Every Little Thing

Pamela Klaffke, Mira, $13.95 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-0-7783-2923-7
The death of a San Francisco gossip columnist spurs big changes for her daughter in Klaffke's poignant and witty follow-up to Snapped. The late Britt Castleman had filled her columns with Bay Area society scandal and copious details about the life of her daughter, Mason. Mason, having fled to Canada to live outside the glare of her mother's attention, returns after Britt's death to get the family affairs in order, and, at 35, she's still carrying a rebellious teenage chip on her shoulder when she runs into Edgar and Aaron Neilson, the stepbrothers she briefly lived with when they were little. Aaron is instantly smitten, but it's the married Edgar who gets Mason in the sack. Soon Mason is being chastely pursued by one stepbrother while sleeping with the other. She also lucks into a writing gig that comes in handy once things go south with Aaron and Edgar, and it becomes pretty clear to everyone but Mason that she's turning into her mother. Klaffke maintains an exuberant irreverence while charting Mason's transformation, offering a whip-smart take on motherhood, daughterhood, and unconventional affairs of the heart. (Feb.)
