The girl in the Plain Brown Wrapper
Travis and Helena had a wonderful love affair after the tragic death of her husband a long time ago and after that brief, affair they parted ways never to see each other again. Years later he receives a letter from Helena requesting his help with one of her daughters who after a second miscarriage is suicidal and also telling him that she herself has terminal cancer. Now Travis isn't around her when she dies and only arrives home to a letter from her lawyer with a check for $25,000 and instructions on on a final job for her. She wants Travis to help her daughter and feels he is the only one that can get through to her. His love for her and her family make this a not so difficult decision and he heads to Florida immediately. But what he finds there is worse than what his dear friend could have ever expected. First there is the couple that try to kill him because they think he is there because of Maurie's husband Tom, then the woman who tried to kill him turns up dead. What are all these meds they are shoving on Maurie and does she really need them? Even though the book started out a little slow I have to say I loved every minute of it and when it ended I wanted more. I can honestly say I would rate this book a four out of five stars.
