What a pleasure it is to bond with someone on one of the social networking sites. I never expect to and yet it’s happened to me numerous times. You discover you have interests in common and start communicating back and forth and suddenly you’re “friends.”
In the case of “Bayla Highland,” which is a pseudonym for my Twitter buddy, we found out that we not only rooted for the Yankees but were both writers. A physician, she’s more at home with medical backdrops than the more domestic settings most often found in my novels, but she, too, is writing both fiction and nonfiction.
Her first published novel is an e-book thriller available from amazon for a whopping ninety-nine cents. Don’t you love these prices?
Here’s the description from its amazon page:
Thirty-two-year-old Lisa Caprelli seems to have the perfect life: loving father, doting husband, and a powerful satisfying job that has made her wealthy beyond her wildest dreams. But beneath the surface lie many secrets and deceptions.
Lisa has just found out her husband has been having an affair and is about to issue divorce papers. Her fury over being deceived would be more understandable were it not for the fact that she has been conducting her own extramarital affair with her younger, extremely handsome Executive Assistant, Jeff. But regardless of her own actions, she feels betrayed and acts quickly to dissolve her farce of a marriage.
Before the divorce papers are signed, Lisa suffers a near fatal car accident causing temporary memory loss. Her husband Roger spends his days at Lisa’s hospital beside, and his nights with his mistress Kelly. With Lisa in a vulnerable state, Roger’s feelings towards her soften, enraging Kelly, driving her to take matters into her own hands.
Lisa’s father and her lover Jeff step in to help. Now it is Roger and Kelly who are in mortal danger. This is where the fun begins. That is if you consider fun heart pounding suspense, with unexpected reversals of fortune and surprises at every turn. The novel is compelling until the very last word, with an ending that is unexpected yet satisfying.
Who wins and who loses? Rest assured, they all get what they deserve.
Sounds pretty intriguing to me. My Kindle is ready for a download.
