About the Book

All The Amazing Arden is the most notorious female illusionist of her day, renowned for sawing a man in half. One night, with policeman Virgil Holt in the audience, she swaps her saw for a fire ax. A new trick or an all-too-real murder? When a dead body is discovered, the answer seems clear. But under Holt's interrogation, what Arden’s story reveals is both unbelievable and spellbinding. Even handcuffed and alone, she is far from powerless. During one eerie night, Holt must decide whether to turn Arden in or set her free…and it will take all he has to see through the smoke and mirrors.

Praise for Pieces of My Mother

“Cistaro has a story to tell and one you don’t hear every day. I was deeply moved from word one.” —Kelly Corrigan, bestselling memoirist of The Middle Place, Lift, and Glitter and Glue

About the Book

Why would a mother ever abandon her child? And is an abandoned child destined to grow up and make the same mistake? These were some of Melissa Cistaro’s questions after her mother drove off without explanation one summer. Decades later, Melissa finds herself at her dying mother’s bedside with six days to find answers, fearful that she could do the same to her own little girl. Then she discovers a cache of letters her mother wrote but never sent and stumbles on the answers she’d been seeking. Haunting and ultimately uplifting, Pieces of My Mother is about the choices we make and their repercussions on others.

The Dogs Were Rescued (and So Was I)

We'll Always Have Paris

Teresa Rhyne and Seamus the beagle have both survived cancer once, so when Seamus develops yet another cancer, Teresa is devastated. She embarks on a massive lifestyle shift—embracing a more animal-friendly approach and trying to find her place somewhere between a hippie in a hemp skirt and a hypocrite in leather high heels. And then she realizes that Seamus wasn’t the only beagle who needed rescuing…
 
The Dogs Were Rescued (and So Was I) is the poignant yet hilarious exploration of how you move forward when you’ve done everything you can and it’s still not enough.
Jennifer Coburn has always been terrified of dying young. It’s the reason she drops everything each summer on a quest to travel through twelve European countries with her daughter, Katie, before it’s too late. Even though her husband can’t join them, even though she’s nervous about the journey, and even though she’s perfectly healthy, she spends three to four weeks a year jamming Katie’s mental photo album with memories. In this heartwearming generational love story, Jennifer reveals how their adventures helped relinquish her fear of dying…for the sake of living.
