Seven Deadlies

New York Times–bestselling author Gigi Levangie returns with Seven Deadlies, a witty and wildly different novel-in-stories set amid the sinful reaches of Beverly Hills, narrated by a captivating, gimlet-eyed Mexican-American heroine.Perry Gonzalez is not like the other kids in her Beverly Hills high school—a full-blooded Latina on a scholarship, living in a tiny apartment with her mother, she doesn’t have much in common with the spoiled, privileged kids who are chauffeured to school every morning. But Perry is a budding young writer with her sights set on Bennington—and her seven deadly stories are her ticket to the Ivory Tower. To pay her way, Perry’s been babysitting (correction: teenage-sitting) and tutoring the neighborhood kids, and she has seen the dark side of adolescence: lust for the Judas Brothers that leads to electrocution at a private birthday party concert; wrath that inspires new and perverse family bonds; and greed, in a young Bernie Madoff acolyte who conceives of a copycat Ponzi scheme involving his own grandmother………

Gigi Levangie Grazer, the New York Times bestselling author of The Starter Wife, returns with a hilarious and spirited tale of love—both lost and found.

L.A. is no place for widows. This is what forty-four-year-old Hannah Bernal quickly discovers after the tragic death of her handsome and loving husband, John. Misery and red-rimmed eyes are little tolerated in the land of the beautiful. But life stumbles on: Hannah’s sweet three-year-old daughter, Ellie, needs to be dropped off at her overpriced preschool, while Hannah herself must get back to work in order to pay the bills on “Casa Sugar,” the charming Spanish-styled bungalow they call home.

Queen Takes King

CYNTHIA HUNSAKER Power stood shivering in her kitchen, a silk robe wrapped around her sylphlike body, and wondered whom she’d have to fuck or fire to get a diet Red Bull. Her doe eyes, accentuated by last night’s false eyelashes, blinked at the challenge. She flicked her traight black ponytail faded only slightly by age, and smirked. Cynthia’s delicate mouth was stained, her beloved Chanel Red No. 5 intensifying her pale skin. Reality check, Cynthia, she thought, when was the last time you did either?

The Starter Wife

Gracie Pollock seems to have it all. Her handsome, successful husband is president of Durango Studios, they have their usual corner table at the Ivy at the Shore, and they were dubbed called “The Power Couple in L.A. Confidential magazine. They live in a multi-million dollar mansion in Brentwood and have a beautiful daughter Jaden (named after Will Smith’s child to suck up to him and Jada). Although Gracie misses her career as a children’s book writer and sometime s questions the shallowness of their lifestyle, she’s fully absorbed in her life as “Wife of.” She never sees it coming when her husband dumps her – via Cingular Wireless no less – just shy of their ten-year anniversary (“I’ve been Cruised” – as in Tom Cruise – she says) and she finds herself living the worst fear of every Mrs. in Hollywood: Gracie has become a mere Starter Wife
