What would you give up for the people you love?
When Megan Taylor, a single mother and artist living on Cape Cod, receives the shocking news that her cancer has returned, she's faced with the most difficult decision she's ever had to make. The love she has for her daughter, Olivia, and her closest friends will be stretched and frayed.
Megan's illness reawakens her best friend, Holly Townsend's, torment of a long-held secret and years of betrayal. How does one choose between a daughter and a life-long best friend? Can the secret she has been keeping be revealed after years of lying without destroying everyone in its wake?
Meanwhile, fourteen-year-old Olivia's world is falling apart right before her eyes, and there's nothing she can do about it. She finds herself acting in ways she cannot even begin to understand. When her internal struggles turn to dangerous behavior, even the paranormal connection she shares with her mother might not be enough to save her - her life will hang in the balance.
Megan's Way is a journey of self discovery and heartfelt emotions, exploring the depth of the mother-daughter bond, and the intricacies of friendship.
Olivia's story will be continued in LOVING LIVI, Harborside Nights new adult romance series. Sign up for Melissa's newsletter and follow her on her author page here on Amazon to be notified of this release!

(Jeanette Stingley, Women's Literary Editor, Bella Online)
Megan's Way, by Melissa Foster (Outskirts Press). A wonderful, warm, and thought-provoking story with a touch of the paranormal. And it's set practically in my own backyard: Cape Cod. Who could ask for more? On the surface, it's a tale about a mother (Megan) whose cancer has tragically returned with a vengeance, and the interactions of her teenage daughter (Olivia), best friend (Holly), and several male friends (Jack, Holly's husband, and Peter, whom they've known since childhood). Many areas are touched upon: the emotional pull between mother and daughter, how one deals with death and separation, our mortality, what we give up for those we love, and the secrets and lies that are part and parcel of so many of our relationships. More than that, the author hopes that it will inspire all of us to reevaluate our lives and how we live them, to set our priorities on what's really important, and to reserve judgment of others' actions, as we can never know what they were thinking and what events influenced their decisions. This is a deep and moving book that speaks to men as well as women, and I urge you all to put it on your reading list. (Thomas Elliott, Book Review Editor, Mensa Bulletin)
