Slippery Slope
by Candice Poarch

Amy Stewart’s marriage outranks all others and her life is as perfect as it can get—until she discovers her husband having an affair with a much younger woman. When his lover is found dead Amy becomes the prime suspect.

Recently retired Army Colonel, Neil Baker, has no doubt of the beauty’s guilt, even if the police find discrepancies in the evidence. However, when her husband’s murder occurs while she’s with Neil, he’s forced to reevaluate her claim of innocence.

Discovering her own life in danger and desire between her and Neil growing hot, can the two band together to weave through the maze of secrets and lies to find the truth?

Candice Poarch takes pride in crafting believable stories featuring African-American heroes and heroines.  The characters in her books demonstrate a strong sense of community and family support.  She firmly believes that everyday life in America (whether small town or major metropolitan city) has its own rich rewards.  She also likes telling stories that will leave today’s busy reader feeling refreshed and hopeful—not always an easy task, she says, but well worth the challenge.

Her fourteenth book, BITTERSWEET, (Dafina, July, 2006) deals with the heart, family, extended family and community.  "I really enjoyed Bittersweet... romance, comedy, mystery and intrigue...I would definitely recommend Bittersweet as a book club selection."  —Karen Monroe, Woman2Woman Book Club member.  Candice Poarch’s fifteenth book, SWEET SOUTHERN COMFORT, will be published by Kimani Press in November, 2006.
