In Ruthe Ogilvie’s new mystery suspense novel “In the Wings” (published by Trafford Publishing), heroine Andora Jordan struggles to balance a deteriorating marriage, a philandering husband, and the sensual attraction of a former lover.

With her marriage in shambles, she is confronted with the sordid details of her husband's secret life. Andora must find a way to earn a living and provide for her young daughter, Midge, while outwitting her husband's murderous plans.

An excerpt from “In the Wings”:

’Our life has become stagnant,’ Paul explained. ’We’re in a rut. We both need a change - new faces, new places –‘ He broke off.

Here it comes! Andy thought. We’re finally going on that cruise!

Paul rose and began to pace nervously. ’We need a break from each other,’ he said. ’I think we should - you know - date other people - get a new perspective. I’d like to date other women, and you could date other men. It should be fun.’

Andy’s heart almost stopped. She gulped, gaping at him, unable to move. Was she hearing right, or was she dreaming? At first she thought he might be joking. Sometimes he would say something in all seriousness, then laugh, and she would know he was teasing. But this time it was real.”

Despite these setbacks, Andy overcomes her distress and her pain and learns to be her own woman. Her success draws Paul dangerously back into her life, but with the help of an old flame she perseveres and finds the happy ending she always wanted.
