The Deconstruction and Death of a Natural Beauty
When Connell meets Ronalee Rayner, he believes she's the most beautiful and captivating girl he's ever met. A winsome and gentle spirit. Someone seemingly loved by all around her. But he learns that all is not well in Ronalee's world. And the more he learns, the more concerned he gets. Why would anyone thrust a delicate soul like Ronalee into harm's way? Can Connell get there in time to save her? More
Det. Ty Connell has never met anyone as lovely, gentle, exquisite, and captivating as Ronalee Rayner. A truly breathtaking beauty. He meets her at a friend's fashion photography studio, a model who has come in for a shoot. The friend says that she's the sweetest girl he's worked with and hasn't an enemy in the usually catty back-biting world of high fashion. Like so many others, Connell is captivated but also frozen by her beauty and he doesn't talk with her. But she stays in his mind, and maybe his heart.
He comes across her again at an event at a downtown mall, performing in a fashion show that is part of the activities. This time he does speak with her and he does what every man does -- he falls completely under her spell. Her voice, her mannerism, her ways, all with a softness not really of this harsh world.
He arranges other times to "bump into her" at other events and he begins to get a glimpse behind the easy smile and the glamour and bustle of her fashion world. And what he sees is a sad girl. Why is that? What would make this enchanting girl sad?
He begins to make inquiries and, as he finds out more about her personal life, he sees a girl in trouble and headed for more. He decides that he must intervene, but the clock is racing. Will time run out? Can he save an innocent beauty from the forces of destruction?

I RATE THIS ONE “AMAZING!”
“Love this book! Well written, drew me in quickly and what a page turner. I found myself starting to really root for one of the lesser characters and was quite satisfied when I found some other figures in the book did too. Action, comedy, mystery, urban and street smart. I want a sequel to this book and I want it NOW!”

WRITING IS RIGHT ON TARGET! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AUTHOR!
