Bad Accounts by Kate
"Top notch accountant Pia might have suspected her
bosses of cooking the books, but when you’re fifty-two
and jobs are scarce, it’s easy to look the other way. Or
it is until you find out that your employers might be
managing the finances of a drug cartel, right there in
your hometown. Stealing a few files to implicate her
bosses seemed like a good idea… until Pia finds a gun in
her front yard, apparently dropped by an inept hitman.
Maybe she should have listened to Brad and quit her job
instead of absconding with the incriminating documents.
But it’s too late for regrets now, and she’s a marked
woman. Luckily for Pia, Brad puts his surfing on hold
long enough to help get her out of town and down to
Ocean Beach. Unfortunately, that might not be enough.
Crossing the border into Mexico may be the only answer.
From Monterey, California all the way to Puerto
Vallarta, Mexico, aging gangsters, bungling rent-a-cops,
and an out-of-his-element hitman, thwart Pia’s every
move. But with the help of a few surfers and their
friends, she’s determined to not only stay alive, but to
see the drug cartel shut down once and for all. "

During the time of Nixon and Kennedy, United States’
reach was slowly inching around the globe as more and more initiatives
to help out other countries were put into action by the government. One
of these was the Peace Corp who sent volunteers all around the globe.
Two of those who were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to
help were the Randles. David and Inga Randle were assigned in Brazil,
and there they found a family. In Rio Branco, the Randles found a family
in Aristedes, Maria, and their son, Neguinho.
As the years passed, the relationship between both families was tested
by time and distance. Years were spent apart, but fate brought them
together again and again to be a blessing to each other.
Join the Randles as they explore the culture and jungles of Brazil,
learn its customs, get to know its people, and discover the heart of a
