Hook, Line & Sinker

release cover

New Orleans is known as the “Big Easy”, which is a perfect place for former FBI agent Jennifer Blade and Dr. Steve Sanders to drop out of life – almost literally. Jennifer is legally dead and in witness protection after bringing down a major drug cartel. Steve is content to simply love Jennifer, New Orleans and life.

But this calm, laid-back life wasn’t meant to last – everything suddenly changes as sinister people open the doors to the past in an attempt to deeply cripple America.

“Bingo” Bob Somolianti steeped himself in crime and corruption before he was granted immunity and witness protection in exchange for his testimony against powerful crime syndicates. Part of Jennifer’s life since her mother and father died, Bingo walked a path of crime while Jennifer followed her desires into the FBI. Because of his past contacts with arms dealers, powerful people believe he is the key to finding an ultimate weapon needed to implement their destructive plan. Together, Jennifer, Steve and Bingo attempt to unravel this scheme while there is still time.

Steve, as a practicing psychologist, suddenly finds his understanding of life being challenged as he works with a woman who is deeply into the culture of Voodou. His resistance to this mystical practice is worn down as supernatural events begin to intervene in the challenge he, Jennifer and Bingo face.

A botched drug raid took her father’s life when she was seven. On her thirteenth birthday she witnessed her mother’s murder. Alone in the world, Jennifer Blade set out to even the score. At thirty-three, enmeshed in a game that knows no rules, she is about to fulfill her quest when everything unravels. Fleeing for her life, she heads to the mountains of upstate New York, where she unexpectedly finds new reason to live.

Steve Sanders, a thirty-eight-year-old psychologist with a predictable life, is on a fishing trip in the mountains. Little does he know that all vacations are not created equal.

Within 24 hours, they catch a few trout, have a passionate affair, shoot and kill a man, are involved in two gun battles, receive wounds, and end up in Miami, Florida. All this, and as Steve says, they still have 6 days of vacation left. Their relationship touches long-buried feelings in Jennifer, and shatters the mundane existence suffocating Steve.

Catch and Release, a riveting romance/suspense novel, is the story of two lives from vastly different backgrounds, drawn together by fate and a common love of the great outdoors. The crossing of Jennifer and Steve’s paths releases an explosion of love, passion, adventure, and ultimately a reason for a shared journey
