Vicki Allen's Latest: Drink One to Me, Christian Bennett
Born youngest of four children into a large family of old money, American photographer Abigail Christensen entered a world already expecting great things of her, and spent her entire life trying to conform, striving to please a family she knew she never could.
Finally breaking free of stifling conventionality, she travels with her brother to Mexico, drifting from province to province as she captures photographs for an upcoming exhibit, wishing she had settled for the monotony of her previous lifestyle when she attracts the attention of legendary drug lord, Esai Molinero.
A story of friendship, love and loss, For Molly is set in central & northeast Louisiana, and centered around the book's heroine, Ashley Stewart: a typical small-town girl, feisty, strong, and independent, secure in the love of her family, and surrounded by a close-knit circle of lifelong friends. When a speeding truck erases the only truth she's ever known, Ashley flees her hometown, denying her past, ultimately meeting up with the one man who holds the key to her destiny.

Highly Anticipated Sequel to "For Molly"
My, my...how quickly time had flown. For Ashley Stewart, it had passed by in a flash. It hardly seemed possible that thirteen years had gone by since she fled Oklahoma on the heels of a nasty divorce, returning to Louisiana to regain her sanity and raise her child.
She had settled into a life of quiet contentment, running the family business and hanging out with old friends, rekindling old relationships while remembering what about them she loved most. She rediscovered romance when she married Jack, the one man who understood her---and loved her anyway.
Ashley felt safe within the boundaries of her hometown, believing that nothing could ever hurt her again. However, her security was a smokescreen, a delicate facade of which Ashley was completely unaware. She thought she was protected--- untouchable in her happy little world--- but she was wrong. Little did she know of the danger that lurked just beyond the trees.

"It was a curse — her mother’s curse — a curse passed on to Molly by fate and birthright, marked by a long and tragic path of dead men, crushed dreams and broken hearts, and Molly was determined to beat it...
So far, she wasn’t off to a great start."
The Other Brother takes up where The Return left off, following Molly LeNoir as she leaves home to begin what promised to be a bright future. When a twist of fate alters her path, Molly is plunged into unfamiliar territory, struggling to make sense of it all while in the midst of some highly unusual company:
Cora, the crusty grocery store owner who dispenses love & advice with a salty tongue & a heart of gold;
Jade, the recovering New Orleans hooker, hell-bent on making amends with her family & getting her life back on track; and
Kevin, the Atlanta-based news reporter whose link to Molly’s past threatens to destroy them both.
