A Glance Back at July

We mom's have a secret mission – to be the cool one in front of our children and their friends. So on our return from a field trip, I took my son and his friends to Leatherby's - a delicious ice cream parlor. This made me think, Selecting a new book is a lot like deciding on what flavor of ice cream to have. We all have it – that one flavor that is sure to please. I'm of the boring sort; vanilla always satisfies. But the plethora of options made me want to try something new. Salted caramel to be exact. I love caramel; I enjoy salt. What could go wrong? My taste buds completely objected. Which is the case with the psychological thriller, The Girl on the Train. It is a publishing sensation I couldn't resist. Unfortunately, it is definitely a salted caramel.
