"Just a few years ago, Corie Geller was busting terrorists as an agent for the FBI. But at thirty-five, she traded in her badge for the stability of marriage and motherhood. Now Corie is married to the brilliant and remarkably handsome Judge Josh Geller and is the adoptive mother of his fourteen-year-old daughter. Corie fills her days scouting Arabic fiction for literary agencies and, every Wednesday, she joins a group of fellow Shorehaven freelancers for lunch at an allegedly French bistro. Life is, as they say, fine. But at her weekly lunch group, Corie senses that something is off. Pete Delaney, a milquetoast package designer, shows up early every week. He sits in the same spot, often with a different phone in hand, and always keeps one eye on his Jeep parked in the lot across the street. Corie can't help thinking that Pete is hiding something--and as someone who is accustomed to keeping her FBI past a secret from her new neighbors, she should know. But does Pete really have a shady alternate life, or is Corie imagining things, desperate to add some spark to her sweet but unduly safe existence? She decides that the only way to find out is to dust off her FBI toolkit and take a deep dive into Pete Delaney's affairs."--

Brave dames and wimpettes : what women are really doing on page and screen by Susan Isaacs( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this look at the role of women on page and screen, Susan Isaacs argues that assertive, ethical women characters are losing ground to wounded, shallow sisters who are driven by what she calls the articles of wimpette philosophy. ("Article Six: A wimpette betrays other women, including her friends.") Although female roles today include lawyers like Ally McBeal and CEOs like Ronnie of Veronica's Closet, they are wimpettes nonetheless. A brave dame, on the other hand, is a dignified, three-dimensional hero who may care about men, home, and hearth, but also cares - and acts - passionately about something in the world beyond. Brave dames' stories range from mundane (Mary Richards in The Mary Tyler Moore Show) to romantic (Katharine Hepburn in Adam's Rib) to fantastic (Lucy Lawless in Xena: Warrior Princess), but whatever they do, they care about justice and carry themselves with self-respect and decency. For a Really Brave Dame, think Frances McDormand as the tenacious, pregnant police chief in Fargo." "Isaacs's unmistakable love of fiction and film shines through even her most scathing wimpette assessments. In the end, she urges us to become "smarter consumers of art.""--Jacket
