SPOILERS for Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda


Paul was a complete psychopath and had been slowly poisoning Mia with arsenic so that he could be free to be with his young girlfriend and he would be in charge of Mia's wealth.  He was planning on taking her to their lake cabin to finish her off without doing it in front of their children.

The big twist was that Mia had it figured out.  Their neighbor at the lake was retired from the CIA and one day over gardening she laid out her story and the neighbor figured it out.  They figured out Paul's plan and had their own counterplan.  Forcing him to sign marriage dissolution papers.  But not before beating the crap out of the neighbor and setting fire to another couple's house.

The end of the book was a true "woman power" moment.  It was thrilling and exciting and perfect.

SPOILERS for The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman



The Owens children lost their parents in a car accident. They were in a cab trying to chase down Jet who had run off to be with her boyfriend.  The cab her parents were in had hit and killed her boyfriend, Levi.  She never loved again.

Vincent discovered that he was gay, but not before fathering a child, Regina, with their third cousin.  He was happy and in love with a professor.  But then the Vietnam war started and Vincent was drafted.  To protect him the sisters enlisted the help of Hay and snuck Vincent off to Europe, where he faked his death to live the rest of his life with the love of his life, William.

It is Regina's daughters who grew to be the sisters featured in Practical Magic. They came to their aunts after Regina was killed in a car accident.

SPOILERS for Turtles All the Way Down by John Green


Aza found out that Daisy's Star Wars fan-fiction featured a character based on Aza.  The character was depicted as "useless" and basically was no fun and exhausting and a horrible friend.  When Aza confronts her about the fan-fiction they get in a fight while Aza is driving and there is a horrible car accident.  In the hospital, Aza gets caught drinking hand sanitizer to help rid her body of the microbes that she is sure is wreaking havoc on her body.  It is the way her mother discovers just how close Aza is to losing it all.

After a few weeks, Aza goes back to school and makes up with Daisy. A little too quickly for my liking.  After the fight, I really did not like Daisy.   The author could have used this point to illustrate that it is okay to end a friendship with someone.  However, forgiveness is an honorable quality.

They figure out that the billionaire drowned in the river and his body has been in a sewer all this time.  Aza told Davis their suspicions.  He called in the anonymous tip that found his body.
