Dr. Theodore Grant worked hard his entire life to achieve his goals. He was a prominent, renowned psychiatrist. He had it all: wealth, prestige, respect. Or so he thought. When tragedy unexpectedly struck, he was forced to help his best friend’s daughter. She needed him. What he didn’t know was that he needed her, too - like his own breath. How could he know it would all go so terribly wrong? That he would cross the line?

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this story but I was pleasantly surprised. The story line over and above my expectations. Eden adopted discovers why and what happened. Theo discovered his dead sister was not dead but had been adopted. Throughout this discovery they have a once in a lifetime discovery of love. My first thought was that they were brother and sisters but the age difference disproved that. So many discovery’s and forbidden love.
I loved this book

Diverse, dark-humored, and deliciously bite-sized: JT Lawrence ratchets up the tension with this compelling collection of short stories perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn and Roald Dahl. "Gatsby’s Double" - An artist’s Pomeranian has been replaced by an imposter. "Court, Marry, Kill" - Whose body ends up being unzipped by fish on the ocean floor? "Rockabye Baby" - A female-only cult has a very dark side. "He Did It" - A detective relies on his gut (and his hallucinations) to help him solve murder cases.

If I were asked which one of the stories stood out among all the others I would have to say it was the one of the mother who drops her daughter at school daily and than one day she goes to pick her up and the school is gone.
All the stories are though provoking and makes you try to figure out the end but you never can.

I wish I could have given a better review but since I didn’t enjoy the story. Maybe this is how it was in the “70” in Belgium and makes me glad that grew up in the USA and not in a foreign country.

This is the shocking, true story of survival - and the intense bond June shared with her pathologically violent husband, a monster who physically and sexually tortured, degraded, and dominated her so relentlessly she refused to believe he was dead even after she killed him.

Never have I listened to an audiobook that brought tears to my eyes. In all my 65 years I have been lucky to never have experienced such a horrific experience in my life and now I understand just how and why women stay in this kind of relationship it’s not a choice of their on but a choice of survival. I pray June has been able to reconnect with her children and have a positive impact on their life. I’m happy that she found a man who will treat her with the respect she so deserves.
Wonderfully written.

Aunt pearl is a hoot in this book as she was in book two. Cen is engaged to Braden the town mayor who also happens to be in the process of trying to sell her family home and property. Than there is the murder of the developer. I absolutely love this author and her ability to write this wonderful story line of witch’s and the new sheriff in town.

We live in a culture of consumerism. We are constantly told buying more products will improve our quality of life and bring us happiness. However, out of the madness of mass consumerism, a new trend is developing. This new trend emphasizes “less is more” and people who follow it strive to live their best life with as little as possible. This trend is called minimalism.

I never thought of myself as a minimalist before I listened to this book. Most of this I have been doing for a long time. So I guess in a way I am a minimalist. But he did talk about cleaning and that really got me to thinking, I have a attic full of stuff that I see some of once a year. The rest of stuff has been up there for years and I have no clue what is there. Need to do some cleaning.
Also I love the financial and time management that he spoke about.
