Books and Books Coral Gables. Feb 10th, 2009. 8:00 p.m. Barbara Levenson, a longtime Miami resident who currently serves as a senior judge in the circuit court of Miami-Dade County, celebrates the release of her debut novel this evening. Fatal February (Oceanview Publishing) introduces protagonist Mary Magruder Katz. For Mary, a half Jewish, half Southern Baptist Miami criminal defense attorney, things are about to get completely complicated.
Mary’s life starts to spin out of control when a minor fender bender turns out to be an unlikely shot from Cupid’s bow. Carlos Martin, the other car’s driver, isn’t just a distracted driver – he’s distracting. Carlos is charming, handsome, and mysterious. Hardly before she knows what hit her, Mary breaks off her engagement, jumps into a sizzling romance with Carlos, gets fired from her former fiancé’s highbrow law firm, starts her own practice, and lands her first client, Lillian Yarmouth. February may be the shortest month of the year, but Mary’s got some long days – and nights – ahead. This month could be a real killer.
