Three childhood friends, Lauren, Maddison, and Jennifer, had their whole lives planned out. Their future was bright. All three of them had been accepted to Spellman University. This would be the beginning of the rest of their lives. The girls had rented a beach house for the summer and had plans of lying out in the sun and pool parties and lots of shopping, until tragedy strikes.

“Murder or Marriage,” a fictional novel written by author Raisa Brown, tells a story of love and loss as their bond of friendship is tested to the hilt. While enjoying the company of Lauren and Jennifer on their spring break, Maddison learns that Craig, her brother was shot in the head and is in critical condition, barely clinging to his life. They cut their vacation short, pack up and return to their hometown in San Antonio only to find out that Craig was murdered by gang members as he tried to help his friend Ramsey who was being robbed in front of an ATM machine while they were both on the unfortunate side of town.

Unable to console one another, this experience left them scarred for life. The girls become so distant with one another. Craig’s death took such a toll on them and they disappear from one another’s lives. They will soon find out that the things that matter to them most including fame, true love and marriage would eventually have deadly consequences. But how would they navigate life without one another? They say time heals all wounds but will it be the same for Lauren, Maddison, and Jennifer?

A compelling story of true friendship, love, loss, hope, faith and healing amidst life’s many trials, “Murder or Marriage” will keep readers glued from the very first page up to the last. With its many twists and turns and a couple of surprises in between, this brilliantly written literary fiction is a must read.
