After selling her sports car for a hybrid and choosing her career over a long distance relationship, Sophia’s life unravels in one day. She’s laid off from the job she loves and finds her sister is getting married. To complicate matters, her sister's prospective in-laws are not thrilled with the match; she's counting on Sophia to provide moral support and help win them over.
Sophia manages to land a new job, but what appears to be a glitzy public relations assignment turns out to have unexpected challenges. A mercurial CEO and difficult vice presidents complicate her assignment. As if this isn’t enough to deal with, danger lurks when she gets too close to the truth behind the profits.
With a cast of colorful characters, the plot unfolds with plenty of action and humor. This is the second book in the Scoops and Schemes Series, but worth reading on it’s own.
About the Author
Nancy MacCreery writes for people who enjoy action mysteries. Her books feature complex characters with a propensity for jumping into action in situations (often serendipitously stumbled upon) where little is known but evil must be uncovered and corrected for good. If you are intrigued by the challenges of our complex geopolitical world yet enjoy a touch of irreverent humor, romance and the antics of a group of intelligent, caring, sometimes fumbling and fun-loving cast of characters, Nancy’s books will offer you a great escape into a world of intrigue, trade-offs, and the crusade against evil. The Scoops and Schemes series includes Book 1 - The Essence, Book 2 - Unexpected Impact, and Book 3 - Cinnamon Bourbon and Deception. Book 4 is in progress! Nancy can often be found hiking, swimming, obsessing over her garden, reading and studying the political landscape, or dreaming up intricately woven plots while drifting on a boat at Jordan Lake, North Carolina while her husband fishes for that elusive “big one”.
