With her raucous, ribald debut novel, It's in Her Kiss, Elizabeth Dean did for gay friendships what Sex and the City did for the straight world. Now, in Between Girlfriends, she introduces four unforgettable Boston friends searching for love... They're here. They're queer. They're also drunk, outrageous, unstoppable, fashionable, hilarious, insightful, and hopeful they'll find a girlfriend who can mix a mean cocktail and kiss like a house on fire. But when the chips are down, the dating's getting ugly, and the smug couples are too obnoxious to bear, a woman's best defense is always the comfort shared between girlfriends. Gracy Maynard doesn't mind being a freelance writer--after all, it has a better ring to it than "unpublished writer." But is it too much to ask, to try to find a girlfriend who isn't hopelessly immature or seriously bank-account challenged? Thank God for friends like... ...Lindsay Tompkins, she of the conservative lawyer suits and the anal-retentive smiles. Voted "Most Likely To Be Mistaken for a Funeral Director" by her nearest and dearest, Lindsay's idea of big fun is putting in overtime. As much as Lindsay hates coming home to an empty apartment, she's far too busy working to join "the search" and too P.C. to play the field, unlike her friend... ...Parker Lowell. To Parker, P.C. stands for "plastic china, " something she personally wouldn't be caught dead using. Everything about Parker's world is larger-than-life--from her expensive clothes to her wild jewelry, ample girth, out-there sex life, and wickedly sharp tongue. Sometimes, the only thing that keeps Parker's stilettos out of her mouth is the good sense of... ...Blair Brown. The girly-girl black Americanprincess has some serious fairy tale "issues" of the unresolved kind. Blair's never met a person she didn't like--or a girlfriend she didn't try to accommodate. Happily looking for a partner, Blair is determined to meet Ms. Right, no matter what it takes to land her... PRAISE FOR IT'S IN HER KISS: "Dishy...There's no shortage of action [in this] girls' guilty pleasure." --Publishers Weekly. "Deliciously over-the-top..." --Bookmarks. "Dean's beach novel is an entertaining, fast-paced soap." --Booklist
