It’s a hot August Saturday on Nantucket Island. Over the course of the next 24 hours, two lives will be transformed forever. Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for over a decade. This all changes with a phone call from Marguerite’s goddaughter, Renata Knox. Marguerite has not seen Renata since the death of Renata’s mother, Candace Harris Knox, 14 years earlier. And now that Renata is on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiancé, she takes the opportunity, against her father’s wishes, to contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her mother’s life - and death. But the events of the day spiral hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends up as planned. Welcome to The Love Season - a riveting story that takes place in one day and spans decades; a story that embraces the charming, pristine island of Nantucket, as well as Manhattan, Paris, and Morocco. Elin Hilderbrand’s most ambitious novel to date chronicles the famous couplings of real lives: love and friendship, food and wine, deception and betrayal - and forgiveness and healing. 1.

How a search for an exotic bird became a quest for love, forgiveness, and a new life. Birds, especially the ibis, have always fascinated Elize - that´s why she became an ornithologist. But when her boss at the private Texas coastal institute where she´s spent her career gives away her expected promotion, Elize flees to Morocco to lick her wounds and write a research paper that will prove her worth and secure her professional future. Morocco, with its impressive migration season, exotic flavors, and unwritten rules, is altogether foreign, even if many of the birds are familiar. After a brush with danger, Elize finds herself in Marrakesh, dependent on Erik, a sexy, mysterious stranger who makes her feel alive while opening her eyes to a new, intriguing world. After encountering her ornithology colleagues, who remind Elize of every bad professional choice and missed opportunity, she vows to find the Northern Bald Ibis - an endangered bird few have seen - and impress everyone. She and Erik journey from coastal paradise to remote desert mountains in search of the birds. Through misadventure, Elize is forced to trust an unknown culture, and through tragedy, she realizes that love and forgiveness are attainable. But first she must surrender her past and its pain to embrace her future and fly free. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dina Pearlman.

Brett and Kelly Courtney are the shining jewels in a New York-based reality TV show called Goal Diggers. One of the most popular shows on American national television, its fiercely competitive cast of five self-made women are defined by their success, beauty and ruthless drive to reach the top by whatever means necessary. The Courtney sisters´ rivalry goes skin deep despite the blossoming business they have built together that helps disadvantaged women in Morocco. Harbouring bitter jealousies and dark secrets about their manufactured screen lives, they´re joined by three other hypercompetitive women who all have their own agendas. And the latest season promises sparks to fly in the quest for even higher ratings. Vicious backstabbing, scathing social media attacks and finely tuned scripting draw in the viewing public every week, all orchestrated by the show´s omnipotent producers. But even they don´t know that season four will end in murder.... From the author of the best-selling debut novel of 2015 Luckiest Girl Alive comes Jessica Knoll´s new thriller, The Favourite Sister, featuring a pair of competitive and uber-successful sisters whose secrets and lies result in murder. 1.

Andrew Zimmern, the host of The Travel Channel´s hit series Bizarre Foods, has an extraordinarily well-earned reputation for traveling far and wide to seek out and sample anything and everything that´s consumed as food globally, from cow vein stew in Bolivia and giant flying ants in Uganda to raw camel kidneys in Ethiopia, putrefied shark in blood pudding in Iceland and Wolfgang Puck´s Hunan style rooster balls in Los Angeles.For Zimmern, local cuisine - bizarre, gross, or downright stomach-turning as it may be to us - is not simply what´s served at mealtime. It is a primary avenue to discovering what is most authentic - the bizarre truth - about cultures everywhere.Having eaten his way around the world over the course of four seasons of Bizarre Foods, Zimmern has now launched Bizarre Worlds, a new series on the Travel Channel, and this, his first book, a chronicle of his journeys as he not only tastes the ´´taboo treats´´ of the world, but delves deep into the cultures and lifestyles of far-flung locales and seeks the most prized of the modern traveler´s goals: The Authentic Experience. Written in the smart, often hilarious voice he uses to narrate his TV shows, Zimmern uses his adventures in ´´culinary anthropology´´ to illustrate such themes as: why visiting local markets can reveal more about destinations than museums; the importance of going to ´´the last stop on the subway´´ - the most remote area of a place where its essence is most often revealed; the need to seek out and catalog ´´the last bottle of coca-cola in the desert´´, i.e. disappearing foods and cultures; the profound differences between dining and eating; and the pleasures of snout to tail, local, fresh and organic food. Zimmern takes listeners into the back of a souk in Morocco where locals are eating a whole roasted lamb; along with a conch fisherman in Tobago, who may be the last of his kind; and to Mississippi, where he dines on raccoon and possum. 1.
