She picked the winning numbers. She won millions. Is that why she was murdered?<br /><br />But who did it? Melissa’s no-good uncle or her ex-con brother who she hasn’t seen for years? Could they both be prime suspects? And what about her maid and her abusive husband-to-be? Is being known as a prominent philanthropist or antique collector a reason to commit murder? Yes, Palm Springs, California, is like a different world to most people, but is it different enough that ego justifies murder?<br /><br />And are the rich really that much different than you and me?<br /><br />When Marty’s wealthy new appraisal client is murdered, things get messy. Her husband’s the lead detective on the case, and he needs her to help him solve the murder. <br /><br />Can Marty’s psychic sister help? How can Patron, her young boxer dog, seem to sense when she’s in danger? And what about the ghost her sister sees? Could she really be the murder victim’s mother?<br /><br />This is Book 6 in the popular High Desert Cozy Mystery series by USA Today Bestselling Author and seven-time Amazon All-Star, Dianne Harman. <br />

<b>An extraordinary and beautifully illustrated exploration of the medieval world through twelve manuscripts, from one of the world's leading experts.<br /><br /><b>Winner of The Wolfson History Prize and The Duff Cooper Prize.<br /><br /></b>A <i>San Francisco Chronicle </i>Holiday Book Gift Guide Pick! </b><br />  <br /><i>Meetings with Remarkable Manuscripts </i>is a captivating examination of twelve illuminated manuscripts from the medieval period. Noted authority Christopher de Hamel invites the reader into intimate conversations with these texts to explore what they tell us about nearly a thousand years of medieval history - and about the modern world, too. <br /><br /> In so doing, de Hamel introduces us to kings, queens, saints, scribes, artists, librarians, thieves, dealers, and collectors. He traces the elaborate journeys that these exceptionally precious artifacts have made through time and shows us how they have been copied, how they have been embroiled in politics, how they have been regarded as objects of supreme beauty and as symbols of national identity, and who has owned them or lusted after them (and how we can tell).  <br /><br /> From the earliest book in medieval England to the incomparable Book of Kells to the oldest manuscript of the <i>Canterbury Tales</i>, these encounters tell a narrative of intellectual culture and art over the course of a millennium.   Two of the manuscripts visited are now in libraries of North America, the Morgan Library in New York and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.<br /><br /> Part travel book, part detective story, part conversation with the reader, <i>Meetings with Remarkable Manuscripts </i>allows us to experience some of the greatest works of art in our culture to give us a different perspective on history and on how we come by knowledge.

<h3><strong>#1 Amazon Best Seller ─ Coping With Loss</strong></h3><p><strong>The grieving process:</strong> Ty Alexander of <em>Gorgeous in Grey</em> is one of the top bloggers today. She has a tremendous personal connection with her readers. This is never more apparent than when she speaks about her mother. The pain of loss is universal. Yet, we all grieve differently. For Alexander, the grieving process is one that she lives with day-to-day. Learning from her pain, Alexander connects with her readers on a deeply emotional level in her debut book, <em>Things I Wish I Knew before My Mom Died: Coping with Loss Every Day</em>. From grief counseling to sharing insightful true stories, Alexander offers comfort, reassurance, and hope in the face of sorrow.</p><p><strong>Coping with loss:</strong> In her early 20’s reality smacked Ty in the face. She was ill equipped to deal with the emotional and intellectual rollercoaster of dealing with her mom’s illness. Through her own trial and error, she found a way to be a caregiver, patient advocate, researcher, and a grieving daughter. She wrote <em>Things I Wish I Knew before My Mom Died: Coping with Loss Every Day</em> to help others find the “best” way to cope and move on, however one personally decides what that means.</p><p><strong>Mourning and remembrance:</strong> In the chapters of this soul-touching book, mourners will find meaning and wisdom in grieving and the love that will always remain. Each chapter is a study and lesson in coping with loss:</p><ul><li>Chapter 1: We’ve been duped, everyone dies!</li><li>Chapter 2: The truth about my moderately dysfunctional family</li><li>Chapter 3: The Art Of Losing</li><li>Chapter 4: The how of grieving</li><li>Chapter 5: How to be obsessively grateful</li><li>Chapter 6: Dear Mama</li></ul>
