Meet The Family in Suburban Weird
Author J. R. LaGreca crafts a riveting tale of lies, lust, love and betrayal in a contemporary masterpiece
Long Island, New York – June 12, 2008 – Some of the most outrageous events in life do happen to the family. In the new novel Suburban Weird, readers are about to witness an unforgettable tale of family, and the weird weaved by J.R. LaGreca.
Set in scenic Bay Shore, Long Island, Suburban Weird follows the exploits of Courtney Gold, a forty-year-old beauty. Courtney becomes apprehensive when she meets her future mother-in-law, Edith Stein, who turns out to be the eccentric woman her Aunt Bessie warned her about in the past. In spite of this troubling connection, Courtney marries her fiancé, criminal attorney, Seth – only to become dangerously drawn to his adopted brother, fertility specialist, Dr. Aaron Stein. Aaron flirts mercilessly with Courtney, while constantly belittling Seth, the black sheep and baby of the family. Things become precarious when Courtney and Seth move into Edith’s nine-bedroom mansion, and Aaron and his Russian mail-order bride, Natasha, twenty-seven years his junior, move in as well. The gorgeous teenage virgin adds spice to this bizarre blend. The situation escalates when Aaron treats Courtney for her difficulty in conceiving.
Is Aaron a complete professional like Seth vows him to be? How does Courtney handle her improper desires? Is Edith as insidious as her Aunt Bessie suspected? Will this madness come to an end? Their special blend of idiosyncrasies makes for a haunting outcome.
