Lie to Me – J.T. Ellison

This is the second novel that I have read by J.T. Ellison. (The first was a Book of the Month Club selection, No One Knows.) Lie to Me was a much more wild ride, and I enjoyed this book quite a bit. Ethan and Sutton are living the dream in a picturesque town in Tennessee. They are both accomplished writers, they recently renovated their dream home, they are...

I thoroughly enjoyed the writing of that particular book, and have been a big fan of Camus...

Hundreds of authors, a giant crossword puzzle, and local beers all smack in the middle of Decatur Square. If you have not been to any of the restaurants in this area, go now with a quickness, as it is a...
