming of a friends-to-lovers relationship. This is the tale of Accidentally Amy.
