The Gambler's Daughter by Jillian Chantal

The age of free love, bell-bottoms and the Vietnam War give rise to the end of the line for the Queen Mary as an ocean cruiser. As part of the final voyage, the entire McSwain family is invited to sail from Southampton to Long Beach, California. Bernadette McSwain, daughter of Eden and Dirk has inherited her mother�s psychic gift and plans to write about the ghosts onboard the ship. She�s a true woman of her era. Hip, smart and independent.

Lazarus Garcia, a straight-laced Spanish Grandee haunted by his experiences in Vietnam decides to apprentice in the kitchens of the luxury liner as he wants to open his own five-star restaurant.

Lazarus and Bernadette butt heads but when people start dying in violent and terrible ways, they set aside their differences in order to try to solve the crimes.

About the Author

Jillian Chantal is the pen name of a lawyer in Pensacola, Florida. She decided she needed to work under a pen name when she was sitting in a room full of staid male lawyers. Jillian has always been a storyteller and written for fun. When she was in the fifth grade, she wrote a story about Mr. Pepper who fell in love with Miss Salt. He went to medical school and became Dr. Pepper. This story got rave reviews and was even copied by the teacher and distributed to the younger kids' classes. The bug to be published someday had bitten Jillian.

Jillian put off her dream to be published as she went to college and law school. She was too busy to dedicate the time to writing due to the interference of the practice of law and raising children. Once her children got older, she started back with the dream of being published.

Jillian has several short stories published. She has a book named "Solo Honeymoon" that will be released in January 2011. She also has her book here at Desert Breeze Publishing coming in July 2011. It's called "Redemption for the Devil."
