Perry Connors if a successful businessman living in Arizona, who has just opened a new business venture. Perry has what could be equated as ‘the Midas Touch’, but despite his overwhelming success, he’s an unhappy man.
At the root of his discontent are chronic and disturbing dreams, not nightmares per se, but dreams that leave him shaken, exhausted and confused. His ex wife Mollie and a female judge he spurned, Annette Black, are set on destroying him. And his personal assistant, Lillia Donovan, has her own plans in store for Perry, the least of which is seduction and intimate control over his financial empire.
Perry begins seeing a renowned psychiatrist named Mickey Vicente – a beautiful, solid and compassionate woman who is desperate to help him overcome his troubles. But Perry doesn’t make her job any easier with his reluctant gravitation toward Lillia, who continues to eerily draw him toward her despite his personal dislike of her.
What forces are at work on Perry are for him and Mickey to discover – before it’s too late to save Perry from ruination. And before they do, they both must confront a real evil that will test their burgeoning love, their determination and their very souls.
Until Next Time is a well-written romantic mystery that keeps the reader turning the pages to find the truth. Ms. Alexander handles her audience deftly, revealing the truth layer by intricate layer. Her narrative and dialog are well blended to provide a very smooth read, and her characters exceptionally well wrought – this book is a tease – in more ways than one!
