Image of Jack With A Twist (Red Dress Ink Novels)

Janowitz has written a quirky first-
person account about two people
trying to have it all while making everyone else happy, which may
leave them with nothing in the end --
not even each other. Her characters
are just over the top enough to be charming, yet able to deal with the nitty-gritty details of real life. Loony family dynamics and a quick inner monologue move the story along
swiftly, and the epilogue takes
readers right past the wedding day
to an ending that will put a smile on each face.

A girl's first big case is supposed to be a big break -- not a deal breaker. But a deal breaker is nearly what Brooke gets when the opposing counsel turns out to be her fiance. They start playing down and dirty in the courtroom while making nice in their personal lives and trying to plan a wedding, avoid the media and keep all the members of their clashing families happy.

What will happen when Brooke buckles under the pressure and makes decisions that will affect the rest of their lives? (Red Dress Ink, Jul., 384 pp., $13.95)
