Three women’s lives interweave as they struggle to navigate life and love. And the effects of a meteorite.

Patricia Steitz, a successful romance writer, is flabbergasted when Rudi Singlewood shows up at one of her book signings and initiates a summer romance. She worries that the fantasies she’s harbored regarding the world-renown Broadway actress may prevent her from accepting who Rudi really is. She relates her fears to her best friend, Marcia Struthers, a successful Manhattan litigator.

Knowing that Patricia has dreamed of Rudi for years, Marcia urges her to give the actress a chance by getting to know who she is behind her public persona. While working a high-profile case, Marcia must confront her resurging feelings for lead opposing counsel, Lexie Yamin, and the appearance of an unrequited love. All is not as it seems, however, as Marcia deals with unexpected physical changes and developing mental abilities after an encounter with a meteorite. Marcia’s not the only one dealing with changes induced by an extraterrestrial rock, though.

Kiernan Connelly, who has received intriguing letters over several months, begins to question her lifestyle. Her casual sexual relationship with Rudi and passable acting career no longer fulfill her. As Kiernan makes changes in her life, she finds herself dealing with the strange reality of being able to hear others’ thoughts. Could it be related to her close encounter with a meteorite?

Jazzy Mitchell loves to tell stories, whether in the classroom or on paper. She taught English in the public schools of her hometown for a decade, giving back to the system which helped her so much. Her debut novel, Lost Treasures, received an Honorable Mention for the 2016 Rainbow Awards and was nominated in three categories for GCLS’s 2017 Goldie Awards: Debut Author, Traditional Contemporary Romance, and Cover Design. Besides writing, Jazzy teaches real estate law, writes fanfiction as Jazwriter, and facilitates energy work through her business, the Lightarian Institute. Jazzy lives in Portland, Oregon, enjoying life with her wife, three children, and two dogs.
