Don’t miss today’s Thriller of the Day
Stunning beauty and amateur cellist
Marie Donovan finds herself in deep trouble after her pro-quarterback husband sails off a Dallas high rise–many say in shame after his financial scheme implodes. Just months later, the widowed Marie faces murder charges for the death of a lecherous opera maestro. Evidence points squarely at her, until only her best friend, brother and lawyer believe her innocence.
Marie is no stranger to struggle.
During her six years as an NFL Football wife, she fights off eager groupies who try to take her man, all the while feeling lost in Cole’s macho culture. Studying the cello becomes Marie’s solace until her hard-drinking husband retires after an injury. Returning to Dallas, Cole plays with high society’s money, until winning at all costs leaves Marie on the hook for millions.
Scorned by society, charged with murder,
Marie pins her hopes on defense attorney Ryan Ingles, one of Cole’s college football pals. Ryan and his investigative team uncover intriguing details that send Marie to exotic islands in search of Cole’s missing millions. As the tropics weave a romantic spell, a corrupt off shore banker ruins Marie’s bliss. She wonders if she will ever be free of blame…
…and able to claim her place in this world.
“The well-written tale starts quickly and with a bang … Evans has a fine ear for entertaining dialogue, and the use of short chapters helps her mystery-thriller keep moving briskly, even though the plot includes several side angles.” — Lone Star Literary Life
