About the book

Hilary Liftin is the ghostwriter and co-writer behind numerous celebrity memoirs, ten of which have been New York Times bestsellers. In this, her debut novel, Liftin turns her ghostwriting talent into fictional brilliance with a celebrity “memoir” that is making a splash as the beach-read novel of the year. Dreamt up by Liftin one day when she was fantasizing about the celebrities she would like to ghostwrite for, Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper was born as the story of a beautiful, modestly successful actress who catapults to fame as the wife of Rob Mars, the A-list Sexiest Bachelor of the Year.

“I’ve had a million meetings in my acting career, and I had no idea that this would be the one that would change my life forever. I walked into the room, and there was Rob . . . in the flesh.”

Swept away by Rob’s romantic courtship, his luxurious life, initiated into the mile-high club, courted by every clothing designer desperate to “dress” her, Lizzie relishes having finally found true love.

lizzie pepper gift packBut what happens when the dream-come-true fantasy life goes horribly wrong?

“Now Rob knew all my secrets. What I didn’t think about at the time was that he was still keeping at least one secret from me.”

As Lizzie’s perfect Hollywood life unravels, and she is shocked to discover the “real” Rob Mars, Lizzie Pepper finally decides to tell her side of the story. She shares both the good: the million-dollar wedding, the award shows, the designer clothes (that it turns out she gets paid—a lot—to wear), the private jets to private-island vacations, and of course, the birth of their beloved twin boys; and the bad: the secrets, the lies, the locked door in their home that she is never allowed to open, the mind-body group, One Cell, that seems to control their lives, and the ultimate betrayal that leads to their shocking front-page divorce.

Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper reads like a story ripped right from tabloid headlines. Fast-paced and utterly irresistible, it’s a fascinating inside-look at the world of Hollywood celebrities.

About the book

Cape Cod summers are supposed to remain reassuringly the same, but everything falls apart when three sisters and their families come together for their annual summer vacation—and they are carrying more secrets than suitcases.

Maggie is the oldest. Responsible and orderly, she makes sure the summer house is as it always has been. But their parent’s recent divorce has forever damaged the comfort that summer brought. Jess is the middle sister. She loves her job but isn’t as passionate about her marriage. She’s not sure she can find the courage to tell Maggie—let alone her husband—what she’s done. Virgie, the youngest, has always been the career girl, but now there’s a man in her life. Her job is taking an emotional and physical toll on her and she’s counting on this vacation to erase the symptoms she’s not talking about.

When their mother, Gloria, announces she’s coming for an unscheduled visit—with her new boyfriend—no one is more surprised than their father, Arthur, who has not quite gotten over his divorce. Still, everyone manages to navigate the challenges of living grown-up lives in close quarters, until an accident reveals a new secret that brings everyone together in heartbreak…and then healing.

About the book

From “a brilliant new player in the court of royal fiction” (People) and the author of Queen’s Gambit and Watch the Lady comes a novel about two sisters who must survive life in the Tudor court after the execution of their sister Lady Jane Grey who was queen for just nine days.

Neither sister is well suited to a dangerous career at court. Flirtatious Lady Catherine, thought to be the true heir, cannot control her compulsion to love and be loved. Her sister, clever Lady Mary, has a crooked spine and a tiny stature in an age when physical perfection equates to goodness—and both girls have inherited the Tudor blood that is more curse than blessing. For either girl to marry without royal permission would be a potentially fatal political act. It is the royal portrait painter, Levina Teerlinc, who helps the girls survive these troubled times. She becomes their mentor and confidante, but when the Queen’s sister, the hot-headed Elizabeth Tudor, inherits the crown, life at court becomes increasingly treacherous for the surviving Grey sisters. Ultimately each young woman must decide how far she will go to defy her Queen, risk her life, and find the safety and love she longs for.

Open to US residents only

About the book

Trial lawyer-turned-writer Paul Levine won the John D. MacDonald fiction award, has been nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, International Thriller, Shamus, and James Thurber prizes, and has written for multiple hit television shows. Jake Lassiter, star of ten of Levine’s previous novels, is also a man of many talents: an NFL linebacker-turned-lawyer who’s a “brew and burger guy in a paté and Chardonnay world.” In Levine’s newest, Bum Rap, Lassiter faces his toughest case yet: the murder trial of Steve Solomon, half of the bickering legal duo at the center of Levine’s Solomon vs. Lord series.

Disillusioned by the justice system after his own recent murder trial, Lassiter is ready to call it quits when he gets a call from Victoria Lord. Her partner, Solomon, has been arrested for murder and he needs the hardest-hitting lawyer he can find. Used to working alone, Lassiter soon finds himself teamed up with Lord to track down the only witness who can clear Solomon’s name – before the feds or the Russian Mob find her first.

A page-turning legal thriller that marks the first literary meet-up between Jake Lassiter, Steve Solomon, and Victoria Lord, Bum Rap is as hot as the city it’s set in, Miami.

About the book

New mother Estelle Paradise has never had it easy. But she finds happiness in marriage to an attorney—the strong, capable Jack—and their baby Mia should be their pride and joy. She is at least, for Jack. Estelle has a hard time adjusting to motherhood, and baby Mia cries from colic day-in and day-out. Estelle feels ragged and exasperated, and worries about the terrible thoughts she has as she falls into a devastating post-partum depression.
As Estelle falls apart, Jack grows frustrated. As Estelle sinks deeper into despair, her relationship with Jack begins to waver, and Estelle feels terribly alone, emotionally and physically.

But one day baby Mia has vanished—along with everything in her room. Her toys, books, and blankets are all gone; even her diapers have simply disappeared. All that is left is her crib and the mobile hanging above it. Estelle, plagued by her depression and psychosis, does not even report the crime or react the way a mother “should,” and therefore is blamed for Mia’s disappearance by both Jack and the media when they get hold of the story. Estelle has no answers for anyone, except what she knows: that Mia is gone. Days later Estelle is found in her car, crashed in the bottom of a ravine in upstate New York, with a gunshot wound to the head. It is miraculous she survived, and the questions surrounding Mia’s disappearance get even more suspicious. Estelle herself cannot remember anything that happened before the accident, and starts to wonder if the speculations that she may have had something to do with Mia’s vanishing are true.

Estelle is admitted to a psychiatric facility instead of being arrested, and it is there, with the help of a specialist, that she begins to uncover her memories. A mother’s true love and devotion is tested as she gets closer and closer to the truth, all buried within the confines of her brain. And with each recovered memory the reader is faced with a new twist, another piece of the terrifying puzzle.

Readers of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will love the hair-raising mystery at the center of this novel: What on earth happened to baby Mia, and what does Estelle know? And can we trust her story?
