Spurn the Moon
Twenty-two-year-old Adrienne Talbot has no intention of rekindling her relationship with her estranged mother after landing in London. Instead, she plans to use her last summer before starting med school to travel all over Europe. Yet when a suitcase falls on her head while disembarking at Heathrow Airport, Adrienne has no choice but to call her A-list movie-star mother and beg for a place to stay while she recovers.
After an unenthusiastic welcome, Adrienne finds herself an “honored” guest at her mother’s engagement party, a status which comes all inclusive with an assigned bodyguard. His charming accent and crooked grin scream warnings about her summer plans going astray. Unfortunately for her, this is only the beginning of her troubles. A scandal breaks that night, which could destroy any possibility of reconciliation with her mother. It could even destroy the close-knit friendship Adrienne has with her younger sisters back home. This same scandal forces Adrienne to choose between seeking the truth or accepting a lie about one of the most important people in her life: her father.
Status: with editor now. To be queried to agents early 2017.
