Elusive government agents, a mysterious doctor, a vanishing detective, emotional rivalry, characters with secrets, twists and turns that keep you guessing.... it's all here in the exciting novel, Velvet Hellion!

Imagine you are in the 1970's, without a cellphone or iPad, living in a Virginia town that is an odd mixture of old and new.  You run an Arabian horse farm, which you hope will become successful, yet there's a small secret in your past which could ruin your dream, making you the prime suspect in your husband’s murder. You only have one good friend, but soon find yourself involved with others after a seemingly innocent game of poker. 

As events unfold, you become suspicious of the men around you, unsure who to trust, while friends become entangled in a web of deception, government agents, and are forced to face their own emotional rivalry.
For 21 year-old Nicole Tyler, nothing is ever easy; but often, it's comical.

This light-hearted mystery is not without its suspenseful, dangerous moments.

About the Author:
  Rachael Allen is a disabled writer and native of Parkville, MD, USA, who now lives in England with her husband. Growing up in Maryland, she had a deep love for horses and cats, which played a part in her writing at an early age, as she completed her first book when she was only nine years old. She enjoyed creating poetry, artwork, playing guitar and composing songs, until several chronic illnesses changed her life.
Velvet Hellion was a labor of love, born over many years as Rachael found herself becoming housebound, due to her illnesses.

Rachael wishes to thank Mark Barnes for his assistance in this project, and his lovely cover design.
