Teaser Tuesday: Fortune's Deadly Descent


We finally wrench to a stop in a village so remote it appears unreachable except by train.  A sign reads "Saint-Corbenay" above a vacant concrete platform.
 --  Fortune's Deadly Descent by Audry Braun.  She really knows how to set a scene!

This is the second book in a series featuring Celia Hagen that started with A Small Fortune.  Braun is the pen name of novelist Deborah Reed, author of Carry Yourself Back to Me, a Best Book of 2011 Amazon Editors' Pick.

PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: Memories of her dire past fade as Celia Hagen enjoys life in Switzerland as a best-selling author, surrounded by an extended family, her beloved Benicio, and their imaginative young son Benny. But when Benny disappears from a train during an unexpected stop in the French Provencal countryside, Celia suspects her past may not be buried after all. With Benny gone, she quickly realizes her life wasn’t nearly as idyllic as she believed. Infuriated by the unorthodox search efforts of Interpol and the French police, Celia, along with her older son Oliver, undertakes her own search, only to find that the village where Benny vanished has its own chilling history, and her interference in the case will have grave and irreversible consequences.

In the follow up to Audrey Braun’s best-selling debut, A Small Fortune, Celia discovers just how quickly everyone she loves can spiral toward a life—or death—that none of them could have seen coming.
