Are You in a Book Club?

If you were wondering where I've been, I have been writing a new commercial fiction novel for the past year. Now that the manuscript has been rewritten and polished and rewritten again, I'm looking for some great women who would be willing to read the book and be in a focus group with me to discuss it. If that's you, email me at maureen.ocrean(at)gmail.com. So all I ask is that you read the book in a month, keep it private, participate in a call or speak with me if you can't make it. If you do spot any of those pesky typos, I'm happy to know, but that's not what I need right now. I have a PDF for those of you with ipads or tablets. As a heads up, there are a few steamy parts in the story, so if that's not your cup of tea, I understand. So what is the book about?

Dr. Bridie O’Malley is a driven and independent 38 year old, world class veterinarian on the verge of a career breakthrough. With a hopeful running in the Kentucky Derby, Bridie has a steamy past she wants to stay hidden; if you believe that last night is the past.

When her younger brother Mickey, an autistic savant, is kidnapped and her father is found beaten on the railroad tracks in Louisville, Kentucky, Bridie, must do the one thing she hates the most: ask for help.

Days before the big race a young punk delivers a message—pay up on her father’s long overdue debt to the Irish Mob. In a desperate search for Mickey, Bridie enlists her life-long friends in town for a reunion: an FBI agent, a fashion editor and her racing partner, to journey with her into the criminal underworld. Fraught with truths of self-discovery, Bridie must unravel the mystery of her Irish family’s secrets relatives.
