9781457544439: The PREAH Secrets

An exotic animal hospital in a wealthy community in southwest Florida sets the scene for a new novel featuring sex, murder, secrets and deceit. Port Royal Exotic Animal Hospital (PREAH) is more than a place where top-notch veterinarians treat animals of all shapes and sizes. The clinic, nestled in a wealthy southwest Florida community, provides the backdrop for a debut novel packed with secrets, lies and murder. Clinic owners Dr. Carston Spencer and his wife, Madison, hobnob with the best of society in Port Royal, but few residents know about the skeletons in their closet. And the drama doesn't stop there.

The PREAH Secrets features one twist after another. Although Carston has been sober for 14 years, he lost his first wife and children thanks to drug addiction. And Madison, while playing the doting wife, is considering an affair with a hunky young cowboy who works at the clinic and is an amazing kisser but thinks she should wait until her divorce is final first. She discovers that Carston is keeping another secret - this time from her -- and has been looking into selling the clinic, a deal worth millions because of the land.

Rumors of an incestuous affair involving two sisters and their father figure prominently in their self-defense claim in a trial over the murder of a clinic staff member's father. The sensational nature of the trial may put Carston over the edge. But anything can happen when the state's attorney, sheriff's deputy, businessmen, ranch hands and a high-powered real estate agency are involved. An exotic bird breeder is just one of the colorful characters in this engrossing novel, the author's first. One of her relationships provided inspiration for the story.

From the Author:

I was the first in my close-knit Catholic family to leave the state to attend college,moved to Europe and traveled the world with a military spouse. I have worked in medicine for more than 30 years before beginning to write The PREAH Secrets, which is my first novel based on some of the crazy relationships I have endured. My husband Allan, a former F-16 pilot with the Royal Danish Air Force, is now a commercial airline pilot and together we own three pizza restaurants. We live in Florida and have two rescue dogs, a Pug named Mushey and an English Bull Dog named Maggie Moo. I want you to know that from a crazy or bad life experience, something good can come from it, and it's always a life lesson.

From the Back Cover:

The PREAH Secrets

More is going on than meets the eye in the Port Royal Exotic Animal Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility in a wealthy community in southwest Florida. Dr. Carston Spencer and his wife Madison, who own the hospital, are prominent residents in Port Royal, but few know the skeletons in their closets. Carston kicked a drug addiction that cost his former wife and children, although he's stayed sober for 14 years, and Madison is considering an affair with a hot young cowboy who works at the hospital, although she'd prefer to wait until her divorce is final.

A trial over who killed a staff member's father may put even more pressure on those at the hospital as rumors of an incestuous affair involving two sisters and their father lie at the heart of their self-defense claim. Friendships and deals between prominent doctors, a high-powered real estate agency, state's attorney, sheriff's deputy, businessmen, ranch hands, and an exotic bird breeder mean anything can happen.

The PREAH Secrets, inspired by real events, takes readers on a wild ride of secrets, sex, murder and deceit, with one twist after another until the dramatic conclusion.
