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?

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. Can't wait for the next adventure of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club!"—Clare O'Donohue, author of The Someday Quilts Mysteries

“Emotional, hilarious, and thought-provoking.”—People *#1 Cosmo Best New Books of Summer* *Best Reads of Summer—PureWow* “Witty, sexy.” —Los Angeles Times “A crowd-pleaser.”—Publishers Weekly “A compelling, thoughtful take on a very real women's health issue; confidently sexy.”—Kirkus Reviews From the author of the critically acclaimed “lively and engrossing parable for women of all generations” (Harper’s Bazaar) The Regulars­ comes a deeply funny and thoughtful tale of a young woman who, after discovering she has the breast cancer gene, embarks on an unforgettable bucket list adventure. Twenty-five-old Lacey Whitman is blindsided when she’s diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene mutation: the “breast cancer” gene. Her high hereditary risk forces a decision: increased surveillance or the more radical step of a preventative double mastectomy. Lacey doesn't want to lose her breasts. For one, she’s juggling two career paths; her work with the prestigious New York trend forecaster Hoffman House, and her role on the founding team of a sustainable fashion app with friend/mentor, Vivian Chang. Secondly, small-town Lacey’s not so in touch with her sexuality: she doesn’t want to sacrifice her breasts before she’s had the chance to give them their hey-day. To help her make her choice, she (and her friends) creates a “boob bucket list”: everything she wants do with and for her boobs before a possible surgery. This kicks off a year of sensual exploration and sexual entertainment for the quick-witted Lacey Whitman. The Bucket List cleverly and compassionately explores Lacey’s relationship to her body and her future. Both are things Lacey thought she could control through hard work and sacrifice. But the future, it turns out, is more complicated than she could ever imagine. Featuring the pitch-perfect “compulsively delicious” (Redbook) prose of The Regulars, The Bucket List is perfect for fans of Amy Poeppel and Sophie Kinsella.

Refire! Don't Retire asks readers the all-important question: as you look at the years ahead, what can you do to make them satisfying and meaningful? Ken Blanchard and Morton Shaevitz point out that some people see their later years as a time to endure rather than as an exciting opportunity. Both research and common sense confirm that people who embrace these years with energy and gusto—rather than withdrawing and waiting for things to happen—consistently make the rest of their lives the best of their lives. In the trademark Ken Blanchard style, the authors tell the compelling story of Larry and Janice Sparks, who discover how to see each day as an opportunity to enhance their relationships, stimulate their minds, revitalize their bodies, and grow spiritually. As they learn to be open to new experiences, Larry and Janice rekindle passion in every area of their lives. Readers will find humor, practical information, and profound wisdom in Refire! Don't Retire. Best of all, they will be inspired to make all the years ahead truly worth living.

She may be seventy-five and recently widowed, but she's absolutely not dead yet. And so, one morning, Evie walks out of Sheldon Lodge and sets off on a Great Adventure across Europe.
