The Crystal Fig Affair

A novel by

Is it a curse... or true love?
When a man she barely knows proposes and shoves a big diamond ring on her finger, English professor Ellie Scandal thinks it's a joke. But when he is gunned down on her doorstep and with his last breath warns her that the ring is cursed, she panics, especially since the ring won't come off and now she's the one being shot at and chased.
When the police dismiss her story she turns to her colleague Professor Leo Flannigan for help. Leo is a former policeman and author of a best-selling detective series, and with him by her side, Ellie has to outrun the bad guys, unlock the secret to an ancient curse, cut down on salt in her diet - in case the ring is stuck just because she's retaining water, and try not to lose her heart along the way. This romantic comedy is a madcap adventure that takes our sleuths on a merry chase filled with romance, humor, and mystery. Oh, and did I mention the curse?
But don't worry, like all good romantic capers, love promises to be the answer to everything.
