Alison Pace Books Overview

Pug Hill

For Hope McNeill, pugs are love, unconditional friendship, happiness, and freedom. She doesn’t have one of her own busy life, tiny apartment, but she does have Pug Hill in Central Park, where pugs and their owners from all over New York convene. She also has a crush on one of her co workers, a flailing romantic relationship, and an unspeakable fear of public speaking. Then Hope’s father calls with an assignment: to make a speech at her parents’ anniversary party. Frantic, she signs up for a public speaking class, but can’t help wondering will it transform her into an eloquent orator? Maybe some fears are so big that even all the pugs in the world might not be enough to assuage them.

A Pug’s Tale

The long awaited follow up to Pug Hill from ‘a poignant and very funny’ Washington Post writer. There are pugs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art! In the many years that Hope McNeill has worked at the museum, this is the first time she’s been able to bring along her pug, Max. Officially at least. Previously she’s had to smuggle him in inside her tote bag. The occasion: a special ‘Pug Night’ party in honor of a deep pocketed donor. Max and his friends are having a ball stalking the hors d’oeuvres and getting rambunctious, and making Hope wonder if this is also the last time she gets to bring Max to the museum. But when a prized painting goes missing, the Met needs Hope’s and Max’s help. In her quest for the culprit, Hope searches for answers with an enigmatic detective, a larger than life society heiress, a lady with a shih tzu in a stroller, and her arguably intuitive canine. With luck, she’ll find some inspiration on her trips to Pug Hill before the investigation starts going downhill…

If Andy Warhol Had a Girlfriend

She knows all about art, but does she know what she likes?

Jane Laine used to know a lot about art. But that was before she started managing a prominent gallery, and long before she met ‘it’ artist Ian Rhys Fitzsimmons. Jane can’t seem to put a finger on what exactly is so ‘it’ about his work. In fact, as far as she can tell, he’s a big fraud and his fifteen minutes of fame should be over by now. Which could be kind of a problem since Jane is the one who has to accompany him on a five month international art fair tour.

To get through it all, Jane figures she’ll be a good sport and keep her critiques to herself. Until, traveling with this alleged genius from London to Rome and beyond, she starts to understand the connection between art and love and the fact that in both, perspective is everything.

Through Thick and Thin

Stephanie is an overwhelmed stay at home mom with a six month old. Her sister, Meredith, on the other hand, is hitting the two year mark without a boyfriend or even a decent date but has a successful career as a food critic. Sometimes it seems the only thing these sisters share is their mutual desire to lose weight, so they decide to do it together. But will the strong desire for sisterhood outweigh their equally strong desire for comfort foods?
