Scared To Death by Debby Giusti is a very good book. This is the only book that I have ever read by Debby. I read it in like two days, it is a short novella. It is contemporary fiction, it's funny because I love historical fiction best, but I keep getting these contemporary fictions kind of dropped in my lap! LOL
If you like mystery books, you'll like this book. Kate Murphy was a scientist doing research to cure diabetes when her friend, Tina, called from out of nowhere. She had not talked to Tina in over three years after growing up as best friends. Tina had seen something and needed Kate's help to figure out what was going on. She gets to Mercy, Georgia only to find out something tragic has happened to Tina and Tina's boss, Nolan Price, has secrets he's not telling. There is some religious talk sprinkled though the book. I can't tell you more without giving anything away, but if you come across this book I would recommend reading it.
