Book Description: Clarissa Hadonfield had it all. She lived in a lovely home surrounded by affluent intellectuals, had a successful husband, and two phenomenal teenage boys. With the ring of a doorbell she finds her life substituted by one where she has to fight for her children against an evil she never knew existed and had been sleeping next to for the last twenty years. When Clarissa’s X shows his true colors, she finds she must become a strong woman who cannot only grow prize-winning flowers but can place a devastating roundhouse kick. Teaming up with Bryce Brightman, an ex-FBI agent, she uncovers a woman whose only goal is to save her children. This story is about what a woman can do when she put her brains, her brawn, and her boots into changing the course of her life and protecting the ones she loves.

BRT Review Title:  A Rollercoaster read full of girl power
BRT Review: If you are a housewife experiencing a lull in your relationship, you might not want to pick up this book because you will surely be paranoid about your husbands goings, and coming by the end. I was greatly entertained by the inner banter the heroine Clarissa had during her journey of discovery into the secrets her husband kept and the dangerous realities of where they lead her. The characters and the story line were well-developed, but the only complaint I would have is the definite similarities to other familiar stories like in the movie Sleeping With The Enemy and predictability of some of the choices made. Other than that, I found the writing to be very visual and enthralling.Good review talk! But you be the judge.

    • Hi Betty,
      Thank you for the request. We’ve had many and are in the works of recording my first novel Beatrice Munson. We’ll be getting to the others soon and hope to have them all in audio by this year. You might want to go to my website at and get on the mailing list so you are updated when they come out.
