New Releases – Week of July 20
Our picks for the best new books of the week are filled with passion and mystery and are perfect pool-side reading.
Liftin’s debut novel just might be the most fun book of the summer—especially if you’re anything like us and enjoy sneaking a glance at Page Six or The Daily Mail (who doesn’t love juicy celebrity gossip!?). Movie star Lizzie Pepper is America’s golden girl. And when she marries super-famous, gorgeous Rob Mars, it’s a marriage made in tabloid heaven. But like many a Hollywood marriage, it eventually falls apart, putting the gossip mill in overdrive. Lizzie is determined to tell her side of the story and shares the not-so-glamorous side of life lived in the spotlight.
If you love mysteries and you love dogs, then Rosenfelt should be on your must-read list. Andy Carpenter is a reluctant lawyer whose heart belongs to his dog rescue operation, the Tara Foundation. His worlds collide, however, when Cheyenne, a recently rescued dog, is stolen and then found next to a dead body. Could the dog theft be connected to the murder? Andy wants to make sure Cheyenne is safe and his subsequent investigation leads to many questions—including doubts that Tommy Infante, the man arrested for the murder, is guilty. Andy becomes Tommy’s lawyer, and realizes that the murder is one small piece of the puzzle. But can Andy unravel the twisted, sinister plot before anyone else ends up dead?
Rachel Woodley’s entire world comes crashing down after the sudden death of her mother. Heartbroken and alone, Rachel returns to her mother’s small English cottage to clear out her belongings—and stumbles across a recent photograph pulled from a London society magazine of the father she was led to believe had died long ago. Not only is her father alive, but he’s an earl who has a family! Shocked to realize her life has been one big lie, Rachel heads to London with a new name and a plan to ruin her father and sister. But much to her surprise, her scheme hits a major snag—Rachel quite likes her sister Olivia…and she thinks she might be falling hard for Olivia’s fiancé.
