On a snowy February day in 2011, 62-year-old Cindy Sweet receives a Facebook message from a dead man - Warrant Officer Ryan Quinlan, who supposedly died in Vietnam 40 years earlier. He'd been Cindy's fiancé before an RPG took out his Dustoff chopper, killing all aboard. Cindy, a young combat nurse at the 24th Evacuation Hospital at Long Binh, had been devastated by her loss but, with no other choice, had served out her year in Vietnam - and even found love again. Incense & Peppermints is a novel about patriotism, loyalty, enduring love, unimaginable courage, and devastating loss. It's the story of one woman's year in a war zone during the most unpopular war in US history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Angie Hickman.

In the third hilarious, unforgettable installment in internationally best-selling author Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg’s League of Pensioners series, Martha and the League’s latest escapade has them headed for the French Riviera in what is sure to be the most daring caper of the summer. Martha and her friends are sitting comfortably in Sweden… a little too comfortably. Determined to do more for their fellow pensioners - and jazz things up for themselves - they’re up to their usual antics: bank robberies, money laundering, and figuring out how to disappear in a garbage-truck-cum-getaway-car. They have their sights sets on building a resort village for seniors, but that’s going to take money. Lots of money. While stalking their millionaire neighbor, Carl, on Facebook, Anna-Gretta scrolls through his photos - all of them featuring luxury yachts on the Riviera - and an idea comes to her on how to solve the League’s cash problem. When she shares the hare-brained scheme with the others, they’re all aboard. Their plan to cheat billionaires out of their luxury yachts in the south of France’s sun-bleached Saint-Tropez soon turns into the heist of their lives with the police hot on their heels - as well as a couple of ruthless ex-cons. Now this wily group of walker-equipped conspirators are hell-bent on accomplishing their dangerous mission - no matter the consequences… 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patience Tomlinson.
