Seven days earlier, Brooklyn had returned to Eden to care for her beloved father, who lay helpless in a hospital bed. Her estranged sister, Ginny, said he fell. But as Brooklyn soon realizes, Ginny is prone to lying.

Former Eden resident Darius Woods was in the hospital too. The famous actor had written a screenplay that would lay bare all the secrets of the town, but within hours of his return, someone shot him.

As the Woods investigation proceeds, and Brooklyn starts to question everything she believes about her family, her neighbors, and her home, secrets and lies begin to unravel. But nothing can prepare her for where those lies will finally lead.

And sharing the truth of what happened the night her father died might just make things worse.

Fiction Friday #5

FICTION FRIDAY

I’ve been reading a lot lately. Which is GREAT. Because after I got my job a 2 months out of college, I stopped reading almost altogether. Not like “I’ll never read again!” I just wasn’t reading.

These are good problems to have though.

The only problem with reading so much, is the lack of packing I have done. And we’re officially THREE WEEKS OUTĀ from moving day! Crap! I’m not gonna quit reading though. I just need to figure out how to manage my time better, haha.

Okay, without further ado, here’s what I’ve been reading lately.

A new blog segment! Yay!

Fiction Friday is different for everyone. But forĀ The Caffeinated Writer, Fiction Friday will be a round-up of the books I read this week, plus a short summary of my feelings about that book.

Most of these books are classics or very popular contemporary YA novels, so I probably won’t write formal reviews for most of them.

SO, without further ado: Continue reading
