Content:
This book is the third in the Nero and Shamus series featuring investigative reporter Carter Ross. Reading his own paper's obituaries, Carter Ross comes across a woman named Nancy Marino who died in a hit and run car accident while she was actually on the job delivering copies of that very paper, the Eagle-Examiner. Struck by the opportunity to write a heroic piece about an everyday woman killed too young, he heads to her wake to gather tributes and anecdotes. But it is the last place Carter expects to find controversy, which he does when one of Nancy's sisters convinces him the accident might not have been an accident at all. Turns out the kind and generous Nancy may have made a few enemies after all, starting with her boss at a diner where she was a part-time waitress and even including the publisher of the Eagle-Examiner. Carter's investigation of this seemingly simple story soon has him in big trouble with his fulltime editor and sometime girlfriend, Tina Thompson, and the rest of the bosses at the paper, but he can't let it go, the story might be too good. But will his nose for trouble finally take him too far

The Girl Next Door Synopsis

Show more Show less

When it comes to love, go big or go home.

Bend or Break, Book 3

Charles “Cash” Carmichael traded his high-rise condo and family-firm career for a job coaching soccer for Chicago’s inner-city kids. He’s adjusting to living on minimum wage when his young cousin, newly out and running away from home, shows up on his less-than-luxurious doorstep.

Angsty teens definitely aren’t Cash’s thing. He needs local backup, and there’s only one name he can think of: Stephany Tyler. Back in the day, the bisexual Steph was the perfect friend with benefits until she fell in love with a woman.

To his relief, his former friend steps up to the plate. Soon, though, Cash finds himself feeling the familiar need to keep her in his bed, and in his life. But Steph, burned by the ex-girlfriend and by the absentee dad she’s been trying to connect with, won’t risk her heart again.

Good thing Cash believes in leaving it all on the field. If he can just convince Steph to get in the game, there’s a chance they can both win.

Warning: This book contains ex-friends with benefits crossing boundaries a second time, several steamy encounters on staircases, copious discussions about gay sex from a “straight” guy, a shout-out to magic buttons, and an especially memorable going away threesome.

Cash sat on the edge of the barstool, halfway to standing because the adrenaline humming in his veins made sitting still torture. Every time the door creaked, he whipped his head around so fast it made him dizzy, but it was always a stranger.

Pressing a hand to his stomach, Cash nodded at the cute bartender with the high ponytail when she lifted an eyebrow at him. He was gonna end up blowing his beer budget for the month on dinner and drinks at this tapas restaurant.

Here’s hoping his parents’ birthday money arrived soon.

The next time he turned to the restaurant entrance, the woman walking in wasn’t a stranger.

Steph strode through the glass doors after holding them open for a woman with a double-wide stroller, which meant Cash could see her before she had a chance to look around for him. He’d stood up again at the sound of the door opening, but fell back in his seat with a thump when he recognized the woman laughing and waiting for the mom to squeeze ahead of her.

Holy shit. Steph looked good .

“Dude!” Her face got brighter when she spotted him, cheeks rounding, eyes smiling.

He winced. Like Reese, that was her way of giving him a verbal high five, greeting him with the word he’d abused to the point of comedy in college.

“Hey, lady. I am so glad to see you.” He scooped her up in his arms, lifting her feet off the ground in a hug while she laughed and told him to put her down. It made him happy, hugging her. Steph had always been a small, curvy armful of awesome. Nothing about that had changed in the two years since he’d last seen her. “Man, you look fantastic. Do you have to beat the boys and girls off with a stick these days?”

He wasn’t even exaggerating. Maybe it was the heels, which he’d never once seen her wear when they were at school. Or the nipped-in curves of the tailored black dress that wrapped around her and tied at the side, leaving her arms and her legs below the knees bare. Perfectly ordinary business wear, but somehow utterly sexy on a body he remembered being eternally clad in cut-offs and combat boots.

Steph blushed, which was new. He didn’t remember that from before, ever. She’d always been the one to make other people blush, him in particular, with her determination to introduce him to all kinds of things he’d never experienced before.

Stop thinking about that.

Sitting through dinner sporting wood the entire time was not part of the plan. Not that he actually had a plan beyond, See Steph. Beg for help.

Get her naked. his traitorous brain whispered. We were missing Step Three of this plan. Obviously.

He talked right over his own stupid thoughts. This was no time for fooling around. “Seriously. You look like a grown-up. Is this what you wear all the time? Because I can hardly get over it.”

“Depends on the day. Today I was at the mayor’s office, so I’m all fancy. As you can see.”

See, he did indeed. He could hardly miss seeing. “Damn, I remembered you shorter.”

“The mayor’s got an aide who likes tall women.” She grinned wickedly. “I spent most of the afternoon making a case against cutting funding for our program from the budget this year, since it’s on the chopping block. Again.”

“Lucky man, spending the afternoon with you.” Flattery came easy around Steph, mostly because he was hella jealous of anyone who got to spend time with her. It had been ages since he’d been lucky like that, going back most of the way to their junior year at Carlisle.

Steph shook her head as the hostess led them to a table in the elevated room at the back, two short steps up from the main floor. The large alcove had a peculiar feel—they were basically dining in a deli, the cases for to-go cold tapas, meats and cheeses lining the small room—but the noise level was lower than being at one of the dozens of tables lined up in rows like stripes across the more cavernous main room of the restaurant. His co-workers loved coming here because the food was pretty cheap, and delicious, but Cash spent most of those group outings wishing he could hear any of what was being said by people other than his immediate neighbors.

After pulling out her chair, he waited for her to start sitting and slid it in. She was still laughing at him as he sat down on the other side of the small table. “What?”

“Not a lucky man.”

He cast his thoughts back. Spotted the error in his assumption about the mayor’s aide immediately. It was a sign of how long it had been since they’d hung out that she’d been able to nail him with that one. “Lucky woman .”

“She’s a bit old for me, but very striking.” Wiggling her eyebrows at him, Steph grabbed a menu. Cash ignored his, already knowing what he’d order.

“So… How are you doing? Tell me everything.” He meant it. He was damn curious about her life since graduation. She wasn’t much for Facebook posts or Instagram, although Cash had caught a glimpse of her here and there on the Internet. Coated in mud at an outdoor concert in the rain, or one of those Tough Mudder races maybe. Sitting on a couch with her mom, wearing a Santa hat.

You check out all her social media accounts at least once a month. Who are you trying to kid here?

“No way. You first. What’s going on with your cousin?”

Catching her up to speed about Denny didn’t take long. “Reese is gonna come visit, sort of take him under his wing, I guess, but he can’t get a cheap ticket less than two weeks out. I figure Denny can come to work with me most days, like volunteering. But Reese told me maybe you could help in the meantime. Said you were working with the LGBTQ community.” He remembered when the initials used to tangle his tongue.

“Yeah, but with seniors, not teens. I work for a group that helps queer seniors advocate for their needs, especially in regards to housing and health care.”

Cash tried to picture it and got stuck on pictures of the leather daddies who flooded the city during the annual International Mr. Leather competition each summer. He’d seen more than a couple of tough old dudes tooling around the city on their Harleys in leather vests and chaps, and not much else, but hell…health care was hard for anyone. Being a badass leatherman didn’t make that problem go away, he bet.

“That’s cool. I’m sorry I didn’t call you yet. I heard you’d moved here.”

She waved his apology away. “I’ve been insanely busy at work. Plus, I started talking to my dad last year.”

“Really?” That was big news. All he knew about Steph’s dad was the man had bailed when she was a toddler. “That’s…amazing.”

Her smile could have set the room on fire, though if one of his students had smiled like that, he’d have kept a close eye on them, sure they were bullshitting something. “Isn’t it? We’ve been emailing. He lives out in the suburbs here. Got remarried and has a couple of kids. We’re talking about spending some time together. It’s been pretty exciting.”

“I’m happy for you.” He kept it to himself how weird it all sounded. If the guy was only a couple of towns away, what was the holdup? But he didn’t want to tarnish the happiness shining out of her.

“So, I’m not sure how much help I can be for local resources. I’m still learning about the community. But I know some people who work with the kids at the Center on Halsted, and one of the churches has a youth group. We’ll figure it out.”

Cash kept his mouth shut, pretty sure Denny’s parents were much like his own, which would mean the kid hadn’t seen the inside of a church for anything except Christmas or Easter since he was little. Their server arrived and they ordered a little bit of everything, egg tortilla and marinated mushrooms, olives and ham and cheese. Plus one of the ceramic pitchers of red wine sangria. After the server left, Steph picked up where she’d left off.

“Let me make some calls. I can try to hook him up with some kids his own age who are going through the same stuff. Plus, I’ll ask around, see if I can get a line on some good family counselors back east. Do you think his parents would go?”

“Shit, I don’t know. I hardly know them. They seem nice. And they didn’t flip out or anything. I think they’re just hoping that it’s some kind of play for attention. If they ignore it, maybe it’ll go away.”

She leaned forward on her elbows and he tried not to notice the way doing that deepened the V-neck of her dress. With cleavage as attention-getting as Steph’s, it was hard not to look sometimes, especially when you’d seen the woman naked.

He wondered if she ever thought about him naked. The idea made him sit up straighter. Nothing was quite the same when you weren’t running twenty to thirty miles a week during cross country season or drilling sprints for track, but he still ran, played basketball every weekend, and biked to and from work during the Chicago months where he could do so without killing himself on roads slick with ice that the city’s fleet of salt trucks couldn’t handle.

I still look damn good naked. He flexed his chest muscles unobtrusively, popping his pecs. Going to a gym was out of his budget these days, but he’d picked up a set of those colorful weights that looked as if they were dipped in liquid plastic and gathered dust like a mother**ker when he went too long without using them. Which seemed like most of the time now that he was wishing his chest were broader.

“Are you flexing your pecs at me?”

The Girl Next Door
Overview

The dazzling new novel from Ruth Rendell. When the bones of two severed hands are discovered in a box, an investigation into a long buried crime of passion begins. And a group of friends, who played together as children, begin to question their past. 'For Woody, anger was cold. Cold and slow. But once it had started it mounted gradually and he could think of nothing else. He knew he couldn't stay alive while those two were alive. Instead of sleeping, he lay awake in the dark and saw those hands. Anita's narrow white hand with the long nails painted pastel pink, the man's brown hand equally shapely, the fingers slightly splayed.' Beneath the green meadows of Loughton, Essex, a dark network of tunnels has been dug. A group of children discover them. They play there. It becomes their place. Seventy years on, the world has changed. Developers have altered the rural landscape. Friends from a half-remembered world have married, died, grown sick, moved - or disappeared. Work on a new house called Warlock uncovers a long buried grisly secret. And a weary detective, more concerned with current crimes, must investigate a case of murder. In all her novels, Ruth Rendell digs deep beneath the surface to investigate the secrets of the human psyche. The interconnecting tunnels of Loughton in The Girl Next Door lead to no single destination. But the relationships formed there, and the incidents that occurred, exert a profound influence - not only on the survivors but in unearthing the true nature of the mysterious past.

The Girl Next Door is vintage Rendell and a perfect celebration of her half-century. She's so effortlessly prolific that it's easy to take her for granted; we assume that if we miss one of her books, there'll be another one along in a minute. This novel, however, reminded me of the singularity of Ruth Rendell's talent, her effortless mastery of language and her uncanny genius for mapping a criminal mind. The Times Rendell is as masterful as ever; her writing tense, brittle, and brilliant. Sunday Mirror She is the peer of Kingsley Amis and Muriel Spark. The Girl Next Door is as great a novel as Stanley and the Women or Memento Mori. a joy to read. Rendell's novels establish a sense of order that is deeply satisfying. Evening Standard Fifty years on, the girl from Essex has become the unchallenged crime queen of suburbia. Her powers of observation are as acute as ever, and she writes about old age with as much gusto as any of the subjects she has tackled in her long career. Sunday Times This book is extraordinarily courageous, a demonstration that fiction can take us where reportage dares not go. Independent

Author Information

Ruth Rendell was an exceptional crime writer, and will be remembered as a legend in her own lifetime. Her groundbreaking debut novel, From Doon With Death, was first published in 1964 and introduced the reader to her enduring and popular detective, Inspector Reginald Wexford, who went on to feature in twenty-four of her subsequent novels. With worldwide sales of approximately 20 million copies, Rendell was a regular Sunday Times bestseller. Her sixty bestselling novels include police procedurals, some of which have been successfully adapted for TV, stand-alone psychological mysteries, and a third strand of crime novels under the pseudonym Barbara Vine. Very much abreast of her times, the Wexford books in particular often engaged with social or political issues close to her heart. Rendell won numerous awards, including the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger for 1976's best crime novel with A Demon in My View, a Gold Dagger award for Live Flesh in 1986, and the Sunday Times Literary Award in 1990. In 2013 she was awarded the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger for sustained excellence in crime writing. In 1996 she was awarded the CBE and in 1997 became a Life Peer. Ruth Rendell died in May 2015. Her final novel, Dark Corners, is scheduled for publication in October 2015

The Girl Next Door

The Girl Next Door Review

THE GIRL NEXT DOOR is Brad Parks’ third and best Carter Ross mystery. Carter Ross is an investigative reporter for the Newark Eagle-Examiner, which is slowly circling the drain. Carter is a likable enough guy, upright in a Boy Scout manner, shot through with a sense of humor, decent morals, and a sense of honor. So it is that when a delivery person for the paper is struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver while on the job, Carter thinks that she deserves a bit more than an obituary column. And when he begins gathering information for his feature article, he learns that the carrier --- a woman named Nancy Marino --- might be more than a victim of an accident. The deeper he digs, the more he discovers that leads him to believe she was murdered.

"This is a character-driven novel, and Carter, who tells the tale in the first person, is a likable and funny guy. What really makes the book worth reading, though, is Park’s storytelling style, which is engaging and propelling."

Carter finds out that Nancy was one of those quiet people whose greatest fame was achieved in her death but who keeps the world turning. Nancy worked two jobs, owned her own home, and took care of her mother, eschewing a social life, marriage and children while doing so. He also learns that she was a polite but firm union representative who was staying the course during contentious negotiations with the publisher of the Eagle-Examiner. A word about that publisher. Gary Jackman, who Carter describes as not-so-esteemed, among other things, is less than popular in the newsroom, given the personnel amputations that he has initiated in his efforts to keep the paper functioning. Carter’s investigation uncovers some understandable friction in negotiations between Jackman and Nancy. And when Carter learns that Jackman actually threatened Nancy with physical harm, he is all but certain that he has discovered her killer.

This puts him on a collision course with Tina Thompson, Carter’s in-your-face editor and would-be girlfriend. Even worse, it puts him in the sights of the killer, who seems bent on doing to him what he did to Nancy. Carter gets help from Tommy, a fellow reporter whose give-and-take repartee with him conceals a genuine friendship, and receives some unlikely assistance from an Eagle-Examiner intern whose nickname implies a somewhat subordinate intelligence, when in fact the gent is probably the smartest man in the room.

Carter soon finds that not only his life but also his job (his order of priority) are in jeopardy, so he does what every intrepid reporter does: he doubles down and quickly finds himself at the wrong end of a gun. Will Carter leave this mortal coil even sooner than the Eagle-Examiner. Is this the final volume of a trilogy? Or are Carter’s exploits just beginning? You’ll have to read the book to find out, but regardless of the answer, you won’t be sorry.

One note: all you mystery aficionados will probably guess the identity of “the girl next door” well before story’s end, but you won’t care. This is a character-driven novel, and Carter, who tells the tale in the first person, is a likable and funny guy. What really makes the book worth reading, though, is Park’s storytelling style, which is engaging and propelling. His printed tour of North Jersey is first-rate, and his description of a Jersey diner is so spot-on that you can practically smell the food wafting up from between the pages. Let’s hope for another book from this author sooner rather than later.

She’s Like the Girl-Next-Door Whose Boobs Get Bigger Each Day

Kylie for Zishy reminds me of an old neighbor of mine – we’ll call her Carla, yes with a C – who I literally lived next to (girl next door!) for two years and went from a good sized D to a full-sized F-cup in that time – life was good peering out from the kitchen window in the Summer when she was poolside!

Introducing Kylie Page. She is an incredible young woman who attracts attention like no other. I felt like I was with a celebrity the way we were turning heads. This skirt is part of an actual European schoolgirl uniform that I picked up during my travels. I think the U.S. can learn a thing or two here. It is not even for a private academy. This is the type of thing girls are wearing to public school! Le sigh. You will see more of the complete outfit in the future. It includes a tie and matching shoes. But even sooner, you will see Kylie Page in the second part of this update–with a bonus video. The last shot is a taste of what is to come. God Bless.

I love this part of the set, where she’s like, “Oh, were you glancing at these pillowbags?”

and there’s a second part to this series, where things get a little more, shall we say, risque ;)
