Zena’s Beginning is the story of a child who rises above poverty. She doesn’t have any money, but she has a dream – the dream of a beautiful pair of shoes. Little by little, her young mind catches a vision, and the simplest of things come together to open doors. A brilliant idea blossoms into a resourceful business, and a new mindset will transform her outlook on life and pave the way to a bright future for the young entrepreneur.
Her journey from poverty and despair to hope and ambition will inspire you to seize the day and go for your dreams.
She looked at me – and I knew. She needed me. I saw past her striking beauty, her royal bearing, I looked into the blue eyes that were deep, that changed with her feelings, encompassed as many shades as the blues of the oceans. People see the beauty, but I see the depth of her soul. Name's Lake, Inspector Lake. I’m an Irish Wolfhound, I stand 37 inches at the shoulder and I can kill a wolf at a dead run.
The more you know about Audrey Carlisle-Holt, the more you like her, but the less you ever want to have walked in her shoes. Denim jumpers and blood make her queasy, so how my very chic owner went from a homeschooled student to a detective bounty hunter is quite as much a mystery as the one she is solving.
We’re undercover in Brownsville to trace the killer of a young teenage girl, but the persistent attention of two charming local bachelors reveals in my usually clear-sighted and objective owner a deep yearning for a different life. She must endeavor to silence her dreams and press on as she uncovers connections to more chilling murders.
The clock is ticking. Her past makes her a match to the victims, and the killer knows it.
