Off The Shelf: The Suite Life by Suzanne Corso and Giveaway

The book I’m taking down from the shelf today to talk about is most book coverintriguing and thanks to Kristin and the great folks at Gallery Books, I have 2 extra copies of the novel to giveaway. (More on that in a minute).

Author Suzanne Corso brings back the “true female voice” (The New York Times) of aspiring author Samantha Bonti in THE SUITE LIFE, the breathtaking companion novel to BROOKLYN STORY.

Here’s a brief synopsis of THE SUITE LIFE

    Growing up in Brooklyn, Samantha Bonti knew the writer’s life she was meant to live waited across the bridge in Manhattan. Summoning the courage to break free from an abusive mobster boyfriend, Sam finally leaves Bensonhurst and begins her new life, working as a temp in a Wall Street brokerage firm. 

    Quickly, she’s swept off her feet by Wall Street player Alec DeMarco, a man of boundless energy, appetites, desires, and the wealth to indulge it all. In a whirlwind courtship, Alec showers Sam with exquisite gifts, the city’s finest cuisine, spontaneous weekend getaways, and, most of all, the love and security a girl from an unstable Brooklyn upbringing craves. 

    But when the party’s over—when Alec’s high-flying career turns litigious and the big money is left on the table—will love be enough to sustain them? With her dream of publishing her novel still very much alive, Sam can’t back down now; she must choose the life that’s most true to who she really is inside.

Here’s what New York Times bestselling author Susan Isaacs had to say about Corso’s writing, “The bright and dark sides of the American dream as told by the Scheherazade of Brooklyn.”

   Suzanne Corso is the author of two feature film screenplays, has produced two documentaries, and written one children’s book. She was chosen as one
of USA TODAY's “New Voices of 2011” for her debut novel, A BROOKLYN STORY

    She currently lives in New York City. For more on Corso and her writing, visit her website at
