Fiction Tuesday - The Good Neighbor

That’s what Sarah thinks as she settles into life with her new husband, Dr. Johnny McDonald. But all too soon she discovers an undercurrent of deception. And one October evening when Johnny is away, sudden tragedy destroys Sarah’s happiness.

Dazed and stricken with grief, she and Johnny begin to rebuild their shattered lives.

With each stunning revelation, Sarah must ask herself, Can we ever really know the ones we love?

Its number 1! in Kindle reads!
The Good Neighbor

This is a very tightly wound book with plenty of room for suspicion and doubt. The author leaves a nice trail of breadcrumbs to follow, little morsels of information that are slipped in to manipulate you one way or another, and then the reveals still take you by surprise. It's a quick read with a pace that rarely lets up, and contains quite a bit of lovely language amidst the drama. You're never really sure who the real culprit is until the final pages, revealed by one very clever line. Everything here works toward fostering doubt and suspicion in the reader, toward any and all characters, and this is great in that it keeps you guessing and eager to discover the truth. A very pleasurable reading experience.-S.M

Just what you need to get ready for September!

We Are Your Friends

Cole is an aspiring DJ who spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James, who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James' much younger girlfriend, Sophie. With Cole's forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unraveling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he is destined for.

Another movie staring Zac Efron where he needs to grow up. Oh, those twenty somethings, party all the time..you know..that kind of thing. But this is the rise of a DJ and his philosophy. If you like Zac and the life of DJing, it just might be the movie for you. Yet a part of you might be thinking hasn't Zac been this character before?

The music just might be the best part of the whole movie.
