WITNESS is a fast-paced contemporary romantic suspense novel set in Isla Concha, a Florida beach town along the Gulf of Mexico. The story opens when an extreme sports model goes on the run after witnessing more than the murderer had in mind. Both the killer and the police chase after her, causing her to fight for both the truth... and her life.
Davis Hamilton is a divorced police detective, struggling to balance his career and his personal life. The high profile murder case couldn’t have come across his desk at a worse time--his partner is so pregnant she’s about to pop, and the sole witness is not only a suspect herself... she’s Laurel Summers, famous for surfing killer waves in equally killer designer bikinis, and known in his heart as the one who got away.
Laurel Summers decided the day Davis Hamilton dumped her for a society wife, that she didn’t need a man in order to Be Somebody. She lived up her daredevil career with glamorous international photo shoots until a family tragedy brought her back to her home town to face the past and re-think the future. Stumbling over a dead rap star wasn’t supposed to be part of that equation, and neither was running from a killer... right into the arms of the last man on earth she’d dare to trust.
This is a character sketch, not a hook.
You're going to need MUCH more complex characters and nuanced plot to get past the slush pile.
