You have that phone because you want people to call you. You have that sister because she takes care of you and you take care of her and it s always both and never neither. You have that boyfriend because he makes you realize that your present has a future. You let all the world come into your life because it fulfills you and it surprises you and it keeps you alive. Except sometimes the opposite is true. Sometimes all the innocent acts and good intentions and happy expectations lead not to life but to death....
Xs has it all: seX, eXcitement, eXcess, an eXecution, eXtreme situations and eXtraordinary twists. Allie Armington’s back and she’s gotten herself miXed up in a police investigation of a seX and drugs operation run by an elite East Coast monied set. More great characters. More hold-your-breath moments. More surprises. If you liked Anacacho, you’ll love Xs. It’s eXcellent.
Raised in upper-class Manhattan society, she has settled in small- town New Mexico, created a prospering counseling practice and is preparing to marry her love, Mac Brantley, a successful doctor and the younger son of a prominent local family. But everything starts to unravel the day Mac “kidnaps” Julia and flies her to an idyllic wilderness setting for a romantic mid-week picnic. Lightning strikes - literally - and though her injury is minor, everything begins to change.
This time she’s in the Adiron- dacks, and it’s really personal. A long time ago Allie was summarily ordered away from her extended family’s summer enclave. Her return is nothing like what she expected. Instead of the tranquil retreat she remembers, the place is a murder site. Visiting Hotanawa was always a dream to remember. This visit turns into a nightmare she’d rather forget.
