Reminiscent of the style of famous British author, Kate Atkinson and yet with her own unique voice, Jackie spins a finely-written story with exceptional character portrayals in an unpredictable plot.
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 isn’t even over before trouble arrives. Larry is being followed and just eight days later, he disappears while scuba diving. Kelly’s life has been turned upside down; and to her, things seem like they couldn’t get any worse.
But when Kelly 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 be delighted with the early print release of The Bride Stands Alone,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Jackie delights in stringing together a series of twists and turns that make it impossible to stop reading until yet another page has been feverishly read.”
Jackie Ullerich is a graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles with a degree in Theater Arts and English. She is a former English and drama teacher, and has since become an acclaimed author in her field. The Bride Stands Alone is her second published novel.
