The past comes back seeking vengeance. To save her family and friends, Novice PI Eve Appel, pregnant with her second child, must outwit the bad guys in a final act of desperation, risking her life and that of the man she’s asked to help her, her mob boss friend, Nappi.
Someone is targeting the friends and family of Eve Appel Egret, owner of a rural Florida high-end consignment shop and part-time private investigator. The intimidation includes stealing the horse of one of Eve’s rancher friends, forcing her car off the road, attempting to kidnap her daughter and leaving messages on her phone threatening more dreadful acts to come. Eve almost succumbs to gas inhalation when someone enters the consignment shop and cuts the gas line while she is in the shop. And just when Eve could use the help of her mob boss friend, Nappi, with his far-reaching resources, she discovers he has gone into hiding, himself a target. By the time she finds him, he has lost all his financial assets and his influence, but not his determination to help Eve. It’s clear to Eve that someone from the past has returned to seek vengeance on her and those she loves. Her hunches lead her to believe she can bring the person responsible for the threats into the open by setting a clever and desperate trap. She knows the bad guy will come with reinforcements, but she never counted on who they would be.
About Lesley A. Diehl
Cows, Lesley learned growing up on a farm, have a twisted sense of humor. They chased her when she went to the field to herd them in for milking, and one ate the lovely red mitten her grandmother knitted for her. Determining that agriculture wasn’t a good career choice, instead she uses her country roots and her training as a psychologist to concoct stories designed to make people laugh in the face of murder. “A good chuckle,” says Lesley,” keeps us emotionally well-oiled long into our old age.” She is the author of several cozy mystery series and numerous short stories.Author Links Website www.lesleyadiehl.com Blog www.lesleyadiehl.com/blog Facebook www.facebook.com/lesley.diehl.1 GoodReads www.goodreads.com/3414925.Lesley_A_Diehl Amazon www.amazon.com/author/lesleydiehl Purchase Links – Amazon Kindle – Amazon Paperback – B&N Nook – B&N Paperback a Rafflecopter giveaway https://widget-prime.rafflecopter.com/launch.js TOUR PARTICIPANTS June 1 – I’m All About Books – SPOTLIGHT June 2 – Christy’s Cozy Corners – AUTHOR INTERVIEW June 2 – FUONLYKNEW – SPOTLIGHT June 3 – Socrates Book Reviews – SPOTLIGHT June 3 – Lisa Ks Book Reviews – CHARACTER GUEST POST June 4 – MJB Reviewers – SPOTLIGHT June 4 – #BRVL Book Review Virginia Lee Blog – SPOTLIGHT June 5 – I Read What You Write – GUEST POST June 6 – Maureen’s Musings – SPOTLIGHT June 7 – Literary Gold – SPOTLIGHT June 8 – Ascroft, eh? – CHARACTER INTERVIEW June 8 – Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book – AUTHOR INTERVIEW June 9 – Laura’s Interests – SPOTLIGHT June 9 – My Journey Back the Journey Back – CHARACTER GUEST POST June 10 – Mysteries with Character – REVIEW June 11 – Celticlady’s Reviews – SPOTLIGHT June 11 – Sapphyria’s Book Reviews -SPOTLIGHT June 12 – My Reading Journeys – REVIEW June 13 – Brooke Blogs – SPOTLIGHT June 14 – BookishKelly2020 – SPOTLIGHT June 14 – Christa Reads and Writes – REVIEW Have you signed up to be a Tour Host?
