    In this psychological thriller, past mistakes, revenge and family secrets dating back to the Second World War threaten to destroy two Hollywood families that are joined by blood and tainted by a scandalous legacy…Maria was the secret no one in Leo Bauer’s family talked about, her existence a constant reminder of his dead father’s shameful deviance. Yet ironically, from the first moment his mother set eyes on Maria, she wanted the girl for her very own – and was willing to go to any lengths to make that happen. And for the next nine years, Leo was able to successfully push Maria’s existence to the back of his mind until unexpected circumstances finally forced a meeting between him and the teenager. Despite Leo’s resolve to remain detached, he found himself drawn to her innocence. He knew Maria was off limits to him and yet, he simply couldn’t help himself. And so began their forbidden affair … until disaster struck, forcing Leo’s family to cut Maria loose.

    Years have now passed and Maria abruptly reappears at Leo’s door, almost unrecognizable in her ragged clothing, spouting a litany of barely coherent gibberish. Despite his initial shock, long-suppressed feelings for her begin to stir but when Leo tries coaxing her into his house, Maria runs away in fright. In her flight, she drops a worn photograph and when Leo sees it, he realizes that Maria coming back poses a threat to all of them. He must make a choice … follow his heart or eliminate Maria before she ruins them. Either way, he must find her first…

    There is Patina’s assistant manager, the handsome and charming Trent. Isabel was blackmailing him. There is Patina’s owner, the aloof and influential Anthony Thorpe. Isabel was smuggling drugs through his store. And there is the entire drug dealing Cantono family. Isabel had lost a box containing heroin from one of their shipments. That is just to name a few and didn’t even include the stranger who was seen arguing with Isabel just hours before her death.

    The police have too many suspects and too many soft alibis. Leah needs to prove to the sexy new chief of police that she had nothing to do with Isabel’s death.

    Leah loves a good mystery. Can she find the killer before the police charge her with murder?

When one of those teenagers, seventeen-year-old Karen Devane, is implicated in the woman’s homicide, the tabloids are quick to exploit the tragedy, thanks to Karen’s recent antics as a spoiled Tinseltown “celebrat” riding on the coattails of her famous grandmother, the legendary Kate Stanton.

    What do Santa’s Sidekick, a dead lawyer and a geriatric vampire have in common? Meet Mina Kitchen – a forty-something single who finds trouble quicker than she can whip up a batch of breakfast breads. Plural.

    Her next door neighbor Vito’s past as ex-leader of the Moils, the Jewish-Polish Family from Bumville, New Jersey, comes to light and throws a dollop of dilemmas into an already simmering plot.

    Top it all off with a counterfeiting ring, a county-wide dearth of holiday wrapping tape, and a mass of pets running loose at the local mall, and what do you have? A recipe for disaster that Mina whips to a froth.

    Christmas Bizarre will keep you smiling when you’re not shouting up a belly laugh. Set in Lancaster, “Pee-Ay” you’ll discover a lively cast of characters, funny dialogue and lots of twists and turns. Hang on tight – you’re in for a slalom of a holiday ride.
