Author Amey Zeigler on Handbag and Book - Just Like Mom's? #readromance #MFRWorg #travelinginEurope


Okay, I have to tell you about this purse.
I bought this cross-body at Ross (anybody out there love Ross, too?) for a trip to Europe. It was big enough for a book (because I am always reading) and a water bottle.


I hauled it around France and Switzerland and it's the perfect size. When I got home, I noticed that my mom, who was watching my kids had the exact same purse only in red!

Twenty-three year-old investigative journalist, Andy Miller is armed with her many disguises and creativity to take down the riff-raff of Saint Louis. When her stepbrother is murdered by the mob, Andy soon discovers she’s out of her depth.

Enter Hugh Donaldson who has reasons of his own for discovering the murderer. He’ll use everything in his power to achieve that, including lying to Andy about his past. Dangerous as he is attractive, his martial arts skills and his quirky ways raise Andy’s suspicions.

Although Andy balks at his lies, Hugh’s charms, twenty-inch biceps, and electrifying blue eyes are difficult to resist. Striking out on their own, Hugh and Andy try to outwit each other as they traverse North America tracking down people connected to the case.

As clues disappear and the body count climbs, Andy and Hugh must trust each other and use their combined skills to bring the murderer to justice.

“Let go of me.” She scrambled around powerless against his strength.

“Are you still resisting?” He bent his head to whisper in her ear, his face lost its kindness. “If you work alone, then I will use you as bait. You will go bumbling around in the dark and I will capitalize on your bumbling and stumbling. I will get what I want.

With or without you.”

Andy finally relaxed her body. He hated taking the spirit out of her. But it was the only way to keep her from getting killed.

“Okay, I concede,” she said.

He smiled inwardly, the rush of victory, conquering a well-matched foe. “I knew I could persuade you.”

Her smile warmed him, he released his body from hers. In a flash, her leg flew up and hit him square in the nads. She opened the door behind her, and slipped out by saying, “Brad asked me to do this. So I will do this.”

Through the purple haze of pain, he called out, “Where will you go Andy Baker?” The front door opened. “They’re hunting you,” he called.

The door slammed shut again.

He smiled despite the throbbing.

He liked her.

Welcome, Amey! and thanks for sharing your Handbag and Book. I bought one bag online in a beautiful sage suede and later, bought a black one at a store, not realizing they were the same bag, only different colors. LOL

I once bought a messenger bag at Hot topic to carry my laptop and notebooks to work. My daughter, who was in high school at the time, saw it and was appalled. She had the same bag to carry books back and forth to school. She said, "Oh great, now I have to throw mine away!" I asked why, and she said, "I just CAN'T carry the same bag as my mother!" She shoved it under her bed. She's been to college and had lived with her boyfriend for nine years. Yet, I have no doubt that darn bag is still upstairs under her old bed.

What a great purse. Having the cross body strap was probably great for your trip. Good luck with the book. I love the cover!
