A lovely bit of news: In a starred, boxed review, Publisher’s Weekly calls IF YOU WERE HERE “outstanding.” “Burke’s accuracy in legal and judicial technicalities is impressive although most readers will find simpler pleasures in her sharp writing, well-constructed plot, and dimensional characters.” The full review is here.
I’ve also been in blurb heaven recently, thanks to some very kind words from two of my favorite authors:
“IF YOU WERE HERE is a winner: a suspenseful, tightly plotted story of friendship, lies, and betrayal. Alafair Burke writes deftly about secrets buried close to home. An accomplished novel by an assured author.” — Meg Gardiner
“After finishing IF YOU WERE HERE, I don’t feel I can trust anyone ever again, except Alafair Burke to provide a cracking good read.” –Linwood Barclay
