Okay, so my Alphabet Rule appears to be failing - but there's a reason I picked this book up.  Which won't make sense to anybody else much, but there's been this conversation, and somebody asked, and I knew I had but hadn't read, so I said I'd bring them with me, and thought, what the hey - I've got a night, I'll read the first one.  So I did.

From the Blurb:

School teacher Lora King finds her quiet suburban life disrupted when her brother Bill, a junior investigator with the District Attorney's office, meets a woman by chance and quickly marries her.  His new wife is Alice Steele, a beautiful and charming Hollywood wardrobe assistant, and although everyone else is entranced by her, Lora becomes suspicious of the inconsistencies in the stories from Alice's past.

Opening Lines:

Later, the things I would think about.  Things like this.  My brother never wore hats.  When we were young, he wouldn't wear one even to church and my mother and then grandmother would force on on his head.
