Destiny brings them together but will fate--and the tides of history--keep them apart? Kim Hendricks is a legendary American war reporter and famous novelist, a man's man and a woman's man--bold, exuberant, confident and intensely romantic. He is dashing, handsome and celebrated but reckless and dangerously flawed. Nicole Redon is French, a fashion designer who invents the clothes, the perfume and the style that liberate an entire generation of women. She is adored by rich and titled men, admired by other women. She is beautiful, charming, lonely, haunted by a desperate secret. Kim confronts a devastating tragedy. Nicole guards a desperate secret. They meet by chance and pursue their star-crossed romance in New York and Paris, on safari in Africa, in glamorous resorts on the French Riviera and the savage blood-drenched front lines of two world wars. They are a larger-than-life couple who live and love in a radical new age of jazz and cubism, moving pictures and the stock market, Picasso and Garbo, Hemingway and Fitzgerald. They meet and embark on a romance so fierce and so blinding it threatens to overwhelm them both. Their insistence on living their lives so boldly and so freely makes them the last romantics, the first contemporaries. THE LAST ROMANTICS is an epic love story, sweeping yet intimate, set in Paris during the glittering, champagne-fizzed Jazz Age of the 1920's. "Delightful, de-lovely and de-vine!"

Nora Ephron meets James Bond. Or is it the other way around? Blake Westin is a smart, savvy, no BS New Yorker. Her darling (damn!) husband, Ralph Marino, is a très James Bond ex-cop and head of security for a large international corporation. When Blake buys a faux Chanel bag from a sidewalk vendor, her problems start—but don’t end—with a mugging. They escalate to an encounter with a gun-toting jailbird, an iPhone obsessed Afghan war lord, a diamond-bedecked janitor, and a showdown with a beautiful woman who might—or might not—be deadly. Meanwhile, Ralph is about to hit the Big Six O and he’s not happy about it. Neither is Blake. Especially now that she suspects Ralph might be cheating on her. Again. At this tense time in their relationship, Blake and Ralph are forced by Ralph’s über-neurotic billionaire boss to work together to solve a murder, break up an international counterfeiting ring—and save Ralph’s job. "Does it sound odd to call a murder mystery light and delightful? Ruth Harris gives us quotable quotes one after another making this reader laugh out loud over and over again. I truly have nothing negative to say about this novel. Reading this novel was an exercise in self-indulgence best done with your favorite glass of something rare or much loved snack infrequently eaten (I did both). If you like light and funny cozy mysteries with wonderful heart, pick this one up today." —RabidReadersReviews A note to readers from Ruth—I’ve been looking forward to writing about a long-term marriage. In The Chanel Caper, Blake and Ralph have been through it all—the break ups and makeups, the squabbles, the spats and the stand-offs. Even so, after twenty-six years of marriage (and driving each other crazy), they are still holding hands in the movies. And they still have the hots for each other! Add to the mix the fact that I’m a news junkie and love to write about the social and cultural background of the period during which a book is set. The Chanel Caper takes place in the fall of 2008 when the global financial system faced collapse. From Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff to bankers in five thousand dollar suits flying their private jets to Washington to scrounge for bail outs, the financial crisis of 2008 was a richly ironic background for The Chanel Caper. Other characters in the story were inspired by headlines, news stories and current events: • a washed-up Martha Steward wannabe trying to make a come back with the help of a red balconette bra • a one-eyed, one-legged Afghan warlord who doesn’t speak a word of English • an über neurotic, germ-ophobic billionaire freaking out as the stock market plummets and his net worth goes down—and down • a flack-jacket-wearing gung-ho war zone reporter with a humongo pair of 36 DoubleD's • NYC’s ubiquitous sidewalk vendors of faux designer label bags, sunglasses and scarves • the city’s vast selection of ethnic restaurants and foods • news reports about the deadly consequences of counterfeit drugs • the rise of the Chinese economy and the glam and glittering city of Shanghai • trendy gurus and hot self-help fads Add in Bollywood movies, the world's best shade of red lipstick + one drop-dead fantastic way to deal with a cheating husband and you'll know why I had a ball writing The Chanel Caper. I hope you have a ball reading it!

Paris. The name alone conjures images of chestnut-lined boulevards, sidewalk cafés, breathtaking façades around every corner--in short, an exquisite romanticism that has captured the American imagination for as long as there have been Americans. In 1995, Adam Gopnik, his wife, and their infant son left the familiar comforts and hassles of New York City for the urbane glamour of the City of Light. Gopnik is a longtime New Yorker writer, and the magazine has sent its writers to Paris for decades--but his was above all a personal pilgrimage to the place that had for so long been the undisputed capital of everything cultural and beautiful. It was also the opportunity to raise a child who would know what it was to romp in the Luxembourg Gardens, to enjoy a croque monsieur in a Left Bank café--a child (and perhaps a father, too) who would have a grasp of that Parisian sense of style we Americans find so elusive. So, in the grand tradition of the American abroad, Gopnik walked the paths of the Tuileries, enjoyed philosophical discussions at his local bistro, wrote as violet twilight fell on the arrondissements. Of course, as readers of Gopnik's beloved and award-winning "Paris Journals" in The New Yorker know, there was also the matter of raising a child and carrying on with day-to-day, not-so-fabled life. Evenings with French intellectuals preceded middle-of-the-night baby feedings; afternoons were filled with trips to the Musée d'Orsay and pinball games; weekday leftovers were eaten while three-star chefs debated a "culinary crisis." As Gopnik describes in this funny and tender book, the dual processes of navigating a foreign city and becoming a parent are not completely dissimilar journeys--both hold new routines, new languages, a new set of rules by which everyday life is lived. With singular wit and insight, Gopnik weaves the magical with the mundane in a wholly delightful, often hilarious look at what it was to be an American family man in Paris at the end of the twentieth century. "We went to Paris for a sentimental reeducation-I did anyway-even though the sentiments we were instructed in were not the ones we were expecting to learn, which I believe is why they call it an education."

"A top-notch walking tour of Paris. . . . The author's encyclopedic knowledge of the city and its artists grants him a mystical gift of access: doors left ajar and carriage gates left open foster his search for the city's magical story. Anyone who loves Paris will adore this joyful book. Readers visiting the city are advised to take it with them to discover countless new experiences." —Kirkus Reviews (starred)A unique combination of memoir, history, and travelogue, this is author David Downie's irreverent quest to uncover why Paris is the world's most romantic city—and has been for over 150 years. Abounding in secluded, atmospheric parks, artists' studios, cafes, restaurants and streets little changed since the 1800s, Paris exudes romance. The art and architecture, the cityscape, riverbanks, and the unparalleled quality of daily life are part of the equation. But the city's allure derives equally from hidden sources: querulous inhabitants, a bizarre culture of heroic negativity, and a rich historical past supplying enigmas, pleasures and challenges. Rarely do visitors suspect the glamor and chic and the carefree atmosphere of the City of Light grew from and still feed off the dark fountainheads of riot, rebellion, mayhem and melancholy—and the subversive literature, art and music of the Romantic Age. Weaving together his own with the lives and loves of Victor Hugo, Georges Sand, Charles Baudelaire, Balzac, Nadar and other great Romantics Downie delights in the city's secular romantic pilgrimage sites asking , Why Paris, not Venice or Rome—the tap root of "romance"—or Berlin, Vienna and London—where the earliest Romantics built castles-in-the-air and sang odes to nightingales? Read A Passion for Paris: Romanticism and Romance in the City of Light and find out.

The New York Times bestselling author of The House Girl explores the lives of four siblings in this ambitious and absorbing novel in the vein of Commonwealth and The Interestings. “The greatest works of poetry, what makes each of us a poet, are the stories we tell about ourselves. We create them out of family and blood and friends and love and hate and what we’ve read and watched and witnessed. Longing and regret, illness, broken bones, broken hearts, achievements, money won and lost, palm readings and visions. We tell these stories until we believe them.” When the renowned poet Fiona Skinner is asked about the inspiration behind her iconic work, The Love Poem, she tells her audience a story about her family and a betrayal that reverberates through time. It begins in a big yellow house with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation forever known as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings—fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden boy Joe and watchful Fiona—emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected. Two decades later, the siblings find themselves once again confronted with a family crisis that tests the strength of these bonds and forces them to question the life choices they’ve made and ask what, exactly, they will do for love. A sweeping yet intimate epic about one American family, The Last Romantics is an unforgettable exploration of the ties that bind us together, the responsibilities we embrace and the duties we resent, and how we can lose—and sometimes rescue—the ones we love. A novel that pierces the heart and lingers in the mind, it is also a beautiful meditation on the power of stories—how they navigate us through difficult times, help us understand the past, and point the way toward our future.

Part adventure story, part cultural history, this “enjoyably offbeat travelogue” explores the phenomenon of the spiritual pilgrimage (Booklist). Driven by curiosity, wanderlust, and health crises, David Downie and his wife set out from Paris to walk across France to the Pyrenees. Starting on the Rue Saint-Jacques, then trekking 750 miles south to Roncesvalles, Spain, their eccentric route takes 72 days on Roman roads and pilgrimage paths—a 1,100-year-old network of trails leading to the sanctuary of Saint James the Greater. It is best known as El Camino de Santiago de Compostela—“The Way” for short. The object of any pilgrimage is an inward journey manifested in a long, reflective walk. For Downie, the inward journey met the outer one: a combination of self-discovery and physical regeneration. More than 200,000 pilgrims take the highly commercialized Spanish route annually, but few cross France. Downie had a goal: to go from Paris to the Pyrenees on age-old trails, making the pilgrimage in his own maverick way.
