What if a psychic told you that you were destined to have the kind of love about which stories are written … “But not until you’re ready.”
What if she was right?
As a teen mom, already ass-branded by one husband both domineering and dumb as meat locker beef, Elaine stutter-stepped to independence via jobs typing letters and dialing phones for a series of mouth-breathers who believed a woman’s place was under the desk, spit-shining their assets. A couple of decades later she had, by god, scratched out a role in the corporate testicle festival where she earned fat, man-sized paychecks. Bought herself some respect and vindication. But her personal life was a dispiriting trail of relationship road kill. Her one faithful love walked on four legs and woofed for her breakfast.
Desperate for a peek at her future Elaine consulted astrologer-psychic Allie B, who whipped out her Tarot cards, did her California woo-woo thing and sprang the good news: … storybook love … when you’re ready.
Enter Jake Kingston. Internationally acclaimed surgeon with a 100-acre ranch in the wine country, two Ferraris in his several garages, and enough love-life failures to make them as compatible as a can of whip cream and a Brazilian wax.
Was Jake the key to the love she sought? Yes. But in a way no one—except the psychic— could have imagined.
Karma, Deception, and a Pair of Red Ferraris is a transformational journey of healing. The story of Elaine achieving the self-esteem she had always faked. Of finding the courage to open her heart and give the kind of love she so yearned to receive.
