Domestic Violence Awareness

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month in the USA. Apparently in Canada, it is in November. Go figure. Nothing wrong with having two months of awareness.

Reading

I have done several reading lists that highlight domestic violence:

She was Dying Anyway

The book I am releasing next week, She was Dying Anyway, also highlights domestic abuse issues.

Private Investigator Zachary Goldman took on the case as a favor to his ex-wife, Bridget. It should have been cut and dried. But the deeper he looks into the death of cancer patient Robin Salter, the more convinced Zachary becomes that Bridget’s suspicions were correct. Bridget is determined to discover what happened to her friend… and what was thought to be death by natural causes becomes an active police investigation.

No one else wants Zachary involved in the investigation, not the police, Robin Salter’s family, or her boyfriend. No one but Bridget. What does it really matter, when Robin was dying anyway? Facing a wall of silence, Zachary digs into Robin’s past, determined to find the truth.

Zachary instantly went into full-blown panic. Her anger and criticism he was used to dealing with. Even her blame. But her tears were something he didn’t know how to handle. Bridget never cried. Even when she had told him about her diagnosis, it had been with dry eyes and a flat, stoic voice.

There is no shortage of suspects, with Reg herself at the front of the line.
