Alice, Roxanne, and Del have been best friends since childhood - a childhood full of silly games, growing pains, and a hint of the kind of cruelty that only young girls know. Now, Alice's marriage is over, her husband having a child with another woman. Roxanne, an artist, is losing touch with everyone who cares for her - and perhaps with reality. And Del is soldiering through, but her friends see a dark cloud gathering in her eyes.

The instrument of their destruction is a single enigmatic man - Varick. Seemingly summoned from the air, the strikingly handsome Varick is a lonely woman's dream come true. But as Varick seduces the women in turn, their lives become unrecognizable to them. But where has he come from? And what does he want? His secret lies buried in their shared past. One simple, childish act has brought them, all these years later, to a place where not only their lives are at risk, but so are their souls. For once upon a time, the three friends agreed to tell a lie - one that ruined the life of a young priest. Defrocked, destitute, and ruined, he hoped with the whole of his shattered heart that he would get revenge. And in that hope he shook hands with the one who promised it. The devil himself. Varick. And now they all must live with the consequences. . . .

Dark and provocative, Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts will keep readers in its terrifying grip long after the final, chilling page is turned. Download and start listening now!

    " Plenty of dark, messy psychological stuff going on here. I started it thinking I wouldn't finish it, but got kind of mesmerized, wanting to know how it all turned out in the end. "

    " i really liked this book...all the twists and turns, wonderful. don't let the time it took me to read this make you think it wasn't good or a page turner! it most certainly was....there was too much life going on for me for a while is the only reason it took so long to finish. i would highly recommend this book...thanks laura, you've done it again! great read!

    " I picked this up randomly at the library, being in the mood for something suspenseful and frivolous. It was well written, but a little genre-less. Unclear whether it was horror or fantasy or thriller or what. Entertaining enough, but read kind of like a movie script in its lack of characterization or other novel-like qualities. "

    " Blech! I managed to choke down 100 pages and finally just gave up. I didn't care for a single character (and there were too many anyway). I thought it would be suspenseful, but it was just downright weird and it skipped around so much I couldn't even seem to follow the storyline. "
