“Rival’s Break” by Carla Neggers (MIRA)

(NAPSI)—FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan are enjoying a day off on the tranquil coast of Maine when danger finds them. Colin’s brother, a marine patrol officer, hears of suspected food poisoning aboard a yacht not far from them, so Colin and Emma join the patrol.

When they discover one of the victims is an undercover British intelligence officer, they realize they are dealing with something greater and more calculated than they anticipated. The theft of a priceless painting by a friend of Emma and Colin’s, prominent Irish artist Aoife O’Byrne, adds to the severity of the case as well as the detective couple’s personal connection to it. Together with their Boston-based FBI team, they work to track down the culprit before any more destruction ensues. Buy at https://amzn.to/2kETwLt.

“Ditch the Act” by Leonard Kim and Ryan Foland (McGraw-Hill Education)

With all the picture-perfect resumes and wildly impressive, though exaggerated, personal stories flaunted in the professional world, the competition is daunting for most professionals trying to get ahead. Kim and Foland divulge the truth about gaining success: The most effective way to be impressive is to practice being human.

Admitting flaws and setbacks in personal stories actually makes one appear honest and self-confident. Imperfections are what make us human, and embracing them cultivates authenticity and leads to greater success. “Ditch the Act” reveals how careers, businesses, and relationships built on stronger connections of honesty and humility are more rewarding and more enduring than those achieved with polished personae.
