A Great New Book to Read!

I don't usually promote books or authors here but I thought I would make an exception for my friend Lian Dolan.  Her second book, Elizabeth the First Wife, just came out and it is hilarious.  She has the best sense of humor and the book is beyond entertaining.  Here is a clip from Amazon just to give you the flavor:

Elizabeth Lancaster, an English professor at Pasadena City College, finds her perfectly dull but perfectly orchestrated life upended one summer by three men: her movie-star ex-husband, a charming political operative, and William Shakespeare. Until now, she’d been content living in the shadow of her high-profile and highly accomplished family. Then her college boyfriend and one-time husband of seventeen months, A-list action star FX Fahey, shows up with a job offer that she can’t resist, and Elizabeth’s life suddenly gets a whole lot more interesting. She’s off to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for the summer to make sure FX doesn’t humiliate himself in an avant-garde production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

As she did so skillfully with her first novel, Helen of Pasadena, which spent more than a year on the Los Angeles Times bestseller list, Lian Dolan spins a lively, smart, and very funny tale of a woman reinventing her life in unexpected ways.

Her first book, Helen of Pasadena, was fabulous and this one is no different.  Lian lives in Pasadena and makes all kinds of references to her West Coast life.  But I think most people will enjoy her books.  Give them a try and let me know what you think!
