Books That Will Make You Think

I am really excited to share with you this new book, Her Pretty Face by Robyn Harding! Robyn is a friend of mine which makes this new release even more special! I HIGHLY recommend getting this novel as soon as you can, I know you will absolutely love it as I did.

Here’s the synopsis:

 

Frances Metcalfe is struggling to stay afloat.

A stay-at-home mom whose troubled son is her full-time job, she thought that the day he got accepted into the elite Forrester Academy would be the day she started living her life. Overweight, insecure, and lonely, she is desperate to fit into Forrester’s world. But after a disturbing incident at the school leads the other children and their families to ostracize the Metcalfes, she feels more alone than ever before.

Until she meets Kate Randolph.

Kate is everything Frances is not: beautiful, wealthy, powerful, and confident. And for some reason, she’s not interested in being friends with any of the other Forrester moms—only Frances. As the two bond over their disdain of the Forrester snobs and the fierce love they have for their sons, a startling secret threatens to tear them apart…because one of these women is not who she seems. Her real name is Amber Kunick. And she’s a murderer.

 

This is a highly suspenseful novel that will have you reading deep into the night as you learn more and more. Robyn is such a gifted storyteller, I look forward to reading her next book! If you haven’t already read The Party, get it immediately! I remember reading it within one day, I couldn’t leave the couch as I NEEDED to know how the story was going to play out!

Another good book is The Ever After by Sarah Pekkanen. I really enjoy this author’s writing and every book she writes is an awesome domestic drama. The reader can so easily put herself in the shoes of the main character.

Here’s what you need to know about this one:

Josie and Frank Moore are happy… at least Josie thinks they are. As parents of two young girls in the Chicago suburbs, their days can be both busy and monotonous, and sometimes Josie wonders how she became a harried fortysomething mother rather than the driven career woman she once was. But Frank is a phenomenal father, he’s handsome and charismatic, and he still looks at his wife like she’s the beautiful woman he married more than a decade ago. Josie isn’t just happy—she’s lucky.

Until one Saturday morning when Josie borrows her husband’s phone to make a quick call—and sees nine words that shatter her world.

Now Josie feels as if she is standing at the edge of a sharp precipice. As she looks back at pivotal moments in the relationship she believed would last forever, she is also plunging ahead, surprising everyone (especially herself) with how far she will go to uncover the extent of her husband’s devastating secret.

 

 

Remind Me Again What Happened by Joanna Luloff asks the question, what would you do if you woke up unsure of your memories? You don’t know where you are, how you got there. So many questions that you can’t answer. How would you even go about piecing your life together?

 

Claire wakes in a hospital room in the Florida Keys. She has no idea how she got there or why. The loss of so many memories is paralyzing. Some things she can piece together by looking at old photos saved by her husband, Charlie, and her best friend, Rachel, and by combing through boxes of letters and casual jottings. But she senses a mystery at the center of all these fragments of her past, a feeling that something is not complete. Is Charlie still her husband? Is Rachel still her friend?

Told from alternating points of view that pull the reader into the minds of the three characters, the story unfolds as the smudge that covers Claire’s memory is gradually, steadily wiped away, until finally she can understand the why and the how of her life. And then maybe she and Charlie and Rachel can move forward, but with their lives forever changed.

This well-written and interesting book will leave you thinking long after you finish it.
