Liz and Lisa introduce us to a book giveaway

We always love having Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke at CLC. Since they've written many great novels, we've had them visit for each one. So we decided to do something different in lieu of an interview this time around. Remember The Newlywed Game? Well, since Liz and Lisa have been best friends for 32 years, we decided to play a version of that here to see how well they know each other. And it looks like they did pretty well with their answers! They even have a few things in common.

Liz and Lisa's latest thriller, The Two Lila Bennetts, publishes next week. Melissa A couldn't put this one down! (See her review.) Liz and Lisa have one audio version for a lucky reader (or listener). If you don't read audio books, Goodreads has an e-book giveaway going through July 22nd. (There are 100 up for grabs!)

Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke are the authors of five novels, including Girls' Night Out and the Amazon Charts bestselling novel, The Good Widow. Liz and Lisa have been best friends for 30 years. They have also published three women's fiction novels with Simon & Schuster/Atria Books. Your Perfect Life is a hilarious and heartwarming story of two childhood best friends who switch bodies at their twenty-year high school reunion. The Status of All Things, is a cautionary tale of a woman who realizes she can change the course of her entire life by what she writes in her Facebook status. And The Year We Turned Forty follows three women who get the chance to relive the year they turned forty, a year they each made decisions that altered the course of their lives. (Bio adapted from Liz and Lisa's website.)

Lila Bennett’s bad choices have finally caught up with her. And one of those decisions has split her life in two. Literally.

In one life, she’s taken hostage by someone who appears to be a stranger but knows too much. As she’s trapped in a concrete cell, her kidnapper forces her to face what she’s done or be killed. In an alternate life, she eludes her captor but is hunted by someone who is dismantling her happiness, exposing one secret at a time.

Lila’s decorated career as a criminal defense attorney, her marriage, and her life are on the line. She must make a list of those she’s wronged—both in and out of the courtroom—to determine who is out to get her before it’s too late. But even if she can pinpoint her assailant, will she survive? And if she does, which parts of her life are worth saving, and which parts must die? Because one thing’s for certain—life as Lila Bennett knew it is over.

I think about this question allllll the time. Like on Tuesday... if I hadn't chosen to take my daughter to the pool a little early, I wouldn't have hit a deer and wrecked my car like I did.... :-/
I cannot wait to read this book!

I've known my best friend for 30 years and believe I know her very well. One thing I'm certain of is that I can always count on her.

I probably wouldn't have all these kids, grandkids and great grandkids if I'd made a few different choices. Happy to have it this way.
