forget her. She married an elderly wealthy man for the
security that the senior citizen can provide her. Two
marriages later, Deedee Eagle believes that the only woman
for him is Shasta Pearman, so he stops dating even though
the beautiful woman next door adores him.
Deedee and Shasta coincidentally meet at the bank where
she tells him that her husband has a job for him. From
that chance encounter Deedee's life spirals down into hell
culminating with his arrest for murdering Shasta's
husband. Though he clears his name, Deedee faces the worst
thing that ever happened to him and if cannot find a viable
alternative wonders if life remains worth living.
David Hunter entrances his audience from start to
finish so the reader needs to insure plenty of available
time for this one sitting tale. The hero is a decent
person caught in a tangle of loving the impossible. The
multi-layered plot works on all levels yet still provides
one surprise after another so that fans will feel
thoroughly entertained at the sunset of A SONNET FOR SHASTA.
