Synopsis:

“A shattering adventure.” ― Jacquelyn Mitchard, bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean

A mother’s chance decision leads to a twist of fate that is every parent’s worst nightmare

It is the wrong time to get sick. Speeding down the highway on the way to work, her two little girls sleeping in the back seat, medical resident Claire Rawlings doesn’t have time for the nausea overtaking her. But as the world tilts sideways, she pulls into a gas station, runs to the bathroom, and passes out. When she wakes up minutes later, her car―and her daughters―are gone.

The police have no leads, and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each hour passes with no trace of her girls. All she has to hold on to are her strained marriage, a potentially unreliable witness who emerges days later, and the desperate but unquenchable belief that her daughters are out there somewhere.

As hopeful and uplifting as it is devastating, Little Lovely Things is the story of a family shattered by unthinkable tragedy, and the unexpected intersection of heartbreak and hope.

Perfect for readers of Watch Me Disappear and After Anna!

Additional Praise for Little Lovely Things:
“Little Lovely Things is an insightful and moving read that is well worth the journey.” ― Vivian Schilling, bestselling author of Quietus

“Combining the suspense and razor-sharp outlook of a Gillian Flynn novel, Maureen Connolly’s debut sizzles. I finished Little Lovely Things in one heartbreaking, tear-batting gulp. Connolly takes risks that make the reader’s heart start anew. Finding shards of hope amidst the chaos of tragedy is a testament to both the writer, and the characters she creates.” ― Jenny Milchman, USA Today bestselling author of Wicked River

Can You See Us Now? by Cheryl Benton

Title: Can You See Us Now 

Subtitle:   A Novel For Grownups

Author: Cheryl Benton

Genre: Fiction/Women’s Fiction/Contemporary Fiction

Format: Paperback & eBook

Publisher: The Three Tomatoes

Pages:   338 pages

Publication Date: February 6, 2018

Synopsis:    Three best friends rebel against unsolicited AARP cards, hot flashes, bosses, becoming invisible, and the perceptions of what’s old. Suzy, Trish, and Madge, best friends since their early twenties, seemed to have it all. Beautiful, smart, and successful, they’d made it to the top in the most demanding city of them all, New York. Then they turned 50 and found that the world which once was their oyster started closing up faster than a New York minute. Bartenders ignore them, bosses marginalize them, and they’ve aged out of the prized 25-49 year-old demographic that marketers woo. They had suddenly become invisible. Inspired by their friendships with a supportive and thriving group of New York City women, who call themselves the “Ripe Tomatoes,” Suzy, Trish, and Madge start to realize the power of saying, “YES,” and that living your dreams has nothing to do with age. And since no one else was celebrating women over 50, Suzy, Trish, and Madge started a business to do just that. A funny and moving insider’s story about New York City’s not-so-invisible women over 50 and beyond, who are living their lives to the fullest, achieving dreams, dating, having sex, and sometimes even falling in love again. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll root them on, and you’ll never think about age the same way again. Suzy, a top ad agency executive with a wonderful supportive husband and two great kids, had propelled little known brands into household names. Then she looked around one day and realized she was the oldest person in the conference room and her “12-year old” boss dismisses most of her ideas as appealing only to women with “dried up vaginas.” Trish owns an art gallery, is married to a wealthy hedge fund guy, has a fabulous apartment overlooking Central Park, a summer home in the Hamptons, and a closet full of couture clothes…until her life is turned upside down by those dreaded words, “We have to talk.” Madge, is a highly regarded TV journalist who has traveled the world on assignments and knows celebrities, presidents and kings by their first names, but has been too busy pursuing a career to have a life – until she’s pushed out of her TV morning show and replaced by a 30-something former beauty queen and Harvard graduate.
