From #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery comes a reader-favorite tale of starting over and finding love where you least expect it. Carly Spencer is almost 40, and her life hasn't exactly gone as planned. Weeks away from her big birthday, she finds herself on the brink of divorce—from a husband whose need to “find himself” apparently involves leaving his family and his job so he can sail to Hawaii—and on her way back to her childhood home with her smart-mouthed teenaged daughter, Tiffany, in tow. At least her hometown can offer her the serenity of the ocean. Chatsworth-by-the-Sea, a sprawling B&B on the rugged northern California coast, is where Carly grew up. Now that life has thrown her a massive curveball, she's decided to help her widowed mother, Rhonda, run the place. But between Tiffany's teenage angst and Rhonda's incessant nagging, Carly's homecoming proves to be anything but peaceful. And when she decides to use the rumors that Chatsworth is haunted to drive new business, she winds up with a real-life ghost hunter as a guest. A stunningly attractive ghost hunter, who seems just as interested in Carly as her haunted house…

From the New York Times bestselling author of Hallelujah Anyway, Bird by Bird, and Almost Everything, a spiritual antidote to anxiety and despair in increasingly fraught times. As Anne Lamott knows, the world is a dangerous place. Terrorism and war have become the new normal. Environmental devastation looms even closer. And there are personal demands on her faith as well: getting older; her mother's Alzheimer's; her son's adolescence; and the passing of friends and time. Fortunately for those of us who are anxious about the state of the world, whose parents are also aging and dying, whose children are growing harder to recognize as they become teenagers, Plan B offers hope that we’re not alone in the midst of despair. It shares with us Lamott's ability to comfort and to make us laugh despite the grim realities. Anne Lamott is one of our most beloved writers, and Plan B is a book more necessary now than ever. It is further evidence that, as The New Yorker has written, "Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration."

You have a new venture in mind. And you've crafted a business plan so detailed it's a work of art. Don't get too attached to it. As John Mullins and Randy Komisar explain in Getting to Plan B, new businesses are fraught with uncertainty. To succeed, you must change the plan in real time as the inevitable challenges arise. In fact, studies show that entrepreneurs who stick slavishly to their Plan A stand a greater chance of failing-and that many successful businesses barely resemble their founders' original idea. The authors provide a rigorous process for stress testing your Plan A and determining how to alter it so your business makes money, solves customers' needs, and endures. You'll discover strategies for: -Identifying the leap-of-faith assumptions hidden in your plan -Testing those assumptions and unearthing why the plan might not work -Reconfiguring the five components of your business model-revenue model, gross margin model, operating model, working capital model, and investment model-to create a sounder Plan B. Filled with success stories and cautionary tales, this book offers real cases illustrating the authors' unique process. Whether your idea is for a start-up or a new business unit within your organization, Getting to Plan B contains the road map you need to reach success.

From the author of The Architecture of Happiness, a deeply moving meditation on how we can still benefit, without believing, from the wisdom, the beauty, and the consolatory power that religion has to offer. Alain de Botton was brought up in a committedly atheistic household, and though he was powerfully swayed by his parents' views, he underwent, in his mid-twenties, a crisis of faithlessness. His feelings of doubt about atheism had their origins in listening to Bach's cantatas, were further developed in the presence of certain Bellini Madonnas, and became overwhelming with an introduction to Zen architecture. However, it was not until his father's death -- buried under a Hebrew headstone in a Jewish cemetery because he had intriguingly omitted to make more secular arrangements -- that Alain began to face the full degree of his ambivalence regarding the views of religion that he had dutifully accepted. Why are we presented with the curious choice between either committing to peculiar concepts about immaterial deities or letting go entirely of a host of consoling, subtle and effective rituals and practices for which there is no equivalent in secular society? Why do we bristle at the mention of the word "morality"? Flee from the idea that art should be uplifting, or have an ethical purpose? Why don't we build temples? What mechanisms do we have for expressing gratitude? The challenge that de Botton addresses in his book: how to separate ideas and practices from the religious institutions that have laid claim to them. In Religion for Atheists is an argument to free our soul-related needs from the particular influence of religions, even if it is, paradoxically, the study of religion that will allow us to rediscover and rearticulate those needs.

In this book, "Your Plan B was always God's Plan A", I attempt to identify and explore various mistakes and disasters that seemingly beset many of the biblical champions of faith. Upon closer examination of these difficult events, we find these "errors" and "problems", far from being obstacles preventing the accomplishment of the will of God, are in fact part of the will of God that they are seemingly derailing. One such example of this would be the death of Jesus on the cross. Things were going so well for Jesus and the disciples and the thousands who he was helping, until his abrupt arrest and execution. For the disciples, Jesus death was a disaster that marked the end everything, extinguishing all hope for their bright future... until Mary Magdalene, laughing, crying, shaking and stammering returned from the sepulcher with the news! He's alive! His death, burial, and resurrection being the greatest thing that man has ever known.Today in our Christian walk, as we attempt to do the will of God, our best laid plans and purest intentions can be washed out to sea by a cruel tsunami, never to be seen again. This can leaves us bewildered and perplexed while holding the broken pieces of the shattered dreams of our "Plan A". And it is all the will of God...

Every day and everywhere, everyone can live a powerful life of Kingdom impact ... Jesus-style! One ordinary life making a powerful difference—that's God's amazing "Plan A" on display. Using real-life, riveting stories and a contemporary scriptural lens, Dwight Robertson shows how God's exciting kingdom-building plan takes life—literally—in ordinary individuals. Robertson explains how God calls and equips average, everyday people—even those who don't think they have anything special to contribute—to creative ministries that are as distinct and unique as the individual. God's Plan A encourages average Christians everywhere to follow the model of Jesus: ministering up close, one life at a time, outside church walls in our everyday lives. God's Plan A involves all of us ... and there is no Plan B.
