Sisters

Pat Booth, Author Crown Publishers $17.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-517-56439-4
Touted as a sizzling followup to the author's Palm Beach, Booth's disappointing new book is pure Hollywood hype. When bestselling novelist Julie Bennett seeks revenge for a miserable childhood, the finger points first at her gorgeous younger sister Jane, whose magnificent body brings strong men and women to their knees. One of the men she incapacitates is Julie's ""toy boy,'' the handsome artist Billy, who leaves his mistress for her sister, then settles for a lucrative career as the art world's latest wonder. Betrayed by Billy and set up by Julie, Jane stumbles into the clutches of a porno photographer before achieving instant fame as a hot new TV star, a status her venomous sister is determined to destroy. The sole surprise is buried beneath one-dimensional characters, steamy sex and overblown, syrupy prose. 75,000 first printing; 75,000 ad/promo; first serial to Cosmopolitan; paperback rights to Ballantine; Troll Book Club selection; author tour.
