With wit and wisdom, The French Twist: Twelve Secrets of Decadent Dining and Natural Weight Management explores the French attitudes of reverence and respect for food and dining. Based on a desire to take the American obsession with weight and fitness in a new direction, it exposes the shortcomings of quick-fix fad diets, encourages readers to examine their unique connections to food, and asks them to abandon their fears about eating and to reject such common myths as the idea that to lose weight we need to eat less and exercise more. Among the secrets the book reveals are the importance of eating authentic and high-quality food, and the role of pleasure and balance in proper nutrition and successful weight management. Throughout, the French approach is validated by up-to-date science on metabolism as it relates to the psychology of eating.

American detective Dan Elliot and his wife, Caroline, have traveled to Nice, France, to witness the wedding of their special friend, Kate Kennelly, and the wealthy Jack Boulanger. Caroline's daughter, Ruth Mannering, is serving as the maid of honor for this elegant wedding. But when Ruth and Kate don't arrive at the church for the start of the service, concern sets in. Hours later, Ruth regains consciousness on a seedy side street in Nice, and she's able to alert her parents that Kate has been kidnapped. From the moment the two women disappear, someone taunts and terrorizes the groom and his family. The culprit is called the "hyene" because of the childish song and nursery rhyme parodies that have been sent to Jack. Dan and Caroline share their unique crime-solving expertise with France's premier detective, Emile LaGrange. When kidnapping escalates to murder, Caroline does not let her disability hold her back as she, Dan, and LaGrange seek to reveal the identity of the kidnapper and murderer. Tension escalates as other deadly incidents unfold, and the detective trio must determine if this case revolves around ransom, jealousy, or revenge.

Pastries, Paris and romance–Lexi’s adventure has just begun! Lexi Stuart is risking it all. Saying au revoir to the security of home, her job, and could-be boyfriend Dan, Lexi embarks on a culinary adventure in France to fulfill her life dream of becoming a pastry chef. As she settles into her new home in the village of Presque le Chateau to study and work in a local bakery, her twenty-something optimism meets resistance in the seemingly crusty nature of the people and culture around her. Determined to gain her footing, she finds a church, meets a new friend, and makes the acquaintance of a child named Celine–as well as Celine’s attractive, widowed father, Philippe. Even Patricia, the gruff pastry cook, shows a softer side as she mentors Lexi in the art of baking. As Lexi lives her dream, the only thing she has to do is choose from the array in life’s patisserie display window: her familiar home, friends, and family in Seattle or her new life in France. Lexi discovers that as she leans more on God the choices become a little clearer– and making them, well, c’est la vie! From the Trade Paperback edition.

Lexi Stuart is at a critical crossroads. She’s done with college but still living at home, ready to launch a career but unable to find a job, and solidly stalled between boyfriends. When a lighthearted conversation in French with the manager of her favorite bakery turns into a job offer, Lexi accepts. But the actual glamour is minimal: the pay is less than generous, her co-workers are skeptical, her bank account remains vertically-challenged, and her parents are perpetually disappointed. Her only comfort comes from the flirtatious baker she has her eye–but even may not be who he seems to be! So when a handsome young executive dashes into the bakery to pick up his high profile company’s special order for an important meeting–an order Lexi has flubbed– she loses her compulsion to please. “What am I going to do?” he shouts. “Let them eat cake!” she fires back with equal passion and a nod to Marie Antoinette. And then, something inside Lexi clicks. Laissez la révolution commencer! Let the revolution begin! Instead of trying to fulfill everyone else’s expectations for her life, Lexi embarks on an adventure in trusting God with her future–très bon!
