OTHERWISE ENGAGED, Lindsey J. Palmer

“Perfect for fans of Emily Giffin and Elin Hilderbrand.” –Library Journal

“An excellent read, best enjoyed with a good glass of wine.” –Booklist

“Fun and consistently satisfying.” –Publishers Weekly

Life is sweet for New Yorkers Molly and Gabe: They’re young, in love, and newly engaged.But when Gabe sells his first novel–a thinly-veiled retelling of his wild love affair with ex-girlfriend Talia–and it becomes a national sensation, Molly can’t help but feel like the third wheel. To make matters worse, Talia reappears in Gabe’s life, eager to capitalize on the book’s success and to rekindle what she had with Gabe… at least, that’s how it seems to Molly. But even more concerning? Gabe doesn’t seem concerned at all. Instead, he’s delighting in his newfound fame and success.

Jealous, paranoid, and increasingly desperate, Molly starts to spin out of control. Her social life, work life, and love life all go to pieces. As fact and fiction, and past and present, begin to blur, Molly realizes the only way out of this downward spiral is to fight her way back up. But what–if anything–will be left of her life and her relationship when she arrives?

Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Jennifer Weiner, OTHERWISE ENGAGED (Skyhorse, February 2019)n explores the life we seek when the life we have… suddenly goes down the drain.

Lindsey’s third novel, Otherwise Engaged (Skyhorse, Feb 2019) follows on the heels of  Pretty in Ink (Kensington, 2014), a hilarious satire of the world of magazine publishing, and If We Lived Here (Kensington, 2015), a witty and heartfelt exploration a couple’s search for commitment—to each other and to their first apartment. In her Otherwise Engaged, Lindsey turns her attention to marriage and the wedding industrial complex. The rock-solid bond of newly engaged couple Molly and Gabe gets shaken when Gabe’s novel, a thinly veiled account of his relationship with his wild ex-girlfriend, becomes a national sensation. As fact and fiction, and past and present, start to blur, and it’s a countdown to the couple’s wedding day, Molly is forced to confront some hard truths about herself and her relationship.
