The hilarious and poignant new novel from the best selling author of The Kicking the Bucket List. When a boxset of Broadchurch is more appealing than having sex with your husband, then perhaps it's time to hide the remote... Cait and Matt have been married for 30 years. They are rock solid. An inspiration to others. Stuck together like glue. But Cait can't shake off the feeling that something is missing. The whole world should be their oyster now that Matt has retired, so why does she feel shut up like a clam? Things get more complicated when Tom Lewis, the man who broke her heart at university, makes a reappearance - still as charming as ever. Her friends, widow Lorna and newly-single Debs, have their own views of what Cait should do - but she isn't in the mood to listen. When Tom makes Cait an unexpected offer, Cait feels the pull of a different life. Has she got the guts to take the plunge, or does it take more courage to give her marriage another chance? Funny and thoughtful, this is a book for anyone who ever wondered . . . what if?

Writing down the things you’d like to see and do before you die can be a fun experience. But simply writing a Bucket List and never actually doing anything on the list is a lesson in futility and frustration with yourself. Why can’t you ever reach your goals? Don't beat yourself up - get out there and live life! Author Annette White has made a second career out of writing her bucket list… and then crossing things off of it! One day this owner of a Michelin-recommended restaurant in Northern California decided to live her dream. On her popular blog, bucketlistjourney.net, she has chronicled her adventures on virtually every continent — from walking among wildebeests in Africa to climbing an active volcano in Guatemala to swimming in a lake in Palau surrounded by thousands of jellyfish. In Bucket List Adventures, she takes you along for the ride, and shows you how to live your adventures, too. Bucket List Adventures is not only a practical travel book – sharing detailed information on lodging, helpful resources, etc. – but also an inspiration for people to step out of their comfort zones. In short, Annette helps readers to create their own Bucket List, and then she gives them the tools and encouragement they need to live that list. An extensive appendix includes information about 50 additional places to consider for your future adventures. Imagine the sense of accomplishment and excitement when you finally reach your goals, and Bucket List Adventures wants to help you get there.

The septuagenarian women of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club have gathered in secret late one July night to check skinny-dipping off their bucket list. But as Francine observes, the jittery members seem more obsessed with body issues and elaborate preparations than actually stripping down and getting in the pool. A pungent smell emanating from the pool shed provides a perfect distraction. When a dead body flops out, it’s an answered prayer for Charlotte, since the first item on her list is to solve a murder. Unfortunately for Charlotte and Francine, before they can discover who really killed the man, they must negotiate neighborhood tours of the crime scene, press coverage of their skinny-dipping, an angry homeowners’ association, a disastrous appearance on Good Morning America, media offers sought by a hungry publicist, and a clever killer. Praise: “Bubbly characters keep this cozy debut lively as you search through the red herrings for the big fish.”—Kirkus Reviews "A well-crafted mystery."—New York Journal of Books "Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to Elizabeth Perona's charming debut, Murder on the Bucket List. This warm and witty caper features delightful characters, hilarious antics, and a celebration of friendship . . . Don't miss it!"—Julie Hyzy, New York Times bestselling author of The White House Chef Mysteries and The Manor House Mysteries "Elizabeth Perona mixes murder, mystery and a charming cast of characters to concoct an engaging and fun read. High on ingenuity and imagination, low on gore, Murder on the Bucket List keeps the reader guessing."—Mary Jane Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Cake Mysteries and The Key News Thrillers "Murder on the Bucket List is the best kind of cozy mystery—inviting, engaging, intelligent, warm, and witty. Elizabeth Perona's ensemble cast of senior sleuths puts out a welcome mat I couldn't refuse, and you shouldn't either."—Molly McRae, national bestselling author of The Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries "Elizabeth Perona has created a wonderfully light read, with a fun combo of race cars, suburban life, adventurous seniors, and a killer I did not see coming.

As girls growing up in Clare Valley, Australia, Anna, Bett, and Carrie Quinlan were childhood singing stars known as The Alphabet Sisters. The unbridled enthusiasm of their flamboyant grandmother Lola was the glue that held them together. As adults, though, the women haven’t spoken in years–ever since Bett’s fiancé deserted her to marry the younger Carrie. Now Lola is turning eighty and she is determined to reunite the girls for a blowout bash. And no one ever says no to Lola. Bett, who fled to London after the scandal of losing her fiancé, is hesitant to face her sisters and her hometown–especially since she has yet to find another man. Sophisticated Anna, the eldest sister, isn’t too keen on the prospect either, though she’s secretly grateful for any excuse to leave her crumbling marriage behind in Sydney. And Carrie, who remained in Clare Valley, is perhaps the most apprehensive. Her marriage–the nominal cause of the sisters’ estrangement–is also on the rocks. Was she wrong to have followed her heart and run off with Bett’s fiancé? When Lola shares her special request, that the girls stage a musical she has written, their short visit becomes a much longer commitment. As they are forced to spend more time together, the sisters must confront the pain that lingers between them. Preconceptions and misunderstandings are slowly put aside and the three find themselves gradually, irresistibly enveloping one another once again–until an unexpected turn of events changes everything in ways none of them could have ever imagined. . . . Layering the lighthearted antics of small-town life with a heartbreaking story of loyalty lost and found, The Alphabet Sisters is an unforgettable story of two generations of women who learn that being true to themselves means being true to one another. BONUS: This edition contains excerpts from Monica McInerney's Lola's Secret, At Home with the Templetons, The Faraday Girls, Family Baggage, Greetings from Somewhere Else, and Upside Down Inside Out.
