- Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Friend Me by John Faubion- Eerily Intense and Fabulously Suspenseful!
Friend Me had me hooked from the first page. It was unbelievably suspenseful and that deliciously eerie feeling didn't let go for one second. Here's the scenario... Imagine if you could create a virtual online friend. An imaginary confidante you could share your secrets with, discuss personal matters without judgement or perhaps just a makes you feel less alone. Innocent enough, right? But what happens if that "virtual" friend is... real? And they want to become more than friends. Perhaps they even want to become YOU...
Scott and Rachel are a young married couple with typical marriage issues. As a way of escaping their problems they create virtual friends. In the beginning, these "friends" are quite helpful. They're always available, ultra supportive and excellent listeners. But then something happens. A "real" person gets involved. Someone who takes over for the virtual friends and decides she wants to play a role in Scott and Rachel's marriage. A very dark and sinister twist to the story, indeed...
I loved this book. Suspense is my favorite genre and John Faubion delivers! The storyline was refreshingly unique, the characters were realistic (could be your next door neighbors) and electric suspense was evident on every page! The chilling villain, Melissa, was masterfully created and I thoroughly enjoyed watching her weave her web. She reminded me of Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. Beautiful, intelligent, but undeniably insane. I appreciated how the author kept a focus on God throughout the story, too. I highly recommend Friend Me. It's a wild ride- Buckle up and enjoy the adrenalin rush.
