http://amzn.to/1TLWGUg2 Days 'Til Sundae
by Heather Muzik
PRICE: FREE
At thirty-four, Catherine Hemmings has it all—a NYC walk-up that’s relatively free of crime and steps away from a great slice of pizza, credit card balances with the full closet and finance charges to match, still-happily-married parents with a screw loose, a younger brother with more years of marriage experience under his belt than she has continuous dating time, and friends hell-bent on setting her up with anyone but her type of guy… What more could a girl want?

The answer... a sundae.

Catherine’s parents are cleaning out her childhood home and moving to Wyoming on a lark. To make matters worse, many of the treasures she saved over the years are MIA. When she stumbles upon one of her favorite old toys, not in the attic where it’s supposed to be, but in an online auction, she declares all-out war—a bidding war—only to lose in the final seconds. But Cat isn’t ready to let go…

Her mission is simple: a well-planned, perfectly executed, two-day trip to reclaim her property from the winning bidder.

What could possibly go wrong?

Follow Catherine on a chick-lit style comic romp to the “wilds” of Minnesota, where she ends up tailing Joel “Fynn” Trager (a man she wants to kick, bite, and lick all at the same time). She resorts to lies, bribes, and criminal activity to get what she wants, only to find herself baring it all along the way—the good, the bad, and the truly ridiculous. Maybe her mother is right when she says, “Life is real, not ideal.” Her mother also says that one should always pack an extra change of clothes… perhaps she should have paid more attention when she was growing up.

Now, with the help of her friends and man’s best friend, Cat might get what she’s after, or she might just get more than she bargained for...

Cammie Laroux is back in Alabama—again.

Dragged back to her small town to help her mother recover from surgery while rescuing the family event planning business should be a cinch. Even for a disgraced television chef, right? Wrong.

Among the many secrets Cammie’s family’s been hiding is the fact that their historic home is falling down. Oh, and the man hired to restore the house, Grey Harrison, is the same high school and college love of her life who thrashed her heart and dreams ten years ago. Yeah, that guy.

Grey, a widower with a young daughter, has never stopped loving Cammie, and when they are face to face once again, the chemistry is off the charts. Cammie may be in full-blown denial, but letting go is no longer in Grey’s vocabulary, even when winning Cammie’s forgiveness and renovating their love may seem like an impossible build even for a master architect and carpenter.

As Cammie finds herself forgetting all the reasons she can’t trust Grey or love again, he finds himself remembering all the reasons he wants her to stay with him in Alabama… forever.

But then a woman walks into my life…it’s always a woman, right?

She was once a notorious hacker, now a ruthless CEO of one of the hottest social media corporations in the world. We’re both broken, but maybe together we can find a way to fix what no longer works.

Anna, therefore, makes a life-changing decision; she is going to accept the proposal of the next suitor to ask!

Lane Mason is an average aristocrat; absorbed in life in general, and content with his status in society. Amid a frequently occurring moment of self-loathing, Lane shockingly discovers his feelings for Anna. Now armed with the awareness of his love for Anna, Lane decides to perpetrate a devilishly clever scheme. He will pay actors to abduct the two of them in order to give Anna an adventure like the ones she reads in her treasured books.

White Dresses: A Memoir of Love and Secrets, Mothers and Daughters
by Mary Pflum Peterson
PRICE: $0.99
In this riveting, poignant memoir of  three generations of women and the white dresses that adorned them—television producer Mary Pflum Peterson recounts a journey through loss and redemption, and her battle to rescue her mother, a former nun, from compulsive hoarding.
As a successful television journalist at Good Morning America, Mary Pflum is known as a polished and highly organized producer. It’s a persona at odds with her tortured childhood, where she watched her emotionally vulnerable mother fill their house with teetering piles of assorted “treasures.” But one thing has always united mother and daughter—their love of white dresses. From the dress worn by Mary’s mother when she became a nun and married Jesus, to the wedding gown she donned years later, to the special nightshirts she gifted Mary after the birth of her children, to graduation dresses and christening gowns, these white dresses embodied hope and new beginnings.
After her mother’s sudden death in 2010, Mary digs deep to understand the events that led to Anne’s unraveling. At twenty-one, Anne entered a convent, committed to a life of prayer and helping others. But lengthy periods of enforced fasting, isolation from her beloved students, and constant humiliation eventually drove her to flee the convent almost a decade later. Hoping to find new purpose as a wife and mother, Anne instead married an abusive, closeted gay man—their eventual divorce another sign of her failure.
Anne retreats into chaos. By the time Mary is ten, their house is cluttered with broken appliances and stacks of unopened mail. Anne promises but fails to clean up for Mary’s high school graduation party, where Mary is being honored as her school’s valedictorian, causing her perfectionist daughter’s fear and shame to grow in tandem with the heaps upon heaps of junk. In spite of everything, their bond endures. Through the white dresses, pivotal events in their lives are celebrated, even as Mary tries in vain to save Anne from herself.
Unflinchingly honest, insightful, and compelling, White Dresses is a beautiful, powerful story—and a reminder of the unbreakable bonds between mothers and daughters.
