Why would spry senior Bob Weiderley suddenly faint and fall into a coma after winning a game of Bingo? After all, he was the most physically fit of all the men at the Happy Haven Assisted Living Facility (although there weren´t many men at HH because women outnumbered them four to one). It was just very suspicious. That´s why Essie Cobb and her friends and fellow residents - Opal, Marjorie, and Fay - decided to investigate. Was it possible that someone was out to get the friendly old gentleman? Maybe it was Violet, Happy Haven´s director, trying to cover up her shady past. Or Sue, the activities director, whose behavior was unusual to say the least. Maybe it was one of the three women who sat at Bob´s regular table in the dining room. Or the mysterious man who had recently sent Bob a startling letter. Essie Cobb is determined to find out-and she´s not going to let her age (90), or her various age-related infirmities hold her back. Welcome to Happy Haven. If you thought most elderly residents of assisted living facilities spent their days watching television and sitting in the sun, you haven´t met Essie Cobb, senior sleuth, and her three mystery-solving buddies. These four elderly ladies have insatiable curiosity, unending concern for their fellow man (especially their fellow ´man´), and energy and determination that some might find unusual for women in their 80´s and 90´s. They may not be able to get around as fast as youngsters in their 60´s, or navigate that Interstate-Internet (or whatever that computer thing is), but they can solve a mystery. And they´re starting with this one. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jean Habrukowich. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/002628/bk_acx0_002628_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Summer´s steamy haze coats North Carolina´s Blue Ridge Mountains, but feisty Agnes Marie Hopper discovers the heat isn´t the only thing causing her blood to boil. After a kitchen fire destroys her home, Agnes moves in with her daughter, Betty Jo. Three months later they come to an understanding: neither can tolerate living with the other. So on a sultry August morning, Betty Jo drives Agnes and her few belongings to Sweetbriar Manor, a local retirement home and former house of ill repute. With no intention of staying, Agnes devises a scheme to sneak out of the Manor and find another place to live. Before she can make her exit, she runs into her best friend from high school, along with some other quirky characters. With a nose for trouble, Agnes learns some of the residents are being robbed, over-medicated, and denied basic cable and Internet access. Armed with nothing more than 71 years of common sense and a knack for pushing people´s buttons, Agnes sets out to expose the unscrupulous administrator, protect her new friends, and restore Sweetbriar Manor´s reputation as a rewarding and enriching lifestyle. But the real moment of truth comes when Agnes is forced to choose between her feisty self-reliance and the self-sacrifice that comes from caring for others. 1. Language: English.

Technology is more and more present in our lives, which is a clear advance but also a danger, especially among the youngest people since they can fall into what is called cyber addiction. This has become a reality today. This health problem did not exist a decade ago and is taking on new victims and more and more young people every day. Although the long-term consequences are still unknown, the fact that some studies indicate that 30 percent of young people who use the Internet on a daily basis are at risk of suffering from behavioral addiction means that one in three is at risk. While some countries are beginning to take steps to prevent it, others they have not yet realized the gravity of the situation, hence the need to disseminate the results of recent research in this regard to give visibility to a social problem that requires both preventive and treatment measures. 1.
