**A USA Today Bestseller!**

The last twenty-five years have been all about her kids. But this summer is all about Jen.

Now that her boys are grown and on their own, widow Jen Watson is looking forward to having a whole summer at the family beach house all to herself. After all the summers at her beloved grandmother’s house with her boys—teaching them to swim, building sandcastles and having frozen bananas at the Fun Zone—it’s finally her turn to make new memories of her own.

After all these years, it’s no secret that the house her grandmother left to Jen, her father and brother needs more than a little TLC. Jen and her lifelong best friends are up for the job—there’ll be plenty of time for it between long walks on the beach, watching spectacular sunsets during happy hours on the deck and wiggling their toes in the sand.

When her family balks at spending any money on the house and finds out what the property is really worth, all their plans change.

But Jen and her friends are willing to do just about anything to protect Nana’s memories—and create even more, no matter what it takes.

Cozy up for this heart-warming series, where the bonds of friends and family run deep.

“An endearing tale” of friendship, love, and the choices we must make in their name from the New York Times bestselling author of A Thread of Truth (Manic Readers).
 
While New Bern, Connecticut, lies under a blanket of snow, the Cobbled Court Quilt Shop remains a cozy haven for its owner, Evelyn Dixon, and her friends. Evelyn relishes winter’s slower pace—besides, internet sales are hopping, thanks to her son Garrett’s efforts. In addition to helping out at the shop, Garrett has also been patiently waiting for his girlfriend, Liza, to finish art school in New York City. But as much as Evelyn loves Liza, she wonders if it’s a good idea for her son to be so serious, so soon, with a young woman who’s just getting ready to spread her wings . . .
 
Liza’s wondering the same thing—especially after Garrett rolls out the red carpet for a super-romantic New Year’s Eve—complete with marriage proposal. Garrett’s the closest thing to perfect she’s ever known, but what about her own imperfections? The only happy marriage Liza’s ever seen is her Aunt Abigail’s, and it took her decades to tie the knot. Soon, Liza is not only struggling with her own fears, but with the mixed reactions of her friends and family. And when she finds herself torn between a rare career opportunity and her love for Garrett, Liza must grasp at the thinnest of threads—and pray it holds . . .

Description:

Penny Pinching Tips for the Morally Bankrupt is a fantastically funny, wonderfully weird, and surprisingly sincere collection of short stories, humor pieces, and miscellaneous bits. In this explosively original debut, Libby Marshall plumbs the depths of suburban despair, female desire, and the ever-present feeling that death could claim us at any moment.

Debra, an unhappy billionaire’s wife, decides to resurrect the 18th-century trend of hiring a man to live on their property as an ornamental garden hermit. An elderly serial killer, bored by her dull nursing home existence, finds a deadly new purpose when her high school nemesis ends up living down the hall. In 1953 a young couple drives to Makeout Point where instead of an evening of heavy petting, they find mountain lions, a man with no gaps in his teeth, and the opportunity to kill Henry Kissinger. Within these pages, a man tries to date after losing his wife to The Salem Witch Trials, a Wi-Fi router gains sentience, a series of cardboard boxes oozing with smoky-sweet baked beans mysteriously appear at a woman’s front door, and a Chuck E. Cheese is haunted by the spirit of Princess Diana.

Boldly strange, deliciously satirical, and laugh-out-loud hilarious, Penny Pinching Tips for the Morally Bankrupt swings from the grim and ghastly to the exquisite and lovely. This one-of-a-kind book takes the reader on a surreal journey through the compulsory despair of daily life and concludes that the only sensible reaction to that much pain is laughter.
