WALKING INTO MURDER (The Professor Laura Morland Mystery Series Book 1)

Who would believe that an innocent walking trip in the English Cotswolds would include not just one murder but three, and even more hair-raising adventures? The intrepid American heroine of WALKING INTO MURDER, professor Laura Morland, would have scoffed at the idea. All she wanted was a few days of peace to recover from a humiliating (if not entirely unwelcome) divorce and a chance to test her new independence. That she certainly does; peace is another matter.WALKING INTO MURDER is a light-hearted mystery with a delightful setting, an intriguing plot and distinctive characters headed by Laura Morland, a wonderfully appealing new amateur detective. It is part traditional English mystery, part middle-aged female sleuth of independent spirit who solves mysteries that confound the experts, part primer on the the battle between the sexes since Laura is an expert on gender, part rousing adventure. Laura is hardly Miss Marple - she is younger, more active, attractive, even romantically inclined, but the settings and characters are very British indeed. It's a wonderful read: spine-tingling escapes and confrontations on deserted moors contrast with peaceful interludes in England's quaintest villages and most verdant countryside - and with some near-comic scenes of Laura's inept but ultimately successful efforts to track down the villains even as she eludes their clutches. Mask-making, amateur theatrics, underground tunnels and an escape from a boarded-up cottage are all part of the action. The adventure begins when Laura is invited to teach a seminar on gender issues in London. First she decides to embark on a solo walking trip on the Cotswold Way. The walk soon takes stormy turns. A man plummets out of the thick mist, hauls her into an embrace and begs her to masquerade as his wife. Escorted at gunpoint by an aristocratic Englishman to an ancient manor house, she is confronted by a roomful of eccentrics, any of whom could be the killer of the body she finds in a bedroom - a body that perversely keeps changing its identity. In fact, everyone in in this bizarre household seems to have multiple identities and multiple motivations, making it exceedingly difficult to determine who is telling the truth and even harder to ascertain who is on Laura's side.Curiosity is Laura's dominant trait and she delves into the mystery with possibly unwise abandon. She is determined to unmask the murderer - and to get the best of her alternately charming and irritating would-be husband, to whom she is undeniably attracted. She soon discovers that her fund of scholarly knowledge about male/female relationships is of little help in dealing with a man who refuses to answer her questions, appears to be having a steamy affair with the titled Lady of the house, and who increasingly seems the most likely candidate for murderer. Complicating matters further is his fraught relationship with Laura's able assistant in crime-detection, a fiery, free-spirited runaway who lives in the woods.As Laura probes deeper, the efforts of the villains to silence her become more frantic and her strategies to evade them more ingenious. With total disregard for the escalating danger, she vows to outwit them all. And she does. In a final dramatic - and totally unexpected - scene, she zeroes in on the killer, or it might be more accurate to say the murderer zeroes in on her.Joan Dahr Lambert is the author of CIRCLES OF STONE, a prehistoric novel told through the eyes of three women who became leaders of their tribes, and published by Simon & Schuster in 1997 & 1999. Lambert has written two other prehistoric novels, a novel about wolves for children and a novella, as well as the first two books in the Laura Morland series. The second, BABES IN THE BATHS, will be out soon. Like may published authors, she has decided to try self-publishing. All of her books will soon appear on Kindle and on other on-line venues.

Seductions of Place: Geographical Perspectives on Globalization and Touristed Landscapes (Critical Geographies)

The seductiveness of touristed landscapes is simultaneously local and global, as travelled places are formed and reworked by the activities of diverse, mobile people, in their desires to experience situated, sensuous qualities of difference. Cartier and Lew’s interesting and informative book explores contemporary issues in travel and tourism and human geography, and the complex cultural, political, and economic activities at stake in touristed landscapes as a result of globalization.

Throughout, examples are given from urban and environmental touristed landscapes, from major world cities to tropical islands, and chapter contributions include:an analysis of the representational character of landscape and the built environmenthistoric constructions of place seductionthe importance of class, racial, and gender dimensions of placehow mobility and the seduction of place orient identity formationthe environmental impacts of tourism economies. Broad in scope, this book is ideal for social scientists and humanists who are interested in contemporary debates about place studies, mobility, and the located realities of globalization.

Bowing to Elephants: Tales of a Travel Junkie

In Bowing to Elephants, a woman seeking love and authenticity comes to understand herself as a citizen of the world through decades of wandering the globe. During her travels she sees herself more clearly as she gazes into the feathery eyes of a 14,000-pound African elephant and looks for answers to old questions in Vietnam and the tragically ravaged landscape of Cambodia.Bowing to Elephants is a travel memoir with a twist―the story of an unloved rich girl from San Francisco who becomes a travel junkie, searching for herself in the world to avoid the tragic fate of her narcissistic, alcoholic mother. Haunted by images of childhood loneliness and the need to learn about her world, Dimond journeys to far-flung places―into the perfumed chaos of India, the nostalgic, damp streets of Paris, the gray, watery world of Venice in the winter, the reverent and silent mountains of Bhutan, and the gold temples of Burma. In the end, she accepts the death of the mother she never really had―and finds peace and her authentic self in the refuge of Buddhist practice.

A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf (Illustrated Edition)

"JOHN MUIR, Earth-planet, Universe."—These words are written on the inside cover of the notebook from which the contents of this volume have been taken. They reflect the mood in which the late author and explorer undertook his thousand-mile walk to the Gulf of Mexico. No less does this refreshingly cosmopolitan address, which might have startled any finder of the book, reveal the temper and the comprehensiveness of Mr. Muir's mind. He never was and never could be a parochial student of nature. In September 1867, Muir undertook a walk of about 1,000 miles (1,600 km) from Kentucky to Florida, which he recounted in his book A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf. He had no specific route chosen, except to go by the "wildest, leafiest, and least trodden way I could find."

“Dear Stranger. Whether you have a suitcase or simply a nice bag, I request you empty it next to mine. On the sand, on the floor, or next to a burning fire. When I hear your voice, I want to rush to place our lives in a common bag, taking all of our boxes for future useful expeditions. Our treasures. Personal and stray. Let us both give up the locked cupboard which hold useless boxes which caused us pain. Let us give each permission to walk towards the light, side-by-side towards a common future and return, head-filled, with moments lived.” ***HARBOUR COVE ***Successful New York investment banker Catherine Bennett tragically and unexpectedly inherits a property in France; a gift from her fiancée Phillipe Maréchal, stated in his will unbeknownst. Heart-broken, 45, and ready for a change, Catherine trades her chai tea latte and enviable life in Manhattan for a small French coastal village and an empty 18th century maison de maître. Eleven bedrooms, six fireplaces, crumbling stone terrace and a moss-filled pool; the charming property awash in golden stone with faded green shutters, beckon. Catherine begins the task of painstakingly restoring Phillipe’s gift and in turn her heart; into a quiet, reflective haven filled with sea air and the healing powers of a new beginning.

free Feeling Real Emotions Everyday (Camino de la Luna)

From the Amazon Best Selling author of "Japan Is Very Wonderful," the "Camino de la Luna" series and the Pearl Escapes mini-guides.WARNING – this book contains strong language. Because when you wake up to yourself after forty years “dear me” just isn’t going to cut it. I wrote this to express everything I felt on waking up and as a manual for myself on how it feels to be free (just in case I ever forget).My practice, whatever it is on any given day, is to help people feel alive, to wake them up. The tragic part is that they often wake up for a moment; for one second, for a song, for an hour, for a day or a week, they wake up to themselves and then they disappear again.I don’t want to live like that any more. So this book is for me and it is for you, because I want you to wake up too and stay awake. Maybe you are my beloved, maybe you are my sister, my friend, a stranger who I will never meet, but I want you to wake up. This world is too miraculous for you to miss it."free Feeling Real Emotions Everyday" was written in April 2016 after a trip to the US that included four nights in Las Vegas, a wander through the canyons of Utah and Arizona, a spiritual retreat in Sedona, rocking on the porch of a cowboy ranch house and finally a Native American healing that changed everything. Shortly afterwards I sold my house and left England on my "Camino de la Luna" which became a seven book series charting my journey around the world, understanding seven spiritual principles; "Take What You Need", "Unconditional Love", "Forgiveness", "Compassion and Self Compassion", "Courage", "Truth" and "Reconciliation" or, as they call it in South Africa, Ubuntu.("Japan Is Very Wonderful", a prequel to this series is the story of my trip to Japan in December 2015, which is when I started waking up to the nature all around me and to my own nature, which I had buried deep inside.)The colour eBook of this title - also available as a full colour paperback and black and white eBook and paperback (without pictures)."To me, you are a hero... You have learned to take something negative in your life and make it a positive... a gift to others. It doesn't get any better than that. Don't doubt that you are capable of helping others... in terms of other of life's difficulties... What an adventure!"
