Blending mystery, romance, and urban fantasy with a dash of horror, this witty New Adult novel follows four quirky friends on a cross-country, paranormal investigation. Sadie Smith was absolutely certain of three things: (1) ghosts were indisputably real; (2) she and her three friends were some of the best (though not the most successful) ghost hunters in Oregon; (3) her teammate Jefferson Parrish was always the scariest thing in the room. But ghosts—unsurprisingly—can't help pay the rent. So when Sadie and her friends are offered an undisclosed sum of money from an anonymous client to find a link between four historical haunted locations, it's an easy sell. During their investigation, Sadie finds herself forgetting about Jefferson's macabre tendencies and falling for his sweetness, even if his idea of a love letter reads more like a note from a serial killer. As Sadie's feelings get more tangled up with Jefferson, their group puts together the final pieces of a 100-year-old mystery—one that will change Sadie's life forever.

When the bullet pierced her father's heart and he crumpled to the floor of his convenience store, it changed Janey Santiago's life forever. At first she wasn't even sure if she was alive or dead as she watched a strange blue light shift from his body to hers. In his final moments he handed Janey his mask, confirming her suspicions that he was indeed the vigilante fighting the local cartels. Janey felt a surge of energy and knew it was her time to carry on her father's work. With the guidance of Augusto-her father's mysterious, young right-hand man-and enigmatic parallels from her favorite comic book series, Janey must learn how to use her mysterious new abilities to fight back against the gangsters that killed her father and threaten to overtake her town. This is the first in a series-The Thunderbird Chronicles. "Mystery, romance and suspense in the West Texas Desert! A great, fast-paced, supernatural action/adventure. Janey Santiago is the strong, inspiring, cynical but hopeful, down-to-earth heroine that we've all been waiting for. The intriguing, believable characters, and engaging plot left me hungry for the next book! I can't wait to find out what is in store for Janey Santiago and her handsome, bad-boy mentor, Augusto, as they work for justice in West Texas, and the border towns of Mexico." - Lynn P. Sutton, author of Animally.

It is an upside-down childhood. Monique’s mother, "Maria," is a beautiful, magnetic, dizzyingly smart woman. And she's an unsolvable Rubik’s Cube who believes her life is a never-ending one-act play, with just one character. Vacillating between her many roles—doting mother, long-suffering saint, victim of everyone (especially her unbalanced psychiatrist ex-husband)—she is willing to act for any audience, including her six children. In this vibrant memoir, Monique Parrish chronicles Maria’s profound neglect, indifference, and manipulation—and her own decades-long chase to win her mother’s love. Once Monique makes the difficult decision to separate herself from her mother, she realizes that while she will never matter to her mother, she matters to herself. In finally making this break, she also comes to own and embrace the scars of her childhood, discovering in the process that they represent her strength, survival, and courage.

Sister—as she was always called by family and friends—was born Dorothy May Kinnicutt into a patrician New York family in 1910 and spent her privileged early life at the right schools, yacht clubs, and coming-out parties. Compelled to work during the lean years of the Depression, Sister combined her innate design ability with her upper-echelon social connections to create an extraordinarily successful interior decorating business. The Parish-Hadley firm’s list of clients reads like an American Who’s Who, starting with Astors, Kennedys, Paleys, Rockefellers, and Whitneys. She helped Jacqueline Kennedy transform the White House from a fusty hodge-podge into a historically authentic symbol of American elegance. For her clients, she was an indispensable presence, both in their salons and designing them. Sister’s style, marked by cozy, airy, colorful, but understated elegance, came to be known as "American country," and its influence continues to this day. Compiled by Apple Parish Bartlett (one of Sister’s daughters) and Susan Bartlett Crater (a granddaughter) from Sister’s own unpublished memoirs, as well as from hundreds of interviews with family members, friends, staff, world-renowned interior designers (Mark Hampton, Mario Buatta, Keith Irvine, Bunny Williams, and her long-time partner Albert Hadley, among many others), and clients (Annette de la Renta, Glenn Bernbaum, Mrs. Thomas Watson, et al.), Sister Parish takes the reader right into the houses—and the lives—of some of the most fascinating and famous people of this inimitable woman’s time. Long out of print, this acclaimed biography—a New York Times Notable Book—of the doyenne of American interior design is once again available to acquaint a whole new generation of designers and design lovers with the charismatic woman who redefined interior design in America. Fully updated, the revised edition features a new Foreword by Albert Hadley and an Appreciation by Bunny Williams, who began her career at Parish-Hadley. A New York Times Notable Book Praise for Sister Parish: "Sister Parish’s reminiscences, along with those of her friends and admirers, bear a remarkable resemblance to what one remembers about her interior decorating—warm, personable, cozy, thoughtful, harmonious, satisfying, impeccable. An enchanting compilation."—George Plimpton "In my novel People Like Us, I based the character of the famous society decorator Cora Mandell on Sister Parish. Apple Parish Bartlett and Susan Bartlett Crater have presented a loving portrait of her, as well as a superb social history of her era."—Dominick Dunne "If you love design, history and a good biography, you are sure to enjoy this book!"—Annechovie blog "What makes this biography so enjoyable is that it compiles Sister's own unpublished memoirs with stories from family members, friends, staff, clients and world-renowned interior designers. . . . All generations of decorators and designers will appreciate this look at the life of this American icon." —From the Right Bank blog "Compiled from Sister's unpublished memoirs and augmented by many interviews with friends, family, staff and fellow design icons, it is a wonderful insider look at an era and a life." —Quintessence blog "This book is a MUST HAVE for any design library of substance or design student." —Architect Design blog
