Would you like the prize behind door number one, door number two or door number three? That is how the game “Let’s Make a Deal” goes.

Moving my daughter into her new home, it became apparent to me that 1.) I am just as much a directional dyslexic indoors as outdoors and 2.) There are too many doors in her house for me to choose the right one.

Moving clothing from room to room and the belongings of six people is no small task, and with multiple doors to choose from, it was a sure bet that whichever door I chose would end up being a closet or bathroom and not the bedroom I was looking for at all. I accidentally walked into the closet more than once on moving day.

Let’s just say that if I had to choose door number one, door number two or door number three, I would not be winning the grand prize! There is one game that will make me a winner, and that is the game of choosing the right book from my local branch of JCPL! Read on for some really great, new adult fiction!
