Lucy-Anne Skylark believes in love...at any age. But on a decade changing birthday and in fear of losing her job, this middle-aged, divorced journalist hits rock bottom. A personal Ah-ha moment leads Lucy to subscribe to an Internet dating site, Love.Com which offers to refund her fee if she finds her soulmate within three months. After a night of overindulgence with her best friend, she finds an indecent profile, which she inadvertently sent to Love.Com profiling herself as a hot cougar woman. Lucy is horrified, but the idea inspires her to reinvent herself as a Cougar columnist, despite this derogatory term, which in 2016 the media still used to describe middle-aged women re-entering the dating scene. In order to save her job, Lucy swallows her pride and pitches her idea to her boss, Camilla, who rewards her with a make-over and subscribes Lucy to her boyfriend's internet dating site to collect and write about dating experiences for the magazine. But Lucy clashes with Adam Grant, (Camilla's boyfriend) when he states that it's impossible for women her age to find love. He boasts that all men want young, sexy women and that middle-aged women are unattractive and past their prime. Lucy is outraged! She challenges him to a bet and sets out with determination to prove him and the media wrong about their perception of middle-aged women finding love. But there is one more shock! Unbeknown to Lucy, Adam Grant just happens to be the CEO of Love.Com and unbeknown to both Camilla and her boyfriend Adam, Lucy now has two profiles on Love.Com— one personal and one for the magazine.
Managing one busy life is difficult enough, but managing two is almost impossible! Things become complicated when signs of a split personality begin to surface and Lucy questions who she really is…MsCougar or Lucy? Can she fight a business tycoon, the media and keep a level head? Or will she lose herself on this journey of self-discovery?

THE JUDAS TREE, the second psychological thriller in my 'Linked Series'. It’s a chilling story of multiple acts of betrayal and the consequences of greed.
FEAR is destructive . . .
When Frances suspects that her adulterous husband has sinister intentions, she must confront her emotion of fear and decide if it is real or simply paranoia.
REVENGE is deadly . . .

Frances soon comes to realize that she is indelibly linked to Lauren and Tom by the resurgence of all three emotions, fear, obsession and revenge which cycle through their lives as a constant theme, reminding them that each action and interaction has a consequence which develops their life's journey. In each part a death occurs, but none are by accident.
Speaking of books... and authors...
Marathon Marina hosted a book signing for Susan Bacoyanis, author of There Are No Accidents. I missed the book signing, but I was available to attend a question and answer session under the Tiki Hut where I had the opportunity to meet Susan. Susan was born in England and has a most lovely English accent to which one can listen for hours. There Are No Accidents is a psychological thriller through which themes of abuse, addictions and feminine resolve are intertwined with the plot.
The book is a series of three short stories which are linked together through interesting circumstances. There are twists and turns and surprises throughout the series which are sometimes wickedly humorous. Susan is affiliated with the non profit organization Domestic Abuse Shelter of the Florida Keys. A portion of the profits from the sale of her books helps to support this organization.
