Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0684838907, Paperback)Summer is shaping up poorly for Josie Trask. Her tippling mother is besotted with an ex-con who seems to be draining her bank account to cook gourmet meals. Her rather juvenile husband Peter is teaching in California with her sometime rival Monica. Meantime, Josie has derailed her scholarly dissertation to stay near Boston and make money digging up dirt on Jackie Onasis for a trashy celebrity biographer. Between memos on John F. Kennedy's co-ed pool parties and the odd skin condition of Jackie's father, she tries to keep tabs on Peter, reconcile her past, and learn what made Jackie--and, incidentally, Josie--tick. This is a light, entertaining first novel anchored by some mind-boggling quotes from Jackie.

Josie, a literature student, is offered a well-paid job researching the life of Jackie Onassis for a writer working on an intimate biography. She takes the assignment and discovers that Jackie's stormy marriage to President Kennedy strangely resembled her own. A first novel.
