Reader Reviews: ★★★★★ Could not put these books down. The stories are delightfully clever and clean. One sweet romantic comedy after another. I cannot wait to read the next box set in the series. However, they are each easily stand alone reads. Highly recommend these books!! ★★★★★ Loved the books and the characters! Bridget Baker is a great author, drawing you into the stories from the beginning. My favorite character is little 5 year old Amy! She is so funny, but you need to read the first book for the full effect.. don't want to spoil it for you!! I can't say enough good things about this series. I can't wait to read the next set in the series! ★★★★★ These are the first books I've read by this author. The dialogue was delightful. I really enjoyed the plot and character development. They're very well written books. I will look for more books by this author. ★★★★★ These characters were so perfect for each other. I loved the character development, the cute dialogue, and the kids were great. Made me happy to read it! ★★★★★ Darling story - I loved these books so much - the romances felt real and believable and really nailed the slow burn. My fav were all the cute and witty conversations in person and through text that had me smiling through every page. I don’t say this very often but I’d go back and read these again! ★★★★★ I loved these books! I loved the whole series, as well. The characters are likable, the banter between them is funny and entertaining, and "clean romance" does not make it any less "swoony". I highly recommend it! After you read the first one, you will definitely want to read the rest.

The prevalence of dementia is increasing rapidly as the population ages and there is a steady rise in people with dementia being admitted to acute hospitals. Media coverage of the care received by people with dementia in acute hospitals is almost wholly negative. The purpose of this book is to provide a detailed description of what the experience, both positive and negative, is really like from the perspectives of patients, lay carers, and health and social care staff, and to propose a model for improving care. The book comprises four elements. A literature review sets person-focused research in the context of dementia research as a whole. Research illuminates the experiences of acute hospital care for people with dementia through ethnographic description and narratives. To improve practice, a development model that engages staff on a cognitive and emotional level based on the philosophies of confluent education and situated learning is explained. Finally, the strands are drawn together to demonstrate that people with dementia, even those at an advanced stage and with superimposed physical illness, can be engaged in research that is both ethical and meaningful. Improvements in practice are possible and they need to be underpinned by a belief in the personhood of staff as well as that of patients. Areas for further research and practice development in this vital subject are identified.

This book documents the heroic efforts of some of the nation’s most prolific cold case detectives. In collaboration the authors, these professionals share their insights, skills, and resources, using their most compelling cold cases as illustrations. The authors examine how cold case investigations differ from standard investigations and why cold case detectives sometimes have success where earlier investigators failed. They also discuss some of the pitfalls of reopening long-unsolved crimes, such as lost or compromised evidence and the difficulty of getting accurate information from witnesses who must rely on fading memories. Looking to the future, the authors discuss new technology that may someday allow investigators to drastically enhance surveillance videos and create a facial recognition database as accurate as DNA analysis and fingerprints. Both true crime readers and fellow law enforcement professionals will find the stories and expert insights described in this book to be fascinating and instructive.

In this marvelously original book, three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Leslie Savan offers fascinating insights into why we’re all talking the talk—Duh; Bring it on!; Bling; Whatever!—and what this reveals about America today. Savan traces the paths that phrases like these travel from obscure slang to pop stardom, selling everything from cars (ads for VWs, Mitsubishis, and Mercurys all pitch them as “no-brainer”s) to wars (finding WMD in Iraq was to be a “slam dunk”). Real people create these catchy phrases, but once media, politics, and businesses broadcast them, they burst out of our mouths as celebrity words, newly glamorous and powerful. Witty, fun, and full of thought-provoking stories about the origins of popular expressions, Slam Dunks and No-Brainers is for everyone who loves the mysteries of language.

Stories to guide you to success Awaken the hidden wisdom of your heart Live free of the seven deadly behavioral attributes that threaten to disrupt our lives! We can resolve most problems by applying the wisdom of our heart; all we have to do is listen carefully. However, in practice, a range of detrimental yet common attributes that we experience in large doses prevent us from listening to our inner voice. In The Code, author Mukta Mahajani identifies these negative attributes as the Ego, Over-Competitiveness, Jealousy, Overexpectations, Overambition, Anger and Procrastination. These attributes flare up when we face challenging situations. We explode when the world does not go our way and our relationships with others suffer as a result. Based on meaningful quotes from world leaders and revered religious texts, this book weaves short stories about the impact of these attributes. These narratives are designed to help us reset our mindset and resolve the issues we face in our day-to-day life. They help us understand that we have the inherent power to make the right choice at all times. Mukta Mahajani is an author and international speaker on Alternate Dispute Resolution methods with degrees in psychology, anthropology and law. In a career spanning over 20 years, Mukta has worked with the World Bank Group where her research has been published, and also guest lectured at New York City Bar Association, Mumbai University, ICADR Hyderabad and IIT Bombay among other institutions.
