From the New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed comes a novel that shows how someone with a ‘perfect life' can lose it all—and then find everything. Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma. But Darcy's neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane "good girl," steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life...with a baby on the way. Darcy tries to recover, fleeing to her childhood friend living in London and resorting to her tried-and-true methods for getting what she wants. But as she attempts to recreate her glamorous life on a new continent, Darcy finds that her rules no longer apply. It is only then that Darcy can begin her journey toward self-awareness, forgiveness, and motherhood. Emily Giffin's Something Blue is a novel about one woman's surprising discoveries about the true meaning of friendship, love, and happily-ever-after. It's a novel for anyone who has ever, even secretly, wondered if the last thing you want is really the one thing you need.

A beautifully repackaged bind-up of two of Emily Giffin's beloved bestselling novels Something Borrowed: A novel for every woman who has ever had a complicated love-hate friendship. A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan firm and a diligent maid of honor to her best friend Darcy, Rachel White has always played by all the rules, quietly accepting the sidekick role to Darcy in their lopsided friendship. But that changes the night that Rachel confesses her feelings to Darcy's fiance, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself. Something Blue: A story of betrayal, redemption, and forgiveness. Darcy Rhone has always been able to rely on a few things: Her beauty and charm. Her fiance, Dex. Her best friend, Rachel. She never needed anything else. Or so she thinks until Dex calls off their dream wedding and she uncovers the ultimate betrayal. Blaming everyone but herself, Darcy flees to London and attempts to re-create her glamorous life on a new continent. But to her dismay, she discovers that her tried-and-true tricks no longer apply--and that her luck has finally expired. It is only then that she can begin her journey toward redemption, forgiveness, and true love.
A shadow of doubt is cast over a California bride when dire warnings about her fiancé arise in this thriller from “the mistress of day-lit terror” (The New York Times). Johnny Simms, a young biology student from Columbia University, has just arrived in San Francisco for a wedding. The lucky bride-to-be is a childhood friend: twenty-year-old Nan Padgett. But the shy, unsure girl he used to know has suddenly blossomed into a radiant, confident, and ecstatically happy young woman. And why wouldn’t she? Richardson Bartee, a handsome vintner from Southern California, swept her off her feet during a whirlwind courtship. Then comes the call from Nan’s aunt Emily, her beloved childhood guardian, with a stinging warning: “You must not marry this man.” Johnny fears that Emily is not just being overprotective. And when Aunt Emily suddenly dies under mysterious circumstances, Johnny begins an investigation into the past that draws him into the nightmare of the Padgett family tree—one so tangled with murder, lies, greed, and deception, it has kept Nan in the dark for twenty years, and so dangerous, it has yet to claim its last victim. Filled with twists, Something Blue is a riveting tale from the Edgar Award–winning author who has been called “the American queen of suspense novelists” (New York Telegraph).
College friends Lucy and Katherine reunite as adults—and build a new friendship as changed women Katherine shows up at Lucy’s Manhattan doorstep having run away from the marriage altar.

Along with Lucy’s oddball best friend, Julia, the women tackle the complicated challenge of being young, lost, and in search of life in New York City. Something Blue is a heartfelt but never sentimental modern classic, capturing three women on the verge of the future, still figuring out the past, and trying to solve the present all at once. A novel that addresses friendship, ambition, and love head on, Something Blue and its three heroines head in surprising directions in their search for meaning.

The crime fiction novelist presents his third anthology of short stories with Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, a mixed collection bound to please. "Something Old" refers to his first western "The Utica Kid" among others; "Something New" to his well-received crime fiction short stories such as "Anything you Can Do," "A Lapse of Memory," "An Afternoon in Boston." The "Something Borrowed" includes "Cold Turkey and a Bottle," a tribute to the old Alfred Hitchcock films, and "Something Blue" to his remembrances of times gone by with "The Playground," in particular. The anthology also allows the author to comment on the human condition in stories such as "The Double Date," and on the important issue of teacher tenure via "A Lifetime Appointment." In addition, essays include his "Encounters with Famous People" such as Bill Clinton, Barbara Bush, Muhammad Ali, and Lauren Bacall. In "Was 'the Greatest' Really the Greatest?" he pays tribute to the greatest heavyweight of all time, and in "Inspirational People" he provided a valentine to a leader.
Something Borrowed, Something Blue is a broad survey of the wider principles of harmony, form, adaptation, and developmental technique underlying jazz composition in its various instrumental formats. This book examines compositions ranging from those for solo piano to large ensemble, from common forms such as blues and 32-bar song forms to extended through-composed pieces, to those based on adaptations of European classical forms such as fugue and rondo. Such topics as individuality of voice, cultural and historical influences, the contrafact, formal appropriation, pantonality, reharmonization, and the use of counterpoint are among those covered. Composers represented include a wide range of stylists, similar to Scott Joplin, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, Gil Evans, Mary Lou Williams, Herbie Hancock, Oliver Nelson, Hermeto Pascoal, and John Lewis, among many others. The extensive bibliography, discography, and end of chapter assignments are designed to provide students and faculty at either the undergraduate or graduate level with a flexible framework for analysis of additional compositions of their choice, as well as a basic set of useful research references and suggested compositional projects. Some questions the book poses are: What formal elements and musical characteristics are common to the diverse stylistic range of jazz composition? Which of these elements exist in any form of musical composition or artistic expression, and which are unique to composition in the jazz tradition? How do composers apply these techniques in a way that enables them to create an individual voice within the context of the jazz tradition?

A government minister or a team of policy experts paid a brief study visit to the United States; a short time later a new initiative was announced which bore a close resemblance to a US programme. More recently, the flow of policy ideas across the Atlantic appears to have reversed direction. This book develops a three-tiered approach to the analysis of policy borrowing. The first section draws on a number of different literatures relevant to this area to create an analytical framework for the study of policy borrowing. Section Two examines the specific context in which these borrowing episodes occurred, asking: ‘Why did Britain look to America for policy inspiration in the latter half of the 1980s?’ The final section examines individual cases of policy borrowing at the local and national levels, attempting to distill lessons about the borrowing process.

"In London's prestigious West End, a disgraced CEO has been murdered at Hotel Nonpareil, an exclusive destination. No one, it seems liked Michael Martin Hughes. Not his estranged wife, Thora, or his defiant son, Griffin. Not Hotel Nonpareil's manager, its head of security, or perhaps even the other two women in Hughes's life: his future bride, Ariana, or his secret girlfriend, Riley. Still more ominously, before Hughes died, he incurred the wrath of a potentially more unforgiving foe: Sir Duncan Godington, longtime nemesis of both CS Hetheridge and DS Deepal "Paul" Bhar."--Back cover.
