The Confessions of Frannie Langton
“Drawing on her experiences of growing up in the Cayman Islands, attending university in London, and practicing law, outstanding debut author Sara Collins has drawn a character one will not soon forget. Told with evocative language, Frannie Langton’s confession is a life story not to be missed. Raised on a sugar plantation in Jamaica, then transported to a life of servitude in London, Frannie lives a life of twists and turns of love and betrayal that will both shock and intrigue you. I was as tense as she was waiting for the verdict to be handed down. Thank you, Sara Collins!”Mary Mollman, Booked

The Rest of the Story
“I love Sarah Dessen books for my summer reads (or in winter when I'm craving summer again) so I found this to be the perfect summer read. In fact, it would be perfect for the beach! As always she delivered an entertaining read that has plenty of depth as well. In this one we have Emma who is introduced to her 'other' family for the first time since a small child. She spends part of the summer at this lake and getting to know her family history a bit. The narration was done well and fit the 'voice' of the characters quite well. It's been awhile since I'd read a Dessen book and this reminded me of how much I DO enjoy her!”Candace, Vintage Books
“Beautiful Bad opened with a police detective at the scene of a murder – but we have no idea who is murdered. More than a murder mystery it was a compelling story of the complex love between two friends and the hurt that results when their lives change. I loved hearing about Maddie and Joanna’s adventures in the dangerous places they lived and played. I liked both characters (at first) and thought I understand why their friendship ended. Hidden desires, dark secrets, much manipulation, and an ultimate murder come painfully together as all lives are torn apart. Beautiful Bad was a riveting story with a surprise ending…is this a fight for survival, or something much more sinister?”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
