Book blurbs:- 




Sherryn Albright has all the trappings of success; a devoted husband, loving children and a thriving business. Until a secret explodes on her doorstep. Reece has fathered a child outside of their marriage.

Confronted by the physical proof of Reece's infidelity, Sherryn travels through a wasteland of blame and unforgiveness. Long denied issues also conspire to spin her well-managed life off its axis. Her marriage is shattered, her trust in Reece destroyed, and yet she cannot deny her growing concern for his son.

When a murder makes it clear Reece has not escaped the mean streets of Kingston, Sherryn battles her conscience and public opinion to save her family and herself from destruction.




As master of his destiny, Paul Weekes does what is necessary to survive. He makes his own fortune, but his luck nosedives when hijackers target his illicit shipments. He has no proof, but suspects the police officer who facilitates his exports off the island of Xantrope has turned on him. To make things worse, Paul’s ne’er-do-well cousin is accidentally involved in a gang murder, and a hit is put on him.

A budding liaison with the cop's niece adds more complication. Janine refuses to accept Paul’s way of life, but inadvertently becomes a victim of his lifestyle. Thrust into kidnapping, double cross and murder, Paul must choose between a relationship with Janine and staying alive long enough to change the course of his future. See reviews on Amazon.

  27. Congratulations on the eminent release of your second book! The only difficulty will be when your first-place winner must choose between the two titles, as both look to be equally outstanding. I am looking forward to reading both and wish you much success with future sales. I especially enjoy doing book reviews this time of year, as people are looking for good summer reads. Again, congratulations on Dissolution!
