Two great books out today: Jenny Nelson’s debut novel Georgia’s Kitchen (if you like women’s fiction, romance and a taste of Italy) and bestselling author Lisa Unger’s Fragile (for you Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve fans who love family drama with some suspense. People Magazine called it a “nail-biter”).
Must-reads for summer and each author has a fantastic contest~ check it out:
Order Fragile between now and August 6th and you could win an iPad. Just leave a comment on Lisa Unger’s Facebook page telling her where you picked up her book and then a random drawing will take place August 10th.
Everybody knows everybody in The Hollows, a quaint, charming town outside of New York City. It’s a place where neighbors keep an eye on each other’s kids, where people say hello in the grocery store, and where high school cliques and antics are never quite forgotten. As a kid, Maggie found the microscope of small town life stifling. But as a wife and mother, she’s happily returned to The Hollows’ insular embrace. As a psychologist, her knowledge of family histories provides powerful insights into her patients’ lives. So when the girlfriend of her teenage son Rick disappears, Maggie’s intuitive gift proves useful to the case – and also dangerous.
Eerie parallels soon emerge between Charlene’s disappearance and the abduction of another local girl that shook the community when Maggie was a teenager. The investigation has her husband, Jones, the lead detective on the case, acting strangely. Rick, already a brooding teenager, becomes even more withdrawn. In a town where the past is always present, nobody is above suspicion, not even a son in the eyes of his father.
It’s a page-turner and the Associated Press says “Unger fans won’t be disappointed.” For more info: www.lisaunger.com.
