up she would be a country vet in the manner of Dr.
Herriot. When she opened up her practice in a small town
in central Florida, she felt fulfilled professionally but
she had no friends and felt isolated from the rest of the
Her feelings of desperation come to an end when she
meets Tom Jenks, a stud muffin who wants her to treat his
lion cub. There is an immediate electric attraction
between the duo but Desi tries to fight it because she
doesn't want to be in thrall to any man. When he takes her
skydiving, she becomes an adrenaline junkie and falls even
deeper under Tom's spell. As time goes on she discovers
the secrets he is keeping from her but is unable to walk
away from him until the day comes when he expects her to
commit an unspeakable act.
After reading SKY BLUES, the audience will better
comprehend how seemingly intelligent people could be fooled
by a Ted Bundy persona. Observing Desi's gradual fall into
blind obedience and acquiescence with Tom's plans is a
fascinating yet scary process. Vicki Hendricks tells a
thrilling story that draws readers into the gut of the tale.
