    Sarah and Ginny have been best friends since school. They both had their share of adolescent problems but now things are working out for Sarah. She's met Tom. He's handsome, a journalist and totally devoted to her. Her TV reporting career is taking off. She and Tom have moved into a stunning inner-city apartment. But Ginny has not been so lucky. She wanted Tom, but she didn't get him. She wants the ease and grace with which Sarah lives her life. She wants what Sarah has. She wants it all.

    Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous – Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape.

    If you could sum up Into the Darkest Corner in three words, what would they be?

    Real, believable and gripping


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Catherine, I really took to her, her life was so real and believable. Her way of thinking can be related to. She was just a normal girl turned into a quiet almost reclusive OCD freak . But once you find out what happened to her, its amazing that she even got to this point.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were some really unexpected funny parts, mainly from Catherine.

    Hayden Duke has the naive ambition to make some money and prove to his family that he can take care of himself, so he accepts a short-term contract working for his old college friend, Shane Fallon. All seems like a dream come true…until Shane kills himself. Right in front of Hayden. Detective Santiago has seen it all before. Shane had narcotics in his system when he hanged himself, and the dope had to come from somewhere - like an old college buddy. Case closed. But only a week before Shane’s suicide, another employee from the same office walked straight into the ocean. Both men’s last words are the same....

    What did you love best about We All Fall Down?

    Its an easy story to follow, you'll guess the plot before it happens so its a little predictable but enjoyable non the less.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Santiago, reminds me of Columbo.

    Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love? These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.
