Book Description:

Tess Kincaid, celebrity golf professional, decides to visit and meet, for the first time, her presumptive fiancé Eddie Spinozza’s family in Albany, New York for Thanksgiving, in anticipation of the next step in their relationship. The Spinozza and Cuchinelli families have been entrenched in Albany for two generations, but Eddie has assured Tess that he is not involved in his family’s “business”. However, on the first night of her visit, sitting in The Dirty Martini Club watching Eddie perform with his band, she witnesses the brazen shooting of one of the band members. Almost simultaneously, and without much warning, an epic, once-in-a-lifetime snowstorm suffocates Albany, preventing Tess from leaving town.

She subsequently becomes a material witness to a series of events, which the police are only reluctantly investigating. What happens next is a daring, and life-altering event that brings Eddie and Tess to a do or die scenario amid mob warfare. The results are quite unpredictable.

Review By LAWonder10:

What started out to be a strong romantic relationship takes some “turns” when Tess goes to Chicago with Eddie to meet his family at Thanksgiving-time. Tess Kincaid is a famous pro-golfer, plus much more. This vacation was far from what Tess expected. How strong are Eddie’s family ties? If he had to choose, would he give his loyalty to their relationship or his family?

These questions and more arise as unexpected and shocking situations arise. Will love or family loyalty prevail?

 This is an action-packed Tess Kincaid novel. Although written as a “stand alone” it is much more enjoyable when the first in a series is read. 

The story ties generations together. It is exciting, mostly unpredictable and can be emotional at times.

The characters are well-developed and realistic. The scenes are portrayed well. The combination are easily visualized. Other than some foul language and a somewhat weak ending, the story was very interesting.

I offer a Four Stars rating
