REAL HOUSEWIFE OF NEW JERSEY
Yes, I live in New Jersey. I’m not from here, but I’ve lived here long enough to have some Jersey Girl tendencies. (For the record, I am perfectly capable of pumping my own gas.) Jersey Girls are tough. Tougher than almost anywhere. Not physically tough, or rugged, but you don’t want to mess with them.
And none of those ladies on The Real Housewives of New Jersey are anything like my friends.
None of us live in houses that big. I don’t begrudge anyone a big house. Anyone can spend their money on what they want.
I’ve been in a book club for more than ten years and in that time there has been far less drama then in one episode of RHofNJ.
We don’t have alliances or change friends like we do our underwear. You watch a series of reunion shows and the ladies who hated each other last year and bff’s this year. Next year who knows.
Nope, for us it’s been the same core 4 people. We have different political views and different views on raising our children. Despite this we all get along.
Do you have a core of friends that have always been there?

You just can't hide from the past...
Mallory Sage lives in a small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past life as an agent for Homeland Security.
Former partner and lover, Trey McCrane, comes back into Mallory's life. He believes they made a great team once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don't have much choice. Paul Stanley, a twisted killer and their old nemesis, is back.
Framed for a bombing and drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running out.
