Maggie has found herself in the middle of a missing persons case! I wasn't sure if I should have the victim killed off or found bloody, battered and bruised. I posted the question on FaceBook and my followers voiced their opinions. Bloody, Battered and Bruised it is! Look for the follow up novel (to The Liberation of Maggie Weintraub) - Maggie Weintraub - Keep Your Back to the Wind - 2012 release. Thanks everyone. READ ON! And, Enjoy the Journey! melanie
