When Noah and Josephine discover their divorce was never actually finalized, their lives are turned upside down. Following his divorce, Noah gave up his dream job and settled at a remote horse ranch in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Georgia, putting much-needed distance between himself and the former love of his life. But then Noah gets a letter from the IRS claiming he and Josephine are still married. When he confronts Josephine, they discover that she missed the final step in filing the paperwork and they are, in fact, still married. Josephine is no happier about the news than Noah. Maybe the failed marriage - and botched divorce - was her fault, but her heart was shattered right alongside his, more than he would ever believe. The sooner they put this marriage behind them, the better for both of their sakes. But when Josephine delivers the final paperwork to his ranch, the two become stranded in his cottage during the worst spring snowstorm in a decade. Being trapped with Josephine is a test of Noah´s endurance. He wrestles with resentment and an unmistakable pull to his wife - still beautiful, still brave, and still more intriguing than any woman he´s ever known. As they find themselves confronted with each other and their shared past, old wounds surface, and tempers flare. But when they are forced out into the storm, they must rely on each other in a way they never have before. Josephine finally opens up about her tragic past, and Noah realizes she´s never been loved unconditionally by anyone - including him. Will Noah accept the challenge to pursue Josephine´s heart? And can she finally find the courage to trust Noah? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Julie Carr. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tnwd/000726/bk_tnwd_000726_sample.mp3.

From the New York Times best-selling author of Beach Blues comes a novel of summers you never forget and friendships that never fade. After a heartbreaking summer on the Connecticut shore, a group of beach friends is as adrift as an unmoored rowboat. When a dismayed Jason Barlow drives as far away from the sea as he can, leaving behind his wife, Maris, as well as their stately cottage on the bluff, that news hits like a sudden wave. Gathering over an intimate meal in a coastal diner, the friends make a solemn pact to lean on each other and not make any more rash decisions. Which is all well and good, until each friend wavers--testing relationships, commitments, and especially love in the little beach community of Stony Point. But can the magic of the weathered boardwalk, whispering lagoon grasses, and sweet salt air cure what ails them? Like a swaying seashell wind chime, Beach Breeze is a book that leaves echoes of summer´s sweetness and sadness, long after the last page is turned. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Cracknell.

Do your insides jump for joy when you see a perfectly frosted cupcake or cookie? Or do you love the look of violet lavender syrup or a mouthwatering strawberry and lime jam? Or are you more of a savory person and melt when you see a jar of homemade salsa or seasoned nuts with just the right amount of spices? If food excites you as much as it does me, you just might be a foodie. And in today´s food-centered world, there is serious money to be made with your passion. Food consumption has really changed in the past decade, and now more than ever, people want to know what´s in their food, where it came from and who made it. That´s bad news for businesses that mass produce food, but great news for those in the cottage food industry. You see, in the past individuals who wanted to sell food were required to involve the state health inspectors and lease commercial kitchens in order to sell to the public. Obviously, that prevented a lot of people from pursuing their food dreams. But now many states have passed cottage food laws that are designed to give home chefs and bakers the right to produce products from their homes and sell them to the public. I´ve opened and closed many businesses in my lifetime, and there´s nothing I love more than taking an idea and turning it into a smoothly run, profitable business. And this book was born of that desire. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anna Crowe. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/072885/bk_acx0_072885_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
