    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    Story

    Love, love, love Harlan Coben. He has always been one author you could depend on for an excellent story line, fantastic characters and plenty of twists and turns in the plot. "Stay Close" flopped. The premise of this mystery is of an ex-stripper turned soccer mom. A crime took place and Megan goes back to her roots and finds herself involved than she anticipated.

    Problem on my part is I didn't really care about the characters. Megan was boring. She was a boring mom, boring wife and a boring stripper. Her husband is boring. The detective is unlikable. The two serial killers are unbelievably creepy with a love for Jesus thrown in for good measure. What the heck? If Mr. Coben's name wasn't written on the jacket I would swear I was reading one of those "I-publish-8-books-a-year-and-none-of-them-are-worth-reading" writers. I managed to finish as I was hoping it would get better. Unfortunately it didn't. Very disappointed, Mr. Coben. Usually you don't resort to the sleezy scripts so prevalent with others in your field.

  • Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love

    In the best-selling tradition of Rescuing Sprite comes the story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted. Heartwarming and redemptive, Oogy is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him "Oogy" (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own.

    Story

    Sweet story of a battered dog and a loving family who took him in. Used as a bait dog due to his loveable nature, Oogy was left to die. A determined vet and a caring family has made this special dog's life wonderful. The story also gives ia small glimpse into the world of dogfighting. Dogs are housed at abandoned properties and rotated so they cannot be linked to any owner. People who fight dogs will look for bait dogs on Craig's list or other forms of advertising, targeting the "free to good home" listings. ( I found this enlightening.)

    Oogy, however is not a sad story but one of overcoming obstacles and rescue. I would thoroughly recommend this tale (no pun) if you need encouragement.
