Description

Rich in both "rowdy" and big-city sophistication, Dallas is a city of paradox. It's a city with attitude where men don't walk, they "stride" and women with "big hair" speak with a distinct drawl because they want to. It's a city that has experienced, endured, thrived, and even capitalised on the reputation and scars of assassinations, protests, and murder. "To Love and Die in Dallas" unfolds through the pages of a diary that recalls the teenage years of four best friends. It recalls a time of innocence when Dallas teenagers were bopping at sock- hops to the tunes of Buddy Holly and Jerry Lee Lewis, cruising around White Rock Lake, and hanging out at the drive-in on Garland Road. But time changes everything. It is now the twenty-first century and those carefree teenagers are the power players in Dallas. The murder of one of the friends, Lindsay "Rose" Mitchell, wife of US Senator James "Buddy" Mitchell, turns Dallas high society upside down. Her funeral brings the three best friends back together again, where they vow to find out what really happened. But some stones are better left unturned.
Each one of them has deep secrets and they soon realise that anyone of them could be a suspect.

Review quote

"A fascinating mystery that gives the reader a tantalizing glimpse into the bold, exciting world of Texas in the 60's."--Kat Martin, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Scent of Roses" ""To Love and Die in Dallas" by Mary Elizabeth Goldman shimmers with intrigue and sparkles with insight. It is the author's first novel but if I'm of any judge of these things the American public will soon be demanding many more."--Kinky Friedman, bestselling author of "Cowboy Logic" "A twisty mystery rich with details of life, and girl life, in Dallas. The characters seem real, and the writing kept me turning the pages. I loved it."--Sparkle Hayter, author of "Naked Brunch" and "Bandit Queen Boogie"
