Stay away from sushi! Cut out caffeine! Step back from the microwave! Once a woman discovers she’s pregnant, the world suddenly becomes a dangerous place where even her favorite foods become a “risk factor.”

In the new book Debunking the Bump, mathematician Daphne Adler has set out to help soon-to-be-mothers who are overwhelmed with the ever-growing list of don’ts during pregnancy. Using a combination of statistics and research, Adler reveals which factors are true threats to a healthy pregnancy and which are simply old wives’ tales.

Chapters cover topics like:
Environmental Toxins (mercury, perfume, and cleaning products)
Guilty Pleasures (caffeine, stress, sex)
Good Influences (vitamins, iron, and calcium)

Finding Peace by Melanie D. Snitker

Police Officer Tuck Chandler is good at his job. He’s also good at holding women at arm’s length. Jilted by his fiancĂ©e for his dedication to his job, he’s not about to open himself up to hurt like that again.

When Tuck is assigned to a puzzling burglary involving Laurie’s fledgling photography business, he goes into it with his usual perseverance. He wants to help her – if she’ll let him. As the case unfolds and the mystery deepens, another question arises.

Will the past get in the way of their future?
