Christmas from the Heart Book Review:

USA TODAY bestselling author Sheila Roberts takes readers to the charming, snowbound town of Pine River in this irresistible holiday romance. Sometimes you need to look beyond the big picture to see what really matters Olivia Berg’s charity, Christmas from the Heart, has helped generations of families in need in Pine River, Washington, but this year might be the end of the road. Hightower Enterprises, one of their biggest donors since way back when Olivia’s grandmother ran the charity, has been taken over by Ebenezer Scrooge the Second, aka CFO Guy Hightower, and he’s declared there will be no more money coming to Christmas from the Heart. Guy is simply being practical. Hightower Enterprises needs to tighten its belt, and when you don’t have money to spare, you don’t have money to share. You’d think even the pushy Olivia Berg could understand that. With charitable donations dwindling, Olivia’s Christmas budget depends on Hightower’s contribution. She’s focused her whole life on helping this small town, even putting her love life on hold to support her mission. When Guy’s Maserati breaks down at the edge of the Cascade foothills, he’s relieved to be rescued by a pretty young woman who drives him to the nearby town of Pine River. Until he realizes his rescuer is none other than Olivia Berg. What’s a Scrooge to do? Plug his nose and eat fruitcake and hope she doesn’t learn his true identity before he can get out of town. What could go wrong?

She’s barely able to support herself and her teenage daughter, but now her deadbeat artist ex is hitting her up for spousal support…and then spending it on his “other” woman. Still, as her mother always says, every storm brings a rainbow. And when she gets a very unexpected gift from her great-aunt Edie, things seem to be taking a turn for the better. Aging Aunt Edie is finding it difficult to keep up her business running The Driftwood Inn, so she invites Jenna to come live with her and run the place.

Aunt Edie is confident they can return it to its former glory, though Jenna feels like she’s jumped from the proverbial frying pan into the beach fire. But who knows? With the help of her new friends and a couple of handsome citizens, perhaps that rainbow is on the horizon after all. Because, no matter what, life is always good at the beach.

Winter at the Beach Book Review:

USA TODAY bestselling author Sheila Roberts takes readers on a wintry trip to the harbor in her latest holiday novel… The town of Moonlight Harbor needs to convince tourists that the beach is still the place to be—even when the sunshine goes south for the winter. Jenna Jones, new proprietor of The Driftwood Inn, has the perfect idea: a holiday festival called Seaside with Santa. Jenna is happy to throw herself into planning the event. With all the decorating, preparation and extra reservations at the inn because of the festival—and with two wonderful but very different men hoping to claim more of her time and her heart—Jenna is busy. Busy, but happy. Even with her troublesome ex in the picture, life feels as close to perfect as she’s ever known. Until the weather turns her festival into a farce. Suddenly Mother Nature is not only raining on Jenna’s parade, the old bat’s trying to blow the floats and their princesses out to sea. Soon everyone is without power and the road out of town is blocked. And Jenna has a full motel. After the generator conks out, she’s not so sure she and her guests will make it through to the New Year in one piece. But with a little pulling together and a lot of holiday spirit, everyone might find that life—and Christmas—is always good at the beach.

Newport Harbor House Book Review:

A heart-warming beach read about the bonds of friends and family--and who is really there for you when you need them. Jen Watson can't believe this trip might be her last at the family beach house in Newport. She finally has a summer all to herself with her kids grown and gone and she's been waiting for this for decades--she's earned it after raising two boys on her own. Now that she's an empty-nester, the summer is a long stretch of a little bit of work and a lot of fun with her two best friends. They've all raised their kids on the beach, taught them how to swim in the harbor and made sandcastles until well after the sun set. And now it's their turn. A summer project of fixing up the old house sounds fun until things go south. Peeling paint is one thing, but the house is old and needs a little more than just a patch here and there. The rest of the family doesn't want to sink money into any repairs, and Jen and her friends put their heads together to come up with a plan. Faith is teaching summer school and Carrie has her own clinic, but they're ready with hammers, nails and paintbrushes to do what's needed to keep the house in the family--and create even more memories, no matter what it takes. Newport Harbor House is book one on the Newport Beach series, a heart-warming series set in Newport Beach where the bonds of family and friends run deep.

We are lucky. For most of us, famine, plague, economic depression, and other life-threatening catastrophes are the stuff of history books.

When we crack, we shatter. We are turning into an army of porcelain dolls. A rude email from the boss means calling in sick. Only two likes on our post means we don’t have friends. Cell phones show us we’re never good enough. Yesterday’s butterflies are tomorrow’s panic attacks. Record numbers of students have clinical anxiety. And what about depression, loneliness, and suicide? All rising! What do we desperately need to learn? RESILIENCE. And we need to learn it fast. Read You Are Awesome to learn: • The single word that keeps your options open after failure • What every commencement speech gets wrong • 3 ways to dramatically accelerate your ability to learn and adapt • The 2-minute morning practice that helps eliminate worry • Why you need an Untouchable Day (and how to get one) • and much, much more...

Books this ingenious don't come along very often.' Michael Connelly 'Quite simply deserves to be HUGE. If you read a thriller as good this year, it's only because you've read this one twice.' Mark Billingham 'Tore through this between dusk and dawn. Absolute 5-star cracker from Steve Cavanagh, who's gotta be among top legal thriller writers out there nowadays. A powerhouse of a book that's much more than its high-concept hook.' Craig Sisterson 'Wow! This book is friggin' awesome! Utterly immersive.' Emma Kavanagh 'Fantastically gripping? Guilty as charged!' Angela Clarke 'An absolute cracker.' Susi Holliday 'Guilty of thrills, twists, and expertly manipulating the reader.' Mason Cross 'An absolute rollercoaster of a read. Thrilling.'
