DANGEROUS DUPLICITY was written from the experience of losing my husband's sister at a very young age from Cystic Fibrosis. Overcoming grief became the theme of the story, along with a troubled romance, the search for justice to solve a murder and the protagonist inadvertently becoming embroiled in solving yet another murder. Of course, it's a love story, but it's really about a family, a mother with an illness, several siblings, and a father who runs one of the largest yachting companies on the Riviera. The most frequent praise is once you start the novel, you won't be able to put it down—and yes, there is a sequel in the works.
