SCOT ON THE ROCKS
Scot on the Rocks is a quick and entertaining read. The main character's
theatrical, high-energy personality
comes through loud and clear, but it is Janowitz's secondary characters that develop and grow smoothly, rounding out the plot. Readers will enjoy the scheming, shopping and well-used irony that make up this New York tale.
Lawyer Brooke Miller's world falls to pieces when her gorgeous Scottish boyfriend breaks up with her and proposes to another woman. Desperate to get him back in time to maintain her dignity at an ex-boyfriend's Hollywood wedding, she requires above-and-beyond help from her best friend and senior co-worker Jack. In the midst of her crazy scheme, she realizes she
is pursuing the wrong man, but is it already too little too late? (Red Dress Ink, Apr., 296 pp., $13.95)
