This is
an intense page-turner, a gut-punch twist-filled story about a woman who has
confidence in herself, believes she’s a good judge of character, and has filled
her life with people she can trust. She’s right, but she’s also very, very
wrong. Readers will have a time of it trying to decide who to watch closest.
Hard Focus
Where do you place your trust when your own instincts betray you?

Connie Rowe is a receptionist at a respected legal firm. She’s a little bit
sassy, a lotta bit happy, has good friends, and is adored by her neighbors.

Life is good.

She’s got a boyfriend she enjoys spending time with. He can be a little
intense, but he’s got a lot going on in his own life, sorting out his young
daughter and nightmare of an ex.

Life is grand.

“Trust your gut.” That’s what Connie’s police officer father told her often,
training his daughter to believe in herself through the years.

But … what happens when you can’t? When your intuition lies?

What happens when things come into Hard Focus?

What Others Are Saying
Excerpts of Goodreads Reviews
“ This is
a page turner. As you read on, your assumptions are challenged as things are
not quite what they seem. If you want a story that keeps you on the edge of
your seat, this book won’t disappoint. A full 5* read.”
Wow was this an interesting read… Some
twists and turns that have you on the edge of your seat… some great characters
who have great chemistry… Really made me think about the subject matter and how
it affects people. I enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it
This book
kept me turning the pages wondering what was going to happen. I am usually
pretty good at guessing twists but not with this book. 5 stars.

 ✺ My Review:

A thrilling romance suspense that’s well written with terrific characters. The story pulled me in from the beginning and it’s an easy read in a mystery noir style that’s superb. It’s a cautionary tale about a sensitive subject matter with devastating results on so many levels and it’s heartbreaking. The mystery was revealed at about the mid point and then it moved into a thriller waiting for the next shoe to drop. You just knew Jonas wasn’t finished. Connie is a strong, smart heroine and wonderful in her resolve to be true to herself. I loved Cole right from the beginning. Who doesn’t love a hunky fireman hero? And I do mean hero in the true sense of the word. He was a hero to little Addy, his sister and Connie. For me there were a few minor inconsistencies with the characters and the plot. Like, with Connie’s intelligence and education she would have been more than a receptionist. Connie’s family and their dynamics was a fabulous part of the story. I wish Addy had made a couple of appearances toward the end. She is so cute. Overall this is a fantastic read that draws attention to the eye-opening fallacies in our laws without being too preaching or in your face. This is my first read by this author but it won’t be my last. I really like her style!

Author Bio
Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an
early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library,
devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she
says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and
found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available,
I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”
A hockey fan, hiker, gamer, and single mom of a special needs son, she
embraces her inner geek and has been working in the tech field for a
publishing company for a couple decades.
Music is a driving passion, and she says, “I love music of nearly any
genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap,
hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing
through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live
music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars
[read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection
of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”
