"Magic Hour" is like polishing off an entire box of chocolate-covered chocolates. . . . Fun."-- "New York Times Book Review""Clever, unexpected, drum-tight. . . . The plot is streamlined and the time-frame is short and the voice we hear is witty, and coming-at-us real."-- "Washington Post Book World ""A wonderfully rich, sensual sort of novel. . . . The dialogue rips along with panache, with sharp and surprising turns, always funny, always fun."-- "Detroit News""Magic Hour" does exactly what it's supposed to do -- entertain."-- "Chicago Tribune"If you're in search of pure entertainment, pick up a copy of "Magic Hour."" -- "New Woman"Holds its edge." -- "Glamour"A witty and sexy page-turner." -- "Pittsburgh Press "Good news for Isaacs's fans: She is back in top form . . . again exhibiting her wickedly observant eye and flair for ricocheting pitch-perfect dialogue." -- "Publishers Weekly"A novel that keeps you guessing, raises your eyebrows, races your motor and makes you laugh out loud, only to bring you, in the end, close to tears. "Magic Hour" is a hats-off achievement." -- "Washington Times"Elegantly funny and original. . . . Long after the handcuffs are snapped shut you're likely to find yourself smiling fondly at the memory of Susan Isaacs's one-of-a-kind characters." -- Anne Tyler"The same witticism-wrapped . . . center that always drives Isaacs's fans dotty." -- "Kirkus Reviews "Snappy plot." -- "Entertainment Weekly
