Description


It seemed exciting at first, but after two and a half years in New York, Tracey has to admit her life...well, sucks. Sure, she makes a decent living as a copywriter, but Blaire Barnett Advertising is a cutthroat world that basically swallows her life. If she does manage to get home before nine, she's usually greeted by husband Jack's best bud, an almost-permanent fixture in their tiny, unaffordable apartment. Add the circus freaks stomping around upstairs, and Tracey decides it's time to move.

After quitting her job, she and Jack take the plunge into the nearby suburbs of Westchester and quickly discover they're in way over their heads. Their fixer-upper is unfixable, the stay-at-home yoga moms are a bore and Tracey yearns for her old friends--she even misses work!

So which life does she really want? Other than Jack's wife, who is she? If Tracey merely has to find her own Slightly Suburban niche, it had better be just around the corner, because there're no subways here!

      • bioText:

        is a pseudonym for bestselling, award-winning novelist Wendy Corsi Staub, who has written more than 40 fiction and nonfiction books for adults and teenagers in various genres — among them contemporary and historical romance, suspense, mystery, television and movie tie-in, and biography. She has coauthored a hardcover mystery series with former New York City mayor Ed Koch and has ghostwritten books for various well-known personalities, including the cover model Fabio.

        A small-town girl at heart, she was born and raised in Dunkirk, New York, on the shores of Lake Erie and the heart of the western New York snowbelt. Wendy was in the third grade when she declared that she intended to become an author when she grew up.

        With that unwavering goal in mind, encouraged by her remarkably supportive parents, she moved alone to Manhattan at 21. Wendy worked as an office temp, freelance copywriter, advertising account coordinator, and book editor before selling her first novel, which went on to win the Romance Writers of America RITA Award for Best Young Adult Book. She has since received numerous positive reviews and achieved bestseller status, most notably for the psychological suspense novels she writes under her own name.

        Very happily married with two children, Wendy now writes full-time and lives in a cozy old house in suburban New York, proving that childhood dreams really can come true.

Slightly Suburban
fullDescription

It seemed exciting at first, but after two and a half years in New York, Tracey has to admit her life...well, sucks. Sure, she makes a decent living as a copywriter, but Blaire Barnett Advertising is a cutthroat world that basically swallows her life. If she does manage to get home before nine, she's usually greeted by husband Jack's best bud, an almost-permanent fixture in their tiny, unaffordable apartment. Add the circus freaks stomping around upstairs, and Tracey decides it's time to move.

After quitting her job, she and Jack take the plunge into the nearby suburbs of Westchester and quickly discover they're in way over their heads. Their fixer-upper is unfixable, the stay-at-home yoga moms are a bore and Tracey yearns for her old friends--she even misses work!

So which life does she really want? Other than Jack's wife, who is she? If Tracey merely has to find her own Slightly Suburban niche, it had better be just around the corner, because there're no subways here!
