David Jones moved to Tuscany to claim some much-needed headspace. Hoping to focus on his philanthropic efforts and find love, he vows to steer clear of his family’s underworld business. But he’s dragged into an ugly web of organized crime when a good friend is heartbreakingly murdered…

Thrust into a leadership role, David navigates the treacherous mob world while becoming romantically entangled with a stunning young Foreign Intelligence agent. But even as he faces traitorous threats from within, his new beau’s standing with Italian authorities might be his fatal undoing.

A Change Is Coming ~ Fall 2021

Quote of the Day: Summer is dancing away as the leaves change into mosaic colors as a reminder of the season’s end leaving only memories of days gone by. CM Bowen

Autumn: A Transition Season

The annual seasonal changes are a reminder that nothing remains the same. Today, September 22nd at 3:20 pm EST is the autumnal equinox marking the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s an exciting time to breathe in the freshness of the crisp fall air and relax with a pumpkin spice latte while reading your favorite book.

What happens during the equinox?

The sun crosses the Earth’s equator at the time of the equinox, from the Northern Hemisphere into the Southern Hemisphere. During the autumnal equinox, day and night are balanced to about 12 hours each all across the world. The Earth’s tilt causes the change in season with the Northern Hemisphere beginning to feel the chill of fall after the warmth of summer.

Daylight in the Northern Hemisphere becomes shorter leading up to the winter solstice in December. The polar opposite happens in the Southern Hemisphere, where daylight will gradually grow longer until that hemisphere’s summer solstice in December.

Relax and Enjoy the Season
