TONGUE IN CHIC
No matter what the genre, Dodd's talent and gift for humor shine through. Her characters have their quirks and emotional issues, but they're readily engaging and really fun to follow as they squirm in deceptions of their own making. This is reading pleasure to the nth degree!
Trapped and unsure of his agenda, Meadow plays along. As for Devlin, he immediately recognized Meadow as the granddaughter of the famous Isabelle Benjamin, and since tormenting Bradley is high on his priority list, this is a golden opportunity. However, what neither of them realizes is that a third party is after that priceless painting -- and is willing to kill to get it. (SIGNET, Feb., 400 pp., $7.99)
