"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The main characters are believable with realistic motivations for getting involved, although I felt how they first met – in college years before – a bit coincidental and wasn’t really necessary for the story to work.
That they didn’t fall into bed shortly after reconnecting was a plus.
A minus was Nikolai got a little long-winded in her descriptions several places. The final chapter seemed a bit rushed, as if she had to get it written fast. She did, however, take the main characters in a direction that was non-conventional and, therefore, fresh.
I’ll read more in this series if they come my way.
For me, the author could have told the story in half the pages. After forcing myself to read 1/3 of the book, I skipped to the end to read the expected ending. No surprises and no chance I'll read the further adventures of Megan and Michael!
Megan Scott suffers the ultimate betrayal when she learns of her husband's affair through a double murder. Her once-happy life unravels and even worse, she discovers that she and investigative reporter Michael Elliott are the prime suspects.
Megan wants to trust Michael, but the evidence says otherwise. Is he a victim too, or part of the deception? As they fight to prove their innocence, they also fall in love.
Can't wait to read the next installment in the Megan Scott/Michael Elliott series.

Exit Strategy (Kat Carter Fraud Thriller Series #1)
Ghostwriter Megan Scott becomes a suspect when her husband and his companion are found murdered. Startling evidence surfaces to implicate a young investigative reporter, Michael Elliott--who'd rather rub elbows with Montreal's drug-dealing underbelly than live the posh lifestyle he's inherited. In order to exonerate herself, Megan is flung into Michael's dark world of criminal investigation. As Megan and Michael make a last-ditch effort to prove their innocence, the real killer closes in on them. Someone wants them out of the way and the author never lets us forget it.
The book kept me sucked into the story until the end. It's about murder and deceit, two of my favorite subjects, and there are suspects galore. But the book is also about what dislocation feels like since Megan Scott, who tells the story, deals with the shock and the anger of betrayal and we see life through her eyes.
FALSE IMPRESSIONS really connected me to life. It's a sparkling book, a book that plunked me smack dab onto the streets of Montreal, into its neighborhoods, its restaurants, its churches, its red light district, and beyond. I felt like I was walking the streets of Montreal with Megan and Michael. And as a bonus, I learned how to say "electric butt cheeks" in French. I mean, what more could a reader want?
If you're into mystery and memorable characters, if you'd like a taste of the "je ne sais quoi" of Montreal, then FALSE IMPRESSIONS by Sandra Nikolai is a book for you.
I agree with another reviewer that the book was well-written, but there was little story. There were also no compelling characters. The story is told from Megan's perspective and, while she is likable enough, she just isn't very interesting.
