Susan Isaacs recommends
No Body (1986)
(Jenny Cain, book 3)
Nancy Pickard
"A delightful whodunnit... I enjoyed it immensely."
Fearless (1993)
Rafael Yglesias
"More than 'a good read'... a tour de force, touching and harrowing at the same time."
Everywhere That Mary Went (1993)
(Rosato and Associates, book 1)
Lisa Scottoline
"What fun! Lisa Scottoline brings something new to the lawyer-mystery -- a brilliant sense of humor. Grabs you with its intelligence, wit and energy and doesn't let go."
One True Thing (1994)
Anna Quindlen
"There is not a single false word in One True Thing. What a brave and beautifully written novel!"
Thrown-Away Child (1996)
(Neil Hockaday)
Thomas Adcock
"This is Adcock at his best - Intelligent, fiery, sharp-witted and perceptive."
The Black Madonna (2001)
Louisa Ermelino
"A big-hearted, wise and wonderfully observed novel about mothers and sons. Louisa Ermelino gives the reader all the life and glorious color of New York's Little Italy."
The Cold Blue Blood (2001)
(Berger and Mitry, book 1)
David Handler
"The beginning of what looks to be a swell series."
London Is the Best City in America (2006)
Laura Dave
"A delicious comedy of manners and a smart examination of the heart and its desires. What a sparkling debut!"
As Dead as It Gets (2006)
(Maggie Mars, book 1)
Cady Kalian
"As Dead as It Gets is a droll and delightful mystery about the real Hollywood, the screenwriters' Hollywood, a place often short on drollery and delight."
Following Polly (2010)
Karen Bergreen
"Following Polly sparkles. It's got wit and energy, and fabulous characters to love (and loathe)."
Unreasonable Doubts (2018)
Reyna Marder Gentin
"Can head and heart possibly make the scales of Justice balance, or must one prevail? Reyna Gentin's first novel is not only intelligent, but deeply moving. She knows the law and she knows her characters. Well done!"
Love Sold Separately (2020)
Ellen Meister
"Love Sold Separately is an absolute delight. Author Ellen Meister has created a complex and comic main character who pitches cool fashion (as well as some hideous designs) on a cable TV shopping network...all the while maintaining her smarts and satirical eye. What fun!"
