Stealing Jason Wilde Dee Ernst
After her divorce, librarian Annie Reynolds thought she’d closed the book on love for good — it just wasn’t part of her safe, comfortable routine. But if there’s anyplace she can relax and have a little fun, it’s Dune Road, where she and her closest girlfriends return for their annual getaway in the Hamptons. She knows it’s just what she needs to escape her empty nest (and empty bed).
A chance encounter with a ruggedly handsome local promises Annie just that. But when one of her friends meets B-list movie star Jason Wilde — and Jason accidentally mixes a few drinks and his back-pain medicine — the ladies end up with a very high-profile houseguest. The media calls it a kidnapping, and before long, the FBI is on the hunt. Soon the ladies’ tame little trip has turned into the adventure of a lifetime.

And as Christians, such experiences can be accompanied by a great sense of anguish and fear.

Jump-Starting Boys Pam Withers, Cynthia Gill
Everyone knows that boys are falling behind in education. Largely left out of the discussion are parents of boys, who are most aware that their bright, eager sons hit an invisible wall somewhere near fourth grade, after which they become disengaged, discouraged, and disaffected. There are dozens of books on underachieving boys, but most parents brave enough to lift one off the shelf are instantly intimidated by the footnotes, graphs, case studies, and academic-speak addressed almost entirely to educators. What about the average guilt-ridden, frustrated mother or father of an underachieving boy? Jump-Starting Boys is the first book on the market that empowers parents, helping them reclaim the duties and rewards of raising their children and navigate the influences of school and media. Filled with reassurance and support, the authors turn fear and guilt into can-do confidence. Through easy tips and action list sidebars, this is the most practical, readable book on the topic.
