Stars or Stripes 4th of July, novel
VERONICA FLEES JACK'S SUITE. DESPERATE TO HEAL HER PRIDE, she boards the first plane out of Australia and nabs a gig playing piano for the summer in the resort town, Hilton Head Island. She embraces the solitary life of musician by night, and by day works on her book and her tan. Not necessarily in that order. Immediately she's assigned the task of producing an American Idol type talent show to bring in a crowd on Independence Day. A month later she's borrowing thousands to pay a kidnapper's ransom. Misinterpreting a psychic's warning and playing love's fool, Veronica skips down a path as sinister as a gator's smile.
