Where is the time going?? Fast and slow at the same time – fast that it is already mid-July and school starts up again in a month. Slow in that we are still without a kitchen, but seem to be on the more fun side of things now as our cabinets are going in!!
I’ve been reading – just slower. And no books have really stood out. I’m so far behind on reviews right now – I think I’m due a “catch-up” post. But I did start a new one this week. A July Kindle First read. Crooked Little Lies by Barbara Taylor Sissel releasing August 1, 2015. (Click on book or see below for description.) Doesn’t have me hooked just yet – but we’ll see – it’s still quite early!
“Why hadn’t she asked him what was wrong? Why hadn’t she slid in beside him and put her arms around him? She bit her lip.

What do you think? Thanks for coming by and bearing with me through my “construction” – please leave your teaser in the comments!
On a cool October morning, Lauren Wilder is shaken when she comes close to striking Bo Laughlin with her car as he’s walking along the road’s edge. A young man well known in their small town of Hardys Walk, Texas, Bo seems fine, even if Lauren’s intuition says otherwise. Since the accident two years ago that left her brain in a fragile state, she can’t trust her own instincts—and neither can her family. Then Bo vanishes, and as the search for him ensues, the police question whether she’s responsible. Lauren is terrified, not of what she remembers but of what she doesn’t.
Unable to trust herself and unwilling to trust anyone else, Lauren begins her own investigation into the mystery of Bo’s disappearance. But the truth can prove to be as shocking as any lie, and as Lauren exposes each one, from her family, from her friends, she isn’t the only one who will face heart-stopping repercussions.
