Four privileged but bored L.A. housewives each make a pact to have a year-long extramarital affair. Each others' husbands are declared off-limits and the friends agree to confide only in each other. As our ladies embark on perilous romantic paths, each woman is forced to face up to the truth of who she is and the choices that have brought her here.
Keeley Murdock's wedding to A.J. Jernigan should have been the social event of the season. But when she catches her fiance doing the deed with her maid of honor at the country club rehearsal dinner, all bets are off. And so is the wedding. Keeley pitches the hissy fit of the century, earning herself instant notoriety in the small town of Madison, Georgia.
Even worse is the financial pressure A.J.'s banking family brings to bear on Keeley's interior design business. But riding to the rescue -- in a vintage yellow Cadillac -- is the redheaded stranger who's bought a failing local bra plant. Will Mahoney hires Keeley to redo the derelict antebellum mansion he's bought. Her assignment: decorate it for the woman of his dreams -- a woman he's never met.
Only a designing woman like Keeley Murdock can find a way to clear her name and give her cheating varmint of an ex-fiance the comeuppance he so richly deserves. And only Mary Kay Andrews can deliver such delicious social satire. With Hissy Fit, she's created a story as outrageous, dishy, and true as Savannah Blues and Little Bitty Lies.
Performed by Isabel Keating
When death shatters the serenity of the exclusive moneyed enclave of Tuxedo Park, New York, Eliza Blake, co-host of KEY to America, is on the scene. While attending a lavish gala at her friends' newly renovated estate, Pentimento, Eliza's host is found dead--a grotesque suicide that is the first act in a macabre and intricately conceived plan to expose sins of the past involving some of the town's most revered citizens.
Determined to find the truth, Eliza and her KEY News colleagues discover that Pentimento holds the key. The glorious mansion is actually a giant "puzzle house," filled with ingenious clues that lead them, one by one, to the victims of a fiendish killer.
As Pentimento gives up its secrets it becomes clear that no amount of wealth or privilege will keep the residents of Tuxedo Park safe. But just when she unearths one final surprise, Eliza comes face to face with a murderer who believes that some puzzles should never be solved.
In Four Spirits, Sena Jeter Naslund weaves together the lives of blacks and whites, racists and civil rights advocates, violent repression and peaceful protest to create an epic tapestry of American social transformation. At the heart of the novel is a sheltered young white college student, raised by genteel aunts, who first witnesses and then joins the freedom movement in the racial hotbed that was Birmingham, Alabama of the 1960s. Stella's life is forever altered by her new friendships with black women and by the dangerous conflagration engulfing everyone and everything she has known.
A late-night call from her boss sends federal prosecutor Melanie Vargas to a vast Park Avenue apartment where two beautiful teenagers, students at a posh East Side girls' school, lie dead under suspicious circumstances. As determined as she is smart and ambitious, Melanie will do what it takes to get to the truth. But it's tough for a woman to focus on work when she's paired with a hot cop who has a talent for making her pulse race. Heeling pressure from the top, Melanie needs answers fast. Breaking all the rules, she goes undercover on a hunt that takes her into the darkest recesses of the city's nightlife--and into the hands of a devious murderer with no intention of getting caught.
A brief hut disastrous relationship with the gorgeous Reddy, an "investment counselor" who turns out to be a con man, causes Savannah belle BeBe Loudermilk to lose everything. All that's left is a ramshackle 1950s motor court on Tybee Island. Tybee is outside of Savannah, an eccentric beach town that calls itself a drinking village with a fishing problem. Breeze Inn is a place where BeBe wouldn't normally be caught dead, but there she is, unwilling to admit failure, fighting bankruptcy. With the help of friends, she soon has the motel spiffed up and attracting paying guests. Then there's a sighting of Reddy in Florida, and BeBe decides to go after him with a plan to carry out a sting that may be just a little bit outside the law but that, with any luck at all, will retrieve BeBe's fortune.
