On My Nightstand - An Insignificant Life by Connie Almony

Tiffany's life as a Resident Assistant on a college campus puts her in direct contact with a wild lifestyle of sex and drugs. Her world is turned upside down when she discovers she's pregnant and faces the choice to have the baby or abort it.

Adam works with the Campus Police along with his dog, Daisy. He rescues Tiffany from a lecherous guy and thinks his job is done.

Their work keeps throwing them together, and each one struggles with secrets from their past. Can they resolve their differences or will their budding relationship come to a screeching halt?

Connie Almony is another new-to-me author. When I first started this book, I wasn't sure I'd be able to stick with it. I'm glad I did. While there's a strong spiritual thread, it definitely qualifies as "edgy," dealing with real-life issues in today's world.

The book is well written and kept me turning pages once I settled into the story. She told the story, managing the mystery and suspense with a skillful hand. Unlike some books, I didn't figure out the whodunit part until she was ready to reveal it.

I've already bought another one of this author's books. I'd give this one 4 1/2 Stars.
