Genre: Women's Fiction
Ah, the life of the upper-crust: decadent, flaky and not so good for the heart. Jane Lofton has everything she ever dreamed of: a high-powered career, a fabulous home, a wealthy husband, David, and a beautiful daughter, Brynn. Of course, David also has a new girlfriend spending his old money. Brynn also has a therapist helping her articulate her contempt for her mother. And Jane also has… …an obligation to the Man Upstairs. A chance meeting between her BMW and an eighteen-wheeler prompts Jane to make a deal: let her live and she'll dedicate herself to Doing Good. Whatever that means. Jane's platinum-card kung fu has taught her how to spend, but not how to give—turns out it's actually pretty hard! But when her country-club life crumbles, Jane is faced with an even bigger challenge: replacing all her dreams and salvaging her soul. Wise, witty and relentlessly real, The Social Climber of Davenport Heights (Originally published as Doing Good) is a story about discovering the difference between what something costs…and what it's worth.

Bitsy’s Bait & BBQ

"I just bought us a B&B on eBay!" While Emma Collins wonders who in their right mind would use her hard-won divorce settlement to purchase a bed-and-breakfast down in the Ozarks, her free-spirited sister Katy fantasizes dreamily about how this move to a small town will be just the thing for her six-year-old son, Josh. And, as usual, Emma is right. But it is not until they drive to Warbler Lake, Missouri, to take over Bitsy's B&B that they realize just how right she's been. In this part of the country, B&B stands for Bait & BBQ! The girls know little enough about running a bed-and-breakfast, but a bait-and-BBQ?

With the prospect of losing the little boy, the sisters face another challenger, only this time it's Katy who proves that she, too, can solve a problem. More info →
