A young prostitute lies dead in a Cardiff squat. Her six-year-old lies dead beside her. It looks like an ordinary murder scene . . . except that a millionaire’s platinum bank card lies among the debris. How did it come to be there? And is there more to this case than meets the eye?

As she starts to follow up the clue left by that platinum bank card, she finds the disturbing hints that suggest a truly appalling crime has been committed – and release the demons of her own dark past.

DESCRIPTION:

When stress comes knocking, we eat. When we’re celebrating, we eat. When we’re happy, sad, angry, bored, or relaxed, we eat. Whether we feel good about our bodies or loathe what we see in the mirror, we eat. And often, we hate ourselves for it.

Diets don’t work. “No pain, no gain” tactics are emotionally and physically draining and ineffective, and they often employ shame and guilt–two excellent motivators for comfort eating.

Food is the ultimate double-crosser. It provides pleasure and pain in equal measure, but unlike people, you can’t break up with food. Instead, you need to change how you think and relate to food so you reap the positives without letting it drive you to distraction.

Healthy living strategist and personal coach Lisa Lewtan has the answer: an honest exploration of your relationship with food. Through mindfulness exercises and self-examination, you’ll learn to identify the chemical and emotional triggers that encourage you to eat and how to live a life where food strengthens, rather than weakens.

Busy, Stressed, and Food Obsessed! offers a chance to transform your frenemy into a true friend. You deserve a healthy and delicious relationship with the food you eat.

“A rich and powerful book which provides a roadmap to understanding yourself and your body.” — Christine Schuster, President & CEO, Emerson Hospital

“A simple, readable format that is a valuable tool for anyone who is eager to do the work to transform their life!” –Marcy Balter, Board Chair, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health

“Not just another diet. It is an easy to read guide for helping people find their own path to a healthy lifestyle.” –Rachel A. Haims, MD, Instructor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

Mark Mallon has a lot of friction in his life. He is an abrasive man and an inspired writer. He is profane; he is profound. Mallon isn’t the man he could have been. He’s not living with loss; he’s living as less. How will Mallon thrive? He’ll keep you posted. Facebook. Blog. Twitter. He posts. Sex. Souls. Satire. Synchronicity. Mallon writes about them all. Mark Mallon posts velocity waves from a male point of view.

Women love Mark Mallon. He talks to them. He writes about them. He sleeps with them. He falls in love with them. He has an easy way with them. But Mallon is not an easy man.

Mallon has a lot of women in his life. Brady is an intelligent woman and a passionate attorney. She craves sex, cigarettes, and Mark Mallon. Kaitlyn is a headstrong woman carving a career in medicine. She’s clinical everywhere except his bed. Ellen is an intense woman. The line between erotic and neurotic is narrow.

Men love Mark Mallon. He talks to them. He writes about them. He drinks with them. He competes with them. He’s not always easy with them.

- If you want a light read that is entertaining and informative without being dry, this is the book you should read. I have enjoyed and laughed my way through it and am happy to recommend it to others. (Luciann Smith)

- Loved this book !!! Spend many hours reading about a little of this and a little of that. Highly recommend this item. many times over… (Harry Murdock)

- I got this book for my Kindle because I like trivia and fun facts kind of stuff but this book is all that and more. I’ve only read about 10% of it so far but it’s great – not just the same old drivel that fills lots of similar books but I have also never laughed so hard in a long time. Written in an easygoing, fun style, you can read a lot or a little and get enjoyment out of it every time! (Greg Walz)

- This is actually a GREAT read!! I did not want to stop reading it. I learned lots of info…..some useless and some not….but all very interesting!!!! (Jill A Coy)

- A really good book. Kept me reading the whole time with interesting facts. Learned a lot and also laughed a lot! (Kaitlyn O’Hara)

- “The Big Book of Interesting Stuff” is jam-packed full of short (with few exceptions) interesting (with even fewer exceptions) and often ironic factoids, memes, jokes, and titillating tidbits. [...] It’s worth twice the price he requests for it. My bride and I spent several evenings sharing sections of the book with one another and my own “copy” of the text has more highlights in it than a Michael Jordan NBA video. (Bruce Barker)

Conjuring “a sense of place he’s plainly honed firsthand in below-zero prairie” (Kirkus Reviews), Krueger brilliantly evokes northern Minnesota’s lake country—and reveals the dark side of its snow-covered landscape.

Part Irish, part Anishinaabe Indian, Corcoran “Cork” O’Connor is the former sheriff of Aurora, Minnesota. Embittered by his “former” status, and the marital meltdown that has separated him from his children, Cork gets by on heavy doses of caffeine, nicotine, and guilt. Once a cop on Chicago’s South Side, there’s not much that can shock him. But when the town’s judge is brutally murdered, and a young Eagle Scout is reported missing, Cork takes on a mind-jolting case of conspiracy, corruption, and scandal.

As a lakeside blizzard buries Aurora, Cork must dig out the truth among town officials who seem dead-set on stopping his investigation in its tracks. But even Cork freezes up when faced with the harshest enemy of all: a small-town secret that hits painfully close to home.

For overprotective parent Alyson Ward, any time her daughter, Lyla, is out of sight is reason to panic. So it’s a big step for her when she lets Lyla attend a sleepover at her cousin’s house. Comforted by the knowledge that her sister, Tricia, is the chaperone, Alyson does the one thing she never thought possible: she lets go and trusts that her daughter will be safe.

But Alyson’s sense of peace is short lived. When Lyla comes home the next morning, she reveals something that could tear apart not only their family but also the entire community. Now, Alyson and Tricia must confront their painful shared past as they come together to help a little girl who they fear might be harboring terrible secrets similar to their own. Will the sisters be strong enough to face their demons in order to protect the child, even if it means telling their most private truths?

DESCRIPTION:

People magazine included The Restaurant Critic’s Wife on their Great New Fiction list and hailed it as “thoroughly entertaining.”

Lila Soto has a master’s degree that’s gathering dust, a work-obsessed husband, two kids, and lots of questions about how exactly she ended up here.

In their new city of Philadelphia, Lila’s husband, Sam, takes his job as a restaurant critic a little too seriously. To protect his professional credibility, he’s determined to remain anonymous. Soon his preoccupation with anonymity takes over their lives as he tries to limit the family’s contact with anyone who might have ties to the foodie world. Meanwhile, Lila craves adult conversation and some relief from the constraints of her homemaker role. With her patience wearing thin, she begins to question everything: her decision to get pregnant again, her break from her career, her marriage–even if leaving her ex-boyfriend was the right thing to do. As Sam becomes more and more fixated on keeping his identity secret, Lila begins to wonder if her own identity has completely disappeared–and what it will take to get it back.
