Extraordinary Adventures (St. Martin's Press, May 30) by Daniel Wallace
Agency: ICM Partners

The Big Fish author brings whimsy and a dash of fantasy to the tale of a 34-year-old loner who wins an all-expenses-paid Florida beachside vacation. But the offer is only for couples, so the wallflower must step out of his comfort zone to find a date in 79 days.

The Identicals (Little Brown, June 13) by  Elin Hilderbrand
Agency: Inkwell Management

Hilderbrand's 20-plus novels have become go-to beach reads (literally, thanks to their Nantucket settings). This one, which hit No. 2 on The New York Times list, is a grown-up Parent Trap tale about 30-something twins, raised separately, who don't get along.
