Following Polly by Karen Bergreen – A From Left to Write Book Club

Following Polly by Karen Bergreen

Are you a stalker? Do you solve mysteries? Maybe just on Facebook, right? Read the stories the From Left to Write bloggers are sharing today, inspired by book Following Polly by Karen Bergreen. Also, be sure to weigh in on the From Left to Write poll about snooping.

Special thanks to Darryle Pollack from I never signed up for this… for sourcing this book.

About the book:

Would you call Alice Teakle a stalker? Or just someone with an, um, healthy obsession with golden girl Polly Linley Dawson? No one much notices Alice: not her boss, not the neighbors, not even her Mother.

Besides, everyone follows Polly: her business selling high-end lingerie you can imagine only her elegant self wearing, her all-over-the-social-pages marriage to movie director Humphrey Dawson, her chic looks, her wardrobe. Alice just follows her a little more….closely.

And when she loses her job and starts to follow Polly Dawson one Manhattan autumn afternoon, Alice stumbles on the object of her attention sprawled dead on the floor of a boutique. Alice is forced to become truly beneath anyone’s notice. Invisible, in fact. Because she’s accused of murder.

But can another obsession help save Alice with the fallout? Charlie is Alice’s longtime unattainable crush. He might be able to help her out of the mess she’s in…in return for a favor or two, that is. And how will Alice find out if Charlie is really the man Alice thinks he is?
