They don’t play for the same team. Or do they? Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died. Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever. Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend…and a big one to learn about himself. Warning: contains sexual situations, skinny-dipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.

The third book in Glines' #1 "New York Times"-bestselling Field Party series. Two years ago, Riley Young fled Lawton, Alabama, after accusing the oldest Lawton son, Rhett, of rape. Everyone had called her a liar. Now she's back, raising the little girl that no one believed was Rhett's.
Lark Wainright used to be fearless. She led her life as a series of adventures, each one more exhilarating than the last. But her last overseas adventure was one too many. She’s safe now, but her family is still consumed with worry and her nights are filled with terror. When her best friend offers her a stay at the orchard in exchange for help at the farmers’ markets, Lark jumps into her little car and heads to Vermont. But her night terrors don’t stop. Desperate to keep her fragile state a secret, she relies on the most soft-spoken resident of the Shipley Farm to soothe her when her dreams prove too much. Zachariah is a survivor, too. It’s been four years since he was tossed aside by the polygamist cult where he grew up. He’s found a peaceful existence on the Shipley’s farm. He’s good with animals, and he’s good with his hands. But getting thrown away by your own people at nineteen leaves a mark on a guy. He doesn’t always know what to make of a world where movie quotes are the primary means of communication. Before hitchhiking to Vermont, he’d never watched TV or spoken on the phone. Actually, there are a lot of things he’s never done. Zach and Lark slowly grow to trust one another. One night they become even closer than they’d planned. But Lark may still be too broken to trust anyone. When she pushes Zach away, he will have to prove to himself that he's good for more than farm labor. Praise for the True North series: “Utterly fantastic.

Inge Hinke unternahm bereits mehrfach spirituelle Reisen ins Jenseits. Ihre Einblicke möchte sie in diesem Buch weitergeben, denn das Wissen um jenseitige Belange könnte es manchen Lesern erleichtern, Unsicherheit und Angst zu überwinden. Die Autorin beschreibt, wie es ihr möglich wurde, Menschen im Jenseits zu besuchen, und wie sie in jenen fremd-vertrauten Gefilden Kontakt zu verstorbenen Persönlichkeiten aufnahm, beispielweise zu Konrad Adenauer, Ötzi, Jules Verne oder Sokrates.
