Accidents always breed consequences…

Frances Hay’s husband is having an affair.


She fears that his CIA girlfriend, Kelly, is watching her every move and when she discovers that the lies and deceit go deeper than she thought, tensions start to rise.


But is Frances’ husband really the adulterous man she believes him to be? Or has she simply imagined the whole thing?


After Frances moves out in a desperate attempt to start afresh, Lauren Carter moves in.


But it would seem that history is destined to repeat itself, for Lauren is also trapped in a loveless marriage with her abusive husband, Gary.


Gradually Lauren becomes obsessed with detailing his cruel misdemeanors in a private journal and it soon becomes a welcome escape from reality.


Events take a dramatic turn for the worse when Lauren is found dead on her patio floor and Gary is arrested for suspected homicide.


But did he do it?


Does Lauren’s journal hold the key to unlocking the mystery?


It’s not long before LA-based detective Tom pieces together the shocking truth, but will he come clean or is the truth too terrible to admit?


In a bizarre twist of fate, Lauren’s journal ends up in the hands of Frances Hay, who bids for it at the local auction house.


Inspired by their shared experiences, Frances continues Lauren’s story and it is at the signing for her new book that Frances first meets Tom.


They instantly fall in love but any hope of eventual happiness is shattered when Gary is released from prison and they become his next target.


What could he possibly want from them?


With an avenging criminal on the loose, Lauren’s journal may have brought Tom and Frances together, but it also holds secrets that could tear everything apart.


There Are No Accidents is a fast paced psychological thriller that will leave you questioning everything you thought to be true.

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.
