Sixty-five million years ago, Martian astronomers discovered that the third planet from the sun was in the direct path of a giant asteroid, and a collision would occur in less than one Earth year. Such a rare event was of great interest to Martian scientists. To record the impact and its aftermath, the Martians traveled to Earth and placed data collection instrumentation at various locations.
The mission was successful but marred when one of the space travelers was attacked and devoured by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. A small black monitor worn by each of the Martians signaled to the others the sudden death of their crewmate. Shortly afterward, the T-Rex died in a massive landslide.
A team of paleontologists working in the badlands of Montana discovered the 65 million-year-old fossil of the T-Rex, along with the bones of its last meal and the Martian's black box. The fear of extraterrestrial life resulted in a coverup directed by the president, and a search for the black box by domestic and foreign agents ensued.
Nikki Grey's idea of living dangerously is not wearing a seatbelt, yet calamity always seems to find her.
Friends Who Move Couches is a laugh-out-loud story about life, friendship, quieting your inner critic, and surviving rejection.
Married to a workaholic, mothering three rebellious kids, and feuding with neighborhood friends, Nikki Grey forgets her problems one afternoon by smoking marijuana. That blunder ignites a lifelong yet dormant medical condition, and she loses her driver's license. Suddenly stranded in her home, she's forced to stare out the window at the women who have ostracized her.
Her true friends encourage her to concentrate on her health, but Nikki is her own nemesis. She embarks on a scheme to win back neighborhood friends but instead becomes the butt of their jokes. Her ache to mend her broken relationships escalates.
Not until her two-timing husband asks her a question that catapults her frivolous suburban life into a tailspin, is she forced to stop reaching for others and stand on her own.
If you like novels like Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty, you'll love Nikki Grey's hilarious journey in Friends Who Move Couches.
