Janis Stockwell has finally gotten what she most wants, or so she thinks. She is the new partner in an all male law firm, and she is not unaware that it comes with a price. When her boss tells her she must have her portrait done by the star of her high school dreams, she has to psyche herself into going to their first meeting.

Michael Dumont is a struggling artist. When he decided to study art instead of going to LSU, his father disowned him. He is stunned when Janis “the mouse” Stockwell walks into his house to discuss having her portrait done, and he completely puts his foot in his mouth when he thinks she is one of his models.

When Bettis, a man Janis put in jail, is released, her boss wants her to get out of town for her own safety. However, Janis is no coward and she refuses to change her life to suit some criminal. Everything changes when Michael stops by in an effort to make up for their first meeting and Bettis calls and threatens her life. Suddenly, she finds herself living in close quarters with the man of her dreams. But will either of them give in to what they feel, or will a killer strike and take their chance away?

Emotionally rich, The Michaelangelo Blues is rife with shifting passions. From the beginning, it is clear that while both may want each other, Janis and Michael are too afraid to take a chance. The author does a great job of piloting the reader through both the wavering emotions and the suspense of waiting for a killer to make his move. The Michaelangelo Blues is a solid story, rampant with subtle romance and dark uncertainty. It is not to be missed.
