Idle Gossip

We’re a little late in touting the news here at the website (even though we sounded the trumpets across social media and in our newsletter), but Idle Gossip is finally out in the US!

The fifth Lillian Frost and Edith Head mystery is now available in both hardcover and ebook. We’re so excited to have Idle Gossip out in the world, in part because it brings Lorna Whitcomb, whose columns have anchored the series from the very beginning, onto the page as a character. We’re even happier about the reviews, like the one from Booklist that said “the authors do a fine job of capturing the spirit of 1940s Hollywood and its gossip-driven subculture, and they continue to turn Edith Head, who was an Oscar-winning costume designer, into a believable crime-solver ... A good story, a colorful backdrop, and interesting characters ... the Frost/Head novels provide all of those. They’re snappily written, too.” Publishers Weekly said “Hollywood history buffs will have fun,” while according to Kirkus “the chatter, much of it based on fact, makes this (book) shine.” Pick up your copy of Idle Gossip today!
