Don't let the man get you downBud Pulaski has controlled the women around him for years, but his final act sets them free to find their own destinies in the empowering In Love's Shadow, by Catherine Lanigan (the author who novelized Romancing the Stone.)Roya, the unsuspecting wife, must take over the bankrupt business, with a too-reluctant manager, Nick Petros. Bud's teenage daughters face their owngrowing-up challenges when the family is forced to move from their lavishsuburban home. Kitt, Bud's longtime mistress, finds her lifelong dream ofmarrying him shattered. And at the core of it all are the unanswered questions: who killed Bud and why?Lanigan's absorbing tale of family torn apart, then put back together stronger and better than ever, is a winner.
