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.

Picture a familiar scene: long lines of shoppers waiting to check out at the grocery store, carts filled to the brim with the week?s food. While many might wonder what is in each cart, Andrew Warnes implores us to consider the symbolism of the cart itself. In his inventive new book, Warnes examines how the everyday shopping cart is connected to a complex web of food production and consumption that has spread from the United States throughout the world. Today, shopping carts represent choice and autonomy for consumers, a recognizable American way of life that has become a global phenomenon. This succinct and and accessible book provides an excellent overview of consumerism and the globalization of American culture.
