In Book 1, Fool Me Once, Ronnie Chandler and her partners attracted The Westlake Group, investors from Virginia, to underwrite the creation of an equestrian community near Big South Fork’s renowned trail system. And Ronnie is mighty attracted to kind, handsome, charismatic venture capitalist, Luc Deschaines. But there’s a worm in the apple, in the form of Ronnie’s ex husband, Evan Parker, a powerful U.S Senator, who vows revenge when Ronnie and Luc play him for a fool.
In Book 2, A Bitter Wind Blows, the worm was the pompous, officious bestselling author, Bernard Hyatt, who rented a cabin for a few months through Horse Country Real Estate while researching his next potboiler about trailriding in Big South Fork. Unfortunately, the cabin is right behind Mindy Morrison-Myers and it doesn’t take him long to burrow into Mindy’s life, borrowing her horse, going along on her rides with best friend, next-door-neighbor and co-owner of the real estate agency, Ronnie Chandler, and all but destroying their friendship before leaving the wreckage behind.
In Book 3, Signs Of Life, the worm appears in the form of a villainess, the beautiful, sexy, talented and utterly amoral interior designer, Alix Hamilton. By the time Alix arrives on the scene in Tennessee, readers have already come to despise her, and she’s not done yet.
And in Book 4, Ride A Pale Horse, the current work in progress, yes, there’s a worm in the apple there too! The equestrian community, Riverwood, is thriving and Ronnie becomes friends and riding buddies with a new homeowner, Dana Beaumont, a wealthy woman whose husband travels incessantly on business. But Dana hires a “barn manager,” a Bernard Hyatt look-alike who burrows into her life too….with predictable results.
