    Kristina Riggle Discusses The Whole Golden World

    in Books

    Kristina Riggle, the acclaimed author of Real Life & Liars, returns to Book Club Girl on air to discuss her newest book, a thought-provoking novel inspired by real-life events.
    Seventeen-year-old Morgan Monetti shocks her parents and her community with one simple act: She chooses to stand by the man everyone else believes has exploited her—popular high school teacher TJ Hill. Quietly walking across a crowded courtroom to sit behind TJ, and not beside her parents, she announces herself as the adult she believes herself to be.
    But her mother, Dinah, wants justice. Dinah is a fighter, and she believes with all her heart and soul that TJ is a man who took advantage of her daughter. He is a criminal who should be brought to justice, no matter what the cost to his family.
    Rain, TJ's wife, is shocked that her handsome, loving, respected husband has been accused of a terrible crime. But has her desperation to start a family closed her eyes to the fault lines in her marriage? And can she face the painful truths about herself and her husband?
    Told from the perspectives of these three remarkable women, The Whole Golden World navigates the precarious territory between childhood and adulthood, raising questions about love and manipulation, marriage and motherhood, consent and responsibility. It'

    in Books


    Kristina Riggle, author of The Life You've Imagined, Things We Didn't Say and Keepsake (Summer 2012), discusses her first novel, Real Life and Liars.


    For Mirabelle Zielinski's children, happiness always seems to be just out of reach. Her polished oldest daughter, Katya, clings to a stale marriage with a workaholic husband and three spoiled children. Her son, Ivan, so creative, is a down-in-the-dumps songwriter with the worst taste in women. And the "baby," impulsive Irina, who lives life on a whim, is now reluctantly pregnant and hitched to a man who is twice her age. On the weekend of their parents' anniversary party, lies will be revealed, hearts will be broken...but love will also be found. And the biggest shock may come from Mirabelle herself, because she has a secret that will change everything.

    Kristina Riggle Discusses The Life You've Imagined

    in Books

    Join Book Club Girl of the blog http://bookclubgirl.com as she welcomes Kristina Riggle (http://www.kristinariggle.net/) author of Real Life and Liars, to discuss her new novel, The Life You've Imagined.

    Is the life you're living all you imagined?

    Have you ever asked yourself, "What if??" Here, four women face the decisions of their lifetimes in this stirring and unforgettable novel of love, loss, friendship, and family.

    Anna Geneva, a Chicago attorney coping with the death of a cherished friend, returns to her "speck on the map" hometown of Haven to finally come to terms with her mother, the man she left behind, and the road she did not take.

    Cami Drayton, Anna's dearest friend from high school, is coming home too, forced by circumstance to move in with her alcoholic father . . . and to confront a dark family secret.

    Maeve, Anna's mother, never left Haven, firmly rooted there by her sadness over her abandonment by the husband she desperately loved and the hope that someday he will return to her.

    And Amy Rickart—thin, beautiful, and striving for perfection—faces a future with the perfect man . . . but is haunted by the memory of what she used to be.

    Kristina Riggle's The Life You've Imagined takes a provocative look at the choices we make—and the courage we must have to change.

    Real Life and Liars: Kristina Riggle, Debut Author

    in Books

    Join Romance Radio in chatting with Kristina Riggle, debut author, about her new book, REAL LIFE AND LIARS, a fantastic new novel about an especially dysfunctional family, which we expect will become a reading group favorite from coast to coast. See what other authors have to say:
    This book has heart. Each of its four stories is compelling and makes you keep turning the page long after you should have turned out the light. The Zielinski family becomes your own. But it’s afterwards, when you put it down, that you realize the truth of the old saying: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Kristina Riggle gets it exactly right in this wonderful and heartwarming debut. — Becky Motew, author of Coupon Girl

    Real Life and Liars, Kristina Riggle’s sumptuous and rich debut novel, examines the complications that arise in family and marriage, love and heartbreak. With lush writing and nuanced, relatable characters, this book is a must-read for anyone who has ever been both grateful and driven mad by the people they love most: their family. — Allison Winn Scotch, author of the New York Times bestselling TIME OF MY LIFE
