Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office.

Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: she's gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and sexy beyond his wildest dreams. Joe needs to have her, and he'll stop at nothing to do so. As he begins to insinuate himself into her life - her friendships, her email, her phone - she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom-made for her. So when her boyfriend, Benji, mysteriously disappears, Beck and Joe fall into a tumultuous affair. But there's more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade.

Got to see into the head of a true crazy stocker, obsessed crazy guy who at some level we all wish our man loved us like this- BUT morals take over and you want him to get caught!!!! Quick! Not a feel good novel in the end- more of an eerie feeling of how easily a killer can get away with killing

I began to read this because I am a fan of the Bachelor but after I read this I realized this show gave AndIe Dorfman a chance and after hearing her constant overuse of "F-u-c-k" (which she used constantly). I decided that her harsh personality was NOT my style. She is bold, accusing, slandering and frankly immature in her not so worldly views of what was an obvious Mia-matched pair. On my way! Reason I finished it in the end was to see if #26 actually did anything wrong... And no not anymore than she did herself. Name calling, and mind games. Both guilty!!!

I think it takes 2 to make or break a relationship work and she had an opportunity to tell her side of one story & #25 & #26 get to clean up her mess!

If you're sitting on the fence about who to vote for, this book will provide a clear but concise discussion of the views, character, and politics of Mrs. Clinton. It will help you assess her suitability to be the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, and beyond that, the president of the United States.

Great turn to the story, BUT- (spoiler alert)never really understood what happened to Elizabeth's sister - good end, kind of expected, all in all I gave it 4 stars just because it gave it some closure but not quite the suspense as the other books-
