Whew! This one has been a long time coming. Ever have a friend or relative, whom you love, but always seems to cause trouble? That’s what my next Rae Riley mystery, A STORM OF DOUBTS, has been like. I’ll tell you more about the hair-tearing process of writing this novel in the months to come. Oh, and the photo is not the official cover. It’s just a place holder until I can unveil the great one the cover designer at Mt. Zion Ridge Press will create.
Her dad said nothing could changer their relationship. But what if he wasn’t her dad?
Summer gets off to a rocky start for twenty-year-old Rae Riley when the ex-wife of family friend Jason Carlisle claims their youngest child isn’t his and Rae’s con man uncle Troy returns to Marlin County, Ohio. Rae is already at odds with her father, Sheriff Walter “Mal” Malinowski, over her desire to help people in trouble. When she extends that help to Uncle Troy and Jason’s ex-wife, she and Mal clash even more.
Then the ex-wife disappears, and Jason and his brother Rick are two of the main suspects. As Rae and her Aunt Carrie, a private investigator hired to protect Jason’s kids, work to discover what really happened, Rae wrestles with Troy’s insinuations that she may be calling the wrong Malinowski “Dad.”A Storm of Doubts by JPC Allen
