RICH AGAIN by Anna Maxted
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 1, 2010

"Plot-packed silliness filled with laughable baddies whose deaths are only slightly mourned by the reader. No wonder Maxted published this nonsense under a pseudonym in Britain."
Maxted abandons her usually thoughtful version of chick lit (A Tale of Two Sisters, 2006, etc.) for a train-wreck of a soap opera. Read full book review >
A TALE OF TWO SISTERS by Anna Maxted
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 17, 2006

"Maxted amiably delivers what's expected."

BEHAVING LIKE ADULTS by Anna Maxted
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 13, 2003

RUNNING IN HEELS by Anna Maxted
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 2001

"Maxted's people are endearing, and she has a flair for comic turns of phrase, but a meandering story dampens the fun."
Despite a wonderfully cheeky first-person narration, this second novel from British author Maxted (Getting Over It, 2000) occasionally gets lost in its own plot. Read full book review >
GETTING OVER IT by Anna Maxted
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 2000

"A friendly summer read that manages to rise above the lighter-than-air comic fluff that terminally inflates many another Bridget Jones wannabe—by now a genre all its own."
Yet another London career girl looks for fulfillment, though newcomer Maxted's narrator has enough endearing charm to make her stand out from the rest of the Bridget Jones clones. Read full book review >
