The Liar's Diary: A book review

Do you ever have those moments when you are watching a movie, or reading a book, when you are telling the person to not go in there, or don't do that! Yet, somehow they always do it anyway! This book is the definition of freaky and gripping. A suspense thriller with a surprising twist! Lies will not get you anywhere but in more trouble and hiding.

Jeanne Cross's contented suburban life gets a jolt of energy from the arrival of Ali Mather, the stunning new music teacher at the local high school. With a magnetic personality and looks to match, Ali draws attention from all quarters, including Jeannie's husband and son. Nonetheless, Jeannie and Ali develop a deep friendship based on their mutual vulnerabilities and the long-held secrets that Ali has been recording in her diary. The diary also holds a key to something darker: Ali's suspicion that someone has been entering her house when she is not at home. Soon their friendship will be shattered by violence-and Jeanne will find herself facing impossible choices in order to protect the people she loves.

This one sounds pretty good too. I see a trip to the library coming up even if I don't get these books.
