Publisher's Summary

Cocktails, con men, conspiracy! Slip into the secret society of the Travellers, modern-day gypsies who will stop at nothing to win their deadly con games.

Maggie Leman leads a fairytale life in California’s Newport Beach. But when cheating golfer husbands from her Club get knocked off, along with the Travellers muscling into Newport Beach society, Maggie fears she’s bitten into a poison apple, spewing its venom into her life.

To stop this deadly flow, Maggie, ex-marketing exec, now Country Club Mom, launches an investigation into these sordid affairs. What she finds is shocking. It appears Newport blue blood is tinged with red. Does this deadly tide bleed from the Travellers? Or from the upper crust of societal elite? Worse, can Maggie stop this deadly flow...or will her questions make her the next victim?

HOW ENTERTAINING!!!! Must listen! Amazing narrator!

I must admit going in I thought this would be some cheesy plot about rich wives killing their husbands. BUT NO! You must check it out. The suspense is there and the narrator Annika Connor commits to each character voice faithfully! So you can visualize who these characters are from personality to clothes to voice confidence. I will be looking up both writer and narrator to find more books by them! I hope you enjoy! I sure did!

Disposable Lives

Maggie suspects her husband of cheating and is on a mission to find the truth. Only the next day he ends up dead. And shes at the top of the suspect list because she has been MIA all day. Now shes dealing with a rich spoiled cop, who acts like a brat. The story will keep you on your toes with twist and turns wondering who is in this scam and who can be trusted. Nice job on the narration. I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Suspense, mystery and romance

Both the author and narrator were new to me. The premise of this book appealed to me. I enjoyed the twists, but found parts of the story confusing with reference to travelers and gypsies. I enjoyed the imagery in this book. The audiobook was professionally recorded and didn't have any quality issues. The narrator added to my enjoyment with her enthusiasm and performance.

Starts slow, but becomes great after all.



There is no question about it, Leslie Kohler is a great writer !
The problem for me is that I’m totally not into romantic books and I would have put it down if I have not promised to review the audiobook which I’m glad that I did because after all that romantic stuff the action began and this book got everything in it including detectives, secret society and some cool twists.
Using Annika Connor to narrate the book was an excellent decision, together they created a beautiful audiobook !

Even so that I’m not into erotic books, this one is much much more and I because of this I can,
Fully recommend it for all.


I believe that my review is honest even so that I got the audiobook for free.

Not for me

I was gifted this book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review.
I found it hard to finish this book. I thought the story could have been a great mystery but it was so hard to listen to the teenage hormone driven sexuallity of these charaters. Annika Conner does a wonderful job of reading this book. I would give Annika 5 stars.

Travellers? Gypsies?

Maggie Leman's life as high society in Newport Beach abruptly changes. She finds evidence that her husband may be having an affair. After confronting him and hearing his side of the story, he is killed before being able to verify it. Maggie becomes the main suspect. The plot thickens and is packed with thrilling twists-and-turns and the unique, colorful characters of the secret society of the Scottish Travellers. I found this an entertaining story.

Entertaining and suspenseful

I enjoyed the suspense in this book. Shady, downright nasty characters mingling with high society. Murder, greed and who is really who they seem to be? I kept listening to find out. Some humor, mystery, several twists and turns and controlled cat fights make this an entertaining book. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
