Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Widow of Wall Street:

“I dare you not to read Randy Susan Meyers’ The Widow of Wall Street in one big gulp. What is it like to be married to a disgraced wolf of Wall Street, and how do you survive the aftermath of a scandal? Meyers answers the question with a fascinating page turner that somehow manages both to indict and absolve.”   (Melanie Benjamin, New York Times Bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue. )

“I’ll be honest: High finance isn’t my thing and I worried I wouldn’t be able to get into The Widow of Wall Street. How wrong I was! With all the suspense of a thriller, The Widow of Wall Street quickly pulled me into the story and didn’t let me go until the last page. Randy Susan Meyers made me feel, on a visceral level, the giddiness of Phoebe and Jake’s rise to power and the mounting panic as their lives and marriage began to crumble. Brilliantly executed and beautifully written, The Widow of Wall Street should have wide appeal.”  (Diane Chamberlain, USA Today Bestselling Author of Pretending to Dance. )

"Randy Susan Meyers' new novel explores the consequence of deception within a marriage driven by ambition and greed. The Widow of Wall Street is full of robust characters, scandal, and heartbreak. A riveting and engrossing read that I finished in one greedy gulp.” (Alyson Richman, bestselling author of The Lost Wife. )

“Compelling. This is a great read . . . An engrossing emotional journey.”
  (Kirkus Reviews)

“If you enjoy dark fiction about family relationships and deception, keep an eye out for a new novel coming out this April from bestselling author Randy Susan Meyers. The Widow of Wall Street opens in 2009 with a visit to the Ray Brook Federal Correctional Institution, where Phoebe Pierce’s husband, Jake, is imprisoned on fraud charges following the discovery of the elaborate Ponzi scheme upon which he built their fortune. The novel follows Phoebe from the beginnings of her relationship with Jake in the summer of 1960 through the present day, living with her husband’s notoriety and the world’s censure and suspicion, reminding readers with that sparkly city skyline that all that glitters is not gold.”

  (Jewish Book Council, The Prosen People)

“[A]n engaging and sharp reflection of the rapid changes in marital dynamics over the course of the 20th century, as well as a cautionary tale about the dangers and allure of ambition in the heyday of Wall Street.”

  (Publishers Weekly)

Praise for Accidents of Marriage:
"This novel's unsparing look at emotional abuse and its devastating consequences gives it gravity and bite, while a glimpse into a physically damaged mind both surprises and fascinates." (People)

"A deft exploration of the borders of abuse and the aftermath of tragedy, the triumphs and disappointments of recovery, and the possibilities of faith and forgiveness." (Star Tribune)

"Many books are an absolute pleasure to read, but slip straight from your mind. Accidents of Marriage is one of those rare novels that is both unputdownable and unforgettable. I just loved it, and I'll now read everything Randy Susan Meyers writes." (Liane Moriarty, New York Times bestselling author of The Husband's Secret. )

Praise for The Comfort of Lies:

“Randy Susan Meyers’s second novel is sharp and biting, and sometimes wickedly funny when the author skewers Boston’s class and neighborhood dividing lines, but it has a lot of heart, too.” (Boston Globe)

“I devoured this big hearted story of three women whose lives collide years after a baby is put up for adoption.” (J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Commencement and Maine. )

“With a vision that is generous, yet unsentimental, a testimony to the healing power of the truth.”
  (Tayari Jones, author of Silver Sparrow. )

Praise for The Murderer’s Daughters:

“All too believable and heartbreaking.”  (LA Times)

“Unshakable truths at every turn. ”  (The Denver Post)

“The Murderer’s Daughters will have you enraptured and wanting more.” (Massachusetts Center for the Book)
