Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars
Out and In starts at a gallop when stunning beauty and amateur cellist Marie Donovan is jailed for killing a lecherous opera maestro. She swears she’s being framed, but only her best friend and lawyer believe her.
Marie is no stranger to trouble. Months before, her pro-quarterback husband Cole sails to his death off a Dallas high-rise, many say in shame after his money scheme leaves Marie on the hook for millions. Widowed and ruined, Marie pins her hopes on attorney Ryan Ingles, one of Cole’s football pals.
Marie, Ryan, and legal team fly to exotic islands in search of clues to Cole’s missing millions. As the tropics weave a romantic spell, a corrupt financier threatens Marie’s bliss, leaving her to wonder if she’ll ever clear her name and find her place in this world.
Reporter Terrance Nichols’s column, “Out and In,” provides a heavy dose of speculation to keep you guessing. Just when you think you know who killed the notoriously promiscuous maestro, you may be surprised. This legal thriller has the twists and turns you’d expect in a best-selling mystery, plus a romantic and heartfelt journey you can savor along with the novel’s beautiful female sleuth.
