#MMBBR #Review #TheMissingWife by @sheilaoflanagan #SheilaOFlanagan #HeadlineReview


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was great. It captures the false illusion of perfection. Imogen blows the top off the "prefect marriage" illusion after she takes off leaving everything behind. Big changes take big chances. I loved Imogen did what she needed to do to find her happiness. The setting is fantastic, Imogen is brave, human and strong. A beautifully woven tale illustrating how our past and present leads us to where you need to be. It was a great spring read and one that I recommend.

The Craving Cure: Identify Your Craving Type to Activate Your Natural Appetite Control

Drop Addictive Sweets and Starches--and Stop Weight Gain--in 24 Hours 

Featuring a 5-part questionnaire to help you identify your personal craving profile
Julia Ross, best-selling author and expert in nutrition and overeating, exposes the real reason so many of us can’t stick to a healthy diet: our favorite foods are engineered to be addictive. At her clinic in California, Ross and her colleagues treat food addiction where it starts--in the brain--by triggering our natural appetite-regulating neurotransmitters with nutrients called amino acids. It turns out that these protein concentrates boost our neurotransmitters, which broadcast sensations of satisfaction that no food, including chocolate, can override. Thousands of Ross’ clients have abolished their cravings for high-calorie confections using this simple nutritional strategy.
With The Craving Cure, Ross grants all of us access to this revolutionary approach. The process begins with a five-part questionnaire that helps you identify your unique craving profile and specifies the amino acid supplements you need to curb your specific cravings. Ross’ clear explanations of why and how to use the aminos empower you to reclaim your natural appetite control, and her anti-craving eating guidelines will permanently strengthen your dietary defenses. A well-researched and clinically-tested rejection of low-calorie, low-saturated fat, and low-protein diets, The Craving Cure reveals how we can effortlessly and permanently eradicate our cravings to lose weight, rediscover our nutritional heritage, and regain optimal mood, energy, and health.

This is another book I had for review, but then ended up listening to it. It was a delight and kept me at the edge of my seat. What a fantastic listen. The story was intense, well paced with characters I enjoyed. I loved the suspense. I found myself sitting in the car in the driveway not wanting to come in because I was listening. A great listen!!!

How far must you run to leave the past behind in order to find love?
In Where the Wild Cherries Grow by Laura Madeleine, it is 1919, and the end of the war has not brought peace for Emeline Vane. Lost in grief, she is suddenly alone at the heart of a depleted family. And just as everything seems to be slipping beyond her control, in a moment of desperation, she boards a train and runs away.
Her journey leads her to a tiny seaside village in the South of France. Taken in by café owner Maman and her twenty-year-old son, Emeline discovers a world completely new to her: of oranges, olives and wild herbs, the raw, rich tastes of the land. But soon secrets from home begin blowing in on the sea waves.
Fifty years later, Bill Perch, a young solicitor on his first case, finds Emeline’s diary, and begins to trace an anguished story of betrayal and love that will send him on a journey to discover the truth.
What really happened to Emeline all those years ago?

A research-based guide to navigating the newest dating phenomenon--"the love gap"--and a trailblazing action plan to help smart, confident, career-driven women find (and keep) their match.
For a rising generation young women, the sky is the limit. Women can be anything and have everything. They are outpacing their male peers in higher education and earning the corner office at work. Smart, driven, assertive women are succeeding at just about everything they do--except romance.
Why are so many men afraid to date smart women?
Modern men claim to want smarts, success, and independence in romantic partners. Or so says the data collected by scientists and dating websites. If that's the case, why are so many independent, successful women winning in life, but losing in love? Journalist Jenna Birch has finally named the perplexing reason: "the love gap"--or that confusing rift between who men say they want to date and who they actually commit to. Backed by extensive data, research, in-depth interviews with experts and real-life relationship stories, THE LOVE GAP is the first book to explore the most talked-about dating trend today. The guide also establishes a new framework for navigating modern relationships, and the tricky new gender dynamics that impact them. Women can, and should, have it all without settling.

Jenna Birch is a health and lifestyle journalist. Her work appears frequently in print and online publications including Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Self, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, Psychology Today, Health, Women's Health and Yahoo, among many others.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

City of Endless Night is a great read. I never read any of the other novels in this series, but I found this one to be fantastic. I had a copy of the book for review, but then bought it on Audible and listened to it. I loved the audible version. It really pulled me into the book; the setting, characters and story were amazing. The narrator did a great job too. I recommend this for anyone looking for a fantastic listen!
