First in the Parry Pretty and the Eight Realms series. From Amazon:
"Someone has opened the Slipstream, causing time to repeat a single day over and over again. As the mysterious events of the day begin to unfold, Parry Pretty discovers the heart-stopping reason why only she can close the Slipstream. The only problem is the stubborn girl refuses to believe that the Slipstream even exists. Her logical brain ignores the fact that she continues to relive the same day over and over again, even though she has experienced déjà vu several times. Her scientific mind can’t be convinced that she continues to wake up in different realms, and her practical nature certainly won’t accept the fact that there is more than one realm in the world (eight to be exact). But all that is about to change when Parry finds herself chasing after a mysterious stranger through windows that lead to new and wondrous lands, where she discovers a greater and darker secret that could alter her destiny, and the fate of all the realms, forever."

From Amazon:
"It's 1988, and Charlie Woodchuck is the most minor of niners. At thirteen, she's the youngest girl at Snowy Cove High School, and so clueless, she wore leg warmers and acid-wash jeans on her first day. Big mistake! Almost as big a mistake as signing up for a boys-only shop class. Doy.

Just when she thinks the first week of high school can't get any more weird, Charlie discovers she may be adopted. According to her Science textbook, her eyes should be blue, not brown.

Now the girl with the boy's name will have to use her detective skills to uncover the mystery of her identity. She'll need the help of best friend Stacy, expert blackmailer, and new friend Ross, expert class clown.

Before the year ends, Charlie will face down the biggest bullies of all: the all-powerful members of Snowy Cove's School Board. The Board doesn't like what Charlie's been up to, and they're all out of doughnuts.

First in the Life in Saltwater City series. From Goodreads:
"There’s one thing Maddie finds more tempting than red velvet cake: her coworker, Drew. All it takes is one of his sly winks or a playful hip-check by the cooler, and she’s incinerating the cookies. Her boyfriend would not approve.

When a reality TV crew descends upon the bakery, her simple summer job gets even more complicated. Maddie could become the Bakery Network’s next breakout star, if she can handle the heat of being cast as a show villain. Drew has an alternate idea: run away from everything, with him and his sexy tousled hair. She decides to take the leap, but when she finds out Drew’s been hiding a shocking secret, Maddie looks down at her packed suitcase and takes a moment to think. Should she fly off to Australia with a guy she hardly knows, or should she pick up her suitcase and hit him with it?
