              Rosie Maldonne thought she hit it big when she stumbled upon an envelope of cash. But with a nasty flu keeping her laid out, school fees due and Christmas on the way, she finds herself back in the red. Time to find a real job. After weeks of searching, Rosie is losing hope when t...he man of her dreams happens to post a new position: cleaning for an elderly person. Perfect! She lands the job, but the new role brings more than the promise of romance. When orphaned twins appear on her doorstep - desperate and on the run - Rosie agrees to hide them. Harboring illegal immigrants and a diamond necklace stolen from the Mafia a year ago is stressful work. Paranoid and seeing suspicious people everywhere, Rosie contemplates fleeing to Amsterdam or seeking help from her new prince charming. In this hilarious and suspenseful second investigation, Rosie has no choice but to roll up her sleeves and keep her ever-expanding family from harm.

              Rosie Maldonne is outspoken and sexy. She's also unemployed, and, with three children and a cat, life is a little tough. The four of them - well, five, if you count the cat - live in the South of France, in a run-down trailer near a vacant lot. They make do, living off her part-t...ime waitressing job and a little help from the state. Rosie thinks things are finally turning around when she meets handsome police officer Jerome - until she realises that his appearance coincides with her friend Vero's disappearance. Then, something even stranger happens: Rosie finds a package with a crazy amount of money in the trash can of a fast-food joint. With so much going on, Rosie has some big questions: Where is Vero? Is Jerome too good to be true? Who put all that cash in the trash? And what happens when they want it back?

              On the French Riviera during the Belle Epoque, a murder draws two women into the dangerous shadows of Europe's privileged elite... One spring evening in 1884, beautiful young courtesan Lola Deslys discovers the lifeless body of a chambermaid hidden in the gardens of the H tel Bea...u Rivage in Cannes. Even more distressing is that Lola knows the girl well. When the inquiry into her murder fails to reveal a single substantial clue, Lola is persuaded by novelist Guy de Maupassant to delve into the case on her own. Eager to exert her independence and defy conventions, Lola agrees. But she needs help in her investigation, and there's no better partner in her pursuit--however unlikely--than Miss Gabriella Fletcher, a highborn, well-educated, and currently disgraced English governess. To solve this dreadful crime, Lola and Miss Fletcher must navigate the depths of respectable society. But will their determination suffice in a city where fortune, secrets, men, and appearances reign supreme?

              Together in a Sudden Strangeness: America's Poets Respond to the Pandemic (Hardback)

              In this urgent outpouring of American voices, our poets speak to us about the greatest global crisis of our time, addressing our collective fear, grief, and hope from eloquent and diverse individual perspectives. As the novel coronavirus and its devastating effects began to sprea...d in the United States and around the world, Alice Quinn reached out to poets across the country to see if, and what, they were writing under quarantine. Overwhelmed by the response, the onetime New Yorker poetry editor and recent former director of the Poetry Society of America began collecting the compassionate verses that were arriving in her inbox, assembling this various, intimate, and intricate portrait of our suddenly altered reality. Whether grieving for relatives they are separated from, contemplating our narrowed life during a soak in the tub, tending to children and gardens and making essential shopping lists, recovering from illness themselves, or considering the fate of inmates and the bravery of medical workers, our poets are just like us, but with the words to describe what can feel unspeakably difficult and strange. From sorrowful and resilient to wistful, fierce, darkly humorous, and emblematically reverent about the earth and the vulnerability of human beings in frightening times, the poems in this collection provide wisdom and companionship, depths of feeling that enliven our spirits, and a poignant summoning to the page of spring's inevitable return.
