A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

It?s 1961 and Palm Beach socialite, irresistible rascal and devoted father Jack Morgan encounters genuine danger while staging his suicide to shield his beloved daughters from scandal and disgrace. Next, meet his daughter Charlotte (Charlie), an over-indulged 23 year-old struggling to cope with the loss of her beloved father, her sister?s resulting mental breakdown and the discovery that she?s now penniless. Fortunately Raul, an admiring young attorney, offers assistance to the traumatized young woman, who can joke about her inadequacies. As terrified as she is about paying for her sister?s costly treatment and her own daily survival, Charlie soon realizes that she must learn what drove her father to kill himself. With Raul?s much needed ego-bolstering, she pursues a career that makes practical use of her lanky 5? 11? frame. Despite roadblocks and emotional upheavals, she embarks on an ocean-spanning journey that leads to a family she doesn?t know, distressing truths about her father, crimes great and small, a diabolical villain and a fireworks of surprise endings. Excerpts from reviews of "Exceeding Expectations:" ?Lisa April Smith . . . has woven an intriguingly rich tapestry of delightful well-developed characters into a perfectly balanced plot bursting with riveting mystery, crimes of the petty and the horrible sort, suspenseful twists, and romantic tension complete with love scenes that sizzle and pop.? ?Set in the varied and stunning backdrops of early 1960s Palm Beach and Manhattan high society, as well as mid-1930s to early 1940s Paris . . .? Cari L. Pedstelak: http://audacityshewrote.com ?. . . it's the authentic details of the time-periods that make it fun to read . . .? ?historical and fictitious characters work in sync as they are perfectly set in these time frames, and midst the transitory madness of WWs I and II Paris.? ? Smith's writing isn't over-blown with emotion and sappy romance; rather, it is sophisticated and subtle.? ?It?s witty, fun and sassy.? Deborah Previte: http://abookishlibrarian.blogspot.com

A propos de l'auteur:

Lisa April Smith lives with her husband, He-who-wishes-to-remain-anonymous, in Eternal Playland, Florida, a delightful spot just off I-95. Ms. Smith describes her hometown as: "a little piece of level heaven with occasional dampness, where the bugs are plentiful but respectful, and even the smallest strip mall contains at least one pizza parlor and a nail salon." Work experience in a previous life includes selling plumbing and heating, modeling, antiques, teaching ballroom dancing, designing software, and managing projects for IBM. Lately, in addition to writing page-turners, this author enjoys corresponding with fans, spending time with her family, encouraging her fiercely independent orchids and rearranging antiques. (Having run out of room, Ms. Smith no longer permits herself to add to her collection.)
