Avevo bisogno di soldi, tanti soldi. In ballo c'era la vita di mio padre. Io però non avevo un centesimo, per arrivare a fine mese facevo la cameriera. Non avevo un amore e, diciamolo, all'amore, quello con la a maiuscola, non ci credevo neanche più tanto. Le mie storie fino ad allora erano state solo fonti di guai e delusioni. Mi hanno offerto un lavoro. Recitare il ruolo della fidanzata di uomini di successo. In pratica per un mese dovevo fingere di essere la loro compagna davanti agli occhi di tutti e in cambio ognuno di loro sarebbe stato disposto a pagarmi centomila dollari. 12 mesi, 12 città, 12 uomini ricchi, famosi, inarrivabili, 12 ambienti esclusivi, 12 guardaroba diversi. Più di un milione di dollari. Il sesso, chiariamoci, non faceva parte degli accordi. Quello dipendeva e dipende sempre solo da me. L'amore neanche quello faceva parte del piano. Ma intanto quello non dipende da nessuno... Gennaio, Los Angeles, uno sceneggiatore con un corpo sexy quanto la sua mente. Febbraio, Seattle, un artista francese in cerca della sua musa. Marzo, Chicago, un ex pugile imprenditore dal cuore spaventato. Tutti uomini da sogno. Che poi sono persone. Intriganti, fragili, che hanno paure, segreti e verità nascoste. Loro hanno scelto me. Per un mese sono entrati nella mia vita. Tutti mi hanno lasciato qualcosa. E uno mi sta chiedendo di cambiare le regole del gioco... ma l'amore, tutti lo sanno, di regole non ne ha. Ho intrapreso questo viaggio perché era l'unico modo per salvare la vita di mio padre. Mi sono fidata, ho buttato il cuore oltre l'ostacolo. Ed è iniziata la favola. Il viaggio ha salvato la mia, di vita.

A Boston Globe Best Book of the Year In this breakout standalone novel of suspense in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on a Train, a woman agrees to help an old boyfriend who has been framed for murder—but begins to suspect that she is the one being manipulated. Twenty years ago she ruined his life. Now she has the chance to save it. Widower Jack Harris has resisted the dating scene ever since the shooting of his wife Molly by a fifteen-year-old boy three years ago. An early morning run along the Hudson River changes that when he spots a woman in last night’s party dress, barefoot, enjoying a champagne picnic alone, reading his favorite novel. Everything about her reminds him of what he used to have with Molly. Eager to help Jack find love again, his best friend posts a message on a popular website after he mentions the encounter. Days later, that same beautiful stranger responds and invites Jack to meet her in person at the waterfront. That’s when Jack’s world falls apart. Olivia Randall is one of New York City’s best criminal defense lawyers. When she hears that her former fiancé, Jack Harris, has been arrested for a triple homicide—and that one of the victims was connected to his wife’s murder—there is no doubt in her mind as to his innocence. The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him—and why? For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, to absolve herself of guilt from a tragic decision, a secret she has held for twenty years. But as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him?

Fans of the magical unicorn are legion, and the unicorn's appearance in pop culture shows no signs of waning. This book presents light-hearted, slightly twisted, and always funny practical uses for a unicorn. Everyone loves unicorns--what's not to love. They're beautiful, magical creatures. Author Robb Pearlman and illustrator Dave Urban join twistedly hilarious forces once again to create 101 Ways to Use a Unicorn, their follow-up to 101 Ways to Kill a Zombie. This latest book is a manual of sorts, detailing creative ways to employ the neighbourhood unicorn in everyday life. The methods range from the practical to pop cultural to slightly dark--but all are laugh-out-loud funny: Hunger Games (the unicorn is an arrow being shot out of a longbow by a teenage girl); Bookmark (the unicorn's horn is between the pages of a closed book on a nightstand); Clothesline (a clothesline is strung between the side of a house and the unicorn horn, as a housewife hangs clothes); Award Ceremony Seat Filler (the unicorn is in a tuxedo, seated between Angelina Jolie and Meryl Streep); and Jedi (the unicorn's horn is lit up like a light saber in a fight with Darth Vader). Equal parts satire and tribute to this beloved mythical animal, 101 Ways to Use a Unicorn is sure to tickle unicorn fans young and old.
