Guillebeau is back with a romantic comedy of love‚ loss and murder.
Paul was a quiet outdoorsman trying to hang on to a difficult relationship with his complicated and volatile artist wife Marta until Marta’s bike is found crumpled on a bridge‚ her body missing. The police suspect murder or suicide but Paul‚ finding a message in her last painting‚ knows Marta faked her death so her paintings would become famous.
Marta’s paintings soar in value‚ and now Paul’s quiet life includes lecturing on the life of the woman he knows is not dead and searching for the woman who left him. Until a $5M life insurance policy Marta took out shortly before her death shows up‚ followed by a Native American enforcer from a casino demanding that Paul pay $5M the enforcer says Marta stole from his casino. A gallery in Arizona claims to have a new collection of Marta’s paintings — paintings that Paul knows nothing about.
Paul goes to investigate‚ followed by an insurance investigator and the enforcer. And Rue‚ a young new age woman sure that the universe has sent her to help Paul move on from his dead wife.
