Chosen by People and USA Today as a Great Summer Read
Georgia Waltz has an enviable life: a plush Manhattan apartment, a Hamptons beach house, two bright twenty-something daughters, and a seemingly perfect marriage. But when Ben dies suddenly, she discovers that her perfect lawyer-husband has left them nearly penniless. As Georgia scrambles to support the family, she and her daughters plumb for the grit required to reinvent their lives, and Georgia even finds that new love is possible in the land of Spanx.
Inspiring, funny, and deeply satisfying, The Widow Waltz is a compulsively readable tale of forgiveness, healing, and the bonds between mothers and daughters.

Sally Koslow lives in New York City with her husband.From Booklist:
For Georgia Waltz, the first shock comes when her supremely fit and healthy husband, Ben, suffers a massive heart attack running practice laps for the New York City marathon. The second comes when she learns that her now-deceased hubby, previously a wealthy lawyer, left her and their two grown daughters penniless. Reeling with disbelief and a feeling of betrayal, Georgia struggles to make ends meet, searching for explanations as she follows the money trail, unearthing more surprises in the process. There’s the mystery of an emerald and diamond ring that her husband had appraised before his death. And the possibility of another woman. Meanwhile, her younger daughter, Luey, carries a secret of her own, and her eldest, Nicola, returns home from Paris to attend Ben’s funeral and adjust to life without his support. Initially, the three women hold a tight rein on their emotions, but as their stories unfold in alternating passages, they reveal their vulnerabilities and newfound strengths, drawing the reader in. This heartfelt, witty addition to women’s fiction will appeal to fans of Elizabeth Berg and Anna Quindlen. --Diane Holcomb
