I highly recommend this book to mystery lovers, just be prepared to read into the early hours of the morning." - 5 stars Amazon

The Diva of Mud Flats

ASIN: 978-1947794160​

Francesca was the star of the Royal Opera. She need only snap her fingers and anything she wanted would be provided for her. She didn't have friends, nor did she need them. She only needed people to keep her surrounded in the finest things. Life was good, until her singing tour was interrupted and she found herself stranded in a dusty dude ranch with no money and no access to her bank accounts. Without cash to spend, her usually reliable people were unable to take care of her. Night was coming and their bellies were empty.  Finding food and shelter should have been their greatest concern, but things got much worse.

The Diva of Mud Flats is a wild romp where a pretentious aristocrat will learn who her true friends are, if she has any, because if she doesn't, there will be nobody to rescue her..
