Marrying the Ketchups

Much like an actual family, Close’s tale is real and messy, and love it or hate it, a good addition to library collections.

The Hopefuls

Patrons who enjoy behind-the-scenes accounts of fictional political campaigns will want to pick this up.

The Smart One

Close's sophomore effort (after her acclaimed and best-selling Girls in White Dresses) is a well-written family drama in which all the characters keep moving forward, but not all loose ends are completely and neatly tied. This is sure to please fans of women's fiction dealing with family like the works of Jodi Picoult and Kristen Hannah. [See Prepub Alert, 10/8/12.]

Girls in White Dresses

This series of linked short stories is reminiscent of Melissa Bank's The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing. It is modern and funny, with original, wry observations. Close's debut novel will appeal to both fans of contemporary women's fiction with a hip vibe and readers who enjoy old-school chick lit. [See Prepub Alert, 2/14/11.]
