In fact, the latest spat between Deborah, a soap opera writer in New York, and Sharon, a wedding planner in Boca Raton, has lasted two years. But when their mother has a heart attack, the sisters rally around her and promise to behave themselves. The only glitch in their peace pact is Mom's doctor.

Deborah thinks her soap opera savvy can help the police find the killer, but a second murder brings the siblings even closer to danger. Now, joining forces may be their one chance to stay alive. And in the process, they may just learn to love and accept each other, not to mention find men of their own to love.  Good+

In Hollywood, no vicious deed goes unpunished, not if the four have anything to say about it at least, and there is no reason why they shouldn't see the movie through on their own - especially if it means settling a few old scores along the way...  Very Good

Synopsis: Is it possible to find that perfect once-in-a-lifetime love twice? Gert Healy thought she was finished with dating. She thought she'd never again have to worry about what to wear and what to say and whether she was pretty enough. She thought that she'd be picking out strollers and booties for the children she and her husband were planning to have. Instead, she's mourning his loss and coming to terms with being a widow at twenty-nine. It's been over a year now, and her friends - with the best of intentions, really - have convinced her its time to get back into the swing of things (even though looking for love is the last thing she wants to do). Although they've developed many a dating rule between them, now that Gert's part of their Single-girl crew, she's beginning to realise they don't know the first thing about men. Of course, Gert doesn't know the first thing about dating, since she married her college sweetheart, so maybe joining forces will work out after all. But does Gert have it in her to fight her way through the leather-jacketed and mini-skirted crowds in search of a second miracle? It's back to square one on everything. Well, actually she's done it all before. Square two, then.  Good

And there's nothing like the reading of a will to bring people out of the woodwork, especially relatives you never knew you had... Such as the grieving widow and her sexpot twin sister...and a hunky man Angel is thrilled to learn is not any kind of cousin at all. He's C.J. Jones, the legendary lawyer determined to keep her quiet about her late, not-so-great deadbeat dad's secret life. Angel knows he'll try to woo her into submission, but how can she resist? The setting: Tranquility House, a remote retreat containing plenty of private rooms and romantic hideaways. But how far will C.J. go to get what he wants? And, for that matter, how far will Angel?  Very Good

 Mass Market Paperback Some reader curve to spine. Chip to top right corner of cover. Weight: 170g. Synopsis: Jennifer Bell used to travel the planet with her boyfriend, fighting the good fight for mother Earth. But after the breakup (not a good fight), Jen moved back to London to work for another mother: her own. Harriet Bell founded Green Futures, a consulting firm, after splitting up with Jenís big-shot father, who runs a rival (and Harriet thinks corrupt) company. But Harriet canít expose his crimes without proof. And she wants Jen to find some. Since Jen hasnít seen her dad in more than fifteen years, itís a snap to infiltrate his company... under an assumed name, of course. Soon sheís worming her way into the good graces of the companyís managers to find evidence of wrongdoing. What she discovers is that her fatherís world is a whole lot different from her own - filled with Palm Pilots, MBAs, martini lunches, designer suits, and Daniel Peterson, a guy who puts the gorge in gorgeous. Suddenly Jen is torn between Birkenstocks and Jimmy Choos, tree-hugging and air-kissing. Could it be that her Big Bad Dad isnít the monster her mom made him out to be? Or is Jen simply being seduced by the power of hard deals, hot nights, and wads of cash? Only time will tell - preferably from a Cartier watch on the wrist of Daniel Peterson...  Good+

Her husband, Alan, seems to have fallen into a midlife depression, while Walter, her closest professional ally, is nursing a broken heart. It is at Walter's restaurant that the visiting governor of New Mexico tastes Greenie's coconut cake and decides to woo her away from the city to be his chef.
