This is a weekly event that highlights a book that we can't wait to be published. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I just love the cover on this book. And the idea of old Hollywood glamour. Hallie Ephron is part of a very famous family of writers, well known in Hollywood. Her parents were screenwriters, whose credits include Carousel and Daddy Long Legs. Her sisters, Nora, Amy, and Delia - yep, you know them as well. Hallie has written several best selling books and I'm eagerly anticipating this one. She is also part of the wonderful group of authors that blog at Jungle Red Writers. Here's the book I'm waiting on:
Publication Date - March 24th
Los Angeles 1986: When Deirdre Unger arrived in Beverly Hills to help her bitter, disappointed father sell his dilapidated house, she discovers his lifeless body floating face down in the swimming pool. At first, Deirdre assumes her father’s death was a tragic accident. But the longer she stays in town, the more she suspects that it is merely the third act in a story that has long been in the making.
The sudden re-surfacing of Deirdre’s childhood best friend Joelen Nichol—daughter of the legendary star Elenor “Bunny” Nichol—seems like more than a coincidence. Back in 1958, Joelen confessed to killing her movie star mother’s boyfriend. Deirdre happened to be at the Nichols house the night of the murder—which was also the night she suffered a personal tragedy of her own. Could all of these events be connected?
Her search to find answers forces Deirdre to confront a truth she has long refused to believe: beneath the slick veneer of Beverly Hills lie secrets that someone will kill to keep buried.
