This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Publication Date: May 5
From Publishers Weekly:
"Financial troubles and more test the marriage of a downtown Manhattan career mom and her business journalist husband in this writerly page-turner from Listfield. Sam and Lisa Barkley, who were college sweethearts, can just afford to send their two daughters to an Upper East Side private girls' school, though Lisa, whose family “struggled into the middle class,” wonders if a public school “gifted” program would've been a better choice. Meanwhile, Sam's late-night phone calls and odd absences from his office lead her to accuse him of having an affair. Lisa confides her fears to her best friend from college, Deirdre Cushing, whose mysterious death heightens the tension and mistrust between Lisa and Sam. Listfield ensures no character is above suspicion, and in the end, no one is without blame."

I'd love to hear what you think about Best Intentions once you read it! And I'm happy to come to book clubs in person or by phone - I love meeting you guys. In the meantime, I'm blogging about some of the topics in Best Intentions - marriage, money envy, kids, infidelity, financial pressures - on my new blog, Bruch Babble. Come join me and let me know what's going on in your lives! http://emilylistfield.wordpress.com/
