When a board member of a non-profit arts agency in Fort Worth turns up dead, the homicide detective assigned to the case looks at everyone involved in the organization, including the executive director.
Addison Jones Greer, divorced mother of two teens, is the executive director of Cowtown Theatre. When someone murders a member of the board in the costume room, suspicion rests on everyone involved with the theatre, including Addie. She has angered some board members because she wants to fire the artistic director. Although she’s warned him several times, he continues to go over budget for productions.
Mike Riley, Fort Worth homicide detective, hates that he caught this case. His sister-in-law dragged him to a theatre fundraiser where he met Addison, the first woman he’s wanted to pursue a relationship with in a long time. Not about to happen now.
Addison hasn’t ventured into romance since she caught her now ex-husband in their bed with his secretary. Trust isn’t something she does. How could she trust someone who seems determined to think she’s capable of murder? Or worse, thinks that her kids might be involved.
SECOND ACT, The Second Chances Series, Book 1, follows up with a supporting character in VERMONT ESCAPE. The series follows four friends who met when kids at camp, are now all in their forties, and though they may not know it, need second chances.
