For many 30-somethings I know, the golden age of Craigslist provided a plethora of entertainment in addition to actual useful services. Need a couch? Concert tickets? New roommate? And hey, for a good chuckle, here's Missed Connections. Kelly Mahon took the entertainment value to a new level by placing prank ads on the site, and then chronicling her correspondence with the curious folks who answered her crazy queries. A quick and highly entertaining read, though I must admit I am especially disappointed that the title event never actually happened. ~ Reviewed by Ashley Castle
Megan Miranda's latest thriller is set in the bucolic New England beach town of Littleport, Maine, but despite it's staid exterior, the town is rife with scandals, rumors, and dark pasts. There are plenty of twists and turns as the book jumps back and forth in chronology, though the voice of the narrator, Avery, is consistent throughout. It's difficult to know who to trust, Avery herself included, as the commonly accepted narrative of her best friend's suicide begins to unravel and some of those nasty secrets rear their ugly heads. ~ Reviewed by Ashley Castle
