Dumped for a younger woman. Fired for insubordination. Drowning in the money pit that's her lakefront fixer upper.
There's no roadmap for starting over. Divorced and on her own after twenty-something years, Kenora Tedesco's self-confidence has hit bottom. And there are so many questions—about herself, her job and whether love with the right man will be in her future. Can she afford to stay single? Is the price of settling back into her old comfort zone - sticking with what she knows - too high?
When an eleventh-hour interview lands her a job as a private investigator, the former library manager figures her financial and career troubles are finally over. Now she's got choices. But will she make the right ones?
Kenora is a clever, passionate female sleuth, but she has trouble following someone else's rules. And instead of a snazzy wardrobe and movie-inspired intrigue, danger threatens to derail her new life. She has her identity stolen, gets trapped in a storage locker by a lovesick embezzler and becomes entangled in a complex case of international fraud. Being declared dead by a drugstore pharmacist was the last thing she expected. Rookie blunders put a promising second-chance romance with Jake Barclay, a retired cop—and her new boss—at risk.
Being a competent P.I. means she can't make things up as she goes along, hoping for the best. What she can do well is take informed risks. Follow her intuition. Learn to ditch the fear, trust her judgment, and not look back.
This contemporary debut novel features strong female and male protagonists. Each of them has baggage and is skittish about romantic entanglements but they long to kindle a mature love that lasts.
There's a supporting cast of quirky characters, plenty of witty dialogue, hooks in every chapter's opening and closing scenes, plot twists and turns, and steamy encounters between Kenora and Jake.
Kenora Reinvented propels readers into a binge-worthy whodunit that will keep them engaged until the last page.
