Women’s Fiction/Thriller / Released Feb 10, 2017 by The Wild Rose Press

When crime strikes the neighborhood, a husband’s dark side comes to light, and a mother must find the strength to protect her children.
 
Jan Simmons never expected trouble to move into her quiet Charming Way cul-de-sac. Nor did she expect her husband Jeff’s weakness for fast money to drag their once happy family into danger. When her husband turns to crime, Jan, a people-pleaser with little self-worth, must release the death grip she has on her failing marriage for the sake of her children and draw on her inner strength. As Jan fights to free her family from a web of lies and deceit she also battles to save herself.
Bio:   Joy Smith merged a successful career in nonfiction with fiction writing when she discovered making up stories and characters was more fun than sugarcoating facts. In addition to Hear Me Roar, Joy is the author of a romantic suspense and a children’s book, as well as four how-to books and a cookbook. When she is not glued to her computer or contriving plots, she might be out sailing with her handsome captain, at home crocheting shawls and blankets to donate to those in need, or at the gym trying to work off those danged extra pounds. http://www.joysmith.net
