"Highly recommended...Deadly Deception is the substance of motive thrillers." -The Midwest Book Review

Blinded by Love...
Romance seemed unlikely for Brenda Gunn, a shy and insecure health care worker living outside Kansas City. Then she met Glen Brumbaugh, a charmer who showered her with attention and promised a fairy tale marriage. It seemed too good to be true.

Seduced by Lies...
Madly in love, she overlooked the stunning news that he was a felon, fresh from a twelve-year prison stint. Even after barely surviving an inexplicable fire, and a bizarre hit-and-run accident, Brenda remained cautiously loyal to the man she married-until one dark night.

Determined to Get Even.
Brenda discovered that her husband was having an affair with her best friend. Together they'd spun an elaborate plan for murder. The prize was Brenda's million-dollar-insurance
policy. Without proof, no one could help her. With no one left to trust, Brenda played a deadly game of her own. She bought a gun and matched devious cunning with breathtaking courage. When it ended, one player would vanish. One would die in a pool of blood, and one would survive to expose the intimate evils at the heart of true love...

"The facts in this book are unbelievable." --The Sunday Oklahoman
