If you love romance novels with a twist of suspense, then you will love Hugh Tetlow's novel, 'Francesca.' For Francesca, life is turned upside down as she struggles with a loveless marriage, contraband diamonds, a new love interest, and a brother with memory loss.

In his newly published book, 'Francesca,' Hugh Tetlow takes the phrase "when it rains, it pours," to a whole new level as life for Francesca goes from bad to worse as she struggles to come to terms with a loveless marriage, deal with the seedy underworld of diamond smuggling, and discover new feelings about a new man in her life that causes her to question her previous notions on love, life, happiness, and her future.

Francesca Westmoreland is a young woman in her thirties living in a loveless marriage with her husband Hector for 12 years. It is a marriage of convenience that leaves her feeling empty and unfulfilled. One day, her brother Ned is in a plane crash which leaves him badly injured and in a coma. On her way home from visiting her brother in the hospital, Francesca is in a car accident. She is rescued by Philip Lester who takes her to recuperate at his home where he and his daughter Emma live. Francesca finds herself drawn to their warmth and loving care which causes her to explore feelings she has suppressed for many years. It is not long before she learns that the plane crash may have been the result of sabotage and her brother was carrying contraband diamonds on the plane. When her brother awakens from the coma, he has no memory and is unable to help resolve the diamond mystery. The events that unfold involve Francesca becoming embroiled in a diamond smuggling plot that has the potential to harm not only her, but also her brother.

'Francesca' is a definite page-turner with many twists and turns that will keep readers engaged from start to end.

"'Francesca' is a very sentimental character study entwined in mystery and danger. It is not just a story of finding true love, but a story of a woman finding herself in the midst of danger and intrigue. I highly recommend 'Francesca' to readers who enjoy well written and researched romantic stories with plots that involve suspense and danger."
