Coupon-clipping Mrs. Frugalicious gets more than she bargained for. After Mr. Frank ´´Finance´´ Michaels loses the family’s financial nest egg in a Ponzi scheme, his wife Maddie does whatever she can to help keep up the appearance that everything is financially fine. When she starts a bargain hunter’s blog under the alias Mrs. Frugalicious, her website becomes a viral hit with a growing ´´frugarmy´´ of budget advice seekers. While Maddie is researching ´´frugasm´´-worthy deals on holiday shopping for teens, Eternally 21 store manager Laila DeSimone mistakenly accuses her of shoplifting. Then her day goes from bad to worse when Laila expires on the floor. Since Laila was a universally disliked manager, the murder suspect list is longer than Maddie’s bargain spreadsheet. But when evidence points to Maddie as the prime suspect, she must track down the real culprit. Can she uncover the truth before police throw away her get-out-of-jail-free coupon for good? Includes bargain shopping tips & techniques. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tavia Gilbert. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/011868/bk_adbl_011868_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement. Wait. What? My fiancé´s father won´t stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family´s Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she´s done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice. They´ve all gone certifiably mad. Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew´s grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky. So what do you do when you´re a fixer and you can´t fix something? You give up on it. Not on Andrew, silly. The wedding. Shopping for a CEO´s Wife is the 12th book in Julia Kent´s New York Times best-selling Shopping series. As Shannon and Declan enjoy their newlywed bliss, Andrew´s father wants to exploit Amanda and Andrew´s nuptials, much to Amanda´s chagrin. Can she learn to stand up to her future father-in-law and fight for what´s right? But the real question is: will Spritzy the teacup Chihuahua end up being a flower girl? 1. Language: English.

Have you ever had a skinny friend who can eat everything he/she wants and still not gain weight? Does it make you feel very frustrated that you, on the other hand, no matter how little you eat, can´t seem to lose any of the extra pounds? Sounds unfair, doesn´t it? But yes, there are lucky ones who are blessed with the fast metabolism gene. On the other hand, there are the unlucky ones, like you and me, who may have inherited a sluggish metabolic rate. Most people think that when you have a slow metabolic rate, you must eat only as much calories as your body can use. But a slow metabolism is only half the picture. The amount and the quality of the food you eat also affect your body´s fat-burning abilities. If you eat more calories than what your body can burn and are living a sedentary lifestyle, then the result is the unused energy gets stored in your body as fat. Additionally, if you eat too much unhealthy food or eat inadequately by skipping meals, your body does not get the right amount of vitamins and minerals that it needs to burn the fats, such as magnesium and iron, which not only support but also boost metabolic rate. No wonder why diets that emphasize only exercise or focus only on calorie intake seldom work. Some diets even stress almost starving yourself just to lose the extra pounds. You are not doing yourself any favors at all. You are only stripping away the nutrients and disrupting the hormones that your body needs to effectively metabolize the food you eat. Aside from the reasons mentioned above, your sex, age, and body size and composition are also factors that affect the rate at which your metabolism works. 1. Language: English.
