Lisa’s critically acclaimed eleventh novel, Killer Smile, not only received rave reviews from industry insiders, but was chosen as a BookSense “Summer Pick.”
Killer Smile became an instant New York Times hardcover bestseller and stars the young associate Mary DiNunzio whose terror over a late-night threatening phone call is only escalated by a suspicious car that seems to be tracking her every move. And, when a lawyer close to Mary turns up dead, she begins to suspect that the case she’s been working on — involving the suicide of an Italian-American in an internment camp during World War II — may not be history after all. Add to that the fact that everybody around Mary has decided that she’s not allowed to be a Young Widow anymore, and is fixing her up with blind dates from hell. Then a killer comes after her, and it’s more than any girl can handle — but not any woman.
Reads of Killer Smile, Lisa’s eleventh novel, are earning Lisa enthusiastic, two thumbs-up reactions across the board. In fact, in addition to rave reviews from industry insiders, Killer Smile has been chosen as Main Selections by both Literary Guild and Mystery Guild. It has also been featured in Doubleday Book Club, Quality Paperback and Book of the Month Club.
