Lady Jane Grey

A movie star, Lorne Bennett was know as the West Side Kid, and for more than 20 years has managed to stay out of the spotlight and make a new life for himself. Laura, naturally has many unanswered questions about her parents and her father’s involvement in her mother’s death. When Lorne suddenly resurfaces, Laura has an opportunity to finally get those questions answered.

And her resolution provides her not only a answer to that early mystery, but also peace with her life. A quick and enjoyable story.
