Kristina Riggle, the acclaimed author of Real Life & Liars, returns with a thought-provoking novel 

Famed Broadway producer Milo Short may be eighty-eight but that doesn't stop him from going to the office every day. So when he steps out of his Upper West Side brownstone on one exceptionally hot morning, he's not expecting to see the impossible: a woman from his life sixty years ago, cherry red lips, bright red hat, winking at him on a New York sidewalk, looking just as beautiful as she did back in 1934. 

The sight causes him to suffer a stroke. And when he comes to, the renowned lyricist discovers he has lost the ability to communicate. Milo believes he must unravel his complicated history with Vivian Adair in order to win back his words. But he needs helpin the form of his granddaughter Eleanor failed journalist and family misfit. Tapped to write her grandfather's definitive biography, Eleanor must dig into Milo's colorful past to discover the real story behind Milo's greatest song Love Me, I Guess, and the mysterious woman who inspired an amazing life. 
A sweeping love story, family mystery and historical drama set eighty years apart, Vivian in Red will swell your heart like a favorite song while illuminating Broadway like you've never seen before.
