Susie is a pit bull terrier who’s eleven years old, good-natured, and a fugitive from the law. Her owner, Denise Lansing, doesn’t think she has a problem when the city of San Gabriel, Texas, passes a law banning pit bulls. After all, Susie has impeccable manners and stays indoors or in the backyard most of the time. Then the police are at the door.
Denise must act, but her attempts to find a new owner for Susie outside the city have been fruitless; there are no takers for an aging pit bull. So when Denise’s ex-husband finds a home for Susie in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Denise feels she has no choice. A man with a large estate is willing to take the dog, and Steve Wingfield, a skillful and daring pilot, will fly them to the Yucatan.
Denise could easily fall in love with Steve, but it’s obvious there’s something evil happening on the estate where she’s supposed to leave Susie, and she’s wondering how her ex and the fascinating pilot are involved. When the attempts on their lives begin, Denise and Steve have to join forces.
Steve is terrified of dogs due to an incident in his past, and Denise is suspicious of him because of his involvement with her ex. In spite of this, the attraction between them is growing, but before they can concentrate on each other, they must figure out how to save themselves and Susie, who just might end up saving them instead.
This book is available from Amazon US and Amazon UK. Continue reading “Book Brief: Saving Susie”
Thank you for finding Indies Unlimited.
Here at IU, we do our best to provide helpful information to indie authors of all levels. Our goal is to provide the knowledge they need to make intelligent decisions about writing and publishing. We are not, however, a watchdog site, nor do we try to be. There are other sites out there, such as Writer Beware and Preditors and Editors, which dedicate their resources to identifying scammers.
Despite all the efforts to make authors aware of predators looking to make money off of them, the best tool is actually knowing how to spot a scam. That knowledge will enable authors, no matter how often the scammer changes its name, to avoid being taken advantage of.
Thank you again for finding Indies Unlimited.
