“Harper’s Emily Griffin dished out seven figures for world rights to the next two books by Liv Constantine, a pseudonym for sisters Lynne and Valerie Constantine, the duo behind The Last Mrs. Parrish, which was published last year and was selected for Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine Book Club. Last Time I Saw You, their second book is due in May.
The first of the new contract, The Wife Stalker, due out in summer 2020, is a psychological suspense story that centers on Joanna, whose ex-husband has married a woman, Piper, whom Joanna suspects is a black widow, as her two previous ex-husbands—and a stepdaughter—died in tragic accidents. Fearing for the safety of her children and her ex-husband, Joanna is determined to win her family back. But Piper is equally determined to keep them for herself and schemes to make Joanna look deranged and dangerous.
In a separate two-book deal, Griffin also bought world rights to two thrillers from Lynne Constantine, writing under the pseudonym L.C. Shaw, that will launch the Jack Logan series, which centers on an investigative journalist. Both deals were negotiated by Bernadette Baker-Baughman at Victoria Sanders & Associates.”
