Virginia’s entire life needed a renovation, but it took inheriting her aunt’s island cottage to realize it. Crafting gourmet donuts, hanging out with her sister and maintaining her slightly off-kilter relationship, have become the epicenter of Virginia’s life. But when she looks in the mirror, she knows better than anyone that her self-esteem is shot. So when she inherits her beloved Aunt’s house in the quaint, neighboring island town of Sweetwater, she’s elated. That is, until her longtime boyfriend Jason convinces her to sell it so that they can pocket the money. The catch is, there are substantial fixes that need to be made before that can happen. On a recommendation, she hires Tristan, a cute, funny, church-going contractor, with a good heart and a dark secret. As Virginia puts more and more time into fixing up the old house, she rekindles her love of art and interior design, reflects on all the wonderful times she had in the house growing up, and spends time getting to re-know herself…and her new friend Tristan. Will Virginia be able to fix the cottage, along with her relationship with Jason? Or will one of the two end up being beyond a fixer-upper worth investing in? And if Virginia and Tristan combine their strengths, can they renovate the old home into something beautiful and anew? Join along to find out if each of them is able to find that wonderful things can be uncovered with a little sweat, proper attention, and some TLC.
Sometimes the person you love isn’t quite who you thought they were… Lord Richard Livingstone and Lady Helena Catesby have loved one another from afar for years, without either being sure how the other truly felt. When Helena goes to visit her brother and sister-in-law in London, she is excited for the opportunity to finally spend time with Lord Livingstone, as he is her brother’s closest friend. Richard is thrilled when he hears that Helena is coming to town, and plans to formally court her and ultimately confess his love for her. There is only one problem with his plan…and it is a problem that has haunted him for years, causing him to lie to all who know and love him. Helena’s stay in London starts well, except that every time she and Richard are together, he leaves at a moment’s notice. His affable charm has served him well for many years, causing his close friends to laugh off his flighty habit as a whimsical eccentricity, but Helena has had enough. She wants the truth and becomes determined to get answers…but instead, she may ultimately unearth a secret she may wish she never learned. Will Lord Livingstone be able to keep her from learning his dangerous secret, or will Helena put her life in the path of a killer…?
Each human being–on their journey and search for truth–must at some point reflect on life and answer important questions. Why am I here? Is there life beyond life as I now know it? How did the universe and man come into existence, and how does the answer affect me? In addition, each person must then make life or death decisions on the truth they uncover. This book addresses hard questions that accompany the search for truth. It also gives answers to win the lost and win back defectors. The Bible study guide is written for: those who struggle with faith, many times because of skewed perceptions or even anger; those who profess faith in the unseen, but find it difficult to live out; and finally those whose faith is strong, but who need information to combat the arguments and questions of others.

Satisfaction can be yours, but it might look different than you thought. Like a lot of young women, Tiffany Smiling had been assured that the path to fulfillment looked like the one she’d seen in her favorite movies: She’d be swept away by a soul mate, live in a southern estate, and start a family. But Tiffany’s story unfolded quite differently. Weeks after serving on her high school’s homecoming court, while doctors operated to remove the brain tumor that was killing her, Tiffany suffered a paralyzing stroke. In the nick of a scalpel she lost her beauty and most of her physical ability. Returning to high school in a wheelchair, head half-shaved and face distorted, Tiffany vowed to be normal and live the dream.
