Book Tour: All the Wrong Places by Rebecca Fisher

Book Blurb:

In life I had suffered a thousand deaths, and in the midst of death I encountered true life.  I had looked in all the wrong places, until there, on a hill of ivy, I was found.”

Driving aimlessly through the stormy suburbs of San Francisco, Casey Wheeler is fleeing from her abusive and unfaithful husband with her five year old daughter Maddy asleep in the backseat.  With nowhere to go and no one to turn to, Casey loses control of her emotions and her car, crashing into a hillside below a mortuary.  Desperately seeking shelter, and more so independence, she finds herself taken in by the mortuary director who apprehensively offers her a job and a place to live.  As she stumbles through the ins and outs of her new and morbid surroundings, Casey is forced into a hostile custody battle with her relentless and increasingly violent husband.  In the midst of all the chaos, she finds a new family and even love in the eccentric and protective people of Golden Oaks Funeral Home.  But just when she has found all she could hope for, she will have to fight to the death to protect it. 
This semiautobiographical story of a single-mother and her journey to self-discovery, independence and a true understanding of love will keep readers captivated and yearning for more.

Snippet:


"And there it was, the good news I had hoped for, morphed into my greatest vulnerability. The freer and more empowered I became, the more Jerry’s hatred grew, as if one fed the other. I knew that the man I saw in that courtroom and this new version of myself could not coexist. Either something would change or something would perish, but there would be reckoning.”
