Sparta: A Captivating Guide to the Spartans, Greco-Persian Wars, Battle of Thermopylae, and Peloponnesian War by Captivating History 4.4 Stars (17 Reviews)    Price verified 52 minutes ago

If you want to discover the captivating history of Sparta, then keep reading... Free History BONUS Inside! Four captivating manuscripts in one book: • Spartans: A Captivating Guide to the Fierce Warriors of Ancient Greece, Including Spartan Military Tactics, the Battle of Thermopylae, How Sparta Was Ruled, and More • The Greco-Persian Wars: A Captivating Guide to the Conflicts Between the Achaemenid Empire and the Greek City-States, Including the Battle of Marathon, Thermopylae, Salamis, Plataea, and More • The Battle of Thermopylae: A Captivating Guide to One of the Greatest Battles in Ancient History Between the Spartans and Persians • The Peloponnesian War: A Captivating Guide to the Ancient Greek War Between the Two Leading City-States in Ancient Greece -- Athens and Sparta Sparta is one of the first names that comes to mind when we think about the ancient world. And this is for good reason. After its founding sometime in the 10th century BCE, Sparta soon rose to be one of the most powerful city-states in not only the Greek but the entire ancient world. Perhaps the most significant achievement in all of Spartan history, though, was their defeat of the Athenians in the Peloponnesian War. This conflict, which lasted roughly 30 years, put the two greatest Greek city-states of the time, Athens and Sparta, up against one another, and the result, a Spartan victory, helped to reshape the entire ancient world. It ushered in a period of Spartan hegemony which was radically different than when the Athenians sat atop the Greek world. Some of the topics covered in part 1 of this book include: • Who Were the Spartans • The Growth of Spartan Power: The Messenian Wars • A Growing Rivalry with Athens: The Greco-Persian Wars • Victory over Athens: The Birth of the Spartan Empire • Spartan Hegemony, the Corinthian War, and Sparta's Decline • Spartan Government, Military, and Society • And much, much more!

Bears by the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Chicago Bears by Uniform Number by Lew Freedman (Sports Publishing) 4.8 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 52 minutes ago

What do Al Campana, Frank Dempsey, Stan Wallace, Don Mullins, Gale Sayers, and Steve Trimble all have in common? They all wore number 40 for the Chicago Bears, even though more than four decades passed between the last time Campana last pulled on his jersey and the number was retired for Sayers in 1994 (along with 51 for Dick Butkus). Since the Chicago Bears first adopted uniform numbers in 1932, the team has handed out only 99 numbers to more than 1,000 players. That's a lot of overlap. It also makes for a lot of good stories. Bears by the Numbers tells those stories for every Bear since '32, from Red Grange to Pernell McPhee. This book lists the players alphabetically and by number; these biographies help trace the history of one of football's oldest and most beloved teams in a new way. For Bears fans, anyone who ever wore the uniform is like family. Bears by the Numbers reintroduces readers to some of their long-lost ancestors, even those they think they already know.

The Election by Darryl Greer 4.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

One body was not supposed to be uncovered -- but it was -- and the silent shadows it lets loose haunt the past, the present and, unless one man prevails, they will haunt the future too. Darryl Greer takes the reader from New Guinea's Kokoda Track where a young digger dies an agonising death to present day Australia where, in one year, the nation is threatened by virulent anarchy and by the greed and arrogance of a secret organisation. There are murders and the echoes of old wartime atrocities, a search for evidence, assassinations and dead people who torment the living as the hero, Michael Takada, is drawn even further into a world of darkness and conspiracy. The force he needs to confront is cunning and evil... and wants Michael for itself. But, if he does not act against what resides in the shadows, more innocents will be murdered. The catch -- and there's always a catch -- is that Michael's own heritage could be his downfall. Greer has his hands full as he gives us themes of disclosure and redemption, good versus evil, order versus anarchy, with a liberal dosing of most of the deadly sins and a few of the mildly toxic ones on full display. The Election is no humdrum, formulaic whodunit. It is an authentic gut-wrenching, page-turning, corpse-mouldering, firestorm-igniting, corruption-revealing, killer-rampaging masterpiece.

Ava Delaney: Lost Souls. Books 1-3. An urban fantasy adventure. ~Best read after the original Ava Delaney series~ Tainted: The backdrop may be grim, but Dublin city has become the centre of change. And as the humans and supernaturals figure out how to live in each other's worlds, the person who forced that change has quietly stepped aside for a peaceful life. Ava Delaney is still trying to adjust to her own altered existence when a tainted nephal turns up on her doorstep, apparently on the run from the monster who changed Ava's life before she was even born. But she's not supposed to interfere, even for the lost souls she's vowed to help. But as the first vampire leaves death in his wake, and Ava becomes an easy target to blame, she realises she has to take care of business once again. There are more secrets hidden in the shadows, more voices just waiting to be heard, and obedience has never been Ava's thing. Only one thing is for certain: for people like Ava Delaney, there's no such thing as a peaceful life. Tethers: Ava's been protecting her shifter friend from the alpha for months, but now he's managed to come up with a brand new excuse to take Esther, and the Senate have turned their backs on her completely.

Hell's Highway by G. Daniel Cole (Createspace) 4.0 Stars (24 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Having been blessed with a rich, full life, I must with all due humility confess that very little moves me anymore. I've seen and experienced the self-sacrifice and beauty that only the deepest of loves can bestow. I have been poisoned and hardened by man's inhumanity to man. Having said that, imagine my soul-stirring surprise when my friend Danny Cole sent me, almost apologetically, the first chapter of what became this book, seeking my opinion. The thing was, you see, Danny Cole had never before written anything in the way of books, short stories, poetry, etc. But he had something he needed to express and about halfway through his twenty-second year of sobriety he felt the time had come to express it. Not that he isn't a creative artist. Anyone who has ever seen the photographs of his loving tribute to his daughter Gloria, named Gloria Gardens, that he designed and constructed stone by stone in his back yard couldn't help but realize that. Anyone who has ever seen his photography would also realize his artistic talent. What follows here is true artistry as well... it is a story of depravity, deprivation and cruelty... a story of angels with razor wire halos. It is a story of guts, determination, learning the hard way, the law of the jungle and human kindness even in the vilest of circumstances. It is the story of a life that never stood a chance... except for the guy that lived it: G. Daniel Cole and the merciful God that was watching over him. Whether you are a troubled soul struggling with tragedies that appear insurmountable, or one privileged to say "there but for the grace of God go I"... from start to finish this story will move you to the very depths of your Being. That every minute of it was lived by the man who put these words to paper only adds to its deep and eternal message. With an abiding sense of privilege to have witnessed its birth, I now invite you to read Hell's Highway... a story that will stay with you for the rest of your life. John W. ...

The Skipton Haunting: Curse of the Red Ribbon Witch by Andrew John Bell (Independant Publisher) 5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 5 hours ago

Once connected, never can a bond be broken... Relocating from the quiet suburbs of London to the industrial northern town of Newton Escomb, to a small cul-de-sac there named Skipton Road, was already a challenge in itself for Christopher Joyce and his family -- yet, they had no idea of what malevolent horrors awaited them there. Unbeknown to them, the Joyce's new home bore a terrible and bloody past. It was plagued by wicked entities, twisted deeds, death, and witchcraft. Although, not all was as it seemed. Christopher was a firm sceptic of anything supernatural, as was his wife, Amy, but that would soon change after two demonic beings made their presences and sordid intentions known through many terrifying apparitions and vivid nightmares. Already held in a vulnerable state of mind, Amy gradually succumbed to the powerful influence of these dark spirits, namely a fallen witch who possessed a desperate thirst for vengeance against men -- Sabina. As their connection grew, the bond between Amy and Sabina, Christopher was left with little choice but to act. After all, he had his and Amy's young children to protect as well. Through the help of strangers and past acquaintances of Skipton Road, Christopher steadily became obsessed with discovering the truth behind what now haunted his family. However, there lurked an even greater darkness within the shadows -- Baal, an ancient demon -- Sabina's master. The Joyce family had unwittingly found themselves embroiled in a battle between the warring spirits, and it would change their lives forever. Sequel to 'The Skipton Haunting: Tale of the Red Ribbon Witch', but can also be read as a stand-alone novel. The demonic entities entailed are based on an actual haunting the author and his family experienced in 2016. Names of characters and certain places have been changed to help protect identities of those involved.

Slavery in Florida: Territorial Days to Emancipation by Larry Eugene Rivers (University Press of Florida) 5.0 Stars (8 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

This important illustrated social history of slavery tells what life was like for bond servants in Florida from 1821 to 1865, offering new insights from the perspective of both slave and master. Starting with an overview of the institution as it evolved during the Spanish and English periods, Larry E. Rivers looks in detail and in depth at the slave experience, noting the characteristics of slavery in the Middle Florida plantation belt (the more traditional slave-based, cotton-growing economy and society) as distinct from East and West Florida (which maintained some attitudes and traditions of Spain). He examines the slave family, religion, resistance activity, slaves' participation in the Civil War, and their social interactions with whites, Indians, other slaves, and masters. Rivers also provides a dramatic account of the hundreds of armed free blacks and runaways among the Seminole, Creek, and Mikasuki Indians on the peninsula, whose presence created tensions leading to the great slave rebellion, the Second Seminole War (1835-42). Slavery in Florida is built upon painstaking research into virtually every source available on the subject--a wealth of historic documents, personal papers, slave testimonies, and census and newspaper reports. This serious critical work strikes a balance between the factual and the interpretive. It will be significant to all readers interested in slavery, the Civil War, the African American experience, and Florida and southern U.S. history, and it could serve as a comprehensive resource for secondary school teachers and students.

Black Miami in the Twentieth Century (Florida History and Culture) by Marvin Dunn (University Press of Florida) 5.0 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

The first book devoted to the history of African Americans in south Florida and their pivotal role in the growth and development of Miami, Black Miami in the Twentieth Century traces their triumphs, drudgery, horrors, and courage during the first 100 years of the city's history. Firsthand accounts and over 130 photographs, many of them never published before, bring to life the proud heritage of Miami's black community. Beginning with the legendary presence of black pirates on Biscayne Bay, Marvin Dunn sketches the streams of migration by which blacks came to account for nearly half the city's voters at the turn of the century. From the birth of a new neighborhood known as "Colored Town," Dunn traces the blossoming of black businesses, churches, civic groups, and fraternal societies that made up the black community. He recounts the heyday of "Little Broadway" along Second Avenue, with photos and individual recollections that capture the richness and vitality of black Miami's golden age between the wars. A substantial portion of the book is devoted to the Miami civil rights movement, and Dunn traces the evolution of Colored Town to Overtown and the subsequent growth of Liberty City. He profiles voting rights, housing and school desegregation, and civil disturbances like the McDuffie and Lozano incidents, and analyzes the issues and leadership that molded an increasingly diverse community through decades of strife and violence. In concluding chapters, he assesses the current position of the community--its socioeconomic status, education issues, residential patterns, and business development--and considers the effect of recent waves of immigration from Latin America and the Caribbean. Dunn combines exhaustive research in regional media and archives with personal interviews of pioneer citizens and longtime residents in a work that documents as never before the life of one of the most important black communities in the United States.

Wounded Minds: Understanding and Solving the Growing Menace of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder by John Liebert (Skyhorse) 4.5 Stars (8 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

A compelling look at one of the most pressing public health issues of our time. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. John Liebert, a psychiatrist who has treated hundreds of veterans, and Dr. William Birnes, a New York Times bestselling author, uncover the disturbing truths about post-traumatic stress disorder among veterans. Using scientific, historical, and anecdotal evidence, these two experts reveal why PTSD is on the rise, the threats it poses to society, and how the military is dramatically failing to give their men and women the help they desperately need. In addition, Liebert and Birnes detail the cutting-edge methods that have been developed to help soldiers heal the emotional wounds of combat. Wounded Minds also provides readers with fascinating analyses of several high-profile suicide and massacre cases, including Staff Sergeant Robert Bales's murder of sixteen Afghan citizens and Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who opened fire on a room full of defenseless American troops. Through these stories, the authors further illustrate the very real threat posed by post-traumatic stress disorder. They also explain how to diagnose and understand the brain abnormalities associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, the diagnostic problems confronting military medicine today, and what we can do now and in the future to curb this devastating epidemic.

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy (Open Road Media) 4.3 Stars (1,050 Review)    Price verified one hour ago

The grand epic set during Napoleon's invasion of Russia: a vividly detailed view of nineteenth-century Russian life by the author of Anna Karenina. Widely regarded as one of the greatest novels ever written, War and Peace is Leo Tolstoy's magnum opus, a groundbreaking work of literary realism, and a psychologically acute examination of Tsarist society in the Napoleonic Era.

The Ansgar Treasury: A Windflower Saga Collection by Aleksandra Layland 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

Reviewed by BlueInk in BookList Magazine Sep 2017 as a self-published book recommended for librarians to add to their collections, with equal praise for the sequels: The Wisdom and Valor Treasury and The Far Haven Treasury. The Ansgar Treasury is the first part of an epic fantasy trilogy called the Windflower Saga, set in a medieval-like world. A hundred years after the end of the colonial wars, Kimbria is finally a unified kingdom. A young man named Ansgar, dressed only in the robe of a monk, wanders alone in the southern Wastelands, searching for the remnants of an indigenous people, called the Kimbrii, who are on the brink of extinction following years of living under harsh post-colonial laws intended to prevent their prosperity as a people. He's come to help them, but instead finds himself near death, until he opens his eyes and sees her... a woman named Keholani, unlike any he's ever seen before... a clan chief and the future leader of her people. She'll save him from death and quietly captivate his heart. In a tender romance story, he'll defy the conventions of the time and marry her, revealing his true identity, and founding a family that will change the future of Kimbria forever. This omnibus edition includes the epic fantasy novel "Ansgar: The Struggle of a People. The Triumph of the Heart." (Part I of The Windflower Saga trilogy) and three related novellas: "The Feathered Crown," "Far Endeavor," and "Three Brothers of Ansgar." "The Feathered Crown" tells the story of the man who raised Keholani from the time she was eight years old: her uncle, the High Chief Kahutane. How did he become the wise and insightful leader who befriends Ansgar and helps to guide his people to prosperity? And how did he, who never expected to do so, come to wear the feathered crown? "Far Endeavor" primarily tells the story of Ansgar's and Keholani's eldest son, Lord Branimir Rongo, who would later be known simply as Brother Branimir. Born to wealth and nobility, he seeks only ...

Cold Tears A woman as deep in despair as a person can be. Is it unbearable grief or unbearable guilt? A child is missing, a baby taken away in the middle of the night. It's a life-shattering tragedy, but no one seems to care. Is it because the grieving mother is a "lowlife druggie," as the chief investigator maintains? Or is there another reason the case is given short shrift by the "good people" of James Mill? Richard Carter, an ex-Marine suffering PTSD who has been spared prosecution for felony homicide only by a governor's pardon, consents to help the grieving mother, Molly. In doing so, he ignores the pleading of his wife, Jill, who begs him to disengage from the situation which she sees as a threat to his wounded psyche. Will the truth, if and when he finds it, save or destroy the woman who sees Richard as her "godsend?" What he is doing may be futile as well as unwise. It may, in fact, plunge him into clinical depression and wreck his marriage. He has given his word to Molly, but Jill is his life. What will the truth do to them all? And what are "cold tears"?

A Buddhist Love Story by Bobby Hudson 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified one hour ago

A few years ago I wrote a novel entitled "A Buddhist Love Story," which is the fictional account of Ron Johnson's adventure into Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhist practice. As Ron becomes a practitioner of Nichiren Buddhism, he revolutionizes his life. Moreover, Ron falls madly in love with Denise Sanford, the woman who introduces him to Nichiren Buddhism. A problem arises when Denise finds out something dark and disturbing about Ron's life that he has managed to keep secret from her. The question is whether or not Denise's revelation about Ron will doom any potential romance between Ron and Denise or will Ron be able to use Nichiren Buddhism to change his fundamental darkness and use it to benefit his relationship with Denise. This Buddhist philosophy was developed in Japan by a13th century monk named Nichiren Daishonin. Nichiren discovered by the very act of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo a person could reach a state of enlightenment or absolute happiness. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo translates to "devotion of the Mystic Law of cause and effect through the Buddhist teachings." Although "A Buddhist Love Story" is a fictional story, the novel's true intent is to give the reader an accurate and very real account of what it means to practice Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism. Since many Americans know little about Nichiren Daishonin Buddhist practice, I chose to provide readers with relative information about this Buddhism in an entertaining way. While being invested in Ron's story, the reader is able to learn how to practice Nichiren Buddhism and learn about the tremendous positive impact Nichiren Buddhism can have on a person's life. Therefore, "A Buddhist Love Story" can actually be used as a reference guide to practicing Nichiren Buddhism. Nichiren Buddhism is not a cult. In fact, Nichiren Buddhism advocates diversity and free thinking. No one in the Soka Gakkai International, which is the lay organization for Nichiren Daishonin Buddhist practice, ever tells anyone how they ...

SOUL AND CELL AND THE DEVOLUTIONAL MODEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS: THE RECONCILIATION OF PRENATAL-PERINATAL AND TRANSPERSONAL PSYCHOLOGY Prenatal spirituality and the devolutional model of consciousness compelled by it envision a revolution in child development, parenting, mental health, and spirituality. Falls from Grace presents such a radical theory of consciousness, evolution, stages of life, purpose of life, human nature, and the human species. Reporting on the latest understandings from consciousness research and experiential explorations into the human mind, it discloses awareness extending into womb and cellular states -- sperm, egg, zygote, and blastocyst, for example -- and even before conception. It is a comprehensive understanding, which basically turns everything we think is true on its head. Still, in doing so, it reveals previously unacknowledged positive and joyful possibilities of our human potential and indicates exactly where we need to apply our efforts to realize them... to transform ourselves and the societies and world we live in. While Falls from Grace is a radical view, it is in line with mystical beliefs, Platonic thought, and even much of primitive or primal-like views of the world and Nature. In the end, Falls from Grace suggests a new renaissance on the horizon - a primal renaissance - as formerly discarded views are re-understood and integrated in light of new paradigm discoveries.

THE IMPRESSIONIST OF PROVENCE by Ray Drayton 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified one hour ago

1939-1945: The world was plunged into global conflict for the second time in recent history. The giant juggernaut of the Swastika swept across Europe with a vengeance to divide and conquer. Provence, like the rest of France was put to the sword of Nazi Ideology. French civilians stoically continued living their lives as they had for centuries, albeit on a day to day basis. The same question remained on every Frenchman's lips - surely this cannot be happening?? But it is. That is the shocking reality... Professor Baptiste Dubois was one such man. He relinquished his post as a lecturer at The Sorbonne in Paris. Like the great masters of French Impressionist Art, he heeded the inner call to imbibe in the vibrant light and colour harmonies which represent Provence. This unique region in the south of France possessed a magic which had mysteriously attracted artists since the post Renaissance Period. Provence lured people of similar ilk to partake in creating the magic their inner eye perceived directly onto canvas. The heart saw what the physical eye could not see. The 'New Age' technique of Impressionist art form was born. Baptiste's intended sojourn to join his family living in Provence and practice his art skills in particular, was thrust to one side when the totally unexpected happened. The outbreak of war for the second time that century... The French government departed Paris 10th June 1940. German forces occupied Paris four days later. The French Capital had fallen. The Dubois family in idyllic Provence went about their daily lives seemingly oblivious to what had happened in the north of France. The brutal truth became apparent one night in 1944 when a RAF heavy bomber ditched in the Rhone River adjacent to the ancient Roman city of Arles, close by where they lived. Under threat of death by their German occupiers if they were caught, the two surviving members of the Dubois family hid the injured pilot from the dreaded Gestapo.

Dancing in Blackness: A Memoir by Halifu Osumare (University Press of Florida) 5.0 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

American Society for Aesthetics Selma Jeanne Cohen Prize in Dance Aesthetics Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award Dancing in Blackness is a professional dancer's personal journey over four decades, across three continents and 23 countries, and through defining moments in the story of black dance in America. In this memoir, Halifu Osumare reflects on what blackness and dance have meant to her life and international career. Osumare's story begins in 1960s San Francisco amid the Black Arts Movement, black militancy, and hippie counterculture. It was there, she says, that she chose dance as her own revolutionary statement. Osumare describes her experiences as a young black dancer in Europe teaching "jazz ballet" and establishing her own dance company in Copenhagen. Moving to New York City, she danced with the Rod Rodgers Dance Company and took part in integrating the programs at the Lincoln Center. After doing dance fieldwork in Ghana, Osumare returned to California and helped develop Oakland's black dance scene. Osumare introduces readers to some of the major artistic movers and shakers she collaborated with throughout her career, including Katherine Dunham, Pearl Primus, Jean-Leon Destine, Alvin Ailey, and Donald McKayle. Now a black studies scholar, Osumare uses her extraordinary experiences to reveal the overlooked ways that dance has been a vital tool in the black struggle for recognition, justice, and self-empowerment. Her memoir is the inspiring story of an accomplished dance artist who has boldly developed and proclaimed her identity as a black woman.

Skytrain: A Transport Revolution by Philip Kaplan (Skyhorse) Price verified 8 hours ago

The legendary Douglas DC-3 airliner was a technological breakthrough that changed the course of both civilian and military aviation. In the 1930s, passenger air travel was expensive, uncomfortable, and frequently unreliable. That began to change with the appearance of the handsome, thoroughly modern DC-3, the twenty-one-passenger twin-engine propeller-driven creation of Donald Douglas and his young California company. The first production models were sold to airlines for $90,000. The price climbed to $115,000 just before the United States entered the Second World War in December 1941. The new plane quickly became a favorite of passengers the world over, and it became the first truly profitable plane for the industry. The threat posed by the coming war made the US Army realize that a military version could handle the vital troop and cargo transport capability soon to be needed. The C-47 Skytrain was born and evolved into specialized versions with many nicknames: Gooney Bird, Dakota, and Puff the Magic Dragon. In WWII, General Dwight Eisenhower was so impressed he referenced it in his famous comment: ?The four pieces of equipment the most vital to Allied success in Africa and Europe were the bulldozer, the jeep, the two-and-a-half-ton truck, and the Douglas C-47.? Skytrain celebrates the long and distinguished career of this great plane.

In Search of Lost Time [volumes 1 to 7] by Marcel Proust (Pandora's Box Classics) 4.3 Stars (192 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

On the surface a traditional Bildungsroman describing the narrator's journey of self-discovery, this huge and complex book is also a panoramic and richly comic portrait of France in the author's lifetime, and a profound meditation on the nature of art, love, time, memory and death. But for most readers it is the characters of the novel who loom the largest: Swann and Odette, Monsieur de Charlus, Morel, the Duchesse de Guermantes, Françoise, Saint-Loup and so many others -- Giants, as the author calls them, immersed in Time. In Search of Lost Time is a novel in seven volumes. The novel began to take shape in 1909. Proust continued to work on it until his final illness in the autumn of 1922 forced him to break off. Proust established the structure early on, but even after volumes were initially finished he kept adding new material, and edited one volume after another for publication. The last three of the seven volumes contain oversights and fragmentary or unpolished passages as they existed in draft form at the death of the author; the publication of these parts was overseen by his brother Robert. "In Search of Lost Time" is widely recognized as the major novel of the twentieth century. -- Harold Bloom At once the last great classic of French epic prose tradition and the towering precursor of the "nouveau roman". -- Bengt Holmqvist I am in a state of amazement; as if a miracle were being done before my eyes... Proust so titillates my own desire for expression that I can hardly set out the sentence. Oh if I could write like that! -- Virginia Woolf The greatest fiction to date. -- W. Somerset Maugham Proust is the greatest novelist of the 20th century. -- Graham Greene Our second greatest novel after "War and Peace". -- E. M. Forster

Can Sam Reilly weave his way through the web of industrial and political espionage before the human race loses its greatest fight for survival? The Cassidy Project In the middle of the Pacific Ocean in 1962, at the height of the cold war, the U.S. military experimented with electromagnetic pulses created by detonating high atmosphere nuclear bombs.

Pineapple Lies: A Pineapple Port Mystery: Book One (Pineapple Port Mysteries 1) by Amy Vansant 4.4 Stars (1,008 Review)    Price verified one hour ago

Pineapple Port Mysteries by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Amy Vansant, is a funny, clean and gore-free small-town, female amateur sleuth series, but with all the pulse-pounding excitement of a detective thriller. Book #1 of the binge-worthy series, Pineapple Lies, is a twisty puzzler... Solve the mystery before you die laughing! It's bad enough Charlotte Morgan found a body buried in her back yard -- when she discovers the bones belong to the long-missing mom of the hottest guy in town, she knows she's just made the world's worst first impression. Determined to solve the crime, the 26-year-old becomes an amateur sleuth... even though, after being raised in a 55-plus Florida retirement community, golf-cart racing's usually about as exciting as life gets. Quips get flung and puns get slung, making for a hilarious read, but even better, Pineapple Port's just a place you want to hang out. The dialog crackles---you'll hear the voices of your own nutty friends and relatives in every conversation. Charlotte's a unique female protagonist, being the only chick, as a friend observes, in a roomful of hens, but Pineapple Port is a wonderful character in itself, possessing its own exotic customs and quirks. People have nicknames like Jenny Teacup (because she collects tea sets), exercise comes in the form of water aerobics, and Poolside Breakfast is a big social event. But beneath this typical Florida retirement community, trouble brews... Throughout the series, you find serial killers, crazy ex-girlfriends, loving dogs, romance, government operatives, FBI agents, danger... and a cast of characters almost as funny as they are loving, supportive and brave. The series appeals to men and women. If Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and the Golden Girls had a baby, it would be the Pineapple Port series! If you like Jana Deleon, Angie Fox, Leslie Langtry, Susan M. Boyer, Gina-LaManna, Julie Smith or any funny, action-packed mystery, you're about to ...
