Planning a wedding is never easy-especially when the Russian Mafia wants you dead. On Best Behavior-the third and final book in The Conduct Series-finds our favorite couple moving forward, despite the odds. Following a pardon by the Governor of Illinois, ex-cons Sophie Taylor and Grant Madsen are finally free to pursue their love and the life that lies ahead for them. Grant now fights the forces that have hurt his loved ones by working undercover for the FBI, and he has infiltrated the Russian Mafia in Chicago. Sophie dives into swimming with Grant's nephew, Ben, and into her career as a psychology professor. Thankfully, now it's Ben's turn to heal through therapy sessions with Dr. Hunter Hayes. With so many things going right for Grant and Sophie, it's too bad the Russians aren't their only threat. When Grant's father, Enzo Barberi, discovers his own son thwarted his plan to break out of prison, his overdeveloped sense of vengeance flares to life. As Sophie scrambles to save her fiancé, it's impossible to say who will kill Grant first-the Russians or his Italian family. Can love triumph over evil? Are hard work and a pledge to be on best behavior ever enough? Once again, author Jennifer Lane brings a harrowing tale of romantic suspense with a psychological twist, and it's sure to leave readers breathless.
Everybody cheats. On diets, that is. Marissa Lippert, twice voted one of New York's best nutritionists, has seen her clients cheat and give up, again and again-so she created an eight-week weight loss program that starts with cheating. As her thousands of success stories show, it's a matter of accepting the cheats, building them into the week, and moving on. In eight weeks, Lippert's clients lose up to twenty pounds, and with her new book everyone else can, too. Part I of The Cheater's Diet helps readers map out their social calendar, gym time, food shopping time, and cooking time. Each week has a food plan and fun recipes, most of which take less than twenty minutes to prepare, as well as an illustrative "cheating" lesson or two. Part II is the sneaky part, in which Lippert shows when, where, and how to cheat. There are two kinds of cheating: accidental and purposeful. For the former, Lippert shows readers how to make up for too much fat, sugar, meat, or booze. And for the latter, she takes a proactive approach, with topics like "Extra Baggage: How to Compensate for Travel Food, Fast Food, and Eating Out" Throughout, readers will learn how to eat healthfully and well. The Cheater's Diet is a sassy, motivating, and effective plan for those who want to have their chocolate and drink wine, too.
