Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the spark and zest of a gin fizz, Paulette Jiles invites readers along on an unforgettable rail trip. Our hatted heroine, a Katharine Hepburn type, is leaving America, escaping to Canada, hoping to find her Spencer Tracy somewhere in the Dome Car between Vancouver and points east. This heroine on the run soon finds her handsome man ? who happens to be a detective pursuing her. Acclaimed by The New York Times as ?the best train story since Mary McCarthy?s `The Man in the Brooks Brothers Shirt,?? Sitting in the Club Car is an elegant, illustrated, witty romp that combines an old-fashioned love story with period detective fiction.
