NEW WINNER: Serena (anedia@…..)
So, I was trolling through the Goodreads Giveaways section and stumbled upon this book that captured my attention immediately! I know…I know… I need another book like I need a hole in the head, but IJUSTCAN’TSTOPMYSELF!! I mean, doesn’t this brief blurb just suck you right in?!?!
“A smart, chilling look at women’s lives in the tradition of Single White Female..”
Author: Lucy Dawson
Publication Date: November 30, 2010
From Lucy Dawson, author of His Other Lover, comes a smart and chilling look at the shadowy side of friendship.
For Alice, life’s a bit too boringly grown-up lately—weekends at weddings and baby showers; celebrating friends’ transitions to a life she isn’t quite up for yet; and a sweet, stable boyfriend she suspects she’s outgrown. So when she meets Gretchen for the first time, it feels a bit like falling in love. Gretchen, with her air of impulsiveness and intuitive style, is that rarest of treasures: a true friend who knows how to have fun. Plus there’s Gretchen’s gorgeous brother, Bailey, who might turn out to be exactly what Alice needs. Before she knows what’s hit her, Alice’s brilliant new best friend is turning her world upside down—seemingly for the better.
But Gretchen has a dark secret, which, like a time bomb, won’t stay hidden forever. The explosion may teach them both more than they ever wanted to know about how female friendships can go frighteningly wrong.
Sounds CRAZY, right?! I wonder what the dark secret is??!! And the cover is kinda creepy too, with the wisp of hair masking the girl’s face… Ooooh, I can’t wait to read this one!

There is just something about the holding of hands with the water and the lighthouse that takes me to my favorite place on earth – the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
