A novel by Elaina Marie

How do you rebuild your life after the ultimate deception?

Charlie Zancolfagasnanto is an intelligent, beautiful, sexy, middle-aged woman trying to regain her equilibrium.  Her dreams of an idyllic life with husband Darrell are shattered when she quickly discovers his meticulously crafted, charming facade was part of an intricate plot to use her as a pawn in his plan to infiltrate the upper echelons of the Catholic church.  Still reeling from the duplicity that led to her bitter divorce, Charlie embarks on a new career path as a private investigator.  Enter Robert Fordes, a dashing retired cop, now the owner of a prestigious detective agency in the state of Rhode Island, a hard- nosed cynic who is willing to hire Charlie as the first female PI on his team.  When the two meet, sparks fly, but the walls each has guarding a wounded heart won’t make the road to success – or the road to love – a smooth one. The stakes are high when Robert’s long-time confidante, DEA head Fredrick Constantino, enlists his friend’s firm to help crack a case involving notorious mob boss Antonio Bellesto.  The king pin’s criminal operations span from the picturesque New England coastline all the way to the hallowed grounds of Vatican City.  Betrayal, abduction, and a long-simmering vendetta all collide, and unlikely alliances are forged, while the methodical tactics of a terrorist group on a ruthless covert mission threaten to implode the world’s most powerful religion.   Charlie and Robert will have to trust their instincts – and each other – as they fight demons both real and imagined.  Nothing is what it seems when you battle The Evil Within.

    I just had to buy this novel after speaking with the author who also is the developer of Elaina Marie Beauty! I laughed hard at times and was scared at others. I loved the easy flow of the story and especially loved that the chapters were not like 30 pages long! The story moved fast and I give it 5 stars and cannot wait for the next one to come out!

    I want everyone to know what a great, easy read this book was. It took only two days, and that was with putting it down. It was funny, romantic, and chilling, all at the same time. I also enjoyed how many scenes were in Rhode Island, where I live, so visualizing was easy. Looking forward to her next story, and hopefully Charlie is in it!!!
