Roberta Lee's Suburban Sprawl

Owning Betty

When is it love, and when is it obsession?

Intertwined stories of obsessive passion wrap and tighten around each other like a noose as Owning Betty spins out in a claustrophobic landscape of recurring ice storms and murder. Suddenly-famous writer Debbie Bloom draws the attention of a lethal chameleon; meanwhile, her passion for bad boy Jack Marin simmers--well, until it starts to boil over, of course-- and a dead husband simply refuses to let go with love.

Wildly sexy, outrageously satirical, twisted and vastly creepy, Owning Betty follows The Liar's Guide and The Chilling Effect as the third volume in the Suburban Sprawl series of related novels. Manicured lawns (and rehab), domestic bliss (and domestic violence), golf clubs (and strip clubs)--welcome to suburbia, circa right now! Roberta Lee's Suburban Sprawl is one scoop erotica, one scoop murder mystery and one scoop ghost story, topped with a generous dollop of wicked satire.
