A church party turns deadly for antiques dealer Lina Townend when she thwarts a thief in this British mystery. Helping out at a church fête is about the last thing Lina Townend wants to do on a beautiful summer’s afternoon. But since the vicar is an old friend, Lina finds herself agreeing to sell a bunch of bric-a-brac. Nothing too exciting happens at the harmless event—until someone tries to steal a tatty old snuff box. While the piece doesn’t look like much, it seems the box is valuable enough for the would-be thief to attack Lina’s business partner Griff, frame Lina for a crime—and kill an old friend. Lina never imagined a little old snuff box could cause so much trouble. Now, she has to clear her name by catching the real culprit, before anyone else gets snuffed out.

Book Description :

Few people associate law books with humor. Yet the legal world--in particular the American legal system--is itself frequently funny. Indeed, jokes about the profession are staples of American comedy. And there is actually humor within the world of law too: both lawyers and judges occasionally strive to be funny to deal with the drudgery of their duties. Just as importantly, though, our legal system is a strong regulator of humor. It encourages some types of humor while muzzling or punishing others. In a sense, law and humor engage a two-way feedback loop: humor provides the raw material for legal regulation and legal regulation inspires humor. In Guilty Pleasures, legal scholar Laura Little provides a multi-faceted account of American law and humor, looking at constraints on humor (and humor's effect on law), humor about law, and humor in law. In addition to interspersing amusing episodes from the legal world throughout the book, the book contains 75 New Yorker cartoons about lawyers and a preface by Bob Mankoff, the cartoon editor for the New Yorker.

Book Description :

One of Daphne Wade's guilty pleasures is to watch the Duke of Tremore as he works, shirtless, on the excavation site of his ducal estate. Anthony Courtland is by far the most exciting and handsome man she has ever known, and she dreams of one day being able to speak with him without getting tongue tied. Anthony, meanwhile, only sees Daphne as a hard worker on his excavation team. He considers her a plain young lady and says so in a careless remark to a friend, unaware that Daphne is outside the library door, her heart shattering to pieces. So Daphne decides she will not be so silly any longer. She begins to be tutored in the social graces, forcing Anthony to see the beauty who has been right in front of his eyes.

Book Description :

Guilty pleasures in one’s reading habits are nothing new. Late-nineteenth-century American literary culture even championed the idea that popular novels need not be great. Best-selling novels arrived in the public sphere as at once beloved and contested objects, an ambivalence that reflected and informed America’s cultural insecurity. This became a matter of nationhood as well as aesthetics: the amateurism of popular narratives resonated with the discourse of new nationhood. In Guilty Pleasures, Hugh McIntosh examines reactions to best-selling fiction in the United States from 1850 to 1920, including reader response to such best-sellers as Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Ben Hur, and Trilby as well as fictional representations—from Trollope to Baldwin—of American culture’s lack of artistic greatness. Drawing on a transatlantic archive of contemporary criticism, urban display, parody, and advertising, Guilty Pleasures thoroughly documents how the conflicted attitude toward popular novels shaped these ephemeral modes of response. Paying close attention to this material history of novel reading, McIntosh reveals how popular fiction’s unique status as socially saturating and aesthetically questionable inspired public reflection on what it meant to belong to a flawed national community.

Book Description :

"My guilty pleasure wasn’t just reading low-brow fiction or even female-authored fiction, it was being femme itself." What is it about ribald romance novels, luxurious interior design, and frothy wedding dresses that often make women feel their desires come with a shadow of shame? In Avidly Reads Guilty Pleasures, Arielle Zibrak considers the specifically pleasurable forms of feminine guilt and desire stimulated by supposedly “lowbrow” aesthetic tendencies. She takes up the overwhelming preoccupation with the experience of being humiliated, dominated, or even abused that has pervaded the stories that make up women’s culture—from eighteenth-century epistolary novels to popular twentieth-century teen magazine features to present-day romantic comedies. In three chapters—“Rough Sex,” “Expensive Sheets,” and “Saying Yes to the Dress”—that mirror the plot structures of feminine fictions themselves, this book tells the story of the desires that only the guiltiest of pleasures evoke. Zibrak reexamines documents of femme culture long dismissed as “trash” to reveal the surprisingly cathartic experiences produced by tales of domination, privilege, and the material trappings of the heteropatriarchy. Part of the Avidly Reads series, this slim book gives us a new way of looking at American culture. With the singular blend of personal reflection and cultural criticism featured in the series, Avidly Reads Guilty Pleasures reclaims women’s experiences for themselves.

Book Description :

Amid the dangers of WWII England, three women risk everything for love “sacrificing much to achieve their dreams . . . in this pleasurable historical romance” (Booklist). Southampton, 1940. As three women navigate the struggles of wartime England, their difficult choices—in love and survival—will bring them together and change their lives forever. For housewife Jenny, her husband’s word is law. But when he decides to enlist, she finds her own voice—and a new friendship with a young GI who becomes her guilty pleasure. Vibrant Rusty Dobbs is a prostitute by choice, and proudly makes a good living. But when she falls for an American captain, she pretends to be a typist to keep his respect—and win his love. And finally there is seventeen-year-old Sarah, who is drawn to the young prisoner of war Gunter—the enemy. If you follow your heart, there is always a price to pay. “Tate’s trademark complement of emotional interludes, nicely counterbalanced by intimate domestic detail, is on display [and] also offers a popular military setting in which even the antagonists are portrayed sympathetically.” —Booklist

Secrets. Lies. And a mysterious house… Heiress Willow Jackson didn’t do commitment. Her father was on his fifth…or maybe sixth…wife, so Willow had seen too often how lives could be destroyed by marriage and infidelity. But when she discovers that she’s inherited a house…from a grandmother her father hadn’t ever told her about, Willow is determined to learn more about this mysterious woman. What she wasn’t prepared for was the tall, intimidating man snapping at her from the doorway of the creepy house. Cooper Adams stepped into Willow’s life, big and terrifyingly handsome in a scary, sexy way. He wasn’t ready for the intense awareness and yearning that she would provoke inside of him. And Willow definitely wasn’t prepared for the sweet, caring way that Cooper took care of his grandmother, showing her that men weren’t all idiots and jerks. But could Willow take a chance on Cooper? Did she dare to uproot her whole life, knowing that marriage and love were only temporary things?
