Whew! This book was intense, maddening, fast paced and totally absorbing. It’s told during the timespan of one day where the two main characters…Tom and Helen…make the worst choices I have ever seen a fictional couple make…but again…it was sooooo good! And the cover really is their neighborhood!

Reading right now…

Just a few of this week’s new books…from Edelweiss and NetGalley and Vine…
