Dev Haskell 4 – 7 (Dev Haskell – Private Investigator Book 37) (affiliate link)
Dysfunctional, bumbling, crazy babe-magnet Dev Haskell, Private Investigator, has just landed the job of a lifetime. He’ll be the envy of every guy with a heartbeat: Dev is hired to provide security for a team of beautiful English roller derby stars (with stage names like Harlotte Davidson and Helen Killer). Though he’d rather be standing guard in the shower room, he finds himself in a world of trouble when he’s mistaken for the stalker-turned-killer he’s been tracking.
With an attorney who drinks too much and a team of females ready to kill him, Dev must prove his innocence, all the while finding the real killer and protecting himself against the wiles of yet another irresistible and dangerous woman.
P. I. Apprentice (Dev Haskell – Private Investigator Book 34) (affiliate link)
Private Investigator Dev Haskell is visited by Melissa Carter, the daughter of a former friend. Both her parents were killed in a hit-and-run ‘accident’ a few years earlier. She has strong doubts it was an accident and asks Dev to investigate. He grudgingly takes on the case, but the more he learns the more he’s convinced Melissa is on to something.
At the same time, Dev is summoned by local crime Lord Tubby Gustafson. Turns out Tubby would like a favor and ‘No’ is not an option. Dev takes on Tubby’s nephew, Erik, as an apprentice and learns, to his surprise, that Erik is actually a pretty nice guy and a very hard worker. That’s good because the hit-and-run investigation quickly turns into an exploration of the darker side of a local property mogul, and Dev and Erik are going to need all the help they can get.

Do you love your partner enough to share them with someone else?
This is the question facing Laura when a group of close friends, all neighbours living on the same street, decide one night to put their keys in a bowl and swap partners.
No one is obliged to do anything but the rules state that what does happen remains under wraps.
Not everyone is keen on the idea, though Laura’s husband certainly is, but group pressure mixed with alcohol means they run with it.
This will set off a chain of jaw-dropping events that will change all their lives forever.
If you are looking for a suspenseful domestic thriller that will keep you guessing, you’ve found it!
The Wedding Favor (Your Invitation to Romance Book 1) (affiliate link)
Ava McKenna longs to escape her painful past. Finally selling her family home to make a clean break, she’s surprised when the mystery buyer extends a cash offer in exchange for a dinner date. But when the rendezvous reveals a handsome face from her childhood, the stirrings of an irresistible attraction begin again.
Mateo Ortega’s heart is breaking. Desperate to grant his dying grandfather’s final wish by heading toward the altar, he seeks out a reunion with the girl he never forgot. And he begs for her helping hand in pulling off a compassionate ruse by pretending to be his fiancée.
Trying to repay kindness from years ago but not wanting to lie, Ava proposes a compromise that could come back to hurt her. And as Mateo and his bride-to-be are swept up in whirlwind wedding plans, his future happiness seems more and more uncertain.
Can a hasty hoax clear the way for the beginning of forever?
Happiness is not the belief that we don’t need to change; it is the realization that we can.
Our most commonly held formula for success is broken. Conventional wisdom holds that once we succeed, we’ll be happy; that once we get that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But the science reveals this formula to be backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around.
Research shows that happy employees are more productive, more creative, and better problem solvers than their unhappy peers. And positive people are significantly healthier and less stressed and enjoy deeper social interaction than the less positive people around them.
The Greatest Salesman in the World (affiliate link)
“Every sales manager should read The Greatest Salesman in the World. It is a book to keep at the bedside, or on the living room table—a book to dip into as needed, to browse in now and then, to enjoy in small stimulating portions. It is a book for the hours and for the years, a book to turn to over and over again, as to a friend, a book of moral, spiritual and ethical guidance, an unfailing source of comfort and inspiration.”—Lester J. Bradshaw, Jr., Former Dean, Dale Carnegie Institute of Effective Speaking & Human Relations
“I have read almost every book that has ever been written on salesmanship, but I think Og Mandino has captured all of them in The Greatest Salesman in the World. No one who follows these principles will ever fail as a salesman, and no one will ever be truly great without them; but, the author has done more than present the principles—he has woven them into the fabric of one of the most fascinating stories I have ever read.”—Paul J. Meyer, President of Success Motivation Institute, Inc.

The Hamilton Affair: A Novel (affiliate link)
Set against the dramatic backdrop of the American Revolution, and featuring a cast of legendary characters, The Hamilton Affair tells the sweeping, tumultuous, true story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler, from passionate and tender beginnings of their romance to his fateful duel on the banks of the Hudson River.
Hamilton was a bastard and orphan, raised in the Caribbean and desperate for legitimacy, who became one of the American Revolution’s most dashing–and improbable–heroes. Admired by George Washington, scorned by Thomas Jefferson, Hamilton was a lightning rod: the most controversial leader of the new nation. Elizabeth was the wealthy, beautiful, adventurous daughter of the respectable Schuyler clan–and a pioneering advocate for women. Together, the unlikely couple braved the dangers of war, the perils of seduction, the anguish of infidelity, and the scourge of partisanship that menaced their family and the country itself.
