Revenge for Old Times Sake by Kris Neri (Cherokee McGhee)
Tracy Eaton, a mystery writer and daughter of Hollywood stars, is married to a straight old money attorney. Drew and Tracy’s families are at opposite ends of the dysfunctional spectrum. Revenge begins with Drew's behaving very out of character by punching his boss in the face. Of course, his boss turns up floating face down in the Eaton pool the next day and Drew is arrested. Tracy sets out to prove her husband is innocent.
Meanwhile, Drew’s mother arrives in town. Charlotte has never liked Tracy or her family (maybe it has to do with the black eye Tracy’s mother gave her at the wedding?). Charlotte hires Drew’s ex-flame, Cee Cee, to defend him but she is acting peculiar. Is Cee Cee trying to get Drew back or to get revenge? Like any good screwball story, there are so many twists and turns it actually becomes believable. The characters are zany and a little—actually a lot—crazy. It is a fast and fun read—perfect for the beach or pool!
