Some clever thieves steal some priceless manuscripts from F. Scott Fitzgerald. The scripts are flipped over from many interested parties but there is reason to believe bookstore owner Bruce Cable of Camino Island, FL is currently in possession of them. Approached by an organization specializing in recovery is Mercer Mann, a young novelist who has just been let go of her teaching job. The company gives Mercer a generous offer and she agrees to go under cover to get close to Cable. I hadn’t read John Grisham in years, I got tired of the lawyer thing, but this was really different. A great beach read, taking place in a beach setting and a plot that kept me interested. Recommended!
Jessica Malloy’s absolute favorite star is Grace Kelly and because her father is her publicist, she gets to meet her at various times throughout their lives. This is historical fiction so it follows Grace’s rising star to her fall from, well, grace when she has a baby out of wedlock. It also delves into the McCarthy Era. I really enjoyed this book, it helps that I am a Gracy Kelly fan myself! It is a wonderful coming of age story where a young woman realizes that her idol is only a person.
