Stealing Home Book Review:

A story about baseball, family, the American Dream, and the fight to turn Los Angeles into a big league city. Dodger Stadium is an American icon. But the story of how it came to be goes far beyond baseball. The hills that cradle the stadium were once home to three vibrant Mexican American communities. In the early 1950s, those communities were condemned to make way for a utopian public housing project. Then, in a remarkable turn, public housing in the city was defeated amidst a Red Scare conspiracy. Instead of getting their homes back, the remaining residents saw the city sell their land to Walter O'Malley, the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Now LA would be getting a different sort of utopian fantasy -- a glittering, ultra-modern stadium. But before Dodger Stadium could be built, the city would have to face down the neighborhood's families -- including one, the Aréchigas, who refused to yield their home. The ensuing confrontation captivated the nation - and the divisive outcome still echoes through Los Angeles today.

Stealing Home - a Con's Guide to Inheritance Theft Book Review:

When parents become unable to protect their assets due to infirmity or death, your inheritance is vulnerable. Usernames, passwords, certificates of title, deeds, identification cards, and physical possession is all that stands between your inheritance and cons. Parents plan for incapacity and death by going to an attorney for a will, trust, and power of attorney. While those instruments are useful for managing and transferring assets, they are useless in protecting them against theft. Instead, they create greater vulnerability because they must be carried out by someone else and are easily amended, revoked, and obtained by cons through manipulation and forgery. Cons hide in plain sight while planning strategies to steal your inheritance. They blend well because cons never look like cons. They look like your friends, relatives, and neighbors. They resemble your trusted accountant, investment advisor and minister. They are also perfect strangers. Once they decide to steal an inheritance, cons are relentless. They don't stop until everything is taken. This book brings awareness to inheritance theft. It also reveals six steps to wiping out an entire estate. Becoming familiar with those steps will help you identify cons, detect suspicious behavior, and take preventive action before it's too late.

Stealing Home Book Review:

Dylan McCormick is a talented man. An All-Star pro baseball player, he’s no stranger to success and fame. But as far as Maggie Jennings is concerned, he can get lost. Just because she’s the PR director for his new team, the Dallas Longhorns, doesn’t mean she wants anything to do with him. Ten years ago, Dylan broke her heart. Before he was famous, before he was baseball’s golden boy, when he was just the high school senior who she gave herself to—her heart and her body—only to have him throw it away. But the past has a way of refusing to stay buried, and Maggie finds herself face to face with Dylan and working with him. So maybe—just maybe—the answer isn’t running, but scratching the itch still burning between them to get him out of her system for good. Forever. Too bad Dylan has other plans, because what he wants most of all—more than breaking his hitless streak, more than recovering from his knee injury—is Maggie. This is a super steamy standalone second chance romance with a guaranteed HEA. High-heat, fun banter, and lots of baseball goodness with no cliffhanger. Happy reading!

Stealing Home Book Review:

Maddie Townsend might live in a town called Serenity, but there's been nothing calm or peaceful about her life since her marriage broke up. This stay-at-home mom has no job skills, an out-of-control sixteen-year-old son, a talkative fourteen-year-old who's suddenly gone silent, a six-year-old daughter whose heart is broken, an ex-husband whose younger girlfriend is expecting their baby and two best friends who think she's somehow qualified to help them open a fitness spa for women. But if Maddie is a tad on edge with all that on her plate, it's nothing compared to the chaos that ensues when she discovers that her son's baseball coach has feelings for her and the whole town disapproves. Maddie's faced a lot of challenges lately with strength and resolve, but Cal Maddox may turn out to be more than she can handle. Then again, he could just be the one man in all of South Carolina who can help her find serenity.

Stealing Home Book Review:

Four individuals, each living in haunted isolation, and each harboring a secret passion come together in this novel by Christy Award finalist Allison K. Pittman. It’s 1905 and the Chicago Cubs are banking on superstar Donald “Duke” Dennison’s golden arm to help them win the pennant. Only one thing stands between Duke and an unprecedented ten thousand dollar contract: alcohol. When sportswriter David Voyant whisks Duke to the one-horse town of Picksville, Missouri, so he can sober up in anonymity, Duke bides his time flirting with Ellie Jane Voyant, his unofficial chaperone, who would rather hide herself in the railway station ticket booth than face the echoes of childhood taunts. Ned Clovis, the feed store clerk, has secretly loved Ellie Jane since childhood, but he loves baseball and the Duke almost as much--until he notices Ellie Jane may be succumbing to the star’s charm. Then there’s Morris, a twelve-year-old Negro boy, whose only dream is to break away from Picksville. When Duke discovers his innate talent for throwing a baseball, Morris might just have found his way out. Providence brings them together. Tragedy threatens to tear them apart. Will love be enough to bring them home?

Stealing Home Book Review:

This book is about my mother's death and my search for the truth. I search for it as in my dreams I search to find the truth of her life and her death. Moreover, as we go on this journey we will encounter the numerous doors slammed in my face, and the whispers and the closed records beginning to be opened from the doctors who treated my mother. Mostly, we'll experience the hospital's lack of care, along with the foster home and the ambulance attendants' responsibility. I will show with the hospital's own records how sloppy, incomplete, and how deadly their treatment of my mother really was.This is not my story, but my mother's story, and like many other daughters and sons, who have gone through this experience, I want to learn the truth about my mother's life and death. This true story is difficult for me to write, as I was a thorn in my mother's side. Nevertheless, I feel I must write it for her, for the purpose of justice for her, and also justice for patients who become victims of hospitals and their deadly care.
