About the Book

April Jade wove an intricate and lucrative web of deceit behind her quiet and introvert façade. This worked very well until she fell in love, and more dramatically, until someone fell in love with her. Gerald “Jed” Green fell hopelessly in love one night with raunchy jazz singer Elle Carter, not realizing that this was just one of the many faces of April Jade. April, by day, cared for her terminally ill, but domineering, mother and felt unable to reveal her true self to him for fear of losing him. Jed, a successful businessman, enlisted the help of his top man, Rick, to trace this elusive woman of his dreams, with some very surprising and intriguing results. This is a new fictional book by Lee J. Morrison, the author of the Chrystabell trilogy, and takes on a new direction. This romantic detective story will delight you and entertain you with a resounding wow factor.
