https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/703691 


The Daughter-in-law Syndrome investigates the complicated relationship causing much friction between Grandmother Edna Deane and her daughter-in-law Arla. In addition it focuses on the sometimes tumultuous partnership between Arla and her husband Ric.

Arla Deane sometimes likens her marriage to undergoing daily psychological warfare. Husband Ric will never voice an opinion, and puts his mother Edna up high on a pedestal. Arla is sick of always feeling that she comes in at only second best to her mother-in-law, who much to Arla’s fury is never told anything by Ric or his sisters that she would not want to hear.

This novel explores the husband/wife, mother/son, and mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationships. After twenty eight years of marriage, Arla, the daughter-in-law, is at the end of her tether and persuades a reluctant Ric to accompany her for marriage guidance. As they look back over their lives with Counsellor Toni Beecher, Arla slowly comes to realise her own failings, and eventually discovers the long-hidden reason why Ric will never utter a cross word to his mother.

Also, adding to Arla’s stress is the fact that her son Stuart will soon be marrying Ria, a girl whom Arla feels is just looking for a free ride. Arla is convinced that Ria will be no asset to Stuart at all; her new daughter-in-law just wants to be a mother and has no intention of ever working again once the babies start to arrive. After visiting Stuart and Ria for Sunday lunch, Arla is convinced that her son is making the biggest mistake of his life…

INDIE AUTHOR PROMOTION.


For January I am featuring the author Sarah Stuart and her book 'Sweet Temptation: The Agony and the Ecstasy of Passion.  This fourth book in Sarah’s Royal Command series came out a few weeks ago, and Readers' Favorite reviewed it 5 stars pre-publication.


Sarah Stuart is an award-winning author and a book reviewer for Readers’ Favorite. Her passions are theatre, music, wildlife, history, and travel, all of which come together in the Royal Command series. She writes because she enjoys it, and as a commitment to ecology, 100% of her royalties are donated to charities helping endangered species worldwide. Typically, this might be reforestation to provide suitable habitats.


The settings of her books, the Western Highlands of Scotland, London’s Theatre-Land, and Europe, are vivid; Sarah has lived, or spent a considerable time in these places. She uses insider knowledge gained from working in theatres to create the showbiz setting. 


Sweet Temptation: The Agony and the Ecstasy of Passion, by Sarah Stuart.



Evie Taylor is a career girl with no time for men, but she has a secret passion for Michael Marsh, the unattainable world-famous singer, The Diamond Superstar. Michael has been widowed for two years and the young detective who helped close the case on his wife's murder still haunts his dreams. He doesn't expect to find a deadly enemy in Evie's mother.


Teenage Greta, jealous of her adored father paying attention to Evie, makes a dangerous contact in an Internet chatroom who plans to trap her into his sex-trafficking network. The Spy, a journalist hell-bent on destroying Michael, sets out to prove he has an incestuous relationship with his eldest daughter, he encourages his adult twins to sleep together, and he is responsible for appalling injuries inflicted on Greta.


Can Evie defeat the virus intent on her death, The Spy, and her mother, to win the heart of the man who's turned her life upside-down? What does he mean by "I'm no innocent, no stranger to sin?" Should she trust him?
