Synopsis : "Champagne was going to help with their decisions. But it didn't. From San Francisco to Italy, Stacie can't figure out how and why things keep happening. Throw in a few murders, a secret vault, a husband she thought she knew, a mystery woman in Italy ... and it all ends up in an Italian villa. With enough twists and turns to create some confusion, Stacie is positive she is done being surprised. But it is far from the end."
In reality there are two stories that mesh into this book. One incorporates pieces and parts of my own history and story. And, one is simply a story using people, places, and things as I know them.
After a successful career in health care administration I became an internationally published travel writer, accepting assignments in the United States and Italy. I understand that career and know how it works so it was easy to weave that into Champagne Lies. I still travel to Italy and love to write about places people may not have heard about.
My husband is an engineer, so once again I understand some of that world and how his mind works! Since I like to read mysteries, not necessarily ones with lots of blood and guts, this genre is easy for me write. Making my reader wonder what’s coming next, offering some twists and turns, and throwing in a little intrigue is the type of writing I enjoy. Hopefully, my readers will enjoy it as well.
