Brighton Publishing announces print release of “Maggie Vargas: On the Run” by Beth Otto
With a penchant for sharp and revealing dialogue, author Beth Otto crafts a sumptuous blend of dramatic settings, punchy characters, and a riveting plot
The seemingly quiet, Midwestern town of Rockford, Michigan lays claim to a dark and puzzling secret…
Years ago a fortune was stolen. A fortune so vast, many would risk their very lives searching for it. Yet, in spite of their tireless efforts, the treasure would remain lost to the ages, with no hope of finding it…until now.
Maggie Vargas has what many would call an ability, others…a talent, but to Maggie, it is…a gift. But despite her lifelong efforts to keep that gift a secret, her luck is about to run out.
Maggie’s psychic ability is soon discovered by the Mafia’s “Don.” Before long, the Don becomes convinced that Maggie is the only person capable of helping him find the all-elusive stolen fortune.
In the extraordinary journey that ensues, Maggie and her gift are put through a myriad of challenges. Now, not only must she free herself from the Mafia’s stranglehold on her, but she must also reconcile the romantic feelings she has for the Don’s son, Dominic Rossi.
“With a bona fide gift for storytelling, Beth Otto unfurls her plot slowly and steadily while grabbing—and holding—her readers imagination until the last page,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing. “The mafia…a beautiful psychic…and a lost fortune waiting to be found—classic ingredients for this captivating tale.”
Beth Otto grew up in a small suburb of Grand Rapids, Michigan. She attended Grand Valley State University, and was lucky in love when she met her husband of twenty-four years while vacationing in Hawaii. Today, they live with their sons in northeastern Wisconsin where she continues to stay true to her “inner girl” in a house full of men.
