Two years after her husband’s accidental death, Caroline Spencer, a single mother of four, ventures into intimacy with her friend, private investigator Dominic Marquez. Immediately, obstacles beset them. Caroline’s troubled, twelve-year-old daughter objects to the relationship. Work and family obligations limit their time together.
Will Dominic let his mother’s mental health problems come between them? How will Caroline respond when her choices as a prosecutor run counter to Dominic’s interests? As Caroline seeks guidance from friends and family, trusted mental health counselors, and even a purported psychic, yet another troubling question arises, that ultimately touches her both personally and professionally: Are there really people with clairvoyant abilities?
In Taken for a Fool, her third in a series of Caroline Spencer novels, author Leslyn Amthor Spinelli again draws on her experiences with the judicial system to take us behind the scenes and into a federal courtroom.
