Quotes & Awards

  • “Susan Isaacs has always done awfully well in her entertaining fiction, and she’s done it again in After All These Years.

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Loaded with wit, crammed with memorable characters, endlessly entertaining, and beautifully written.” 

    Los Angeles Times

  • “This is a mean, funny book...What makes Isaacs both interesting and fun is her addition of sardonic humor and dead-on social commentary...This book takes gleeful aim at excess wherever it finds it.”

    Houston Chronicle

  • “After all these years, [Isaacs] hasn’t lost her edge...[After All These Years] bursts with energy, razor-sharp dialogue, and memorable characters.”

    Detroit News

  • “Isaacs…scores again with this relentlessly funny portrait of the rich, old-line and nouveau. The plot rewardingly twists, the characters charm, and Rose carries the day. This entertaining and imaginative mystery makes a delightful summer cooler.”

    People

  • “Provides tears-down-your-face laughs, including barbed send-ups of the even-richer neighbors...If Steve Martin were a novel-writing Jewish housewife of consummate skill, believe me, he’d be Susan Issacs.”

    Cosmopolitan

  • “[Isaacs] has a field day lampooning upper-class mores…but also weaves into this thoroughly diverting caper unexpected moments of genuine tenderness and sly social commentary.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A cleverly written, witty, sophisticated and down-to-earth novel...filled with believable characters...and mystery, plus friendship, trust, and honest relationships.” 

    School Library Journal

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eileen | 1/19/2014

    " I read her first book several years ago and the book that picked up the same character later. I thought those books very good and funny. This book left me uninterested and I stopped trying after about 70 pages "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thelma Long | 1/15/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri | 12/30/2013

    " I got a big kick out of this book. It read fast and kept moving, and the main character is an English teacher who regularly tosses in references and allusions to literature in her ordinary conversations and thinking. It's not great lit, but it's a fun read. (I liked it much better than the other Susan Isaacs book I read, which I found to be tedious through the second 1/4 of it.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline Lee | 12/21/2013

    " This is a fun read! I am enjoying every minute of it. My mom and best friend could not put it down so of course I am reading it now! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 12/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 11/16/2013

    " So far it's enjoyable summer reading, a combination mystery, comedy and divorce story. OK, finished it, and it was lots of fun. Definitely easy reading and a page turner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Regina Brescia | 10/22/2013

    " This book has a little bit of everything. Suspense/mystery, romance, humor and a litle hanky panky. Plus it has a satisfying ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 9/18/2013

    " Some very funny lines but otherwise just ho hum. Also, hasn't aged well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 8/25/2013

    " Very cleaver! A good read on a cold, rainy day. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 4/6/2013

    " It started off well enough, quite funny. However, the funny was like a note held far too long, and I skipped rather vigorously to the end. There was not much of a surprise as to who the killer was, and that was disappointing as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susanfilz | 3/11/2013

    " One of the best I have ever read! A true muder mystery but funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol Roth | 10/30/2012

    " A fine, ditzy romance. Woman falsely accused of killing her almost ex. Humorous Not believable but a girl can dream cant she. Nancy Drew for the middle aged. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Herrick | 10/6/2012

    " Intriguing mystery and witty, read it at a time when I really needed a laugh and this definitely provided that. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel McKellar | 1/17/2012

    " This book was only mildly entertaining and slightly funny. Toward the end of the book when the main character was giving her long drawn out boring monologue about how the murder must have happened my mind kept thinking "scooby doo." Overall, it was okay. Not great but not terrible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 10/16/2011

    " light & fun mystery "

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ccarter773 | 9/20/2009
