Veterinarian Matty Connors'' visions lead her to homicide detective Brian Sullivan once again despite her resolve to remain anonymous the past four years. Her official work with the police in California resulted in the brutal murder of her fianc, and since, a recurrent nightmare she barely survives. Brian, the reputed ladies man of the Sullivan family, has yet to give his heart to a woman until Matty lays claim to it. His black-and-white approach to solving crimes doesn''t jibe with Matty''s spooky pronouncements or her reputation for alleged infallibility. A wild goose chase searching for a murder weapon casts doubt on Matty''s truths and threatens their smoldering romance. Is Brian her nightmare slayer and ultimate truth? When the puzzle pieces fall in place for Brian, will it be too late to save Matty?

Lies They Teach in School
"So, you graduated top of your class. Well, good for you. No seriously, we're quite proud of you. But did you know that many things taught as ""facts"" in school are nothing but a pack of filthy lies? It's true. LIES!! Well, time to set your brain and education straight with Lies They Teach in School. You'll learn the truth behind many lies, such as: The United States did not vote for independence on July fourth. French fries did not originate in France. Cleopatra was not Egyptian. Charles Darwin didn't coin the phrase ""survival of the fittest."" And oh so much more! But it's not our teachers' faults. History is often written by the victors and also, like a time travelling game of telephone, it gets distorted as it's told and retold. Lies They Teach in School explore those things we accept as history that either never happened or didn't happen the way we were told they did. Such items are taught in schools. But they are wrong. Touching on a number of topics (including history, current events, government, sports, geography, and popular culture), Lies They Teach in School exposes errors that have been perpetuated for far too long. It will certainly start a number of arguments, and settle a few others."

Where black maids raise white children, but aren't trusted not to steal the silver...There's Aibileen, raising her seventeenth white child and nursing the hurt caused by her own son's tragic death; Minny, whose cooking is nearly as sassy as her tongue; and white Miss Skeeter, home from College, who wants to know why her beloved maid has disappeared.

"Harper Lee's classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" has changed lives. Its direct descendent "The Help" has the same potential ...an astonishing feat of accomplishment". ("Daily Express").
