Upper East Side Girl

(2016)
A Novella by

 
"The perfect holiday gift" according to WNYT Albany News Channel 13. Susan Novotny of the Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza described the book as "a wonderful love story."

Parker Livingstone resides at an enviable address across from Manhattan's Central Park, his job at a literary agency is going well, and he's begun work on his first novel. But the disappearance of his mother many years before - although it afforded him a grand apartment in an elegant building - continues to leave him feeling unmoored.

Then he meets Sarah, who is everything he imagines the perfect woman to be: charming, intelligent, confident, and lovely. Infatuated, Parker finds new purpose in life. But Sarah is as elusive as she is beautiful, and Parker grows increasingly frustrated that they seem to meet only by accident - in the park or in the abandoned but richly decorated old elevator in his
apartment building.

Meanwhile, his manuscript has taken on a life of its own, veering from highbrow metaphysical inquiry into romantic potboiler, and rousing the suspicions of his boss and coworker. Distracted by his quest for Sarah, Parker loses the manuscript, risks his job, and even puts his life in jeopardy. And the more he learns about the mysterious Sarah, the more he wants to
be with her . . . and the more he becomes aware of possible consequences.

Where is the line between past and present? Between "real" life and the life of the mind? Between unconventional and unhinged? Bestselling author Bernard F. Conners artfully handles these questions in Upper East Side Girl, a captivating story of love and literary intrigue in New York City.
