Welcome to Hump Day Sparks, my place to feature this Waiting on Wednesday event, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

Today I’m spotlighting a book to be released on June 12, 2012:  Between You and Me, by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus.

From the authors of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Nanny Diaries comes a new novel that takes readers behind the scenes of stratospheric celebrity—what it means to be worshipped by millions and still feel loved by none.

Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus have proven again and again that they are masters at exploring the nuances of family relationships—as they intersect with the current trends in the culture at large.

 In Between You and Me, twenty-seven-year-old Logan Wade has built a life for herself in New York City, far from her unhappy childhood in Oklahoma. But when she gets the call that her famous cousin needs a new assistant, it’s an offer she can’t refuse. Logan hasn’t seen Kelsey since they were separated as kids; in the meantime, Kelsey Wade has become one of Fortune Magazine’s most powerful celebrities and carrion for the paparazzi. But the joy at their reunion is overshadowed by the toxic dynamic between Kelsey and her controlling parents. As Kelsey grasps desperately at a “real” life, Logan risks everything to try and give her cousin the one thing she has never known—happiness. As Kelsey unravels in the most horribly public way Logan finds that she will ultimately have to choose between saving her cousin and saving herself.


What are you excited about today?  What are you drooling over?  Come on by and tempt me….


    1. Thanks, June…and yes, the kids are some of my grandkids…the two on the left are the same as the two on the right…several years later. The one in the middle is now nine.

      Glad you could stop by.


    1. Thanks, Jo…I can’t believe how much the grandkids have changed over the years, but I can still see the babies and toddlers in their older versions.

      Glad you could visit today, and enjoy your pick!


  1. This sounds really intriguing – I’ve been reading more books that don’t have love stories as the central theme (blasphemy!). The whole celebrity scene has to be rich with material, this could be pretty dramatic. Very nice choice, thanks for introducing it to me!
