Date Night In
by Ashley Rodriguez

Rekindle the romance at home with a weekly date night, one on one, over an absolutely delicious meal for two.
Sweethearts, spouses, and parents Ashley and Gabe Rodriguez found themselves deep into marriage and child-rearing when they realized they were missing the connection of their early relationship, and needed to prioritize each other. They instituted a weekly date night at home to sauté, roast, mix, dice, and spend time reconnecting over delicious meals like:

  • Crostini with Ricotta, Prosciutto, and Peas
  • Tomato and Fennel Gazpacho with Dungeness Crab
  • Fennel-Crusted Lamb Chops
  • Dulce de Leche and Nectarine Creamsicles

Simply carving out time to talk, cook, and eat together can be the relationship-booster you need to keep the spark alive. Just don’t forget the cocktail (try a Rhubarb Sour or a Grapefruit 75). Make date night an integral part of your week and woo your partner all over again with food, drink, and sparkling conversation.

Packed with tantalizing and delicious recipes, Date Night In is a must-have cookbook for any couple who wants to spice things up with special seasonal meals at home around a table for two.

Date Night
by Carmen Green

BJ, Quita and Ebony are more than just girlfriends, they’re on-the-money partners in their own investment club. And now that they’re all nearing or at the age of thirty, they’re looking to invest some time in a good man. Trouble is, Hotlanta has cooled off for them in the eligible bachelors department. Their solution? Two words: Date Night. They make a pact to go on at least one date each week and, to keep each other honest, they’ll hold their own date night every Sunday so they can tell all about their latest escapades. Of course, each of them has her own challenges–and hang-ups. BJ is a former WNBA star who’s dealing with seeing the grandmother who raised her show signs of age. When it comes to dating, she may have to decide between a smooth-talking musician and an undercover brother who’s not what he seems. Quita is the dazzling beauty who wants one thing: a baby. If she happens to find real love along the way, so be it. Ebony’s been so beaten down by her mother’s criticisms that her self-confidence is shot, but date night has given her a new lease on life. She’s ready to shed her ugly-duckling attitude and find a good man–who may be closer than she thinks. Now, as each woman finds the strength to take her destiny in hand, the only question is, who’ll find love first?

Date Night
by Samantha Hayes

Returning early from a disastrous date night with my husband, I know something is wrong the moment the wheels crunch the gravel drive of our home. Inside, the TV is on and a half-eaten meal waits on the table. My heart stops when I find our little girl is alone in the house and our babysitter, Sasha, is missing…

Days later, when I’m arrested for Sasha’s murder and torn away from my perfect little family, I’ll wish I had told someone about the threatening note I received that morning.

I’ll hate myself for not finding out who the gift hidden inside my husband’s wardrobe was for.

I’ll scream from the rooftops that I’m innocent – but no one will listen.

I will realise I was completely wrong about everything that happened that night…

But will you believe me?

Twisted and absolutely unputdownable, Date Night exposes what goes on behind the closed doors of a happy home and the dangerous truths we ignore to protect the ones we love. Perfect reading for anyone totally gripped by The Wife Between Us, Friend Request or Gone Girl.
