A to Z April: D Reviews - The Dewey Decimal System of Love by Josephine Carr/Double Helix by Nancy Werlin
Behind a french twist and sensible clothes, forty-year-old librarian Alison Sheffield hides an extravagant nature. But after last night, even her most proper attire can't disguise the signs-the pink cheeks, the extra-poufy hair, the bounce in her step. Alison Sheffield is in love.
The heart-palpitating, nausea-inducing, silly, inexplicable, absurd and pointless kind of love found in a romance novel. And for once in her life, what Alison needs to know she can't find in any reference book-she can only live it...
Eli has lucked into a job at Wyatt Transgenics offered to him by Dr. Wyatt, the famed scientist. The salary is substantial, the work is interesting, and Dr. Wyatt seems to be paying special attention to Eli. It's almost too good to be true. Is there a catch?
Eli's father is vehemently against his taking the job, but won't explain why. Eli knows that there's some connection between Dr. Wyatt and his parents something too painful for his father to discuss. Something to do with his mother, who is now debilitated by Huntington's disease. As he continues to work at the lab, and to spend time with Dr. Wyatt, he begins to uncover some disconcerting truths about himself about his very makeup.
Rich and suspenseful, with a hair-raising conclusion, this is Nancy Werlin's most dynamic novel yet one that explores the ethics and amazements of genetic engineering.
Have you read either of these books? Josephine Carr doesn't have as many other books available as Nancy Werlin does, so maybe you've read some other of Werlin's books. Do you think you'd want to read either of these?
