Goodreads Summary: The Rumor (audible)

Madeline King and Grace Pancik are best friends and the envy of Nantucket for their perfect marriages, their beautiful kids, their Sunday night double dates with their devoted husbands. But this summer, something’s changed, and if there’s anything Nantucket likes better than cocktails on the beach at sunset, it’s a good rumor.

And rumor has it…

…that Madeline, a novelist, is battling writer’s block, with a deadline looming, bills piling up, and blank pages driving her to desperation–and a desperately bad decision;

…that Grace, hard at work to transform her backyard into a garden paradise, has been collaborating a bit more closely that necessary with her ruggedly handsome landscape architect;

…that Grace’s husband, successful island real estate developer “Fast Eddie” Pancik, has embarked on quite an unusual side project;

…that the storybook romance between Madeline’s son, Brick, and Grace’s daughter Allegra is on the rocks, heading for disaster.

As the gossip escalates, and they face the possible loss of the happy lives they’ve worked so hard to create, Grace and Madeline try mightily to set the record straight–but the truth might be even worse than rumor has it

My Review – 5 stars 

Great plot…I was captivated and waiting for it all to blow up in everyone’s face…great ending. A MUST READ!!!!

Really didn’t feel bad for Grace, she is stupid, spoiled, and privileged and rather be off having an affair than raising her daughters. Does Benton REALLY love her????

Eddie is despicable…got what he deserved. Madeline…really a bad decision, why????

Allegra is only doing what she was raised to do…and poor Hope seems to be forgotten about.

Gossip and rumors are everywhere, it’s amazing how much they can destroy a life.

The kids are becoming like their parents, living life as if they are the most important people on the planet and gossiping about everyone else…hoping to hurt them.

  Highlight for spoilers… (((Grace is stupid, spoiled, and privileged. She rather have an affair than raise her kids. She would never leave Eddie, because money and a privileged life is more important to her.  Eddie is a pig, prostituting out girls only a few years older than his daughters. He deserved a real prison, not the easy time he’s getting. Benton thought he loved Grace, but he loved his career more. He was planning to leave after the summer anyway. It was all fun for him and he got int he paper. Madeline using her friend’s life for her book, no excuses! Yes be mad her and her daughter are cheating, but don’t write about her life. Glad she never published it. Eddie’s sister Barbie, what a pig she is too. She helped Eddie and knew what was coming and never warned him. Then she gets off free????
Thankfully Allegra learned her lesson and with her sister’s help turned her life around. Maybe there is a better life for Allegra? Maybe she will be a real sister for Hope now? There is hope that when Eddie gets out of prison he will start a new life with Grace and treat her like his wife instead of never being home.))) 

Goodreads Summary: Skewed(Audible)

No birth announcement could top the headlines from the day Janie and Jack Perkins entered the world. As twins born to a mother in a coma—courtesy of a bullet from their father—the sensational story of their birth never quite died down. While Jack still craves the flash of a camera, Janie seeks sanctuary behind the lens—as a crime scene photographer.

Thanks to Janie’s line of work, she’s comfortable around gruesome murders. But when old photos of her mother’s body arrive in the mail, they open deep-seated wounds and raise chilling new questions about who really was responsible for that deadly night.

Did Janie’s father spend decades in jail as an innocent man? Did an infamous serial killer actually take her mother’s life? With photos in hand, Janie brings the truth into focus. But when her investigation ends up evoking the wrath of the long-dormant killer, she must race to piece together the final evidence—before she becomes the target.

Got good reviews on Audible and seems like a twisted, but captivating read. Really hope it’s not predictable and has the unexpected ending everyone says it will.
