A Mighty Good Man by Rebecca E. Neely [Blurb Blitz & Giveaway]




A Mighty Good Man
by Rebecca E. Neely




~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:

‘Hank’ Jerry…Her personal and professional life on the skids, a family emergency forces her to return to the small town, and the aunt, she left behind.

Jack ‘Gent’ Darcy…Fresh out of prison, he’s bent on cutting ties with the Creds, but when you're a war counselor in a national gang, they don't let you just walk away.

Injured and on the run, Jack lands on Hank's doorstep, and makes her a proposition she can’t refuse: write his story about life inside one of the most powerful gangs in the country. It’s simple – she’ll get her career groove back, and he’ll bury the gang, then disappear – his version of freedom.

Only problem is, they can’t help falling for each other, and they’ve both got something to hide that could blow up in their faces. With time running out and gang enforcers closing in, will the trust they’ve forged survive the ultimate test?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT

Well, he’d wanted hidden, and now he was hidden. Her Aunt Henry would’ve done the same, she knew. Certainly the roundup of misfits who’d odd-jobbed their way through here over the years bore testament to that. If he needed a doctor, she’d see to it. But the police, and whoever was after him? That was his concern, not hers. Hank wanted no part of it.

He could just park it in the cooler for a few minutes, stay out of sight while the help clocked in, and be on his merry way. She’d make sure of it.

Fists pounded on the door she’d just locked. She jerked to attention, pushing off the cooler. “Pretty sure that ain’t a Jehovah’s Witness,” she muttered. Shit! This wasn’t part of the deal. Now what?

The pounding continued. Whoever was on the other side wasn’t going away. If she didn’t answer the door it would only make things worse, most likely for her and ‘Cooler Man.’ Hank forced her feet to move. Act calm. Think calm.

Just in case that didn’t work, she unearthed the Smith & Wesson .32 revolver her aunt kept stashed in one of the utensil drawers, and shoved it in her pants pocket.

Adrenaline and fear pulsed through her, propelling her forward. One foot in front of the other. No big deal. She’d answer the door, see about the fist pounder and then he or she, or they, would leave. Or she could get shot. Yeah, right. No big deal.

  1. Hello! Thank you so much for hosting me today - I really appreciate it! It's great to be here at SBM Book Obsession - lots of great books to choose from! I love a good romantic suspense story, one that sucks you in from the first page... in writing A Mighty Good Man, I created a setting in Mighty Ricky's that reminded me of my parents' restaurant. Until I was about sixteen, I grew up in the family business, working, cooking and eating. I was a lucky kid! I met tons of interesting people, learned how to make change at a young age, and garnered the recipe for the secret sauce... :)

    Join me today! I'd love to hear about your favorite 'go to' diner fare, and your fave reads! Take care and happy reading!

    Sincerely,
    Rebecca

  2. Hi Rebecca, my fave diner, The Liberty on Winton Road in Rochester, NY, serves The Best poached eggs and The Best home fries. Ever. I'm sure everything else is great, too, but that's my go-to meal at The Liberty Diner.
