Lightning storm in southwest France inspires romantic suspense novel
Sherry Joyce’s debut fiction, The Dordogne Deception, was conceived when the tower of the French chateau where she was vacationing was struck by lightning. Terrified and unable to sleep that night, a romantic suspense novel was born, inspired by extensive travel over many years throughout Europe, as well as the familiarity of living in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Evoking her experience as a Silicon Valley Vice President of Human Relations, Sherry Joyce has created an appealing main character in Cherise Eden, an attractive, high profile female executive who escapes from San Francisco to a castle in southwestern France to heal the wounds from her unforeseen divorce.
A cunning guest charms the new owner of the castle, Cherise, luring her toward a deadly deception. A retired detective residing in the English Cotswolds investigates an improbable accidental death which leads him to the French castle where he prevents a murder and discovers love in the outcome. Duplicity and murder shatter Cherise’s illusions as she comes to realize decisions made during a woman’s most vulnerable moments are the most dangerous.
Author Joyce has enjoyed many years of creative and technical writing including product marketing to serving as editor-in-chief of high-tech company newsletters. Her award-winning projects and articles have been featured in Gentry, Builder Architect, California Home and Design, and National Kitchen and Bath.
She is a member of Sacramento Sisters in Crime, Northern California Publishers and Authors, San Francisco Women’s Book Association and Romance Writers of America. Find Sherry Joyce at SherryJoyce.com and facebook.com/sherry.joyce.50.
The FOL invites everyone to celebrate "Love Your Library Week" (February 9 to 15) by attending Sherry North's presentation. The first 40 attendees will receive a Valentine goody bag
