NOVEMBER, 2017 LAURA’S UPCYCLED LIFE The Plot: Laura McAuliff‟s last relationship ended badly... So badly her ex- boyfriend, a criminal lawyer gave her fifty-grand to vanish, before his assas- sin-client made her disappear forever! Hiding out in a tiny house behind a friend‟s barn in Maine, she upcycles furniture into one-of-a-kind treasures for profit. She spots some Mad Men furniture, but another flipper claims it at the same time. At an impasse, they reluctantly split the set. Trace Dixon is more than he seems. He‟s an ex-military bad-ass, and when he learns why she‟s hiding he‟s determined to protect her. He wants her to testify and be free to recycle her life.
