About the Book: Traci’s Story
Traci Collins has endured a rough childhood. From taking care of her drunken mother to overcoming a horrible accident that almost killed her at the age of fourteen. Now, at the age of twenty-seven, she has one more demon to deal with: her addiction to alcohol. As Traci struggles to get her life together, she seeks help for her addiction and finds love with Marc Drake, a handsome criminal defense attorney.
While attending group sessions, she meets three strangers: Olivia, Norman, and Kevin. When Traci accepts their invitation to join them for coffee, she learns they all have a story to tell. As they become close friends and start to trust one another, their stories begin to surface.
Doing her best to stay on the road to sobriety, Traci’s world begins to turn upside down. She soon finds herself in a tug of war over Marc Drake. Marcy, her rival co-worker, causes chaos for Traci by threatening her life over the one man she cannot have.
Finally, Traci will be asked to keep quiet when she learns of, her new best friend, Olivia’s dark secret, a secret that could impact her life forever.

She hired publicist Tiffany Braxton of Midnight Management and honed in on her craft by entering writing competitions and refocusing her home office into a writer’s library. Through radio interviews and speaking at public schools, she found a way to educate and entertain. Her strong interest in law landed her a spot working for the State Public Defender’s Office where she did intake at the Milwaukee Police Department. During her experience, Marguerite found an interest in using criminal investigation as a basis for her novels.
