Christmas Eve – a time of wonder. The tangerine and ginger air of New York, the bright lights of a busy city, and a belief that something wonderful was going to happen to you for certain.
That’s the way it was for Amy. The beautiful, successful, 32-year-old Amy had achieved a lot, but she was still looking for the most important thing – her man. In the space of six months her life has gone through a one-hundred-and eighty-degree transformation: a move from New York to Los Angeles, a new environment, and a new woman – Amy.
Everybody comes into our lives for a reason. Do you believe that? Amy believes it, and what happens to her defies any logic. The irony in her life: is the two Richards. Completely different, and yet similar at the same time. And when happiness is so close, everything could crumble in a moment.
The novel follows the life of this strong woman over the course of six months, who was able to open a business following her divorce, and become a different woman, a better person than she was the day before.
Amy – is a reflection of any woman. You will delve deeply into her life and discover, to your surprise, how much she has in common with everyone. When you read this novel, you won’t notice that you will go through a transformation yourself, discovering answers to questions such as:
“What’s the purpose of life?”
“How do I accept myself, fall in love, and be in harmony with my own body, and my own thoughts?”
“How do I learn to forgive, and how do I learn to let go of people in my life?”
“How do I make a cardinal change in my life?”
“How do I achieve inner harmony?”
Above the winter blues. Above everything that has prevented us from just being really happy at the rustle of dappled wings from the butterflies we feel, and the beauty of our cozy silence.

Covington Stone owns a failing private investigation agency in LA. He’s a handsome mid-30’s guy, blue collar, smart, comes from old school NYC Hell’s Kitchen tough neighborhood. He recently had a stint in the NYPD before moving to LA and inheriting his uncles PI business.
He’s ambitious; wants his agency to grow and to have big-ticket clients, with many employees and offices all over the country. He misses New York City, and is constantly grouchy about L.A.
Problem? He can’t break out of this rut of sleazy, low-end assignments – divorces, cheating spouses, drugs, prostitution, insurance fraud, with each client being more unsavory, unscrupulous, and deadbeat than the last. When he approaches “big ticket clients” like movie stars, high-end attorneys, and big business executives, they always turn their nose down at him.
Depressed and at his wits end, he attends the “Law Enforcement, Investigations and Security Industry Summit” an annual professional convention in which people in law enforcement, investigation, security, etc, can attend to promote their business, learn new tactics, meet new people, mingle, attend panels, and listen to speakers.
This seems to deject him more as he meets several people who lucked into the higher end of the industry, getting the kind of assignments he wants. Drowning his sorrows at a nearby pub, a beautiful brunette sits next to him – Kerrie Barnett, former employee of the James Lindsend Detective Agency. There he learns that she was one of Jamie’s Saints.
She suggests that he get a female partner. Not one for men to ogle, but a beautiful, resourceful, educated woman who will provide him with that ‘in’ with the type of clientele he’s seeking. Covington’s a bit old school macho and thinks that this type of work is too dangerous for a woman, but his conversation with Kerrie makes him rethink that stance.
After interviewing a whole bunch of girls, they’re either vapid or crazy. He’s about to give up for good, when suddenly, Gilberto DaCosta, a rare gems merchant shows up at his office who said that Kerrie recommended him and his “partner”. Partner?
Covington nervously plays along trying to figure out what’s going on, pretending he does have that person, and then right before his lie is about to be blown, all of a sudden appears Sarah Colt.
Forced to solve a jewel heist case, “Sarah” is very secretive about herself and he believes Kerrie sent her. Who was this woman? Was she up to something? Was she hiding something? Was she someone important? Did she have a lot of friends? Or did she upset the wrong people? Or was she dangerous? All Covington could get from the case they were working on together was that Sarah was beautiful, an expert hand to hand combatant, multilingual – she’s got a whole bunch of skills…
