Two New Books

I’ll have two new books in stores before you know it.

THE WIFE, out January 23 in the US, is about a wife torn between defending her husband and saving herself after two women level troubling accusations against her husband.  As you read, you might be reminded of other wives thrown under the harsh glare of a spotlight because of their husband’s scandals, but Angela Powell has an especially powerful motive to protect her husband, Jason, a brilliant economist and cultural lightning rod.  For Angela, marriage was a chance to start a new life.  Her loyalty threatens to unearth a tragic past that she has tried desperately to bury.

In the meantime, EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE, the fourth book in the Under Suspicion series, will be out November 7.  Sharing this series with Queen of Suspense Mary Higgins Clark has been an honor and a blast as a writer, and this book is especially close to my heart.  Laurie Moran and her Under Suspicion team are investigating the unsolved Met Gala murder—in which a wealthy widow was pushed to her death from Met’s rooftop during its star-studded party of the year.  As some of you know, my husband works at the Met, so you might find a fun Easter egg or two waiting on the pages.

I hope you’ll allow both Angela and Laurie to keep you company this fall and winter.  You can learn more about the books, and pre-order, here (The Wife) and here (Every Breath You Take).
