From recognizing the pitfalls of overfilled closets to combating the culture of busy that keeps women running from one thing to the next to finding life balance by learning how to let go of unhealthy habits and stress, listeners will journey with Ruth as they overcome chaotic, out-of-control schedules, overstuffed homes, and undernourished souls. 1.

Amber Sand is not a witch. The Sand family Wicca gene somehow leapfrogged over her. But she did get one highly specific magical talent: she can see true love. As a matchmaker, Amber´s pretty far down the sorcery food chain (even birthday party magicians rank higher), but after five seconds of eye contact, she can envision anyone´s soul mate. Amber works at her mother´s magic shop - Windy City Magic - in downtown Chicago, and she´s confident she´s seen every kind of happy ending there is: except for one - her own. (The Fates are tricky jerks that way.) So when Charlie Blitzman, the mayor´s son and most-desired boy in school, comes to her for help finding his father´s missing girlfriend, she´s distressed to find herself falling for him. Because while she can´t see her own match, she can see his - and it´s not Amber. How can she, an honest peddler of true love, pursue a boy she knows full well isn´t her match? The Best Kind of Magic is set in urban Chicago and will appeal to listeners who long for magic in the real world. With a sharp-witted and sassy heroine, a quirky cast of mystical beings, and a heady dose of adventure, this novel will have you laughing out loud and questioning your belief in happy endings. 1.

For years he has courted her through love letters. She is the sunshine of his soul.

It´s hard to make a dishonest buck in Sin City, especially when a rogue FBI agent is gunning for your head. Flat broke and one step ahead of the law, Daniel Faust flees Vegas and lands in Chicago, where a risky heist promises to fill his pockets with cash. There are the risks you can account for, and then there are the risks you never see coming, the ones that leave you blindsided and fighting to survive. Daniel is a stranger in a strange land, out of his element and surrounded by corrupt sorcerers, demons, and worse. Still, with a friend´s soul hanging in the balance - not to mention a pile of stolen cash - giving up isn´t an option. Before he´s done, Daniel will descend into the depths of Chicago´s occult netherworld, competing in an underground poker tournament where the winner takes all...and with the infernal Court of Night-Blooming Flowers running the show, ´´winner takes all´´ has an entirely new meaning. The Flowers haven´t forgotten Daniel´s past insults, and if they get their way, he´ll never leave the Windy City alive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Verner.
