A Quick Update

You may have noticed that I haven't been around for the past few days.  I do apologize for my absence and plan to be back with regular posts on Thursday at the latest.  

A close relative of mine is currently in the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital so I have spent some time there.  Things look pretty serious but I am hopeful.  
In other news, we adopted a puppy!  We probably didn't need a puppy but once I picked her up and cuddled her for a moment it was all over.  We haven't been able to bring her home yet but plan to Wednesday evening.  We are so excited that we can't hardly stand ourselves right now.  Hopefully, my other two dogs, Stella and Molly, will approve of the addition.  We are not 100% on the name yet but I think we will end up going with Piper.  Isn't she a cutie?

From the national bestselling author of Alice comes a postapocalyptic take on the perennial classic "Little Red Riding Hood"...about a woman who isn't as defenseless as she seems.

It's not safe for anyone alone in the woods. There are predators that come out at night: critters and coyotes, snakes and wolves. But the woman in the red jacket has no choice. Not since the Crisis came, decimated the population, and sent those who survived fleeing into quarantine camps that serve as breeding grounds for death, destruction, and disease. She is just a woman trying not to get killed in a world that doesn't look anything like the one she grew up in, the one that was perfectly sane and normal and boring until three months ago.

When Brooke’s older sister, Mindy, shows up at her door with her three kids in tow, she barely recognizes her sibling who looks like she’s on the verge of a total breakdown. While adventurous, wanderlust Brooke was always the problem child, eager to slip free of Wildstone and its small-town constraints, Mindy was the golden child, who never had a hair out of place or a GPA below 4.0. The Mindy that arrives at Brooke’s apartment however, is a far cry from the ever-perfect doctor’s wife.
