Deadly Election: A Flavia Albia Mystery (Flavia Albia Series)

Product rating: 4.8 with 18 reviews


In the first century A.D., during Domitian’s reign, Flavia Albia is ready for a short break from her family. So despite the oppressive July heat, she returns to Rome, leaving them at their place on the coast. Albia, daughter of Marcus Didius Falco, the famed private informer (now retired), has taken up her father’s former profession, and it’s time to get back to work. The first order of business, however, is the corpse that was found in a chest sent as part of a large lot to be sold by the Falco family auction house. As the senior family representative in Rome, it falls upon Albia to identify the corpse, find out why he was killed, who killed him, and, most important, how did it end up in the chest.

At the same time, her potential young man, Faustus, comes looking for help with his friend Sextus’s political campaign. Between the auction business and Roman politics, it’s not quite clear which one is the more underhanded and duplicitous. Both, however, are tied together by the mysterious body in the chest, and if Albia isn’t able to solve that mystery, it won’t be the only body to drop.

Chasing River: A Novel (The Burying Water Series)

by: Atria Books

Product rating: 4.5 with 123 reviews


A suspense-driven New Adult romance novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water.

Armed with two years’ worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn’t let her die, but he also can’t be identified at the scene—so, he fled. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Pushing her away would be the smart move.

Maybe it’s because he saved her life, or maybe it’s because he’s completely different from everything she’s left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn’t the kind of guy she’d want to catch.

The Miracle Morning for Salespeople: The Fastest Way to Take Your SELF and Your SALES to the Next Level (The Miracle Morning Book Series) (Volume 3)

by: Hal Elrod International, Inc.

Product rating: 5.0 with 42 reviews


There are countless books written for salespeople about various sales techniques: prospecting, generating leads, building rapport, handling objections, closing the sale, collecting referrals, and providing excellent customer service. The list goes on and on. This is not one of those books. Most salespeople use these techniques daily, yet the majority still fail to achieve the results they want. So, what is the difference between “average” performers and the top 1% in your company or industry? Which strategies, mindsets, rituals, practices and systems do the top 1% maintain daily that got them to the top and continues to keep them there? The more you study the world’s top salespeople, in any industry, the more you realize that their success is a result of who they are more than merely what they do. Thus, logic would have it that if you want to take your SALES to the next level, you must first figure out how to take your SELF to the next level (because it only happens in that order). That’s exactly what this book will help you do, and faster than you ever realized is possible.

Legal Writing and Analysis (University Casebook Series)

by: Foundation Press

Product rating: 4.0 with 4 reviews


This law school text teaches the fundamentals of legal writing, analysis, and the American legal method. It fosters critical lawyering skills, such as how to identify a legal rule from a variety of sources, analyze and explain its components, apply the rule to answer a problem, and communicate the results in an effective manner. In the second edition, coverage of authority and rule formation have been streamlined and tightened. The authors have increased the visual appeal and content of callout boxes, charts, and tables; and they have replaced and shortened the length of examples so as to provide two to three times as many samples of practitioner writing in each chapter. With this new edition, the authors endeavor to train future lawyers to be ethical and professional issue-spotters, analysts, counselors, problem-solvers, and communicators working to advance their clients’ interests.
