Man from the Lazy Susan, by Alicia Martin
Alicia owns Rubee Z Salon & Day Spa in Dallastown and is a horse enthusiast and avid writer.
We met through author and illustrator Donna M. Ferguson of Leader Heights. Alicia accomplished what we all dream of—she queried a publisher about her manuscript, and got a request for two chapters—without getting the normal 60-100 rejection letters first. We’ll hear more about her journey in a future newsletter.
In Man from the Lazy Susan, Jess McCoy must confront the demons surrounding her attorney husband’s death years before.
While spinning the Lazy Susan for ingredients, her daughter and nanny concoct a potion to help Jess find a new husband. That night a sexy Australian horse-whisperer from the Susan River gets stranded at her farm because of a storm. Is it fate? Or did the girls’ potion deliver him?
Meanwhile, FBI agent Sam Quaid is following a human-trafficking ring that leads him to the doorstep of his old flame, Jess McCoy, and her adopted daughter Anna. His investigation will uncover secrets that could rip Jess’s world apart. Sam must choose between his job, the safety of hundreds of helpless enslaved victims, and the woman he’s always loved.

To save her sister from a dire financial predicament, Lilly agrees to marry him. Strangely, the man she shares a bed with is nothing like the vulgar creature she endures during the day.
