Alone by Lisa Gardner

Just as i thought i had it figured out.... it turned out to be something NASTY .... ewwwww lol

It was an OK book but not her best in my opinion

From Booklist

It was bad enough that Catherine Gagnon survived a horrible childhood abduction where for a month she lived in a cave and was the plaything for her sicko abductor. But now, 25 years later, she faces tragedy again as she fights to keep her son, Nathan. One chilly November night, a police sniper kills her husband, Jimmy, in response to her 911 call claiming he was about to hurt Nathan. Jimmy's death means that his parents, an influential judge and his blue-blooded wife, are more determined than ever to take Nathan from Catherine, whom they see as unfit to mother their only grandchild. True, the birth of Nathan mentally paralyzed Catherine, who could not get past the memories of her abduction and her emotionally absent parents. But is she really the monster the Gagnons and their PI make her out to be? Massachusetts state police special-ops officer Bobby Dodge, the sniper who took out Jimmy, doesn't think so, and unwittingly falls under the spell of the manipulative widow. A twisted, effective psychological thriller. Mary Frances WilkensCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved

On another note: i came home yesterday to see my Amazon order sitting on the porch. Doesn't take much to make me happy. LOL
My parents came in from Baton Rouge late last night. I now have my very own Pooky (from Garfield) its just so darn cute.

As for my next read, I started reading "The Eyre Affair" by Jasper Fforde. Ive been hearing good things about it lately so i thought i'd give it a try.

    Oh--I have a friend who read The Eyre Affair and loved it! I'm wanting to get that one, too. I haven't read Alone yet, but I probably will....when I work up to it, LOL. I have to read her books spaced far apart because sometimes they're disturbing!
