The Chanel Caper


Blake Weston is a smart, savvy, no BS, 56-year-old Nora Ephron-like New Yorker. Her DH, Ralph Marino, is a très James Bond ex-cop & head of security for a huge media company. As the book opens, Ralph is about to hit the Big Six O and he's not happy about it. Not that Blake is exactly thrilled about the prospect, either. Especially now that she thinks Ralph might be cheating on her with a glam war reporter with a humongo pair of 36 Double Ds—AND Blake and Ralph are forced to work together to solve a murder. The Chanel Caper addresses two of the most important questions of our time: 1) Is sixty the new forty? 2) Is there sex after marriage?

The Gatsby Game


When Nicky Conway meets Fitzgerald-quoting Alistair at a Princeton mixer, she falls for his retro, Jazz-Age charm. But she discovers he’s a con man obsessed with his own “Daisy”—British actress Delia Kent. After Alistair manipulates Nicky into nannying for Delia’s daughter on the set of a Hollywood film, Delia finds Alistair dead in her motel room. Local police can’t decide if it’s accident, suicide—or murder, in which case, Nicky is the prime suspect.

In The Gatsby Game, Anne R. Allen blends a perfect combination of witty, sharp narration, a plot that won't let the reader go, and nuanced characters that evoke our caring. A genre novel that artfully transcends its genre.

Very interesting characters with intertwining lives. I enjoyed the mystery and the fast moving story lines. An up-to-date dialogue added to the enjoyment.
