Hi, I’m Dianne L. Hagan, an award-winning author. Thanks for visiting my blog. The Rightful Future (A Cadence Mystery, Book 1), my debut mystery novel that follows Marian and Lester Greene, an interracial couple, is now available.
What’s the book about?
Interracially married Marian and Lester Greene retire to the small, sleepy town of Cadence, New York. On day one, as they walk down Main Street, they hear racist comments. Married for almost five decades, that doesn’t surprise them. But when Marian, who accepts the job as the local librarian, finds a dead body in the library stacks, the couple suspects Cadence might have a surprise or two in store for them. Within a day, despite the authorities’ disbelief, the Greenes figure out there are no coincidences. Their lives are in danger. When they meet Enoch Shenandoah, who tells them he is there to protect them, the trio seeks the truth and almost dies in the process. The racially tragic history of the town and a covenant agreed upon 100 years before inextricably tie all three of them to the town, its founders, the past, and its redemptive future. This fast-paced thriller will scare you, make you laugh at unexpected moments, keep you entrenched in the past and wondering about the future, and show you that, occasionally, the improbable is possible. All in eight days.
In a nutshell
The Rightful Future is a multicultural mystery story that tantalizes with a mystery inside a mystery. The book is a parable of an America that still struggles with its past and is divided about its future. I hope you’ll add it to your reading list. I’d love to hear your comments and see your reviews.
