Fish For Life: A Remarkable Way To Achieve Your Dreams
by Stephen C. Lundin
The internationally acclaimed business bestseller Fish! and follow ups Fish! Tales and Fish! Sticks have been a massive global success - with over a million copies sold in the States and over 400,000 copies in the UK. Now, for the first time, we're shown how to put the unique Fish! Philosophy into action in all areas of our lives, ranging from losing weight to improving our personal finances. Using the same easy-to-read parable format used in the original Fish! title, this is a both a true follow-up to that book (featuring two of the original characters) and a stand-alone work that can be read on its own.

Through its unfolding story, we witness the many challenges encountered by a newly created family as they start building a life together - working parents, growing family, school tension, economic stress, and weight gain - and just how they are overcome. From this appealing metaphor we can obtain accessible wisdom and applicable insights which can be applied for achieving happiness and wellbeing in our own lives.

The Christmas Thief
by Mary Higgins Clark
Alvirah Meehan, the lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, teams up with private investigator Regan Reilly to solve another Christmas mystery. This time they get in the middle of a case involving a beautiful eighty-foot blue spruce that has been chosen to spend the holidays as Rockefeller Center's famous Christmas tree. The folks who picked the tree don't have a clue that attached to one of its branches is a flask chock-full of priceless diamonds that Packy Noonan, a scam artist just released from prison, had hidden there over twelve years ago.

An excited Packy breaks his parole and heads to Stowe, Vermont, to reclaim his loot. Once there, he is horrified to discover that his special tree will be heading to New York City the next morning. With a bumbling crew consisting of Jo-Jo, Benny, and an unsuccessful poet, Milo, he knows he has to act fast. What Packy does not know is that Alvirah and Regan are on hot on his heels.
