The PREAH Secrets by K.B. Beaumaaks
An exotic animal hospital in a wealthy community in southwest Florida sets the scene for a new novel featuring sex, murder, secrets and deceit.– Port Royal Exotic Animal Hospital is more than a place where top-notch veterinarians treat animals of all shapes and sizes. The clinic, nestled in a wealthy southwest Florida community, provides the backdrop for a debut novel packed with secrets, lies and murder. Clinic owners Dr. Carston Spencer and his wife, Madison, hobnob with the best of society in Port Royal, but few residents know about the skeletons in their closet. And the drama doesn’t stop there.
“The PREAH Secrets” features one twist after another. Although Carston has been sober for 14 years, he lost his first wife and children thanks to drug addiction. And Madison, while playing the doting wife, is considering an affair with a hunky young cowboy who works at the clinic and is an amazing kisser but thinks she should wait until her divorce is final first. She discovers that Carston is keeping another secret – this time from her — and has been looking into selling the clinic, a deal worth millions because of the land.
Rumors of an incestuous affair involving two sisters and their father figure prominently in their self-defense claim in a trial over the murder of a clinic staff member’s father. The sensational nature of the trial may put Carston over the edge. But anything can happen when the state’s attorney, sheriff’s deputy, businessmen, ranch hands and a high-powered real estate agency are involved. An exotic bird breeder is just one of the colorful characters in this engrossing novel, the author’s first. One of her relationships provided inspiration for the story.
