Steamy romance: I can’t personally vouch for this title because Amazon declined to offer a Look Inside at its contents. Hmmm. Bestselling novelist Jackson Ford and his irresistible new editor, Ellie Parker, can’t agree on a thing except for their intense attraction to each other.

Noël Wells in “Mr. Roosevelt.” (Courtesy of Paladin)
After runs on “SNL” and “Master of None,” Noël Wells scores big as the writer, director and star of this offbeat comedy. “Mr. Roosevelt” is the name of a beloved cat whose hospitalization prompts Wells’s comedian character to travel from LA to her former home in Austin, Texas, where her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend have been taking care of it. It’s pretty funny—but also gets serious about the business of making people laugh.
