It Happens All the Time, by Amy Hatvany, an eARC from NetGalley, a provocative and compelling novel about two friends whose lives are changed by a drunken kiss.
I’m enjoying this one, although I’m not that far into it. I am a fan of the author, however, so I am looking forward to fully immersing myself.
The Good Daughter, by Alexandra Burt (click title for my review).

I am eager to start reading another e-ARC I have received from NetGalley, which will be released on April 11: One Perfect Lie, by Lisa Scottoline.

Susan Sematov is proud of her son Raz, a high school pitcher so athletically talented that he’s being recruited for a full-ride scholarship to a Division I college, with a future in major-league baseball. But Raz’s father died only a few months ago, leaving her son in a vulnerable place where any new father figure might influence him for good, or evil.
Heather Larkin is a struggling single mother who lives for her son Justin’s baseball games. But Justin is shy, and Heather fears he is being lured down a dark path by one of his teammates, a young man from an affluent family whose fun-loving manner might possibly conceal his violent plans.
Mindy Kostis succumbs to the pressure of being a surgeon’s wife by filling her days with social events and too many gin and tonics. But she doesn’t know that her husband and her son, Evan, are keeping secrets from her – secrets that might destroy all of them.
At the center of all of them is Chris Brennan. Why is he there? What does he want? And what is he willing to do to get it?
