Zoe Luce is a successful interior designer in the Arizona town of Whispering Springs who's developed an unusual career specialty-helping recently divorced clients redesign their homes, to help them forget the past and start anew. But Zoe knows that some things can't be covered up with a coat of paint. And when she senses that one of her clients may be hiding a dark secret, she enlists P.I. Ethan Truax to find the truth.
Working together, they solve the mystery . . . and barely escape with their lives. But Ethan's exquisite detection skills are starting to backfire on Zoe: she never wanted to let him find out about her former life; she never wanted to reveal her powerful, inexplicable gift for sensing the history hidden within a house's walls; she never wanted him to know that "Zoe Luce" doesn't really exist. She never wanted to fall in love with him.
Now, no matter how much she resists, Ethan may be her only hope-because the people she's been running from have found her. And just when Zoe dares to dream of a normal life and a future with the man she loves, her own past starts to shadow her every step-and threatens to take her back into a nightmare.
The practice of interior design has become ever more specialised as new technologies have expanded how designers can use light, space, colour and decoration. At the same time, the study of the interior - private, public and corporate - has become a complex field. Interior design is now a rich and sophisticated discipline which draws on many others: psychology, cultural theory, philosophy, gender studies, anthropology, and history, as well as design history, architecture, art and craft, furniture, and fashion.
The Binghamton Blues is a one-of-a-kind legal thriller. Vince DiMarco, a middle-aged divorced criminal defense attorney, practices in partnership with his son, Mike. They turn to Vince's father, eighty-two-year-old Santino the family patriarch, a retired defense lawyer for wisdom and advice. While Santino and Mike are living in peace, Vince is in turmoil, living at a lower standard than ever before because of his recent divorce. His long-lost first love, Renee, reappears after twenty-seven years, only to be involved in murder, arson, and drug conspiracy. It's up to Vince, Mike, and Santino to save her, and just as importantly as it turns out to save their own lives as they unravel a multistate drug cartel. While the villain flies about the country in a gleaming white jet, Vince and Mike use their vintage Beechcraft to cover the thousands of miles to which the case takes them-not without near disaster. Vince's love for Renee is rekindled during the defense, despite her involvement with the antagonist Carl, head of the cartel. Conflicts arise throughout the novel between Vince, Mike, and Santino as they try, but fail, to maintain the boundaries between business and family, love and the law.
