Welcome to JoJo’s Corner.
Can a man take fire in his bosom and not be burned???
The answer is explored in fiction in John Faubion’s new chiller…
John Faubion has spent many years in Asia as a missionary with his family. Since returning to the United States, John has worked as a senior software developer for a large appliance chain. He teaches an adult Sunday school class and enjoys writing and driving his 1949 Packard automobile. John lives near Indianapolis with his wife, Beth, and their daughter.
Scott and Rachel’s marriage is on the brink of disaster.
Scott, a businessman with a high-pressure job, just wants Rachel to understand him and accept his flaws.
Rachel is a lonely housewife, desperate for attention and friendship. So she decides to create a virtual friend online, unaware that Scott is doing the exact same thing.
As Rachel desperately tries to re-create a friendship with a friend who has passed, Scott becomes unfaithful and is torn between the love for his wife and the perfection of his cyber-girlfriend.
But neither realizes that there’s a much larger problem looming…
Behind both of their online creations is Melissa, a woman who is brilliant—and totally insane.
Masquerading as both friend and lover, Melissa programmed a search parameter into the virtual friend software to find her perfect man, but along the way she forgot to specify his marriage status. And Scott is her ideal match.
Now Melissa is determined to have it all—Scott, his family, and Rachel’s life.
As Melissa grows bolder and her online manipulations transition into the real world, Scott and Rachel figure out they are being played.
Now it’s a race against time as Scott and Rachel fight to save their marriage, and their lives, before it’s too late.
Absolutely one of my favorite books this year!
Friend Me is a mesmerizing, chilling story that kept me captivated until the very end.
There were so many aspects of the story that were just creepy!
In a sense, I could totally relate to Rachel and the appealing aspect of bringing back a lost loved one, being able to interact with them in a way that seems almost normal in every way…but there was a creep factor!
Scott is struggling at work and desires companionship, so he turns to a virtual friend- reassuring himself that he isn’t being unfaithful…after all, this person isn’t real!!! Or is she???
Melissa is the master-puppeteer, manipulating, calculating and cold- she will stop at nothing to have her way.
Fatal Attraction meets FaceBook in this chilling page-turner!!!
