Jolie Gentil and friends are putting the finishing touches on the Talk Like a Pirate Day fundraiser for the food pantry and trying to figure out who's breaking into some of the houses Jolie appraises. When she realizes a new face in town is leading high school kids into trouble in those houses, she's mad and lets him know it. But Hayden offers to help her mind her own business, and a lot of people at the fundraiser hear her give him what for. A hurricane's on the way to disrupt the fundraiser, and when a corpse turns up under the pirate ship the next day, someone wants to be sure Jolie looks like a suspect. When her car gets run into a ditch, Jolie knows someone is seriously mad at her. Soon she's getting less work. Who wants a murder suspect appraising their house? Scoobie's pirate limericks can't solve a crime, so Jolie and her sometimes buddy local reporter George Winters look for the murderer and try to figure out who's trying to frame Jolie. They need to stay ahead of whoever's mad at her and off the radar of the local police who tell Jolie -- for the hundredth time -- to butt out. For a cozy mystery with a dose of humor and a touch of romance, join Jolie and friends in Ocean Alley.
A realistic contemporary story of two girls whose divorced parents begin to date—perfect for fans of Lisa Graff, Sara Pennypacker, and Rita Williams-Garcia. “A smart, endearing story about two girls who are blending families, growing up, and building a friendship.” (Kirkus starred review) Other than their first names, Naomi Marie and Naomi Edith are sure they have nothing in common, and they wouldn’t mind keeping it that way. Naomi Marie starts clubs at the library and adores being a big sister. Naomi Edith loves quiet Saturdays and hanging with her best friend in her backyard. And while Naomi Marie’s father lives a few blocks away, Naomi Edith wonders how she’s supposed to get through each day a whole country apart from her mother. When Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi Edith’s dad get serious about dating, each girl tries to cling to the life she knows and loves. Then their parents push them into attending a class together, where they might just have to find a way to work with each other—and maybe even join forces to find new ways to define family.

And he must face the greatest challenge of his life. To understand the speed of dark.

My grandmother made the best cookies, period. It didn’t matter what time the year it was, it didn’t matter what day the week it was. When we visited my grandmother, she ALWAYS had one or two kinds of homemade cookies waiting for us. Christmas at my grandmother’s was special. She would have DOZENS of cookie varieties for our family and every guest that came to visit. We swear that she started baking those batches in September just to be ready for the holidays. From her small kitchen she would produce thousands of the most amazing cookies for all to enjoy! I once asked my grandmother what her favorite cookie was, and she told me that they were all her favorites. She elaborated that it wasn’t because they were delicious, it was because her family and friends thought they were delicious. When my grandmother passed, we found a few pieces of paper tucked into the pages of a notebook with her cookie recipes written in her beautiful handwriting. Missing were some recipes, like her vanilla sugar wafers (we believe that she made those from memory), but the recipes for almost all of the cookies she ever made were there. Some instructions were in bits and pieces, but we were able to recreate them fairly accurately. For the first time, I present to you my Grandmother’s all-time favorite cookie recipes. I hope that you make each of these, find your favorite, and share them with your family and friends.
