At a posh Victorian home in San Francisco’s exclusive Pacific Heights, aspiring actress Kelly Myers attends a political fundraiser. There, she meets powerful construction executive Larry Townsend. They date, fall in love, and soon make plans to marry—with the perfect honeymoon in Acapulco.
The wedding hasn’t even finished before trouble arrives. Larry is being followed and just eight days later, he disappears while scuba diving. Kathy’s life has been turned upside down and to her, things seem like they couldn’t get any worse.
But when Kathy returns home to Los Angeles and finds her apartment and Larry’s house have been broken into and demolished, it’s clear nothing is what it seems. Nothing, including Larry’s disappearance and presumed death, is an accident. And this is only the beginning.
From San Francisco and Los Angeles all the way to Istanbul and Ankara, Jackie Ullerich weaves an immensely entertaining, tightly-woven tale of deception and greed.
“Fans of Jackie Ullerich will delight with The Bride Stands Alone,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “She has created a voice all her own in mystery fiction, unmistakably her own, down to every plot twist, every barb, every bit of wit and wry humor which keep the pages turning and readers guessing what might possibly happen next.”
Jackie Ullerich is a graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles with a degree in Theater Arts and English. Ullerich is a high school English and drama teacher, and has since become a Master Teacher in her field. The Bride Stands Alone is her second novel; At Risk was also published by Brighton Publishing LLC.
