Pies, Lies and a Last Goodbye
by Maria Grazia Swan

A missing horse. An absent heartthrob’s disappearing wife. A catering gig making pie for highflying gamblers.

Monica’s got her fingers in too many pies, all of them leading to trouble.

Tristan Dumont, the hunky millionaire and very married horseman asks Monica for a favor. Keep an eye on his beloved appaloosa till he gets back in town. As usual, she jumps to please him without thinking twice.

When Tristan’s horse and then his wife go missing, social media starts to hum with gossip that Monica was the last to see both victims alive.

Things continue to spin out of control, like the wheels on her beloved hot pink Fiat, and Monica has more on her hands than baking pies for a derby.

Can Monica clear her name and save the innocent victims before Mr. Dumont returns home? Because the game is rigged and Monica is in danger of losing all that she cherishes most.

Maria Grazia Swan's Bio

Maria Grazia Swan was born in Italy, but this rolling stone has definitely gathered no moss. She lived in Belgium, France, Germany, in beautiful Orange County, California where she raised her family, and is currently at home in Phoenix, Arizona—but stay tuned for weekly updates of Where in the World is Maria Grazia Swan? As a young girl, her vivid imagination predestined her to be a writer. She won her first literary award at the age of fourteen while living in Belgium. As a young woman Maria returned to Italy to design for—ooh-la-la—haute couture. Once in the U.S. and after years of concentrating on family, she tackled real estate. These days her time is devoted to her deepest passions: writing and helping people find happiness. Maria loves travel, opera, good books, hiking, and intelligent movies (if she can find one, that is). When asked about her idea of a perfect evening, she favors stimulating conversation, spicy Italian food and perfectly chilled Prosecco—but then, who doesn’t? Maria has written short stories for anthologies, articles for high profile magazines and numerous blogs tackling love and life. She engaged her editorial and non-fiction skills for Mating Dance: Rituals for Singles Who Weren’t Born Yesterday.
