Local author ALLISON DICKSON will present her debut novel, THE OTHER MRS. MILLER. This suspenseful story introduces us to a bored, lonely suburban housewife who finds her life entangled with the family who moves in across the street and at the same time she becomes convinced someone is watching her. Her dark thoughts and fertile imagination often lead her to believe the worse about everything she spies going on in her exclusive suburban neighborhood. This original thriller is a testament to the idea that the greatest mysteries and dangers often lie close to home.
