by Cynthia Chow


When readers first meet Veronica “Vonny” Kwon, she is on the run, paranoid and desperate. Her anxiety has her frantically fleeing her motel room to a mall, but her plan to remain anonymous as she shops for a new identity is derailed when she is struck by a car and taken to a hospital. While her physical injuries are painful, far more devastating is the realization that the last nine years of her memories have been erased and stop at 2013.

For introverted bibliophile Yale Yee, the day is not starting off well. Not only has she learned that she is being laid off from her dream job at Eastwood Village’s Literary Narnia bookshop, her cousin Celine has just arrived at LAX for an unexpected visit and needs a pick-up. Well, more of a meet-up since Yale doesn’t own a car. It’s been twenty years since Yale last saw her glamorous wealthy cousin from Hong Kong, when Celine dashed whatever expectations Yale had of being “sisters” after the princess-like beauty whisked off to VIP Disneyland.

Something from her childhood is continuing to terrorize her today, and she knows that it must be linked to her mother having missed their regular phone calls for the past two Tuesdays. Charlotte’s friends try to ease her worries by insisting that this unreliable behavior is a characteristic of the impulsive, many-time-married, best-selling author.

Late for His Own Funeral By Elaine Viets: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow


It’s not unusual for the guest of honor to be a late arrival to his own party, unless that event happens to be a funeral. Due to nepotism and shoddy investigation by corrupt detectives, Sterling Chaney was prematurely identified as the corpse in an automobile accident even though he was off vacationing in the Bahamas. His wife Camilla was not with him either in the car or on his illicit trip, so she’s not exactly thrilled to find him still carousing his way through his funeral.
