A Mighty Good Man

Rebecca E.

Hank Jerry has hit the rough patch in the road and needs to get back on her feet. Jack Darcy is running from his past - and literally does just that - running right into Hank one morning. He leaves her seconds to make a choice that will change her life forever, and as usual, she takes a giant risk. The decision leads to their lives becoming permanently entwined and puts them both in extreme danger. They will use each other but they will both regret the decisions they make, until destiny makes the choice for them. They only need to survive.

A journalist is always looking for the big story and when it drops onto one's back porch it has to be divine intervention, even when you don’t believe in that kind of stuff. The big story is the heart of the tale being told in "A Mighty Good Man." Jack has the story and he wants to give it to Hank. As characters go, this couple is dynamic and spunky. Opposites attract and everything happening is a balance of opposition forces coming together to create a story that keeps the reader on their toes. Some predictability in the actions of the gang members detract remotely from an otherwise brilliant thriller. The undeniable attraction between a story, a journalist, a war leader, a feisty aunt, and a home town diner keeps the Herbs de Provence flowing in Fiddler’s Elbow.
