Also reading and signing today is Laura Bendict, who will present her new title Looking for Mr. Lonely Hearts. (Early review buzz says the book is much better than the unfortunate title would lead readers to believe.) In Lonely Hearts, three little girls tell one lie and ruin a young priests life. Years later the girls are all grown up, with broken lives and a common threat. A seductive stranger has inserted himself into their lives. Is he just a man? Or an instrument of revenge for the priest?
