Life's a Beach (Complimentary Edition) by Claire Cook http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Lifes-a-Beach-Complimentary-Edition/Claire-Cook/e/9781401342760
From the author of BEST STAGED PLANS comes a limited-time offer: LIFE’ S A BEACH, COMPLIMENTARY EDITION This eBook includes a special preview chapter of BEST STAGED PLANS, available 6/7/2011 wherever books are sold. About LIFE’ S A BEACH: By the bestselling author of Must Love Dogs, the story of two grown-up sisters who fight like cats and dogs -- but call each other at least twice a day Luckily for her legions of fans, Claire Cook returns with another sparkling romantic comedy that's reminiscent of Must Love Dogs in all the right ways, but very much its own animal -- about a relationship-challenged single woman, her quirky-to-put-it-mildly extended family, and the summer the shark movie came to town. Life's a bit of a beach these days for Ginger Walsh, who's single at forty-one and living back home in the family FROG (Finished Room Over Garage). She's hoping for a more fulfilling life as a sea glass artist, but instead is babysitting her sister's kids and sharing overnights with Noah, her sexy artist boyfriend with commitment issues and a dog Ginger's cat isn't too crazy about. Geri, her BlackBerry-obsessed sister, is also nearly over the deep end about her pending fiftieth birthday (and might just drag Ginger with her). Toss in a dumpster-picking father, a Kama Sutra T-shirt-wearing mother, a movie crew come to town with a very cute gaffer, an on-again-off-again glassblower boyfriend, plus a couple of Red Hat realtors, and hilarity ensues. The perfect summer read, Life's a Beach is a warm, witty, and wise look at what it takes to move forward at any stage in life.
Are the number of free Nookbooks decreasing this drastically, or is this thread kind of dying down due to lack of time/input? I check daily, but if the thread is not being updated, perhaps there is another way to keep up to date on the free offerings?
Thanks to all who have been contributing in the past - you've made many happy times!
These two are from Kensington, so they'll only be free for a day or two. Snap 'em up quickly!
Miss You Most of All by Elizabeth Bass (Kensington Publishing, May 2011)
From the Publisher:
Few things are as lasting as the bond between sisters. In her poignant debut, Elizabeth Bass explores the lengths one cobbled-together family will go to for each other. . .
Sassy Spinster Farm is a place to find solace. At least, that's what it's become since Rue and her sister, Laura, transformed their childhood Texas homestead into a successful tourist destination. It's where Rue is raising her pre-teen daughter on her own--while trying to keep her outspoken sister in check. It's not easy, but together, it seems there's nothing the two can't handle--until an unexpected, and not entirely welcome guest shows up in the middle of one warm summer night.
Moving and uplifting, here is a beautifully written novel about the bonds we are born into and those we create for ourselves--and of the strength that comes in loving without limits.
"Completely wonderful." -Beth Harbison

The story of the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well is one of hope, redemption, and a life changed in an instant through a remarkable encounter.

Now from the creative mind of Diana Wallis Taylor comes the full story of the woman at the well.
This well-researched portrayal of a woman's life in the time of Jesus opens a window into a fascinating world. Taylor's rich descriptions of the landscapes, lifestyles, and rituals mesh easily with the emotional and very personal story of one woman who desperately seeks to rise above the difficult circumstances of her life.

Where is Doug? I miss his posts. This is the only thread I follow because his posts are so good....
I miss Doug too since he's the 'Founding Father' of this thread, but Kirsty and others are doing great during his absence and I'm so happy that so many are willing to help out in this increasingly selfish world! Many thanks! :-)
