"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This book is a thriller in more ways than one. Unpredictable plot twists keep you guessing which of Megan's friends or family members is the killer, and the rekindled love between Megan and Will gets your pulse racing for other reasons. Ms. Marlow's story is full of humor, passion, and unforced drama that surrounds characters who are so appealing and realistic, it's easy to become emotionally involved in their lives. This is a book you won't want to put down once you begin, so make sure you have budgeted yourself enough time to read it all.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone that enjoys a great romance/mystery with lots of twists and turns.
After a day of swimming with their friends, Megan returns home to find her sister, niece and nephew murdered in a blood soaked bedroom. Will is right behind her, drawn into the gory scene by Megan's screams. Neither of them fare well in the aftermath of bloody murder. Megan grieves incessantly and withdraws into a near catatonic silence that lands her in a mental hospital. Will, in typical male fashion, denies the horror, tamps it down inside his mind. And every time he sees the grieving Megan, his heart and spirit break a little more for what might have been between them. Will knows he won't survive the sorrow or the memories very long, so he moves away from family and Megan. Twelve years later, he returns.
Neither Will nor Megan expect their youthful ties to be intact, but both pick up where they left off without missing a beat. They still share an easy camaraderie, a special brand of humor and a kinship that goes beyond explaining. And the teenage ardor Will tried to hide when they were younger rapidly becomes the openly desirous kisses, looks and touches of a man in love. Just when I was settling into the relationship and hoping it would work this time, a whole new set of murders begin. Monstrous, inexplicable murders. And Megan starts receiving gifts accompanied by flowers, just like the flowers that arrived the day her sister, niece and nephew were murdered.
"Roses for funerals, flowers for Megan"
A murderer so far gone in madness thinks and speaks those words aloud in a quest to separate her from anyone who might keep them apart. The demented monster kills with a message in mind, murders according to well laid plan. It soon becomes apparent, as both Will and others struggle to protect her, that the killer plans to drive Megan insane or be the instrument of her death, or maybe both.
Ms. Marlow really told this story well, with words that raced across each page in a style I found quite pleasing. Her characters were believable and charismatic. The relationship of Will and Megan was detailed realistically, with honest feelings and emotions. The author knew what she was doing from start to finish of this story. Any reader who likes mystery, suspense, or romance should enjoy this book immensely.
When Will sees Megan again, his attitude toward her begins to change. He no long wants to be her "twin." He wants something more. The same day he lets her know his true feelings for her, the unthinkable happens. Megan returns home to discover that Tessa and her two children have been brutally murdered. As Megan retreats into a world of depression and grief, Will finds that he can't stand by and watch her self-destruct. He leaves town, abandoning Megan and, he thinks, his love for her.
Now, years later, he receives a letter in the mail. His mother is ill, and Megan asks him to come home. He drops everything and heads back to be with his ailing mother - and to face Megan again. What will he feel when he sees her and what will this trip back into the past do to him - and to her? Answers begin to come quickly and painfully. Will must face the truth about himself, that his departure was cowardly and wrong. And, he must deal with the fact that his love for Megan is still strong. But he and Megan must also face something else. Something evil. His return coincides with a series of murders. After each killing, Megan receives flowers. Who is sending the flowers? What do the murders have to do with her - and with him? What has awakened the horror that destroyed Megan's family so many years ago? The questions and suspicions threaten to tear the town apart - and destroy Will's chance to find the love that he and Megan lost so long ago.
FLOWERS FOR MEGAN is an engrossing mystery - hard to put down. Gloria Marlow's style is reminiscent of Mary Higgins Clark. The twists and turns will keep you off balance. The characters are well drawn and compelling. This is a thoroughly enjoyable mystery by a new and talented author. More please, Ms. Marlow!
