The Whole World, Emily Winslow
1 The Whole World Emily Winslow
Delacorte 2010 0385342888 / 9780385342889 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover New in New dust jacket Signed by Author
New book in new dust jacket. Dust jacket edges are rubbed. Book is signed and dated by author. Name has been scribbled out. ; East Coast native Polly and Californian Liv, both studying at Cambridge, quickly bond over their mutual excitement with their study-abroad experience. Befriended by handsome British grad student Nick, the pair become even closer after taking a part-time job helping blind professor Gretchen assemble old photographs that will help her figure out the answers to questions she has about her mother. Polly, Liv, and Nick all have fraught relationships with their parents and harbor nasty secrets from the past; then, when Nick makes his affections for Polly known, Liv is consumed with jealousy. After Nick goes missing, Liv and Polly are questioned by the police. Ugly information surfaces, and their friendship takes a dark turn. In her first novel, which is told from five different perspectives, including that of a policeman, Winslow excels at describing the unique architecture and ambience of Cambridge while gradually creating a chilling, psychologically creepy atmosphere. Although the plotting becomes increasingly implausible, readers will be inclined to keep turning the pages, trying to figure out whether the neurotic lead characters are seriously disturbed or just run-of-the-mill drama queens. --Joanne Wilkinson. ; Signed by Author 50138

2 Too Rich and Too Thin, Not an an Autobiography DeShong, Barbara
Echelon Press 2009 1590806417 / 9781590806418 Paperback New 
0.9 x 8 x 5 Inches; Pack your bags for Texas and prepare to meet the strangest family since that little Chainsaw Massacre incident.
Psychologist Jessica LeFave will be your guide, but be forewarned, Dr. LeFave isn t your average shrink, and though her wisecracking lawyer buddy, will try to keep Jessica out of trouble, he might not be able to save you, or himself.
Your journey opens when Jessica is summoned to profile the killer who drove a spike through the heart of the notorious Bernice Jackson. Jessica is more than a little excited. Not because Bernice Jackson is dead, but because Bernice who'd soared to fame and wealth by shamelessly re-writing treasured historical events into wildly successful soft-porn novels and movies was a psychiatry patient of her husband's at the time of his death.
You see, Jessica is convinced her husband was murdered to bury a secret revealed in therapy. Since watching him dragged from the bottom of Lake Austin a Hilton receipt and another woman s wedding rings in his pocket Jessica has been a little crazy, obsessing over his files, even stalking patients with dodgy reputations.
The police dismiss her claims, leaving Jessica on her own to land your Texas tour smack in the middle of the bizarre movie-making family starring a doped up basket case son, a daughter on a death wish eating binge, and the ghost of Bernice Jackson who'd pushed her obsession with seeing herself as young and beautiful beyond any psychotic dream. 50139
