Lindsey J. Palmer has published two other contemporary women's fiction novels with Kensington. Both books received rave reviews from PW, Booklist, Huffington Post, Shelf Awareness, and others. Otherwise Engaged is the perfect next pick for Palmer's loyal audience: an entertaining story with heart that explores universally relatable themes, characters to love and root for, and a thoughtful exploration of the many pressures young women face today from choosing the right romantic partner and the right friends to finding career success, happiness, and security. Perfect for fans of authors like Liane Moriarty, Jennifer Weiner, Emily Giffin, Meg Wolizer, and Sarah Pekkanen and readers of sophisticated, complex, and amusing women's fiction. Regional focus on the New York City. The "young woman comes to the Big Apple" trope never gets stale and readers are always looking for a new iteration of the hook. Having worked in the magazine industry for years, Palmer has connections at publications like Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Women's Health, Self, Shape, Good Housekeeping, Health, Real Simple, InStyle, Parents, Redbook, First for Women, Star, The New York Post, Metro, Refinery 29, Bustle, The Huffington Post Books, and more. Perfect beach read and book club pick!
