Wild Irish Rose (The Merriams Book 1) (paid link)
Trevor Merriam doesn’t like being ordered around by his older brother, much less to a sleepy Irish village to complete a business deal for their family company.
Worse: the owner of the land he needs to buy doesn’t want him there. In fact, Becca O’Neill loathes him so much that she won’t even serve him the award-winning scones her famed Wild Irish Rose Bed and Breakfast is known for.
Even worse than that (and not getting scones is bad in Trevor’s book): Becca has an ornery cat, a mischievous Irish setter, and a lovesick alpaca that delights in chasing him around. Then there’s the woman herself.

How to stay healthy and boost immunity with #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s no-nonsense, results-driven nutrition plan.
As a family physician for over 30 years and #1 New York Times bestselling author Joel Fuhrman, M.D. will tell you that doctors and medications cannot grant you excellent health or protection from disease and suffering. The most effective health-care is proper self-care and that starts with changing the way we eat.
Eat for Life delivers a science-backed nutrition-based program that prevents and even reverses most medical problems within three to six months. This is a bold claim but the science and the tens of thousands who have tried this approach back it up.
Think Like a Chef: A Cookbook (paid link)
With Think Like a Chef, Tom Colicchio has created a new kind of cookbook. Rather than list a series of restaurant recipes, he uses simple steps to deconstruct a chef’s creative process, making it easily available to any home cook.
He starts with techniques: What’s roasting, for example, and how do you do it in the oven or on top of the stove? He also gets you comfortable with braising, sautéing, and making stocks and sauces. Next he introduces simple “ingredients” — roasted tomatoes, say, or braised artichokes — and tells you how to use them in a variety of ways. So those easy roasted tomatoes may be turned into anything from a vinaigrette to a caramelized tomato tart, with many delicious options in between.
What if the real key to a richer and more fulfilling career was not to create and scale a new start-up, but rather, to be able to work for yourself, determine your own hours, and become a (highly profitable) and sustainable company of one? Suppose the better—and smarter—solution is simply to remain small? This book explains how to do just that.
Company of One is a refreshingly new approach centered on staying small and avoiding growth, for any size business. Not as a freelancer who only gets paid on a per piece basis, and not as an entrepreneurial start-up that wants to scale as soon as possible, but as a small business that is deliberately committed to staying that way.
The Crack-Up (paid link)
A self-portrait of a great writer ‘s rise and fall, intensely personal and etched with Fitzgerald’s signature blend of romance and realism.
The Crack-Up tells the story of Fitzgerald’s sudden descent at the age of thirty-nine from glamorous success to empty despair, and his determined recovery. Compiled and edited by Edmund Wilson shortly after F. Scott Fitzgerald’s death, this revealing collection of his essays—as well as letters to and from Gertrude Stein, Edith Wharton, T.S. Eliot, John Dos Passos—tells of a man with charm and talent to burn, whose gaiety and genius made him a living symbol of the Jazz Age, and whose recklessness brought him grief and loss. “Fitzgerald’s physical and spiritual exhaustion is described brilliantly,” noted The New York Review of Books: “the essays are amazing for the candor.”
With the voice of a close friend, this clever and witty guide from bestselling duo Trisha Ashworth and Amy Nobile takes women through the new and sometimes challenging midlife phase, with chapters including:
– Redefining what beauty means after age 40… and that there is beauty after age 40!
– How to care for yourself when you’re also caring for growing children and aging parents
– Navigating midlife relationships and dating (did someone say dating apps??)
– Discovering new career paths and new meaning in your life
Whether married, single, widowed, divorced, with children or without, at some point women inevitably ask the question, “What’s next for me?” Here, they will find a road map for how to embrace and thrive in this new phase of life.
