With two New York Times best sellers and continued star-status on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice has lots more to share with her fans. In this latest book, Teresa provides a detailed program for how she keeps her voluptuous, sexy figure after four kids (and as she approaches 40). The more than 60 recipes in Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit (Running Press, $18.95) emphasize "skinny": including lessons on playing up veggies and grilled meats, cooking low-calorie Italian favorites, and rules for the five things you MUST cut out (and what to replace them with). But Teresa isn't about deprivation. She loves food— especially pasta and Tiramisu! Teresa proves that you CAN have your skinny jeans and spaghetti too. She tells you exactly how to live La Bella Vita- the "skinny" way.
After hosting Robert Goolrick for a two week writer's residency in February 2011, we’re excited to bring the #1 New York Times bestselling author back to present his latest novel, Heading Out to Wonderful, which he completed right here in Cayman. It is the summer of 1948 when a handsome, charismatic stranger, Charlie Beale, recently back from the war in Europe, shows up in the sleepy village of Brownsburg, Virginia carrying two suitcases. One contains his few possessions, including a fine set of butcher knives; the other is full of money. A lot of money. When his attraction to Sylvan, the teenage bride of the town’s wealthiest citizen, turns from lust to an all-consuming passion, Charlie’s possessive nature threatens to destroy everything and everyone in its path. This much-anticipated follow-up to A Reliable Wife is an exciting, erotically charged, and altogether unforgettable story of love gone terribly wrong. Part of the Books & Books International Visiting Author Series, this free event is sponsored by Camana Bay, the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism and Sunshine Suites Resort.
Freeman (Agate Bolden, $16) takes place in the first few months following the Confederate surrender and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Upon learning of Lee's surrender, Sam--a runaway slave who once worked for the Union Army--decides to leave his safe haven in Philadelphia and set out on foot to return to the war-torn South. At bottom, Freeman is a love story--sweeping, generous, brutal, compassionate, patient--about the feelings people were determined to honor, despite the enormous constraints of the times. At the same time, this book addresses several themes that are still hotly debated today, some 145 years after the official end of the Civil War. Freeman by Leonard Pitts illuminates the times and places it describes from a fresh perspective, with stunning results. It has the potential to become a classic addition to the literature dealing with this period. Few other novels so powerfully capture the pathos and possibility of the era particularly as it reflects the ordeal of the black slaves grappling with the promise--and the terror--of their new status as free men and women.
