She’s hired to throw a housewarming party for the brash and arrogant Tony Barnet, who’s eager to impress the big end of town. But when the party ends in disaster, Tony is quick to blame Emma, and the subsequent rumors spell doom for Emma’s business.

Thank goodness she still has the job of planning Sean and Madison’s wedding. Sean, one of the notorious McCluskey clan, is about to marry Madison, the beautiful daughter of the rich and powerful Whites. But when Tony Barnet is killed, the police swiftly arrest Sean McCluskey.

DESCRIPTION:

“Gorgeously written and fully immersive…With prose that positively vibrates and characters who defy expectation, Kelly Simmons brings us straight to Nantucket, into the bright, beating heart of this one-of-a-kind family, and never lets us go.”–New York Times bestseller Kate Moretti

After a tragic Fourth of July weekend, one upper-crust American family learns that some secrets never stay hidden, no matter how deeply you bury them…

Any of the Warners could have been behind the accident. Every one of them had a problem that threatened to tarnish more than their old-money silver.

Having spent the past three decades’ worth of summers on Nantucket, the Warners are as much a part of the island as the crust of salt on the ferry. But this year is different: Tripp is no longer the father he was, and it becomes clear that nothing–not the beams that hold the house together, and not the values the family clings to–can survive the ravages of time. When tradition turns to tragedy, the creaky old house swirls with suspicion. There are just so many reasons to want someone gone.

With no easy answers as to how, why, or who, the Warners must face another frightening question: do they really want to know the truth?

DESCRIPTION:

You don’t have to be a hard-ass to be a good manager. You don’t need threats or discipline to get cooperation. You don’t have to disown your friends to be their manager. You don’t have to be a bully to get results.

You can get better results by being the nice person you are. Your employees will work harder, enjoy their work more, stay at their jobs longer, appreciate your management style, and respect your leadership.
In this book you’ll watch as an extraordinarily effective and amazingly nice manager, Mike Mitchell, handles all the challenging management situations.

You’ll follow Mike as he…

  • creates a motivating environment (ch 7)
  • makes his daily rounds (ch 8)
  • conducts a team meeting (ch 9)
  • delegates responsibilities (ch 10)
  • coaches improvements (ch 11)
  • corrects inappropriate behaviors (ch 12)

Mike deals with even the most troublesome management situations so smoothly you’ll say, “Why don’t I do it like that?!” And he gets legendary results–not by being a hard-driving taskmaster, but by being nice.

Do as Mike does and you’ll be a legendary nice manager too.
