BOOK REVIEW

IN A HEARTBEAT by Elizabeth Adler
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 5, 2000

"Adler (All or Nothing, 1999, etc.) makes this tangled plot seem plausible without even breaking a sweat. And, as always, her direct, razor-sharp style doesn't waste a word—or anybody's time."

BOOK REVIEW

IT ALL BEGAN IN MONTE CARLO by Elizabeth Adler
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 1, 2010

"Although her acerbic prose is a welcome diversion, Adler's tell-don't-show moralizing may have unintended consequences: Readers might sympathize more with Kitty than with her smugly entitled jet-setter nemeses."
Another frothy adventure in the South of France, Adler's follow-up to There's Something About St. Tropez (2009). Read full book review >
