"Thin Rich Bitches"
By Janet Eve Josselyn

“An uproarious romp through the minefield of female one-upmanship!”

Leaving her cheating husband in Boston with the paralegal he impregnated, Pippin Snowe and her son move to a ramshackle farmhouse that she inherited in the exclusive community of Dover, Massachusetts. Pippin finds employment with a local architect, designing kitchen renovations for wealthy Dover women who treat her as they treat the rest of the hired help. Concluding that social climbing is just another sport that she is no good at, Pippin opens a country club for dogs that offers services that the Dover women didn’t know they wanted until they found out that admission was required and spaces were limited.

With irreverent wit, Thin Rich Bitches is a humorous chronicle of one woman’s quest to find her place within a community of people who are more blessed physically and financially, while learning valuable lessons about life, love, competition, and canine couture.

"Thin Rich Bitches" is $2.99 for Kindle.

"Barefoot Girls"
By Tara McTiernan

The famous and beloved foursome – they are both things on Captain’s Island in the Great South Bay of Long Island, New York, where they grew up and developed their fun-loving defiantly-barefoot reputation – helped raise one little girl together, their “Barefoot Baby” Hannah. Now grown, Hannah has done the unthinkable and written a poison-pen novel that could tear apart not only her relationship with her mother and the other Barefoot Girls, but also pushes Hannah’s life into a downward spiral that threatens to destroy everything that matters to her including her engagement to Daniel, the one man who had been able to scale the high walls around her heart.

As Hannah battles to come to terms with her equally blessed and troubled childhood and understand her mother and her sister-close friends, she’s confronted with the power of forgiveness and the dangers of holding on to the past.
