From New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown comes a funny heartache of a novel about overcoming the past, confronting the future, and defying all expectations. Everyone is talking about Jennie Sue Baker and the mess she made of her life in New York. The former high school queen bee - and wealthy darling of Bloom, Texas - has returned home after all these years, riding on a common bus and bearing two bounced alimony checks. In a town that thrives on gossip, Jennie’s fall from grace has shamed her mother, set the town buzzing, and caused old, jealous enemies to whisper in delight. They say she’s taken a job as a housekeeper, gotten a garage apartment, and might be crushing on Rick Lawson, a simple farmer with modest dreams. As romance starts to bud, Jennie relishes what it means to follow her heart, find real new friends, and finally be herself - regardless of all the lying town chatter. But fate has another twist in store. Rumor has it that Jennie now stands to lose what matters most…unless she can convince Rick of one true thing - and that’s love. 1. Language: English.

Have you ever found yourself thinking your way into a tangle of fret, frustration, or gloom? And then something small - a few kind words, the sun glancing through the clouds, a warm cup of tea - gave you a welcome pause from all your inner chatter? With Making Friends with Your Mind, that´s what Pema Chödrön helps us to do, not by chance but with our full intention: to stop fighting with our thoughts and reopen ourselves to wonder as naturally as we breathe. The Buddha saw that the human experience is full of drama: confusion and conviction, joy and sorrow, success and failure - and that our minds love to amplify all of it. ´´We decide somebody or something is a certain way,´´ muses Pema Chödrön, ´´and then that judgment gets frozen and fixated, long after things change. And things always change, right?´´ In these free-spirited sessions, Ani Pema helps you to bring awareness to those inflexible thoughts and sticking points. Through meditations, daily practices, and the kind of simple pointers that can change our lives, you´ll learn that it is entirely possible to return to the flow and freedom of your experiences - and to find your way each day closer to a place of unconditional friendliness with yourself and with those in need. 1.

Whatever you do, don’t drink the water. When Cora Holman’s mother dies, she assumes the inevitable: that her mother overdosed on the painkillers she’d been taking for years. So she’s shocked to learn that her mother and a neighbor both died of a brain aneurysm the same night. When Cora and other neighborhood teens become ill with a mysterious flu, and government-type strangers arrive in her small town, they all fear the unthinkable - a terrorist attack. Meanwhile, a world away in Pakistan, a 16-year-old computer genius named Shahzad is working as a virtual spy. He’s alarmed to see an influx of chatter about a sub-stance called Red Vinegar that will, as he reads, ´´lead to many deaths in Colony One.” Can Shahzad sift through the babble of the chat room, find the location of the attack, and warn the victims in time? And if so, at what cost to him?

Carol Plum-Ucci is the author of numerous novels for teens, including The Body of Christopher Creed, a Michael L.

Warning: This short erotic romance audiobook contains very strong language and steamy adult entertainment. Strictly for adults 18+. Excerpt: The two women went into the restaurant and ordered their food. While they were waiting, Sara began to chatter about her brothers. This was a frequent topic of conversation these days. Sara turned her bitching to the poor use of the Champagne Room. ´´The Champagne Room is a goldmine. ´´This friend of mine has a sister who works there sometimes, and she told her about the parties they have there. Very special. And your brothers charge for the location and the discretion.´´ Selena went on to describe this party that her friend´s sister worked at and how it involved some pretty special exotic dancers. This is how it happened that Sara and Selena were having a gourmet lasagna dinner at the Champagne Room with Brent and his friend Brian. They began with a small salad and small talk. ´´So, what kind of parties do you like?´´ Before Sara could blurt out an answer, Selena spoke up ´´She exaggerates that a little bit. She really means that she enjoys meeting new people and having adventures.´´ Brent picked up Sara´s hand and held it with both of his. He stared directly into her eyes and said, ´´I´d like that.´´ ´´Now for the champagne,´´ Brent said. He poured four flutes of the champagne and said, ´´This is our champagne room, I guess you could say.´´ He raised his glass in a toast, ´´To a passionate weekend.´´ Enjoy 1. Language: English.
