The Very English Lady

The Very English Lady

Laura Mitchell is an English-born widow living in an upscale Los Angeles condominium complex. Early one morning her quiet, uneventful life is shattered when she comes upon a man’s naked body in the swimming pool—eerily echoing her discovery, a year earlier, of her husband John’s body in the same pool . . . John Mitchell had suffered a massive heart attack while swimming. The police are asking a lot of questions and a neighbor—a friend of John’s, but who she hardly knew—wants to buy her late husband’s laptop computer, ostensibly as a gift to a nephew. Why? What is happening?

Both a “page-turner” mystery and a surprising romance, Laura’s quest to discover the truth takes her on a strange journey in her emotions as she remembers the past, and in reality as she determines to trace John’s business activities. In her search for the real John Mitchell, she rediscovers herself . . . her long-suppressed talents and desires . . . and the promise of a new and more fulfilling future.
