Check Out These New Books Bound for the Bestseller List
by Lindsay Gifford
Southern fiction writer Karen White is no stranger to the New York Times bestseller list, and she is bringing yet another phenomenal book to the table. Based on her hometown of Milton, GA, newly released The Night the Lights Went Out is a mystery that will keep you guessing. With a small town suburban gossip chain, questionable friendships, plenty of secrets and a newly single mother trying to make a go of it, Karen unravels surprises galore. This one was hard to put down.
About the Book: Recently divorced, Merilee Talbot Dunlap moves with her two children to the Atlanta suburb of Sweet Apple, Georgia. It’s not her first time starting over, but her efforts at a new beginning aren’t helped by an anonymous local blog that dishes about the scandalous events that caused her marriage to fail.
Merilee finds some measure of peace in the cottage she is renting from town matriarch Sugar Prescott. Though stubborn and irascible, Sugar sees something of herself in Merilee—something that allows her to open up about her own colorful past.
Sugar’s stories give Merilee a different perspective on the town and its wealthy school moms in their tennis whites and shiny SUVs, and even on her new friendship with Heather Blackford. Merilee is charmed by the glamorous young mother’s seemingly perfect life and finds herself drawn into Heather’s world.
In a town like Sweet Apple, where sins and secrets are as likely to be found behind the walls of gated mansions as in the dark woods surrounding Merilee’s house, appearance is everything. But just how dangerous that deception can be will shock all three women….

On page 107 in New York Times best selling author, Jen Sincero’s new release, You are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth, there is a quote in the middle of the page. It simply states: “Your heart is the most powerful muscle in your body. Do what it says.” This is THE book to finally get your relationship and mindset in line with money in a positive way and leave financial troubles behind.
Jen doesn’t preach theory from a business pulpit that she has commanded with a gregariously high salary for years. She draws from her own experience of wanting to be a writer, undervaluing herself and ultimately transforming herself—over just a few years— from a woman living in a garage apartment with a barren bank account to a woman who now travels the world in style.
She had let herself get wrapped up in all the negative thoughts that come from having a lack of money and desperately digging your way out of debt and dearth.
In her first best seller, You Are a Badass, Jen dared us to stop doubting our greatness and start living an awesome life. Now she is taking it a step further and teaching us how to do the same with our financial life. Jen breaks down life-changing concepts into palatable, ready-to-implement advice and exercises that will help you kick your excuses to the curb, and use the almighty power of thought to create whatever riches you desire. She uses real-life stories, including an amazing one about actor/comedian Jim Carrey, to prove it can be done. She provides the tools to make the kind of money you’ve never made before.
Believe it or not what you can or can’t afford is all in your mind.
Jen Sincero teaches us this concept along with how to:
- Uncover what’s holding you back from making money.
- Relate to money in a new (and lucrative) way.
- Give your doubts, fear and excuses the heave-ho.
- Tap into your natural ability to grow rich.
- Shape your reality—stop playing victim to circumstance.
The bottom-line is you will enjoy Jen Sincero’s blunt practicality and witty wisdom. Her straightforward approach may be harsh for those still looking to hide behind excuses and wallow in complaints. But if you’re truly ready to change your financial situation for the better, this book should be your first investment.
