Money can't buy happiness...or can it?  Join me and author, Dr. Joyce A. Brown, as we talk about deception, betrayal, and weakness from her new novel, What You Can Get Away With.  In this novel, Jared, Alicia and Lily are all searching for the right thing …but in the wrong places.   


What You Can Get Away With:

Jared Riley, an aging semi-pro basketball player sees that his chance at fame is slipping away, then grabs for one last sexual venture before settling in for the lifestyle and comfort he signed up for when he married Lily, his upwardly mobile wife. He is inexplicably drawn into the schemes of Alicia Connors, a young girl struggling to scratch her way out of a miserable existence who pursues Jared with a vengeance. She has an intricate plan to fulfill her own dreams of marriage and family in Jared’s arms, and will stop at nothing to have him. One night of passion spirals into a series of unfortunate events that Jared can’t bring under control and impacts his family in a way that he never imagined. 

Lily Riley, a beautiful socialite who comes from money, easily achieves success at the boardroom table but can’t find the winning strategy to make her husband remain committed to her. When she walked down the aisle with Jared, she never realized that she was trying to fulfill her dream of a perfect marriage, with an imperfect man. When his recent exploits causes a scandal in their small town, she is totally unaware that he has also brought deadly forces into their lives. 

Will Lily finally wake up to the fact that her husband’s high-risk behavior has arrived on her doorstep? Will Alicia’s family avenge her by taking Jared for the rough ride he deserves? Will Jared survive a deadly reckoning?
