    Summary

    She didn't feel much like a hero; she felt like a bumbling fool who had been dropped into a hive of hornets. Heroes found a clear path to follow and never faltered or had doubts. Heroes wooed and won the people they loved. If she was making a story of their adventures, she thought ruefully, she would have made a better tale.

    Summary

    This was ridiculous. She hated not understanding. She hated the fact that she could not discipline these strange, illogical reactions away.

    Summary

    “Come on,” Gale said, her voice softer now. “It’s a couple weeks of your time, max. We put snow tires on my car, and we drive around the Wonderland Killer’s stomping grounds. Stay in some shitty motels, interview some yokels who’ll probably stare at our tits. Drink bad diner coffee. And whenever you feel like bowing out, you’re out, no questions asked. You want another selling point? It’s all on the publisher’s dime, and I’ll cut you a share of the advance, too. Don’t tell me you couldn’t use the money.”

    She could use the money. What she didn’t want was the notoriety. Sidney Prescott, the two-time victim.

    “And let me guess,” she said. “All you want is to put my name on the cover. Probably not a co-author credit—I’m thinking part of the subtitle. On the Trail of the Wonderland Killer: A Journey with Ghostface Survivor Sidney Prescott.”

    Summary

    She could have acted like a sap for anyone, but she had poured her heart into it to trap Margo—Margo, who was no one’s fool. It would have been easier to be a pitcher plant in someone else’s dressing room, but Eve had made her choice, and she had never regretted it. She said, “I admired you.”

    “And I came with accessories. Attached talent like Bill and Lloyd.”

    It took Eve a moment to even place the names. She shook her head. “It was always you.”

    Summary

    “Yes, but every lady prefers her own bathing dress,” Mrs. Parker said.  Her certainties were few, but this was one of them, and she spoke with unaccustomed authority.  “Don’t you agree, Miss Heywood?”

    “If she has her own, I suppose she always prefers it to one that can be had by everybody,” Charlotte said, “and saves her envy for one owned only by someone else.”

    She herself had none.  The family economy had never allowed for the luxury of either a gown that would be seen by no one or one that existed only to be speedily removed.  She would either have to trust to Mr. Parker’s opinion of the healthfulness of the public dresses or allow the sea itself to ensure her modesty.
