The Fiction Writer

Book number one was a relative success, book number two only sold a few thousand copies and her latest novel can’t even make it to print. Add in a severe case of writer’s block along with boyfriend breakup, Olivia Fitzgerald has seen better days. When her agent offers her a gig as a ghostwriter she is amazed. An all expense paid trip to Malibu to write for a rich billionaire who was voted People’s Sexiest Man Alive - (twice!) - its a no brainer. Arriving in Malibu Olivia is initially shy when she first meets Henry Asherwood and even more tongue tied when this handsome charming man demands she call him ”Ash”. He has hired her to write the story of his beloved grandmother Emilia, who died years ago in a tragic fire. Ash discovered a series of her journals written in French and sent them to be authenticated and translated. He believes Daphne du Maurier, the famous author of Rebecca stole his grandmother’s story. Being the last and only heir of this mega wealthy family, Ash wants to vindicate his grandmother by publishing the truth. Strangely, every time they attempt to work Ash is easily distracted and they are off on an outing that feels a lot like a date. They talk about everything except the book and mysteriously a week later the journals still haven’t arrived. Olivia thinks the housekeeper is suspicious and her coffee may have been drugged as Ash continues to irresistibly woo her. Olivia doesn’t know if she is losing her mind or just her nerve. This book within a book within a book is a deliciously twisted mystery that I could not put down. Wholly original and superbly written, this five star fiction writer is a MUST READ! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
