The Abandoned Property Investor´s Kit:Find the Owner, Buy Low (with No Competition), Sell for Big Profits Reggie Brooks
A psychic interior designer reluctantly agrees to renovate a sexy investor´s abandoned hotel on Loch Sheldrake, a lake rumored to have once been the mob´s body dumping ground. Interior designer Kate Bardach loves her single girl´s lifestyle, living in Manhattan and spending weekends at her lake house. She´s passionate about her career, too - reinventing old buildings. But there are some projects she can´t take on because of the spirits trapped inside. Kate is psychic - she sees dead people. Marco Lareci is one of Wall Street´s most successful investment brokers who´s achieved all of his life´s goals - except for finding his soulmate. His latest project, an abandoned resort on Loch Sheldrake, needs a savvy designer to transform the crumbling complex into a boutique hotel. When Marco meets Kate, he can´t believe his luck. She´s the perfect match for his business and his heart. Marco´s body excites Kate even more than does his renovation project. But he wants more than a casual relationship, and she´s not willing to give up her freedom. Plus, the haunting at Marco´s resort, a bona fide poltergeist, affects her on an intensely personal level. Kate´s aunt disappeared from the place 50 years ago. Will the spirit doom Kate and Marco´s love, or drive them closer together? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joshua Saulter.

A surreal, lyrical work of narrative nonfiction that portrays how the largest domestic oil discovery in half a century transformed a forgotten corner of the American West into a crucible of breakneck capitalism. As North Dakota became the nation´s second-largest oil producer, Maya Rao set out in steel-toe boots to join a wave of drifters, dreamers, entrepreneurs, and criminals. With an eye for the dark, absurd, and humorous, Rao fearlessly immersed herself in their world to chronicle this modern-day gold rush, from its heady beginnings to OPEC´s price war against the US oil industry. She rode shotgun with a surfer-turned-truck driver braving toxic fumes and dangerous roads, dined with businessmen disgraced during the financial crisis, and reported on everyone in between - including an ex-con YouTube celebrity, a trophy wife mired in scandal, and a hard-drinking British Ponzi schemer - in a social scene so rife with intrigue that one investor called the oilfield Peyton Place on steroids. As the boom receded, a culture of greed and recklessness left troubling consequences for investors and longtime residents. Empty trailers and idle oil equipment littered the fields like abandoned farmsteads, leaving the pioneers who built this unlikely civilization to reckon with their legacy. Part Barbara Ehrenreich, part Upton Sinclair, Great American Outpost is a sobering exploration of 21st-century America that sounds like a frontier novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ellen Archer.

A mayor´s inspirational story of a Midwest city that has become nothing less than a blueprint for the future of American renewal. Once described by the Washington Post as ´´the most interesting mayor you´ve never heard of,´´ Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has now emerged as one of America´s most visionary politicians. With soaring prose that celebrates a resurgent American Midwest, Shortest Way Home narrates the heroic transformation of a ´´dying city´´ (Newsweek) into nothing less than a shining model of urban reinvention. Elected at 29 as the nation´s youngest mayor, Pete Buttigieg immediately recognised that ´´great cities, and even great nations, are built through attention to the everyday´´. As Shortest Way Home recalls, the challenges were daunting - whether confronting gun violence, renaming a street in honour of Martin Luther King Jr., or attracting tech companies to a city that had appealed more to junk bond scavengers than serious investors. None of this is underscored more than Buttigieg´s audacious campaign to reclaim 1,000 houses, many of them abandoned, in 1,000 days and then, even as a sitting mayor, deploying to serve in Afghanistan as a Navy officer. Yet the most personal challenge still awaited Buttigieg, who came out in a South Bend Tribune editorial, just before being reelected with 78 percent of the vote, and then finding Chasten Glezman, a middle-school teacher, who would become his partner for life. While Washington reels with scandal, Shortest Way Home, with its graceful, often humorous language, challenges our perception of the typical American politician. In chronicling two once-unthinkable stories that of an Afghanistan veteran who came out and found love and acceptance, all while in office, and that of a revitalised Rust Belt city no longer regarded as ´´flyover country´´, Buttigieg provides a new vision for America´s shortest way home. 1.
