Toni has more worries on her plate than she cares to count. Their battered old carwash is in even worse shape than they thought. Phoebe has been alarmingly moody and withdrawn ever since she met their new landlord, Riley Thompson, to haggle out their lease agreement.And the county’s new building inspector has showed up unexpectedly, and brought trouble with him. Now they might not be able to open their new business for several months!Why does he keep coming back to pester her? If only he wasn’t so incredibly sexy, with a taste for homemade Italian cooking…and gorgeous Italian sorority girls!~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~“Toni!” Muriel rounded the corner at top speed…then rocked back on her heels and stared up at Jason in surprise. “Well, hello there, dark and handsome!”“Hello, yourself!” Thompson had warned him that the BetaZeds were all lookers, but even so, Muriel’s exotic beauty was stunning. Those long slender legs, lush breasts, coppery skin that gleamed with healthy sweat, and enchanting elfin features packed an unexpected punch that he felt all the way into his gut.“Muriel.” Toni’s crisp reply held a low note of warning that surprised even herself. “What’s wrong?”“Not wrong…right! I think.” The Jamaican girl’s rich contralto voice suddenly faltered with doubt. “We found a plastic bag buried under the rubble, and there’s a whole bunch of money inside!”“Don’t touch anything!” Jason yelled as she vanished around the far corner. “The police will want to dust everything for prints!”“We know!” Another woman’s voice answered him. “Who the hell are you?”He skidded to a stop, and found himself facing Muriel and five other women in a tight cluster. The tallest one’s raking glance was distinctly chilly.“Jason Prescott,” he said, thrusting a hand in her direction. “County building inspector.”She shook his hand reluctantly. “Nina Marshall,” she replied. “And these are my sorority sisters.”H 1.

Prep meets Girls in White Dresses in Genevieve Sly Crane's deliciously addictive, compulsively listenable exploration of female friendship and coming of age that will appeal to anyone who has ever been curious about what goes on in a sorority house....  Margot is dead.  There's a rumor she died because she couldn't take the pressure of being a pledge. You may not ask what happened to her. It's not your business. But it wasn't a suicide, if you're wondering.  Spring Fling will not be cancelled. The deposit is nonrefundable. And Margot would have wanted the sisterhood to continue in her absence, if only to protect her sisters' secrets: Shannon is the thinnest girl in the house (the other sisters hate her for it, but they know her sacrifice: She only uses the bathroom by the laundry room); Kyra has slept with 29 boys since she started college (they are all different and all the same); Amanda is a virgin (her mincing gait and sloping posture give it away); and while half the sisters are too new to have known Margot, Deirdre remembers her - she always remembers.  With a keen sense of character and unflinching, observant prose, Crane exposes the undercurrents of tension in a world where perfection comes at a cost and the best things in life are painful - if not impossible - to acquire: Beauty. A mother's love. And friendship...or at least the appearance of it.  1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Davies. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/008264/bk_sans_008264_sample.mp3.

Lucky Boy , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1000min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

A gripping tale of adventure and searing reality, Lucky Boy gives voice to two mothers bound together by their love for one lucky boy. Solimar Castro Valdez is 18 and drunk on optimism when she embarks on a perilous journey across the US-Mexican border. Weeks later she arrives on her cousin's doorstep in Berkeley, California, dazed by first love found then lost - and pregnant. This was not the plan. But amid the uncertainty of new motherhood and her American identity, Soli learns that when you have just one precious possession, you guard it with your life. For Soli, motherhood becomes her dwelling and the boy at her breast her hearth. Kavya Reddy has always followed her heart, much to her parents' chagrin. A mostly contented chef at a UC Berkeley sorority house, the unexpected desire to have a child descends like a cyclone in Kavya's mid-30s. When she can't get pregnant, this desire will test her marriage, it will test her sanity, and it will set Kavya and her husband, Rishi, on a collision course with Soli when she is detained and her infant son comes under Kavya's care. As Kavya learns to be a mother - the singing, storytelling, inventor-of-the-universe kind of mother she fantasized about being - she builds her love on a fault line, her heart wrapped around someone else's child. Lucky Boy is an emotional journey that will leave you certain of the redemptive beauty of this world. There are no bad guys in this story, no obvious hero. From rural Oaxaca to Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto to the dreamscapes of Silicon Valley, author Shanthi Sekaran has taken real life and applied it to fiction; the results are moving and revelatory. 1.

ABOUT IN THIS HOUSE BY LORETTA DIANE WALKER: Loretta Diane Walker's house of poems is majestic and delicate at once - immense in depth of vision and perception and tenderly sensitive in all the ways human beings need a house to be - with places to sit and remember, to treasure, and to tend. Her vibrantly descriptive poems honor the hardest days and rooms of being and believe in the beams of light coming back to us, once again, through the windows. They are poems as rich and wise as a profoundly conscious life. -Naomi Shihab Nye The deftly-written poems of In This House sing of life and loss, of illness and the courage to survive. Loretta Diane Walker's poems inhabit the world of the body in struggle with diabetes and cancer with both honesty and tenderness, just as they do the world of the heart. To borrow a line from the poem, 'Barbara,' these poems 'blast beauty into the long chorus of night.' -Cindy Huyser, poet and editor, author of Burning Number Five: Power Plant Poems In these remarkable poems, Walker writes not only of courage in the face of adversity but also of motherhood, family, gender, race, the bounty of the natural world, and the nourishment art provides to the hunger of the human soul. Her talent as a musician infuses her lines with a haunting musicality which complements her mastery of image and diction. Walker's poems glow on the page like candles in the darkness. -Larry D. Thomas, Member, Texas Institute of Letters, 2008 Texas Poet Laureate Loretta Walker shuttles through the curls of emotions in her powerful book of poetry, In This House. Describing her mother's decline through diabetes, the delicate state of siblings comes through poems such as 'In the Waiting Room'. Mama was rolled in with two legs;/ she will be rolled out with one./ We are waiting/ to see who can hold back tears the longest. There is story here. Story of strength and stamina. I will give you an orange dress, Mama./ It is the only color brave enough to carry your darkness/ in its pocket. We are touched by her portrayal of her nephew's broken heart in 'Shrine of Hormones' Because I love you more than the day you were born,/ I will not tell you she is just the beginning. Her lines are clever, moving; words that linger long after the poem, such as in 'Jack' Jack Daniel's been feasting on liver,/ without onions, since before the depression. Walker is a poet on the rise, her words like a mantra to all who read, such as in 'How to Fight Like a Girl' You must learn to walk/ through the day with a fish of fear/ floating through/ the coral of your belly. Read this book. Keep it in your nightstand. You will reach for it again and again. -Karla K. Morton, 2010 Texas Poet Laureate

ABOUT THE BOOK From Oklahoma small town girl to platinum recording artist, Carrie Underwood has transformed before America's eyes like a character in a modern fairy tale. Though Carrie began singing at the precocious age of three in her church choir, by the time she was twenty-one, a career in singing was far from her mind. Instead, the college senior was looking forward to graduation and pursuing a career in broadcast journalism. One fateful day in 2004, though, Carrie looked up the audition locations for the fourth season of American idol. With no professional singing experience, Carrie was certain she would not be chosen to go to Hollywood. Much to her surprise, however, judges Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, and Randy Jackson loved the country sound of the small town girl. In 2005, Carrie breezed through the competition to become the fourth American Idol. The fairytale wasn't quite over yet. Since her American Idol victory, Underwood has become one of the biggest names in country music, making three platinum albums. Underwood has won multiple Billboard Awards, Country Music Awards, American Music Awards, and five Grammy Awards. She has crisscrossed North America several times, performing in front of sold-out crowds to millions of fans. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK By the time Carrie was in college, she had made the decision to choose a practical career path. Singing was a dream that Carrie relegated to childhood. At Northeastern State University, Carrie concentrated on a degree in journalism. Underwood worked part-time at a pizzeria and interned with Oklahoma State Representative Bobby Frame. Underwood wasn't all work and no play. In fact, Carrie joined the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority, also known as TriSigma, at Northeastern State. TriSigma offered Carrie an avenue to meet friends and engage in philanthropic works nearby her school. Carrie also competed in a few local beauty pageants, and was named Miss NSU runner-up in 2004. During her last year at Northeastern State University, Carrie auditioned for the fourth season of American Idol. Underwood says that though she has not taken the professional route she originally envisioned for herself, her degree still comes in handy. She says, 'It helps me when answering questions, especially on camera, because that's what I'm used to. I know what the reporters are looking for and I also know when they're trying to make me say something bad. They'll ask me some hot button question, something to get myself in trouble!'...
