In Tagged, veteran author Eric Walters creates a fast-paced mystery about who might be spray painting graffiti murals around town. Is it art or vandalism? And could the guerrilla artist be a close friend? In Meg Tilly’s novel A Taste of Heaven, secrets threaten to ruin a friendship. Why won’t Alyssa talk about her family? Why has she never invited her best friend over? And how big is the price of celebrity? Tilly, herself an award-winning actress who famously turned her back on Hollywood, is well-acquainted with the cost of fame and secrecy. But it’s no secret that Walters and Tilly are masters at weaving great stories loaded with believable characters—and keeping audiences well entertained.
