Saving Ben

Life is sweet for Katherine Langley, a first-year student at the University of Virginia. She is finally free from the drama of her parents’ dysfunctional marriage and ready to focus on studying to become a nurse. Her brother, Ben, belongs to the hottest fraternity on campus, and her roommate, Emma, is beautiful and charming, a party girl whose answer for a hangover is happy hour. She is also a psychopath.

When OCD Ben succumbs to Emma’s charms and falls dangerously off-track, Katherine must save her brother from himself.

From the UVA campus to a cozy cottage on Carter’s Creek, Saving Ben is a haunting tale of love and loyalty and family relationships. Anger management, substance abuse, and mental illness.

A New Year’s Eve party, a missing person, and a single set of footprints in the snow.

If you enjoyed the Sweeney Sisters series, you're gonna love Palmetto Island!

Birdie Fuller’s new year is off to a bad start. Her husband has mysteriously disappeared, leaving Birdie to cope with their unmarried daughter’s unplanned pregnancy. Birdie and Hannah disagree about the baby. Birdie urges her daughter to consider abortion, but Hannah is determined to see the pregnancy to term. When Hannah returns for her last semester in college, Birdie must face her demons, the problems in her marriage that drove her husband to clean out their bank accounts and run off with another woman.

While struggling to hide her pregnancy from her roommates and ex-boyfriend, Hannah interviews for jobs that will take her and her baby far away from her mother. After graduation, with months to kill before the start of her new job, she returns to Palmetto Island for the summer to await the birth of her baby. Tension mounts between Hannah and Birdie when they move from their waterfront home to a two-bedroom apartment above a bakery. Can mother and daughter mend their relationship? Or will they be lost to each other forever?

While this one may have been shorter than a traditional novel, it packed a lot of punch and set the stage in so many ways for the rest of the series.⁣
I love that her books are filled with so many realistic characters and situations. It makes the reader feel even closer to everything that unfolds. Also, she doesn't shy away from taboo topics like alcoholism, unplanned / single parent pregnancy, abortion, bullying, infidelity, etc. The best part is that she writes characters that you cannot help but fight for and these topics are discussed with tact and heart which can be difficult to pull off.
