Melanie is looking for this book, and she can only remember one of the subplots. But, boy howdy, what a subplot it is:
There is a book that I have been looking for for what seems like forever! I "borrowed" it from my mother during the early to mid-90s. I remember absolutely nothing about the main plot (which has obviously been a bit of a hindrance when it comes to finding the book!). I loved the subplot though and that's the reason I'm looking for it.
An actress (who I think is the main heroine's nemesis...maybe?) ends up with a cop who, like everyone else, thinks she is cold-blooded. She never seems to show emotions except when acting and even when she's confessing her feelings for him, her eyes seem fixed at a spot over his shoulder. It turns out she has a stutter/stammer and can only speak without it if she projects what she wants to say, like a script, and reads it. It's only when the cop is leaving her that the truth comes out.
I think the cover was blue with silver writing...but that also is no help! Does anyone know what book I'm talking about...or even what the main plot was about? Please! This book has been haunting me for years! Thank you so much.
Does that sound like an amazing subplot or what? Do you recognize this book?
