JOIN US MONDAY, MARCH 20 AT 7 P.M. FOR A BOOK READING, DISCUSSION AND SIGNING BY LUKE P. NARLEE OF HIS DEBUT NOVEL, GUEST BED.
In this highly engaging debut novel, Luke P. Narlee intricately weaves romance, mystery, and psychological suspense as a marriage in trouble opens the door to temptation and turmoil.
Ron’s day is off to a bad start. Blinded by frustration after another argument with his wife, and heartbroken that his marriage may be over, he accidentally crashes his car on his way to work. Dazed, he takes the train the rest of the way, where he is quickly delighted by the presence of another rider, Courtney, whose smoldering smile makes him remember what it feels like to be wanted.
What seems like a new friendship quickly turns into temptation, leaving Ron torn with internal conflict and guilt. But when his new friend starts to seem a little off, he begins to question her motives. As one seemingly harmless favor leads to another, Ron soon finds himself wondering if Courtney really is who she says she is, or if she’s actually part of an elaborate setup.
Steep with tension, this roller coaster of emotions takes the reader behind closed doors to explore the conundrum of love, life, and the unexpected.
Luke P. Narlee is an American author from Maryland. He grew up in a small town in New Hampshire, where he loved to watch movies, play in the woods, and spend time with his friends and family. But his favorite hobby was writing. In 2012, Luke finally decided to write with the purpose of becoming a published author. He spent four years working on a new book; the first of a planned dystopian trilogy about the importance of human connection, titled "The Appointment." In 2016, Luke took a break from The Appointment, and began working on Guest Bed instead, a much more personal story about the daily struggles of adulthood, particularly marriage and raising children, while also serving as an entertaining mystery, full of suspense, twists and romance. In October of 2016, Guest Bed was published, and became what is now Luke’s debut novel. When writing Guest Bed, Luke wanted to realistically capture the frustrations of being an adult, working too much, and trying to stay compatible with your spouse year after year. Luke hopes that Guest Bed will motivate readers to come to terms with some of their own frustrations, spark conversations, and help people feel a little less alone in the process.
