Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Set in 1976 Los Angeles, this consistently absorbing drama combines a dramatic family saga with a suspenseful mystery. The author of Marital Affairs weaves (sometimes confusingly) between past and present to trace the history of the Blackers, a tighly knit Jewish clan. Father Burt is a theatrical agent; mother Lynnette, an aspiring photographer. The story focuses on the relationship between their two daughters: Suzanne, now a divorced mother of three and a successful writer of popular fiction, and Steffani, a survivor of the hippie era struggling against the severe problems caused by Gaucher's disease, a chronic, painful and progressive liver disorder. The sisters are close, and the early resentment Suzanne felt at the intrusion of Steffani's illness has been replaced by tenderness and a fierce loyalty. Now Suzanne faces a major threat to her career and to the stability of her own family. Someone has accused her of plagiarism, and in a further move, has framed her for an attempted murder. Tantalizing clues to the identity of this malefactor are periodically laced into the narrative. Although some of the characters are thinly drawn (the loathsome former husband; his witchlike sister; saintly, long-suffering Lynnette) the novel as a whole is a vivid page-turner. 25,000 first printing; optioned for TV by Grossbart Productions. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
YA-- Suzanne Winston, a famous author, finds her perfect life disintegrating when she receives a package that claims to be proof that she has plagiarized her novels. Then her name is found on a box of poisoned chocolates that was sent to a literary critic, and Suzanne searches her past to try to identify her tormentor. This is a story of family relationships, especially those of sisters: secrets shared, sibling rivalry, jealousy, and even suspicion. It's a fast-paced tale that will hold YAs' attention from beginning to surprising conclusion. --Roberta Lisker, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA

    This good and also free?

    This is the first review I have written here. I had to say how much I enjoyed this book. It kept me guessing right up to the end. Sharleen is a master storyteller. I was drawn into the lives of her characters from the very beginning. Her words paint a picture that you can almost see. I carried my nook from room to room, a miracle that I didnt trip and fall.
    Thank you Sharleen for such a great read. I hope there are many more books in your future.
