Meet avant garde literary star, Eve Babitz. No one wrote about Hollywood like Eve and that's because no one lived like her. This is a dishy splashy biography that started out as a story in Vanity Fair. Lili Anolik becomes obsessed with finding Eve and getting to know everything she could about her. The result is discovering an amazing woman who is the ultimate insider in LA, a true bohemian who enjoyed the power of her beauty, slept with a lot of men before they were famous (Harrison Ford, Jim Morrison, Steve Martin to name a few), and oh yeah wrote some incredible books that are resonating with young women right now. If you want to know who Eve is, here's your book. 4 out of 5 stars

Historical fiction fans will love this book. Set in the late 30's and into WWII, this family drama about 2 sisters (Ruth and Millie) is honest and poignant about the bond (or the lack) of between sisters. Rich in historical detail and beautifully written, this story explores family dynamics, loyalties and the tension that comes with secrets. Lynda also wrote "The Two-Family House". 4 stars

This is the authors 2nd book featuring a homicide cop (Buddy Lock) in New York City. We haven't read the first one but this one is terrific. A Long Island fishing crew makes a horrific catch: the bodies of an Asian couple. Homicide cop Buddy Lock knows this is not some an accident. Then people start disappearing in Chinatown and from there this is a story of power and corruption told in a page turning suspenseful way. If you are a fan of Lucas Davenport (John Sandford), Harry Bosch (Michael Connelly) or Cork O'Conner (William Kent Krueger) then we have a new favorite detective for you!

The Dakota Winters is so sweet, funny and touching we were sad when we were done reading. Anton Winters, the narrator, is a 20 something in the 1980's and his voice reminded us of Holden Caulfield. If you love the 80's, anything with New York City as a character, enjoy bites of pop culture and love John Lennon, this charming story is for you. It reads like a faux memoir and you want this novel to be true so badly. 5 out of 5 stars.
