A tale of perfumes, exploring life, love, loss and forgiveness - Maggie Alderson's new best seller. Are you still married if you haven't seen your husband for months? Polly's life is great. Her children are away at uni, her glamorous mother - still modelling at 85 - is happily settled in a retirement village, and her perfume blog is taking off. Then her husband announces he needs some space and promptly vanishes. As Polly grapples with her bewildering situation, she clings to a few new friends to keep her going - Shirlee, the loudmouthed yoga student; Guy, the mysterious, infuriating and hugely talented perfumer; and Edward, an old flame from university. And while she distracts herself with the heady world of luxury perfume, Polly knows she can't keep reality at bay forever. Eventually she is forced to confront some difficult truths: about her husband, herself, and who she really wants to be. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Zara Ramm.

This audiobook is a re-publication of a blog I started in the depths of the Great Recession in March 2011. During that time, as I agonized over investing, saving, and potential job loss, I developed an investment philosophy I dubbed the “Financial Fortress” and wrote a series of posts about it along with other posts about specific asset classes, investment strategies and related topics. My two biggest successes have been in real estate and precious metals. During the Great Recession, I made some aggressive moves, using retirement savings, to purchase distressed condominiums in Orange County, California. In addition to enjoying positive cash flow while I owned the properties, I have just completed one sale and have a second one in escrow, doubling my money in five years. I also made an aggressive move into silver (US Silver Eagle coins) to watch them triple in value, at which time I sold individual rolls on EBay and kept the rest for future appreciation. The essence of the Financial Fortress is that as savers and investors, we need to first have a strong defense before we can have a strong offense. As volatility in world markets seems to worsen each year and booms/busts become more intense, preservation of capital is paramount but so is finding opportunities to leverage what we have in order to grow our wealth. 1.

Practice nurse Kate Palmer is ready for some peace and quiet in her little Cornish village, but there's soon to be a murder on her doorstep… Kate's retirement in Cornwall hasn't quite gone as planned - Lavender Cottage is in need of substantial repairs and her sister Angie's fondness for gin does rather stretch the purse-strings. So when Kate is asked to do some nursing at the luxury retirement flats in Seaview Grange, she jumps at the chance. The old Victorian house has stunning views of the sea and the retirees are a peaceful bunch. That is, until Edina Martinelli, a glamorous ex-opera singer, is found poisoned in her home. Edina's death is ruled an overdose by Digoxin, the same medication she had been on for years. But Kate is sure the woman she met was not suicidal, and with the reputation of her practice on the line, she decides to do some digging. Luckily she's got the newly retired Detective Inspector Woody Forrest to help her… It's not long before Kate discovers evidence of foul play, and there's no shortage of suspects. Was it the besotted vicar? The ill-tempered stepson? Or perhaps Edina's neighbour finally had enough of her constant warbling. It seems everyone had a motive, but who amongst them had the stomach for murder? And will they kill again?
