After taking a few years off to write stand-alones (like Keep Quiet, 2014), Scottoline returns to her popular Rosato & Associates series (after Accused, 2013). When Iris Juarez, an undocumented immigrant, is found dead in her car from an apparent heart attack, lawyer Judy Carrier investigates, since Iris was the housekeeper and best friend of Judy’s cancer-stricken Aunt Barb. Judy thinks Iris’s death is suspicious, especially after finding a large stash of money squirreled away in her aunt’s house. Soon she will discover a shocking truth that will lead her investigation in an entirely different and shadowy direction.
The Cinderella Murder
Clark uses the main characters in her thriller I’ve Got You Under My Skin (2014) to keep readers guessing in this first-time collaboration with bestselling author Alafair Burke. Their mystery launches a new series centered on the fictional TV show Under Suspicion, which re-enacts cold cases. One such case is the 20-year-old “Cinderella Murder" of L.A. theater student Susan Dempsey, who missed her father’s birthday party for an audition. Her body was found the next day in Laurel Canyon Park, ten minutes from film director Frank Parker’s house. Under Suspicion producer Laurie Morgan decides to bring all the suspects together to see what new evidence may come to light.
There Was a Little Girl: The Real Story of My Mother and Me
Actress Brooke Shields follows up her memoir Down Came the Rain (2005) with an exploration of her complicated relationship with her single mother, Teri. Brooke was only 11 months old when she began her modeling career, eventually becoming the poster girl for Calvin Klein jeans and an actress. Teri was both her mother and her manager, but in private she was also an alcoholic. Only after Teri died in 2012 at the age of 79 could Brooke begin to open up. “There are lots of behind-the-scenes stories here, some funny, others heartbreaking. Overall, though, There Was a Little Girl is a story of addiction, a hold even stronger than love." (New York Post)
