Everyone has had the thought, "What is my life really about?" Though we may fool ourselves into thinking that our lives are fine and the issues we experience are no big deal, it can take just one glaring mistake to make it painfully clear that we are lying to ourselves. We all want that happy, fulfilling, rewarding life everyone talks about but often we have no clue how to get it! Dawn Wells has been there. At the age of 38, Dawn thought her dream of being a successful person and loving wife was over, and worse, she was convinced it was something beyond her grasp. After carrying around the emotional baggage from a terribly disappointing childhood for years, she'd given up hope for the happily ever after. Night after night, party after party, she was left feeling hollow and alone. Finally, one humbling night out, everything changed. A run-in with an adversary caught her completely off-guard and from that low point, she found the faith to understand and believe she would never be alone again. Dawn knows firsthand how the pain of childhood dysfunctional relationships is carried into adulthood, negatively affecting one's self-esteem and sense of self worth for years. Her story is one of healing the deepest wounds that keep us in emotional bondage and convince us that the 'good life' has passed us by. Throughout life's twists and turns, joys and defeats, Dawn discovered that faith and hope are her constant companions and that the tools she used to overcome her deepest fears can help others. Wrong Place at the Right Time is one woman's journey from a painful existence of fear, loneliness, and rejection to a place of peace, love and redemption. It's a story for all who have struggled with the ghosts from their past and want to move forward and create their own version of happily ever after in a real and sustainable way.

The pioneer who gate-crashed his way to the top Subhash Chandra, the promoter of Essel/ Zee Group, is an unlikely mogul. Hailing from a small town in Haryana, where his family ran grain mills, Chandra has been a perennial outsider, repeatedly aiming high and breaking into businesses where he was considered an interloper. Starting work as a teen to pay off family debts, Chandra had to rely on bluff, gumption and sheer hard toil to turn things around. A little bit of luck and political patronage saw him make a fortune in rice exports to the erstwhile USSR. Always a risk-taker, Chandra then had the vision of getting into broadcasting early, even as established media players failed to see its potential. His Zee TV, India's first private Indian TV channel, changed the rules of the game and tickled the fancy of a public starved of entertainment. Several gutsy initiatives followed, though not all of them were successful. Chandra's attempts to launch satellite telephony and a cricket league came a cropper. But the man continues to reinvent himself; he is now also focusing on infrastructure and smart cities. This is an unusually candid memoir of a truly desi self-made businessman who came to Delhi at age twenty with seventeen rupees in his pocket. Today, he has a net worth of $6.3 billion and annual group revenues of about $3 billion.

Sally Montgomery anticipated a romantic weekend getaway. What she got instead was a nightmare of unrelenting terror. The murder of her companion and the torching of their cabin sends Sally into hiding—from the police, who believe she's a suspect . . . and from the killer, who wants her dead. Desperate and alone in the woods, Sally has nowhere to run and nowhere to turn—except to her ex-husband, former NYPD detective-turned-private investigator Pete Montgomery, and their daughter Devon, who inherited her father's investigative instincts. Devon's search for the truth takes her dangerously close to the powerful Pierson clan and its enigmatic heir apparent, Blake Pierson. But with Olympic show-jumping gold at stake and his family's empire threatened, whose side is Blake on? Time is rapidly running out for Devon. Racing the clock, she must prove her mother's innocence and outmaneuver the killer before her tactics put her in the wrong place, and one more step will mean certain death.
