A Novel of

Trust – Deceit – Defense

Thirty-five days out from midterm elections, Kathryn Bradford falls for the only man to turn her head in twenty-five years of marriage, a handsome, soft-spoken staffer on her husband’s senatorial campaign.  Nelson Bradford’s bid for office is the most widely watched race in America, dubbed “the Civil War.”  The opposing candidate is Peter Bradford, his older brother, who is yet again the more beloved sibling.  As Nelson shakes hands and kisses babies in hopes of narrowing Peter’s lead, his plastered-on smile is less convincing than ever – especially at home.  Kathryn is wealthy, beautiful, and a closet romantic, and she runs headlong into an affair that could turn her husband’s campaign into yesterday’s news.  And that’s exactly what her new lover has in mind.  Burnt Incense is a story of the politics of a marriage, trial by fire, and ultimately America’s most widely watched murder case.

Review by Kas:

When Eileen gave me a copy of this book, I absolutely knew that I did not have time to read it right away. It would have to wait. Then I decided to take a quick look to get a feel for the story. My bedtime got moved by several hours since I was not able to stop reading until I finished the entire book! The ending was completely unexpected, and really quite perfect! If you like murder mysteries, political intrigue and stories with intricate plots, I think you will enjoy Burnt Incense.
